Large Piplup Pattern

Piplup should end up being 12” tall. As for yarn, I used Red Heart Super Saver with a size G hook,

but feel free to use what you want, as long as the stitches are constant. The light blue is called ‘Aruba Sea’, and the darker blue, ‘Blue’. I also used a basic white yarn, and the feet were yellow yarn leftovers that I know longer know the actual name of.

I have no issues with people using my pattern, as long as they don’t make a profit off the pattern, or piplup. Also, please don’t copy the pattern when putting it on other websites, just paste the link to the original pattern.

Thanks, and have fun crocheting a piplup!

Also if possible, please let me know how the pattern works out or if there are any issues with it.

Assembly:

Cape:

Attach the two front circles to the top of the cape, which is where you should have ended.  I had the circles overlap with a sc from each.  To attach I used a slip stitch since it goes under the head and won’t be seen.  Then, attach the big feather on the bottom back of the cape, with the little feather slightly above it. There should be a gap between where the circles and cape meet.  This is where the wings will be underneath, so please keep that in mind when you start attaching to the body.

Head:

For the head, attach the mask, then the nose, and then the crown.  I’d also recommend getting all three positioned how you want them, before permanently attaching anything.  Using black and white felt for the eyes, attach to the mask.  I didn’t use a certain size.  Instead I started off big and slowly trimmed the eyes down until they looked right on the face. The black ended up being about an inch wide, and two inches long.  The white part ended up being about half an inch wide, and an inch long. Finally, attach the cape/circles combo to the bottom of the head, accounting for the slight gap between the cape/circle which should be onto of the wings.

Body:

First attach the wings to the body how you want them.  Then attach the head with the cape/circles combo on top. The head is rather big, so make sure it is attached securely to the body. Also, remember the gap in between should be on top of the wings. Once done, attach the feet to the bottom of the body.  Piplup should be able to stand on the feet without any support. Finally add the white buttons to the front of the body.
