Eevee crochet pattern

One of my favourite things about Eevee, besides how cute it is, is how versatile they are! This crochet Eevee pattern is the start of my amigurumi Eeveelutions collection. They’re some of my absolute favourite patterns that I’ve put together, and they look so amazing and colourful together. So without further ado, let’s get into this great beginner-friendly Eevee crochet pattern!

If you don’t crochet yourself but still want one of these Eevee plush dolls for yourself, they’re available over on my Etsy store. You can also purchase an ad-free printable PDF of Eevee on my Etsy or Ravelry!

  • 3.00 mm crochet hook
  • caramel/brown coloured yarn
  • cream coloured yarn, or preferably felting wool
  • brown felt
  • 2 x 10.00mm safety eyes
  • metal brush / pet brush
  • yarn needle
  • felting needle
  • polyester filling
  • glue

I had a lot of trouble trying to find the correct colour yarn for this one. Eevee’s fluffy neck isn’t quite white, and their body isn’t quite brown, but I was pretty happy with what I found in the end. It was a nameless brand yarn from one of those random assortment shops so I couldn’t tell you the brand, sorry!

Next, we’re going to cut out the darker insides of Eevee’s ear from brown felt. We’re basically creating a smaller version of the crocheted ear shape. Then simply glue it in place. I prefer using Helmar’s Fabric glue, which I pick up at my local spotlight store. It dries quickly and I have never had anything fall off, even with naughty cats trying to tear my toys apart.

And the crocheting part is done!

Putting it all together

Next, stuff the head and body firmly. The tail should already be stuffed, and it’s up to you whether or not you stuff the legs lightly as well. The arms are usually so small that they don’t need it, and the ears don’t need it either as we’re pressing them flat.

I like to pin all of the stuffed body pieces together so that I can get an approximate idea of where to sew them.

I usually attach them in this order: legs to body, arms to body, tail to body, ears to head, and finally, head to body.

Fluff that collar

Now the fun part, making Eevee super fluffy. For this part, you’re going to need a metal brush – usually found in the pet section or a very thin comb. First, cut out about 24 lengths of the cream yarn. The yarn doesn’t need to be very long – just over twice as long as you want the fluff to be is fine. I make mine a little longer at the start because it’s easier to attach and I can always trim it later.

image

We’re basically going to attach one of the pieces to every stitch around Eevee’s neck.

1. Insert your hook into the doll as pictured below.
2. Fold one of the pieces in yarn in half, and put it on the hook.
3. Pull the piece of yarn through the stitch.
4. Grab the tails and pull them through the loop you’ve just created.
5. Pull the yarn tight, making sure that the piece of yarn is firmly attached.

image

Do this for each of the 24 stitches around Eevee’s neck. If you want SUPER fluff, feel free to add even more pieces. Try making some diagonal, so that it covers a little more of the neck.

Once you’ve got those lovely locks firmly attached to Eevee’s neck, it’s time to go crazy with the metal brush. This pulls the yarn apart and gives it a nice fuzzy texture. It also becomes a little bit easier to mould, so you can shape it to look exactly like you want.

image

I usually brush it until it’s nice and fuzzy, and then I’ll trim it up a little with a pair of scissors. If it’s being particularly unruly, you can go in with a felting needle and shape and tame it a little bit that way.

image

And we’re done with our crochet Eevee! Super simple, super adorable. I want everything I make to be fluffy! I hope you’ve had a great time making them, and if you share on Instagram or Tumblr, don’t forget to tag @53stitches so I can check it out.
