Pokemon Pikachu

from Handmade by Stefanie
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Pokemon Pikachu
Pokemon Pikachu
Pokemon Pikachu

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increasing & Decreasing
  • Duplicate Stitch
  • Knitting in the Round

Pattern Description:

Both of my nephews are really into Pokemon (I suppose if anyone has kids under the age of 10, this is a ridiculously obvious statement, but bear with me), so for my nephew Jake's birthday this month, I thought I should knit him his very own Pikachu. Even though there are loads of cute Pokemon crochet amigurumi out there, I consider my newfound crochet skills remedial at best. Yep, better stick to the knitting on this one! Of the very few knitted Pikachu patterns I found, I couldn't find one that looked quite right, so I set to work making up my own!


20 sts and 26 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch in the round - gauge is not terribly important for this project, however.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Pikachu will stand approximately 9 inches tall.


  • 2 skeins Muench Family in Yellow or 160 yards of any worsted-weight yarn (MC)
  • Approx 25 yards each of black (CC1), red (CC2) and white (CC3) worsted-weight yarn
  • Darning Needle

You Will Also Need:

  • Set of US #6 DPN's (or circular needles if you prefer magic loop)
  • Poly-fil stuffing
  • Stitch holder or scrap yarn

Suggested yarn:

200 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Muench Family
