Snorlax Pattern

Hi, my dear amigurumi lovers! :)

It’s time for a new pattern! :D This time I’ve been working on a gift for my brother in law, who loves pokemon and asked me if I could do a Snorlax for him. It was very anoying to design his body shape, but, for now I’m satisfied with it xD Maybe in the future I will try to improve some things on this pattern.

It is a huge Snorlax! He measures 18 inches (46cm).

Well, hope you like it! ^_^


– Dark green yarn;
– Cream Yarn;
– White Yarn;
– Caramel yarn;
– Black and white felt;
– Fiberfill;
– 4mm crochet hook;
– 2,5mm crochet hook;
– Tapestry needle;
– Contact glue;
– Scissors.


– I always do my crochet works using continuous rounds. So, I will warn you in the pattern, when you have to work joining rounds;
– Everytime I will do a crochet work, the first thing I do is take a look in the entirely pattern before start doing it, so, I can have an idea of how the pattern works. Well, I recommend you to do the same;
– For sewing the pieces together you will use the tapestry needle;
– To make the eyes, mouth and teeth you will use the felt.

** When you finish it should look like that:



1. Sew the head to the body. Sew the front normally, but the back of his head should be sewn in a row further up. In other words, the back f his head should be sewn in rows further up, while the front of his head should be sewn in lower rows;

head to body head to body

2. Sew his feet to the body. The feet are sewn pointing a bit out. I think maybe with an angle of 35º out;
3. Sew the foot underside;
4. Sew the foot claws;
5. Sew the ears to the head;
6. Sew his face to the head;
7. Sew the belly to the body. When you sewing the lowest part of his belly, stretch it to the sides and sew them in the place they touch while stretched;
8. Sew the arms to the body. When sewing the top rows to his body, sew more than one stitch from the row of his arm to the same stitch on his body in order to sew the arm in the same width of the ears;

arms2 arms1 arms

9. Sew the claws to his arms;


10. Cut his eyes, mouth and teeth from the felt and glue them to his face with contact glue;

    Thank you for this awesome pattern 😊 I finished my Snorlax and I’m so pleased with him. I wish I could share a pic!

    • Yukishi says:

      Hy, i just read your comment and wondering if you could help me through some pic or video, like exchanging another social media account, because I’ve been stuck in round 6 of the body all this time.. i really need to make this for a dear bestfriend.. i really hope you’ll help me😅

      • Katherine says:

        Hi, what is it that you are stuck on?

        • yukishi says:

          it’s the body round 6.. somehow i always end up with 90 than 92.. i was hoping maybe you can send me a tutorial just up until round 6 if you’re not busy and ok with it.. of course i won’t force you to..

          • Katherine says:

            Hi, all I can suggest is that you make sure you have the right number of stitches on your previous row before you try row 6. I think at this stage, doing a video for you probably isn’t going to help as you’ve gotten this far, so you are doing it right. Also if you are REALLY struggling to get the right number of stitches and get beyond this point, why don’t you add 2 stitches to your round by doing 2 extra increases somewhere in your round, I doubt you’d notice in the finished piece 😊 at least then you can move on. When I was struggling with getting the right number of stitches in my rounds, I used a stitch marker to mark the start of each round, so that way you know for sure you are joining your round in the right place, and not gaining or losing stitches. I hope that helps.

  3. Chelle says:

    This pattern is so confusing! How in the world do you even start round one of snorlax??? It says to chain 30, then sc 28 from second from hook, 3 sc in the next chain, sc 27, 2 sc in the next and slip stitch… so how would you put 28 sc in the same stitch without being scrunched up??? Can someone please help?? Thank you!

    • Katherine says:

      You do your 30 chains, turn, skip the first chain, then SC once into each of the next 28 stitches. Basically you are crocheting in to your foundation chain. In rows, like if you are making a scarf or blanket.

  4. Joshua Yuhnke says:

    For the arms, belly, and face it doesn’t say to chain for the rows, are we not supposed to or does she take it for granted that we should just make a chain between each row??

  5. Yukishi says:

    Can someone help me? I’m stuck on the body round 6.. it’s says the total is 90 but when i count and crochet it the total is 92.. how is this even possible? I tried to just continue but now i’m confused on where to slip stitch since the current slip stitch and the last slip stitch doesn’t match up..

