Butterfree Amigurumi – Pokemon Crochet Pattern

Bye Bye Butterfree has always been one of my favorite episodes from the Pokemon TV show. And so, I finally took the time to write up the free crochet pattern for Butterfree Amigurumi and he’s the latest addition to my continuing pattern series of “Gotta Crochet ’em All” Pokemon Amigurumi!

Butterfree Amigurumi definitely takes after a butterfly! His features include a purple body, oval red eyes, black antennas, and my favorite part, his beautiful wings!

He also sports a yellow scarf to make him look spiffier! The better for him to catch the eyes of the lady butterfrees 😉

You can, of course, make him with the Pokeball Pod set (also a free pattern on my blog). His wings enclose around him and you can think of his pod as his chrysalis. Here is Butterfree Amigurumi emerging from his Pokeball cocoon. Bye Bye Butterfree!

You can see how I do it in my video tutorial here or see my photos below for reference.
