Meowth Amigurumi Pattern

YARN & HOOK

  • 2mm & 1.25mm hooks
  • Stylecraft Special DK in Stone and Gold
  • Gold embroidery floss – I used Anchor colour no. 1037
  • Stone coloured embroidery floss – I used DMC colour no. 842
  • Polyester toy filling
  • Wire (approx. 25cm long)
  • Pins to place pieces before sewing together
  • Darning needle
  • Stitch markers (I prefer using scrap yarn as “stitch markers”)
  • Fibres in Black, White and a colour similar to Stylecraft Gold for needle felting*
  • Needle felting tool*

* Please note that I have used needle felting to create the eyes and for the colour finish of the ears. Needle felting is still quite new to me so I will not be including instructions on how to do this. You may want to look into alternative ways of creating the eyes, mouth, teeth and colouring the ears.

SIZE

Meowth is approximately 12cm tall, and 7cm in width, and approximately 9cm from front to back including the tail.

Weight: 45grams (this includes all materials used to make Meowth)

STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS – UK ENGLISH

rs right side

ASSEMBLY & NEEDLE FELTING

Assemble in the same order the pattern is written. I would recommend using a photo of Meowth as reference for best possible outcome. Pin all the pieces in place before sewing to make sure it looks right.

Once all the pieces were pinned in place I made the eyes using black and white fibre and my Clover Needle Felt Pen tool. I also used the same method to create the black and gold pattern on the ears, and the mouth and teeth. As mentioned above needle felting is still quite new to me so I will not be including instructions on how to do this. I would definitely recommend giving it a go!

I preferred the look from using embroidery floss but you can also use the same yarn. Note that they will look a bit thicker – see photos below for differences.