    • Alison says:

      I have completed the body and my round 6 is 90 stitches, maybe you increased by 1 stitch too much in the previous rounds because round 6 should be 90 stitches

      • Katherine says:

        I’ve been putting a stitch marker in the last and first stitch of each round to make sure I slip stitch into the correct stitch and don’t accidentally create additional stitches in a round, I did the exact same thing and ended up with too many stitches as I hadn’t been joining in the right stitch, as you basically end up with 2 tiny stitches (your slip stitch and your ch1) that you shouldn’t be crocheting in to. I hope that helps.

      • Yukishi says:

        no.. i’ve counted the last row.. it was exactly 84.. but somehow when i crochet round 6 it always end up like this even tough i always use stitch marker.. can you please help me? like sending me a video of how it’s done? just up to round 6.. i really need to make this for someone important..

  6. Marta says:

    Tried the body 3 times now and every time when I get to round 2 I get more stitches than I should have 68 instead of 66) 3 times!! Can anyone plz help me with this problam? Thanks!

    • Alison says:

      When joining rounds you need to skip the last stitch in each round and slip stitch into the first single crochet not the starting chain.

    • Rachel A. says:

    Thank you so much!

    • Elizabeth R Goodpaster says:

      I actually am finding there’s not enough stitches to do row 6 the way it’s written. Did you figure it out?

  24. Christina Rule says:

    im confused. do you start with a normal chain or do you start with a magic cirlce?

  29. Lisa says:

    Hi, I tried to start this project, but I am sort of new at crocheting.
    I have no clue of how to start the body. What am I supposed to do for the first round from the instructions:

    “**Start joining rounds
    Round 1: ch 30, Sc 28 from the second chain from hook, 3 sc in next ch, Sc 27, 2
    sc in last ch, sl st (60)”

    -When I start joining rounds, am I making a circle? And how does a 30 ch become 60?

    Can anyone please help me? Thanks a ton! ^_^

    • Sandy says:

      I also got the same problem, no idea to start the body~

    • Mallory says:

      Hopefully I make sense:

      You crochet around the chain. When you look at the chain, there are 3 lines of yarn: one loop (2 lines) and the back line.

      So for the first 28 ch, you sc 28 in each LOOP. Then in the remaining chain (the first one you made of the original 30) you sc 3. Then you continue around to the second chain of your original 30 and sc 27 in the back line (behind the loops you already made scs in) until you reach the last ch (ch 29 of the original 30) where you sc 2 times.

      Then you continue around crocheting in the round.

      Hope that helps!

      I’m working on this project as I type. Have the body, head and wars finished.

      Good luck!

    Hi Mia, thanks for the crochet pattern. I’m in the midst of doing it and currently stuck at belly part. Do I go rounds or I sc one and turn over ??

  32. Karen Gutierrez says:

    Hola, no se si les servirá el dato, pero el patrón esta bien. Es normal que se pierda la forma.
    Acá tienen un ejemplo de como va quedando, la foto perteneces a MOM’S ANGEL HANDS.
    Espero que no desespereis en el intento. Yo iba por el 6to intento, cuando esa publicación me salvo la vida. Saludos a todos.!

    Hi all
    Just wondered when in the pattern the body starts to take shape I’m half way through and it’s still an oval I don’t seem to be going up at all!

  34. Nicole says:

    I have a question on Round 38 for the body section. How do I crochet 78, then crochet 4, then decrease, repeated 13 times and still end up with 143 stitches? Or am I reading the pattern wrong. I’m so far into this now, I would hate to make a mistake. Thanks to anybody who can help!

