1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pika..Pika..Pikachu! on: March 01, 2012 05:10:32 AM
So, Inspired by SoreLoser and her brilliant Bulbasaur, ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=396342.0) I was inspired to create Pikachu.  My son is a massive Pokemon fan and Pikachu is is favourite so it was the natural choice.

I wasn't quite sure how to work it out, but google images found an 8-bit pikachu so a few tweaks, and much counting and colouring in graph paper later I managed to create this little lovely!

He is quite a big fella.  Too big to lay out in my little house, so he was photographed on the floor of a local cafe.  He can just about fit on a double bed, as you can see on this not quite so good photo.


Altogether he's taken about 6 weeks and 927 little squares created from 14 balls of yarn (although I do have rather a lot of white left over).

The square breakdown is:
556 Yellow
257 Black  
75   Peach
24   Red
13   Brown
2     White  squares.

And close up:

My son loves it, and so do I!
