Completed: Mini Scyther Amigurumi

It has been a while since I’ve completed a new crocheted project – I didn’t realize it would be so quick to put together this plush! I’ve written a rough pattern for anyone to try it out.

I feel like making a series of not-too-popular pokemon amigurumi. If you have any suggestions for some unloved pokemon, send a comment to this post!

    1. I have confidence that you’d have enough time to make this guy, it’s about 11cm in height. I think putting the pieces together took the longest time.