    • Martin says:

      You make 78 sc, and then make 4 sc and a dec, 4 sc and dec, 4 sc and dec … 4 sc and dec until you’ve done that 13 times. The ( ) indicates that you only have to,repeat the steps that are in the parenthesis; not the ones before it. I hope this cleared it up

  35. Tamknitting says:

    Hello, thank you very much for sharing your fabulous pattern. Here It is my versión. I hope you like It

  36. Kay says:

    Sorry I’m new to crocheting can anyone help

    I’m finding the cream face part difficult, I can’t seem to go from row 1 with 18 stitches to row 2 with 20 stitches can anyone help? or write out exactly what I’m meant to be doing

    Thanks :)

  37. Tammy says:

    Hello. First off of like to say thank you for making this pattern available. I was confused on the beginning but then the rest was a piece of cake. I didn’t follow your hook sizes. I used a G 4.25 for the entire pattern. It came out huge but so awesome. It measures 24″ long 24″ wide and laying flat at the largest point is 11″ high. I dont know how to post a picture. If you’d like pictures I can send them to you. Just shoot me an email :) [email protected] or you can see them on my page Also posted in my crafting group.

    • mary says:

      could u help i am making snorlax but when get here Round 11: hdc 18, inc (120)
      Round 12: hdc 19, inc (126)
      do go all the way arround if that makes sence

  38. Amanda says:

    I’ve been working on this snorlax pattern for a couple days and for some reason all my rounds at the beginning are off by about 2-4 stitches. The first round is right on count but everything else is off and I’m not sure why. I’ve followed the pattern exactly. I’ve started over twice and I get the same problem. The farthest I’ve made it is round 4. Any one else have this problem? Or maybe a solution to help? I don’t think I’m counting them wrong… thank you

    • Tracie says:

      I had the same issue.. I just added the remaining stitches needed to complete the row. It all adds up while you advance through.. I’m on row 26 and it all works out as long as you have the amount of stitches that the row is suppose to have..
      Row 4: you’ll end with (78) stitches.. So just add stitches to make (78). And so on with the other rows.. Hope that’s helps..

      • Amanda says:

        My problem is that I’m ending up with too many stitches some how. I fixed it by decreasing a stitch and modifying the beginning of each round in the first 10 rounds. It’s working out so far!

  39. Audrey says:

    Hi Mia
    Love your pattern I have a couple of questions first when attaching the ears what row are the attached to? The same goes for the white of the face and belly color?

  40. Mai Vue says:

    Hi there.
    I was wondering if you can do a video tutorial on this. I don’t understand by reading the pattern bug I understand by watching the video on how to do it. Please make a video. Thanks an advanced.

  41. Ashley says:

    Hello, I realize this is an old post, but hoping someone can help me. Should the increases and slip stitches always be at the end of the “row” or am I doing something wrong? I’m getting these “lumps” in the middle of my oval (I’m only on round 6 now) and I’m wondering if this is how it should be before I continue working and it end up being wrong. Thanks for any help!!

    • I’m having the same issue. Did you ever figure it out?

      • Ashley says:

        Hi, Nunziata! I got frustrated and ended up doing all the other parts first, but what I was doing wrong on the body was only crocheting, say 18 then increasing and considering that my row! So silly looking back. What you need to do is crochet 18, increase, crochet 18, increase, etc until you get to the end (I’ve been placing stitch markers!) I still have little places that “lump up” but I’m assuming they will correct themselves as I continue on in my work. Hope that helps you! I suggest also looking up YouTube videos of the stitches/amigurumi for help!

  42. I’m somewhat confused in regards to the arms pattern. I’ve never gone from rounds to rows, and I’ve never moved up without chaining one, so how would one do that in your pattern?

  43. Camryn says:

    I really really love this pattern, thank you so so much for sharing it! I do have a question about the amount of yarn I need for each color. I know that the green will be more used than the cream but do you have an exact amount, or at least and about amount? Thank you so much!!

    • Ashley says:

      I don’t know if this helps, but so far I’m starting on my 3rd skein of green/blue (268 yd skeins) and I’ve finished the arms, ears, head, and part of the body. For the cream, I used 2 skeins of 120 yds. And for the caramel foot pads, I used leftover yarn I had in my stash! I crochet pretty tightly, but hopefully this helps.

  44. Miche says:

    Oh my. I have never tried Crocheting,
    I love looking at things like this and get amazed.
    You’re a crochet goddess :O

  45. Lilia De Los Santos says:

    Hi this is adorable! I was wondering if this pattern of snorlax could be made in a way smaller version? :/ My son wants about a 3 inch crocheted snorlax…Got any suggestions..

  46. Coni says:

    Hi Mia!! I really love your Snorlax…
    I have a question… I have to do your Snorlax but in 25 cm (like 10 inches) i tried changing the hook and yarn but it still too big. Could you help me, please?? Or anyone who read this??

