While procrastinating on making a second Bunny Blanket Buddy and rationalizing avoiding my thesis revisions (can't work without committee feedback!), I realized that Pikachu is just a bunny with different ears.  And electric powers.

My (27 year old) sister is now demanding a Pikachu Blanket Buddy of her own.  Or demanding this one since I took the picture on her bed.

This is absolutely adorable! I would love to see the pattern for this. I have a friend who is having a baby soon and would go crazy for one of these.

The base head and body are from a Lion Brand pattern (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/81030AD.html?noImages=) worked with only one strand of yarn.  I tried an earlier bunny with two strands held together, and it was just a complete pain.  It'll be small, but you can add rows in the middle (which means you'll be adding rows once you start decreasing).  They're also pretty quick to make. 

I didn't sew the head together until the face/cheeks were done.  The face is a bit of black yarn, and two French knots for the eyes.

For the cheeks I used a smaller hook (either a G or an F).  They don't take long to make, so it might be good to make one and see if it looks right.

Round 1: ch 2, work 6 sc in the second ch from the hook
Round 2: sc in the first stitch, two sc in the next stitch until you get 12

For the ears:

Ch 2, 6 sc in the second ch from the hook

I meant to keep track, but ended up just doing 6 sc around until it looked right (yeah, that's how most of my patterns end up).  Based on some pictures, Pikachu's ears get a bit wider, but it didn't look right on the doll. 

Hope that helps!
