Mimikyu - Free amigurumi pattern

Difficulty Level:   

Have you ever wanted to crochet a Mimikyu Pokémon since Sun and Moon came out? If so, then you are in luck! In this post, there is free instructions for making yourself a Mimikyu amigurumi. He is a cute Pokémon that just wants to be loved by humans the way Pikachu is. Unfortunately, the poor fella’s true appearance can cause severe illness or even be fatal. He even becomes aggressive if you try to look under the cloak.

This pattern is perfect for beginners who want to learn how to crochet this adorable character! Be warned there is a decent amount of sewing for this, which I know can be a turn away from some people. But the attachment of the pieces does not have to be perfect, it will just add to the home made costume appearance. Trust me the end result will be worth it!

You can make this adorable little guy for yourself or as an awesome gift for someone else. If you do use this pattern, please @CrochetCacheCA on social media. I would love to see the results!

Head & Body


The head and body is easy and for the most part worked in the round, but the neck does contain a turning of the work to add the extra rows need to have the head tilted. If you find this hard you could skip this part and just have mimikyu's head straight. I do have it written as invisible decrease for the head. If you find they make your stitch to tight, then do a regular decrease.

Tail


The tail can be tricky with the chain and rounds mix to give it the light bolt zig zag look. Tip: if you sc in the back loops of the chain it will help keep the oval closed.

Assembly


The best part about assembling this Pokémon, is that nothing has to be perfect. He is a costume covering the actual Pokémon that is assembled by the Mimikyu underneath. If your ears are on different sides or your head tilts the other direction, it does not matter it just makes your Mimikyu unique to you. Because of this it makes the amigurumi perfect for starters as it will look amazing no matter what.

 

  • If using safety eye's attach them roughtly 14 rows up from the bottom of Mimikyu and approximately 7 stitched a part from each other. Honestly once I got here I started to see the Mimikyu in the project and could see the results. Eye oval safety eye really help shape the results. I purchased mine from a seller on Etsy, these eyes seem hard to come by.

  • Stuff the head firmly and stuff the body decent. Align the Bottom's edge with the bottom of the body in and stitch together through both loops (Black and Aran). This leaves an edge to Skirt pieces to, in there matching colours.
Mimikyu's underside

 

  • Attach the aran Skirt pieces to the bottom edge of the body, you may have to adjust these a few times, to get them even. Note: you will stagger the black Skirt pieces, which you want the black to center between the eyes.

  • Attach the black Skirt pieces to the bottom edge of the Bottom, you may have to adjust these a few times, to get them even, again stagger these between the aran Skirt pieces. This should give the appearance the characters actual form is under the costume.

  • Attach the left and right Ears to Mimikyu's head, Placed these slight more towards the back of the head to leave room to attach the eyes. As well for stitching on a mouth and cheeks. One of the best parts of this being Mimikyu, is that he is mostly a costume, so it doesn't have to be perfect!
Mimikyu's ears being attached

 

  • Stitch on the button eyes. Try and keep them slightly even, but again if they are a little off it ok, as this is a handmade costume from a Pokémon. Option: if you don't have buttons you could always stitch on eyes or crochet eyes. I would says rnd 1: 6mc (6), rnd 2: 6inc (12), rnd 3: (sc, inc) x 6 (18) then sl st. If you feel these are to small or to large go up a round or down a round.

  • Stitch on a mouth in a zig zag pattern, I made mine not even to add to the home made costume appearance. Also I use the black yarn used for the bottom and the tip of the ears not crochet thread as I wanted the line to be thicker.
Mimikyu's Mouth

 

  • I stitched on swirl for the cheek patches. Again this is a personal choice, I honeslty am not good at embroidery, but what I did gave the desired look. You could also crochet a small circle like suggested for the eyes but with red yarn. It is completely up to you. I would love to see peoples own spin on this project.

  • I stitched one side to the bottom of the body to add strength the rest is stitched to the aran Skirt you see in the image. Which you do see the stitch from the bottom side of the project. Also feed the yarn through the body and attach higher up on the tail to help keep it up. Secure and pull end piece through the body and cut tail.
Mimikyu's tail

 

  • Using crochet thread, stitch two lines at the top of the tail to make it look like the wooden tail in the show. I did do this to both side of the tail so you see the detail from each angle.

YOUR DONE!

 


Conclusion


Now you should have a complete Mimikyu for your self or that Pokefan in your life! Hope you had fun working on this project, and I cannot wait to see what you come up with on social media!

I originally thought that this project will be not like by many as there is a lot of sewing. But the more I worked on it and wrote up this pattern, I realized that this project is a great starting project because it doesn't have to be perfect it will turn out no matter what as this character is wearing a home made costume that he patches him self. I hope you enjoyed this project; it was super fun to design! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi. Can I ask how many inches in height is this mimikyu Amigurumi?

image of the pattern for comments
Crochet Cache

Mimikyu is roughly 7inches from the bottom to the top of his head. And about 10 inches to the top of the ears. This cannot all vary depending on how tight you crochet, the size hook and yarn you use as well as the placement of the ears