  47. Tracie says:

    I’m having an issue.. After I finish row 5 I get 84 stitches. But, when I end row 6 I don’t have enough stitches to complete row 6.. I’m confused. Can someone help?? Thanks :)

  48. Ragnild says:

    Hi Mia,

    No clue if you’re actually looking on here still, but I’m actually crocheting a Snorlax from your pattern right now! I’ll be turning it into a backpack/bag, which will fit in nicely with the current Pokémon craze, I think. :) Thank you for the lovely pattern!

  49. Mavis Rain says:

    Hi Mia!

    I am currently on round 11 on the body and I’m stuck on what increase I should do. I am supposed to do 2 single crochets in one stitch or 2 half-double crochets in one stitch??

    Thank for the amazing pattern!!

  50. Tiago says:

    Gente alguém me ajuda como que faz 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 eu quero fazer o snorlax mais não entendo isso de rodada…sou novo no croche !!! Comecei semana passada pra ser mais específico !!! E tipo vi ele é me deu maior vontade de fazer pra poder ter um !!!!!! Alguém por favor me ajuda !!!! Meu whatsapp tai +5512982253530 por favor gente quero muito fazer ele !!!!

    • Oi Tiago! Eu posso te auxiliar na tradução dos termos: sc = ponto baixo; Ch = correntinha; hdc = ponto médio; dc = ponto alto; inc = aumentar; dec= diminuir; mc ou Mr = é uma técnica para começar uma forma redonda sem correntinha (olha no youtube). No google você acha a tradução de muitos termos ;)

  51. N says:

    whoops, I read some of the comments and posted my question. Then I read in one of the later msgs that it is about an oval shape. Sorry for the needles question.

    Thank you for the pattern!

  52. N says:

    Hello Mia,

    the first round of your pattern confuses me. How do you get to 60 sc is you chain only 30 sc. In my logic you would chain 60, then Sc 28 from the second chain from hook, 3 sc in next ch, Sc 27, 2
    sc in last ch, sl st (60).

    With your instructions I don’t know what to do with the 27 sc and the 3sc and the last increase. It seems to me I’d be doing them in the air.

    I hope I get my message across.

    With regards,

    • Maria says:

      Hello Nik,

      In order to get the 60 sc you will be working around the chain, 30 will be on one side and 30 on the other. to get an oval shape. With regards to the 27 sc and the 3sc, she just meant to state that you do 27 sc and then sc, it was confusing for me too, but it you count your sc, at the end they should be adding to the states sc of the patter instructions.

      Hope my description helps.


  53. Jennifer Wolfgang Harrington says:

    Hi I love the Snorlax you’ve made and I’m on my 3rd attempt of this pattern and I definitely think I’m missing something in reading this pattern. At the end of row 5 (this is my 3rd time going from the start to this point) , after the “(sc 3, inc) twice” and before I slip-stitch, should I have still have 3 sc’s between the final inc of the row and the starting stitch marker of the row? If that makes sense..

    Every time I’ve tried this pattern I get to about row 8 or 9 and I come up short every time with a few empty sc’s between the last stitch of the row and the start of the round and I’m wondering is this supposed to be like this?


    • Maria says:

      Hi Jennifer,

      What I did in order to understand this pattern I broke down her instructions like this (using round 5 as an example):

      Round 5: ch 1, Sc in the same sc of sl st, sc 2, inc, sc 30, (inc, sc 3) 3 times, sc 24,
      (sc 3, inc) twice, sl st (84)

      Round 5:
      chain 1, sc in sc of sl st, 1 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in same sc, 1 sc in next 30 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc, 1 sc in next 24 sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in last sc, sl st

      if you count the total number of sc in round 5 there should be 84.

      Hope I was of help, even though your question was a while ago,

  54. Amber Dodson says:

    I love this but this pattern its driving me crazy! Thankfully after 2 hours I read through the comments and figured out that this was supposed to be made in an oval shape. Has anyone rewritten this pattern? Also getting confused with all the (sc, 2 inc) type of add on’s. Is it a single increase or is it a sc, then an inc? I’m soooo lost. Wanted to surprise a friend for her birthday but I’m ready to give up. HELP!

