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.

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.
