free pokemon crochet pattern - sentret


Hi everyone, and welcome to a new free crochet pattern! For those non-Pokemon friends (just spend some time with me and we will fix that) and generation I die-hards, please say hello to Sentret, a cute normal-type Pokemon which was introduced in the generation II games. Described in the Pokedex as small and furry, Sentret is one of those weaker Pokemon you find at the beginning of a game, and might not leave much of an impression.

So it was a surprise when a friend (the same one who commissioned Espeon I might add) asked if I could make one for a friend of his, who claims Sentret is his favourite! Hey, no judgement here, it was just a surprise to find that Sentret did leave such an impresson on someone. Unsurprisingly, there are no crochet patterns out there for this little-known guy, so I set about writing a pattern myself.

I am delighted with the result, as was my friend, and so much so that for Christmas I made another for my big brother who, although Sentret isn't his favourite, will always catch one early on to use as his HM mule.

If I'm speaking another language to you now, I am sorry and please bear with me! I want to share you with you a FREE crochet pattern so you can make your own Sentret; perhaps you are a closet Sentret fan too, or you know someone who loves Pokemon and will welcome and amiguruimi gift such as this. Alternatively, make one for a child to introduce them to the world of Pokemon, or advertise him as a fun, happy teddy-like creature that kids can cuddle. Regardless, I hope you enjoy the pattern and don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions!

- Sew the arms to the sides of the body, making sure to position the FO point of the arms underneath.
- Sew the feet to the bottom of the body, positioning them slightly forward of the centre of the bottom.
- Sew the tail to the back of the body, positioning it in the centre of the lower back which should allow Sentret to stand, leaning on the tail.
- Sew the ears to the top of the body.
- Sew the inner tummy into the centre of the outer tummy, and then sew the completed tummy to the front of the body, positioning it directly above the feet, just touching the top of the feet.
- Embroider Sentret's eyes and mouth using black and white yarn, positioning using the image above as a guide.