    • Arulupinaustin says:

      (sc, inc) means one sc followed by an inc. You can usually figure it out by counting the number of stitches in the previous round.

  55. Henar says:

    Hi, I want to know if the width of the wool is the same in all the colors, because I’m a little confused

  56. Anna says:

    about round 38 of the body; I don’t understand what I’m supposed to do, dec yes, but how? do I make 78sc and then dec 13 times or what? could you explain a bit? thanks!

    • Bri says:

      sc 78, (sc 4, dec) repeat 13 times (143)

      This means you first sc 78 and the make 4 more before a decrease, then it would be repeating the 4 scand decrease until the end of the row (making 13 decreases in total ). Hope this helps and that I wasnt too late replying.

  57. um yousif says:

    Thank you you so much for this detailed explaination … are so kind

  58. jlsieweke says:

    this is a lovely pattern but I am having some trouble figuring out how to get started on the body. Could someone please explain that a bit more for me? Thanks.

  59. Christina says:

    This is absolutely adorable!!! Thank you so much for the pattern

  60. Banana Yoshimoto says:

    Can someone break 11 and 13-14 down for me? I’ve looked all over a lot of different websites, and there’s a lot of conflicting information.
    Does 11 mean do 18 half double crochets and then one increase? If so, why does it say it ends in 120 stitches? I’m not sure how you do 18 hdc and an increase and then get (120) as a result.
    And I have yet to find a video that explains what hdc in each hdc means. Does this mean to go back and do a half double crochet in the half double crochets you’ve done already?

    Sorry, this is the only part of the pattern that I can’t make sense of, and I’ve searched around a fair while trying to see if anywhere else explains these things.


    • Banana Yoshimoto says:

      Actually, I think I have the first part of the question figured out since 18 hdc + inc = 20 stitches times 6 = 120 total.

      And I’m assuming hdc in each hdc just means to go around for a total of 126 stitches for 13 and 126 stitches for 14?

      So my last question would be where the sc in each sc comes from on lines 26-37 if it was all hdc’s before that?

      Again, sorry for all of the questions. I’m used to formatting in an old book I’ve been using so doing patterns that people are used to online is a bit of a new thing for me (got most of it, but I’ve had a bit more difficulty in doing this pattern as you can tell).


      • Bri says:

        Sorry if this reply is too late, you are correct in assuming that hdc in each hdc means you will be working the same number in the next row. So both row 13 and 14 will have 126 stitches.

        As for rows 26 and on, she has written the pattern to go back to using the sc. Row 25 will be hdc and 26 will start using sc.

  61. Katy says:

    How many yards did you use for each color did you use in the whole project? I’m not sure how much to get going by how many grams.

  62. Sarah G. says:

    Just a quick question with the pattern (I’m somewhat new at crocheting), starting at round 11, it says hdc 18, inc (120). Does this mean do hdc 18 and inc hdc until 120 stitches are made, or is it something else?
    Thanks a bunch for coming up with this pattern!

  64. Lauren says:

    Hi :)

    i love your pattern, im currently on the arms, i have a question about arm rounds 7-18, it says 4sc, inc. do i do that for all of them, i just cant make out how it will end up as ive done rounds 7-18 like this and its massive D:.

    • mst3kmoxie says:

      I meant to mention that problem with the arms earlier! i

    • mst3kmoxie says:

      I meant to make a comment when I had the same problem – I did the same thing Lauren did, but when I realized it was spiralling out so large, I knew it had to be wrong. I pulled it all out (argh!) and then ended up doing the 4sc, ins ONLY for the 7th row, then did 8 through 18 did the same number of stitches I ended up having in row 7. It looked okay doing it that.

      Hope that was the right thing to do and that it helps!

  65. Errin says:

    Hi Mia,
    I have a question. What does it mean to join rounds? Sorry I’m kind of new to crocheting but I need to make a snorlax for someone’s birthday…. Can you give me some tips? And where can I go to figure out what the symbols mean?

  66. mst3kmoxie says:

    Hey Mia!

    He’s done! My snorlax is finally done!! :D

    Here is a link to my fb post with his pic: If you can’t see it, or want more pix, give me a shout.

