Umbreon

December 16, 2014

I feel almost cruel if there isn’t an Umbreon to go along with Espeon, so I had to make one straight away. I was really glad I was able to find some red safety eyes online! This Umbreon crochet pattern is nice and simple so it’s a perfect project for beginners. You can easily adjust the colours as well to make a shiny version!

If you love the pattern and want to support the blog, you can purchase an ad-free printable version of this pattern over on my Etsy or Ravelry!

  • 3.00mm crochet hook
  • black yarn
  • yellow yarn
  • yellow felt
  • polyester felt
  • 2x 10mm red safety eyes

I got my safety eyes from situer on Etsy, but I believe you can also paint regular safety eyes with nail polish or paint.

Putting it all together

image

Next stuff the head, body, legs, and tail. You can also stuff the ears and arms if you want, but they are small enough that they don’t need it. I like to pin all of the items in place to get an idea of placement before attaching them.

image

I usually attach them in this order: legs, tail, arms, ears and head. Before I attach the head though, I glue on the felt circles.

image

You want to take some yellow felt and cut out 5 hollow circles. You could also choose to embroider the circles on, which is a little less time consuming, or create a chain with your yellow yarn and sew those on for a more seamless look. You’ll need the two smallest circles for the arms, two slightly larger ones for the legs, and the largest circle is for the middle of the forehead.

Glue the circles on your doll.

Done! Umbreon is quite simple and easy to put together (apart from painstakingly cutting out circles haha). I hope you’ve had a great time making your Umbreon crochet doll, and if you share on Instagram or Tumblr, don’t forget to tag @53stitches so I can check it out.
