Pokemon go – crochet version


Too hot to work on my Mandala at the moment so inspired by my kids love of Pokemon and the new craze of Pokemon go, I decided to make some small crochet Pokemon for them to find 🙂 I also needed to use up some of my teeny tiny bits of yarn scraps left over from my Mandala Madness blanket.

Had a look on Ravelry for patterns and found to my delight Nicole’s Nerdy Knots. She has created for free, some great teeny patterns that are really straightforward to do. Although they are free, you can make a donation to her page if you fancy. I have not been asked to do this on her behalf, just felt her stuff was good so we should 🙂


Stupidly I only took photos on my phone so forgive the quality and enjoy the following creations.




This last one, a Skarmory, did not have a pattern that I could find so for the first time in my crochet life I had a go at making something without a pattern. Luckily the internet is helpful with plenty of pictures. I am thrilled with the result and now wish I had written down what I did!!!

Birthday cake request……make me a Goomy cake please Mum….hmmmmmm

My middle son turns 21 today and loves Pokemon. His initial request was for a Skarmory cake. Once googled I decided that was a tad tricky and so I replied,  “find me a cake shaped Pokemon”. The offspring complied and suggested a Goomy. Actually really enjoyed making this today, I haven’t made a novelty cake for quite a while. Not quite cake boss standard but not too bad at all.
