Sylveon Crochet Pattern - Pokemon

I’ve been in love with crocheting Pokemon for a long time now, and I think this Sylveon crochet pattern might be the biggest and best one I’ve done yet! I was so happy with her that I made both a shiny and normal version. Don’t you think she’s cute? I’m excited to share this pattern with you so you can all make your own Sylveon too!

Sylveon Crochet Pattern Assembly and Needle Felting

To start off, attach the ears to the head, roughly between rnds 3 and 5. Then sew on the body directly beneath the head to make something like this!

Next, sew the top of the arms to the top front area of the body. I like to position the left leg slightly in front of the right one to make Sylveon’s pose a little nicer, so I will usually put in a few stitches to keep it in place. If you’re unsure on placement, take a look at the pictures below to help you. Now you can sew the legs to either side of the body as shown below!

Use your loose ends to sew the white ends of two of your long ribbons together, so you should have one long strip. Continuing on with the same loose end, sew the middle of your ribbon strip to the middle of Sylveon’s chest, right below where you attached the head. Then, following a similar method, sew the pink edges of two of your bow halves together to make one full bow, and then sew this bow on top of your ribbon, in the centre of the chest.

With the ribbons attached in the middle, you can now move to secure the middle of the ribbons on either side of the body, just above the legs. Make sure to leave space at the front so that they make a small loop coming out from the below. Also make sure that your ribbons are the same length before sewing, so that everything is symmetrical. After finishing this step, I generally tuck the ribbon ends into the loop you should have now at the front (like in the pictures below!), just so they’re out of the way while completing the rest of the assembly and felting. Attach the tail to the back of the body. It helps to stand Sylveon up every so often so you can make sure that she’s balanced and sits well!

Now using the same methods from before, sew your final long ribbon and short ribbon together, and the two halves of your bow also. Sew the middle of the ribbon to the bottom of the right ear, so that the long part is on the left and the shorter side is on the right. Then attach the bow over the top. The final touch to add on is the chains you made to create the head fluff! Fold the chain in half, making one half slightly longer than the other, and sew at the bottom to secure. Then attach to the head, next to the left ear, so that the two halves are sticking outwards.

Now that the assembly is nearly finished, it’s time to move on to the needle felting! First of all, I use my darker blue wool roving to felt a pointed oval shape onto both ears. Since the bow and the ribbon are in the way on your right ear, just felt down as far as you can for that one. Now it’s time for the biggest piece of felting – creating the pink pattern on the head! I usually start at the top of the head and work my way out. The top of the two arches on Sylveon’s face should be between rnds 5 and 6, and the middle part should go down to the bottom of rnd 8. Here are what the front and back of the head should look like! Once finishing this part, you can go ahead and sew the left side of the ribbon on the head to the middle of the ear, now that it won’t get in the way.

Now it’s time for the eyes! Starting with your medium blue colour, felt the base shape of the eyes. They should be about 5 sts apart. After this, using your teal, create a flat oval to felt at the bottom of the eye. Finally, add a white oval to the edges of the eyes as shown in the photos below!

eye two sylveon crochet pattern

Time for the finishing touches! Add a small black nose in the middle of rnd 10, and a little mouth at the bottom of rnd 11. You can also add some heart-shaped cheeks just underneath the eyes, like I’ve done here!