    He stands 28 inches tall and 49 inches around the middle. I ended up using a different approach on the claws (basically they’re mini ice cream cones!), but everything else is your pattern.

    Thanks again so much for making and sharing this pattern. You are my hero!! <3

  67. ehighbaugh says:

    Thank you for sharing this pattern, its so cute and the most realistic Snorlax pattern I’ve found.

    If anyone is curious about colors, I’ve found a Red Heart color called ‘real teal’ that works for his real color, if you care… But I think he would look cute any color. You can buy it at WalMart… Its the cheapest yarn you can buy, but it works really well for amigurumi and stuffies because its kind of stiff and holds shape fairly well.

    • You are welcome! Yeah!! I’ve found that yarn too and just bought it some time ago from Ebay! I’m going to use it to crochet a Snorlax for me ^_^

      • Chelle says:

        Mia, why do you reply to unnecessary questions and to the Spanish ones BUT NOT reply to the people that REALLY NEEDS your help? That’s really silly of you!!!

  68. Claudio says:

    que significan las letras ch y las otras

  69. Canadaked says:

    I can’t seem to get the right number of stitches on the body after round 2, should the rounds be ending where they began or part way through the round before?

  70. Mary says:

    Okay, so I’m just reading through the pattern and just curious as to if the al st join in each round is counted as a stich or no. <3 the pattern!!

  71. Jen B. says:

    by stating i was a basic crocheter i was trying to say i cannot enlarge the small patterns..

  72. Jen B. says:

    Pretty much my entire family loves pokemon, even my kids and all the nieces and nephews. Snorlax is a favorite of a few of us mainly my older brother. I have been searching for snorlax designs in pretty much everything for awhile. I tried backpacks, pillows, stuffed animals, hats, crochet, polymer, several others. The crochet ones are usually small and im just a basic crocheter. The fact that this guy is huge im excited to try. It will take time between work and taking care of the kids and a sick husband but the look i know i will get from my older brother will be worth it all.. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUTTING UP THIS PATTERN.

  73. meilyn reyes says:

    hola, disculpe usted puede hacer la parte de la cabeza de una forma que se entienda mas sencillamente por favor :) es que esta muy lindo y quiero hacerlo

  74. Hi Mia,

    First things first — I LOVE this pattern! I was looking for something special to make for my son for his 13th birthday (you know, something cute that a “teen” would still find cool) — and this is by far the best Snorlax pattern I’ve ever seen. It just captures his spirit so perfectly!

    So I’m still in the midst of making it (oops…his birthday was May 17 and I discovered your pattern only a week before that.) — partly because the yarn I used is very bulky and so I ended up using a 6.5mm hook for the body. I’m nearly done with the body, but as you can imagine it is HUGE. Appropriately Snorlax size, but still HUGE. I promise to post you photos when I’m done.

    My one problem, however, is that I’m confused about how you make the claws on the hands. I see from the photos that they are roughly cone-shaped, correct? Any advice that might help? I get the first 3 stitches in the magic circle just fine, but I can’t figure out how to get to the second row….

    Thanks so much!

    Moxie xx

    • Hi hi Moxie,

      Thank you so much!! I’m sure it will be a great gift!! And, OMG, what a HUGE Snorlax you are crocheting!!! I’m really curious about that! Can’t wait to see your Snorlax, when you finish it.

      About the claws, yeah, they are roughly cone-shaped. What I’ve done was make a magic circle with 3 single crochets, then, in continuous rounds, I crochet one single crochet in the next stitch, after that I’ve made an increase in the next one and, finally, I’ve made a single crochet in the next. So, you have round 2 with 4 stitches in total. It is a bit annoying to crochet this, because it is very small :S

      You are welcome!

  75. Nou Ne says:

    Hey Mia :) Thank you for this pattern! I love it and am going to make it for my friends birthday :)
    I’m also really glad to see that you answer all comments really quick, because I’m still a beginner in crocheting and also have to translate your instructions into german, so I will need a lot of help :) His birthday is in two weeks, I really hope I can make it.. :)

    My first questions are:
    – which kind of yarn you used (thickness and material)
    – how much of each colour I should buy
    – for which part you used which crochet hook (because you wrote you need 4mm and 2,5mm but never said when you used which one of them)
    – and if there is a special kind of contact glue for crochet works or does any kind of glue work? I don’t suppose so..

