Pokemon Amigurumi: Lycanroc Midnight Form

This week’s October-themed plush is Lycanroc midnight form! I meant to have it ready for the full moon, but I suppose a week later is fine too.

This past week had been fairly busy, with family visiting from Minnesota – a lot of the last weekend was spent playing as the “tickle monster”; check out these battle scars I got while I was chasing my three younger cousins.

I think I try to make my projects small, but when I actually make it small, I don’t like the result as much in retrospect. Nowadays I aim to have a project be no smaller than 36 single crochets in a round when forming the head. With this size, the head base fits comfortably in my hand, like a small baseball.

I was recently asked about how I do the details of the eyes and mouth – to explain briefly, I cut out pieces of felt to the shape, roughly stitch it in place, go over the edges with thread, and then paint the details within the eye or mouth. I am hoping to make a separate post about this, but this is the process in a nutshell.

As usual, the body started off pretty straightforward and then it became a lot more detailed towards the end. The body base was as small as I could comfortably make it, and it looked like it was the size of a small child’s heart or kidney.

The arms and legs were long and gorilla-like in relation to each other, which was exactly the look that I was aiming for. I like this part about the midnight form for some reason, probably because it reminds me of the werewolf from “Ginger Snaps”. I guess I prefer gangly werewolves over muscular ones.

Ah.

A lot of the details ended up bulking up the plush, especially when it came to the rocky mane in the back. It consisted of three separate pieces, where the top was fastened onto the head and neck, the back spines were attached onto the hunched back base, and the tube portion was connected below. Somehow the limbs are able to support the top-heavy design.

After waiting for the nighttime, here are the final results; just kidding, it was night by the time I completed this plush, and I took some photos outside:

Thanks for reading! This month isn’t over yet, so there’s lots of things I’ll be preoccupied with.

    1. Hi Jai, I’m glad to hear that there’s a lot of interest in these patterns! Most of these patterns I have in a rough format, and I would need to take time to convert them into a distributable form. I do have a few free patterns on this blog, if you would like to try them out! There is one for scyther, kirlia, and tangela
