Squirtle, surely the most famous Water Pokémon in the world, not only made its big entrance as one of the Starter Pokémon in 1996, but is still very popular today.

This crochet Squirtle is exclusively crocheted with slip stitches and single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The depicted Amigurumi Squirtle has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 4.5 cm.

Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Shell: Place the shell on the back of the body as shown on the pictures. Sew the shell to the body with a Maroon colored thread. Hide the leftover threads inside the body.

Tail: After the shell is attached to the back of the body, sew the tail onto the shell.

Then roll up the tail as shown in the picture. Use a Cloud colored thread and push it with a tapestry needle through the rolled up part of the tail and sew it together.

Eyebrows and Mouth: Embroider mouth and eyebrows with a Black thread as shown in the pictures.