    As soon as you can answer me those questions, I can go buy all the stuff I need!
    Thank you for your help and for thiy wonderfull pattern! I really really love it! <3

    • Hi, Nou ne! ^_^

      I used 100% acrylic worsted yarn. The amount of yarn I don’t know for sure, I usually don’t measure it xD However, I think I used about 200g (5 balls with 40g) of green yarn, 120g (3 balls with 40g) of cream yarn and just a bit of white yarn. About the hook, you just have to use the 2.5mm hook when the pattern say so (claws). The contact glue I use is for general use, it glues anything xD
      I’m glad to know you like the pattern! ^_^ Have fun! :3

      • Nou Ne says:

        Thank you! :)
        Today I went to the store and bought everything I need.
        I even started
        with Round 1 already and successfully counted 60 stitches afterwards! :D *excited*
        But before I continue, I just have a liiiiiiittle question about Round 2: after I chain 1, does “increase in the same single crochet of slip stitch” mean that I have to add two single crochets at the same point where I made the slip stitch from the end of Round 1? I’m pretty sure that this is right, so this is just in case I’m not :D
        I’m really excited about this, so I hope I don’t bother you with my stupid little questions *___*

        Good night! Nour ^^

  76. Tina says:

    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing. However, I’m afraid that the size of this will make me go nuts. I need to see progress fast or I lose interest in the project.. Not sure whether I could do this one. How many hours do you think it would take an “average” crocheter to make this?

    • Hi Tina! Thank you!! And yoy are welcome! ^_^ I’m not good into timing things :S I usually have no idea of how much time I will spend with anythjng, lol. Well, but I think maybe you will take around 35 hours? I don’t know for sure :S The most time consuming part is his body.

  77. Lauren says:

    Hi, I love your pattern, it’s by far the best snorlax I’ve found. I want to make this for my friends birthday but I’m pretty new to crocheting (been knitting all my life)
    I’m really struggling to get started with this as I don’t really understand the instructions. I’ve been looking all over the internet and in my crochet books and I just can’t figure it out. The first part after I’ve ch 30, am I supposed to join it back round to the first stich after the slipknot? And if so, I really really don’t understand the next part of the instructions and how it gets up to 60 stitches. So far I’ve spent 4 hours trying to figure this out and I can’t. I don’t suppose you could make it clear for a beginner to understand please?

    • Joyce Brito says:

      You have to sc around the 30 ch, as in sc on both sides of the chain. After you have chained 30 and start sc down the chain, the multiple sc in a ch are to help you go around; they help to form the corner. I hope that helps. I had trouble with that part as well and slapped myself when I finally figured it out.

    • Hi Lauren! Thanks for the compliment! Also thanks for your suggestion, I will try to make it clear to begginers. Well, his body starts with an oval shape. Please, watch this video to have some idea of how it works: Now, that you’ve watched the video, I will try to explain the pattern xD First, you will chain 30 and then from the second chain from your hook you will crochet 28 sc. Now, you will crochet 3 sc in the same and last chain. After that, you will work in the other side of the chain, the bottom, as is shown in the video. Crochet one sc in each one of the next 27 ch. In the last chain crochet 2 sc. Now, slip stich in next sc. When you finish this round you will count a total number of 60 stitches.

      • After I do the slip stitch from the first round and go to the second round, my yarn bends up and it doesn’t look right. Why do we have to slip stitch instead of just increasing like on the other end?

      Im having the same issues

    do you sell these, i would love to buy one

  79. Julie says:

    Omg thank you so much for putting this pattern up!!!!

  80. Donesia says:

    Hi Mia. I love the pattern. Thank you for the detailed instructions and hard work you put into making him. I don’t know much about Pokemon but I wanted to know if snorlax come in different colors.

    • Hi Donesia, I’m glad you love it!! You are welcome ^_^
      He has two colors, the normal one, which is described on bulbapedia as dark blue-green, and the Shiny color, which is blue. I found really complicated to match his normal color, because in the animated series is clearly a dark green, but in the game it seems as a mixture of blue and green, I don’t know which color is that -.-” However, in my opinion I see it as a dark green xD
