Umbreon Pattern




This Pokemon pattern is for the dark type Eevee evolution, Umbreon. The solid red eyes I used are from 6060, Hand Painted Pearl-tallic Safety Eyes in the color Pearl Lava Red. Using specified materials will result in a doll with a height of 6 inches with the ears. Using a different size yarn and hook will result in a different sized doll.

    - Black
    - Bright Yellow

Crochet hook: size G/6 – 4.25 mm

Abbreviations:

[ ] x# – repeat the instructions inside the [ ] # times
