Eeeveelutions

Since a lot of the traffic to this site seems to be for the eeveelutions, I decided it was time for them to get their own page, with links to all the patterns in one place.

After I made a piplup for myself, and an eevee, for a friend, my other friends started requesting stuff.  One wanted a vaporeon, and another wanted an umbreon.  I figured if I was going to do two of the eeveelutions, why not do all of them?

Of course, that was before I realized I was going to have to create patterns for leafeon, flareon, jolteon, and glaceon. Completing all of them took about two months. Some like umbreon, espeon, and vaporeon that already had patterns, took a couple days to do.  The others took a week or two to do, since I had to create the patterns.

For those interested in making their eeveelution collection, I have a couple recommendations.

First, use the yarn you already have. The reason why vaporeon was my first was because I already had the leftover blues from piplup and other projects.  Also realize that one skein of yarn can go a long way.  The color I used for leafeon’s yellow, also worked for vaporeon’s ears, flareon’s collar, tail, and head piece.  That’s why I did leafeon and flareon after vaporeon.

The second recommendation I have is to start with the easiest ones first.  Umbreon is probably one of the easiest to do pattern wise, though the black does it make it hard to see the stitches. Vaporeon, espeon, and flareon aren’t that bad.  They have their challenges but are easier than leafeon, jolteon, and glaceon.  Leafeon just requires patience with doing all the crooked parts, and all the little pieces. Jolteon requires patience as well with all the spike.  Glaceon though, requires starting a piece in one color, than switching to another, while still ensuring the transition and diamond shapes look right.

Below are some better quality pictures, more group shots, and links to all the patterns.

Glaceon:

Last, is the eevee that started at all. Please keep in mind at the time it had been several years since I last crocheted, and was my first try at amigurumi. If I could go back I’d redo the face and attaching the legs, but what matters is that my friend loves her eevee.

  1. I really like your patterns 🙂 but when I wanted to try Glaceon bit when I clicked on the link I came on the page of Leafon. So can you change the link? Thank you!

  2. When I saw the new Eeveelution, Sylveon, I thought it would be fairly easy to make. However, I am swamped with requests for a Gastly evolution chain, Absol, Totodile, and a bunch of others plus my own requests for Magikarp, Gyarados, Feebas, and Milotic, that I don’t have time to make one. 😦 I know you’re probably swamped with requests, too, but I was wondering if it’s possible you could make a pattern for Sylveon? You did such a great job on the others, you were the first person I thought of to ask! You’ll probably get this request sometime anyway, if you haven’t already. Thanks in advance!

    • I’ve been planning on doing Sylveon, there’s just so little information available at the moment. Once more information such as its type (fingers crossed for flying or dragon, I’ve been wanting a flying eevee for a long time) and some more pictures are released, I plan on starting Sylveon. With five months to go, hopefully Nintendo will start releasing/teasing additional details about the game and the new generation. Thanks for thinking of me and asking, and good luck with all those requests.

      • I did hear that it’s possible they might create an 18th type just for Sylveon and Xerneas (and possibly other X and Y Pokémon). This is just a rumor, but I think it’s pretty logical. The type is Fairy. Although it is logical, based on previous Pokémon’s data, that means that various other Pokémon would have to have their type changed. The Cleffa evolution chain is dubbed “Star shaped/Fairy/Fairy” Pokémon, and then there is the egg group Fairy that includes Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Togetic, and Marill evolution chains. There are fans who want a new Light Type, but that would be the same outcome as above. I hope they release Sylveon’s new type soon, but I think they haven’t because even they don’t know what type it’ll be yet.

      • I haven’t heard about the new type, but that is interesting. I don’t know if you’ve seen the pic, but google ‘sylveon’ and go to images. There’s a pic with eevee in the center and all the eeveelutions spaced around eevee in such a way that they are across from a pokemon that they are super effective against (Leafeon and Vaporeon, Espeon and Umbreon, and Flareon and Glaceon). By having Jolteon against Sylveon, the theory is Sylveon is either a flying type, weak against electric, or a ground type which would be effective against electric. The flying type is more believable since Sylveon’s name in other languages usually means nymph, and Sylveon is the lightest of the eeveelutions. However, nymph and Sylveon’s light weight could fit your fairy theory as well.
