Azumarill Amigurumi Pattern

YARN & HOOK

  • 2mm hook
  • Stylecraft Special DK in Turquoise, White, and Black
  • Black embroidery floss
  • 6mm black safety eyes
  • Pink and White felt
  • Black pipe cleaner for the tail (approximately 30cm)
  • Polyester toy filling
  • Pins to place pieces before sewing together
  • Darning needle
  • Stitch markers (I prefer using scrap yarn as “stitch markers”)

SIZE

Azumarill is approximately 13cm tall, and 6.5 cm in width (excluding arms), and approximately 16-17 cm from front to the tip of the tail – but this will vary depending on your zig zag tail.

Weight: 50grams (this includes all materials used in making Azumarill)

STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS – UK ENGLISH

dc double crochet
sl st slip stitch
st/sts stitch/es
inc dc 2 in one st
dec decrease; insert hook in the front loop of the next two sts, yarn over, pull through both loops, y.o. and pull through remaining two loops –> one dc placed into two sts
htr half treble

ASSEMBLY

Assemble in the order of the below pieces. I would recommend using a photo of Azumarill as reference for best possible outcome.

Use black embroidery floss to sew on nose and smile.

Cut out two pieces of pink felt for the ears. Cut out 10 round and oval pieces of white felt in various sizes as seen on Azumarill photos. I would recommend glueing the felt pieces onto the ears and body once all the limbs have been sewn onto the body.

*In the next round (R14) every second and third st will be worked into loop in the back of the white htr of R12 as well as the turquoise st of R13. This is to flatten the white wavy pattern onto the main body.

ZIG ZAG TAIL

Yarn: Black

Insert the pipe cleaner around a dc of row 6 in the back of Azumarill. Pull through and fold in half. Pipe cleaners seem to come in different variations of ‘fluffiness’, so I would reccoment trimming it down a little if it’s very fluffy.

Attach the black yarn with a slip stitch in the same stitch you inserted the pipe cleaner. dc around the pipe cleaner until 1 cm of the pipe cleaner remains, fasten off. Insert the remaining pipe cleaner into the tail ball and sew the two together. Once all ends are sewn in fold the tail to create a zig zag look, and voilá! Azumarill is done!
