#137 Porygon


Porygon was pretty easy to make.  He is made put of a head, body, 2 legs, tail, breast plate, and 2 eyes.  Porygon is only the beginning.  I plan to make Porygon, Porygon2, and Porygon-Z.  Unfortunately, Porygon is a little nose heavy.  I thought about adding some weights to the tail to counter this but decided not to because I only needed Porygon to stand long enough to take the picture.  Once I took the picture, I was positive that my daughter would take it and play with it so I figured she would not care that it is nose heavy.

  1. I have a question. Approximately how big do you thing he is? Will he fit in the palm of my hand?

    1. He is about 8 inches tall when made with worsted weight yarn and F crochet hook. It can easily be made smaller using thinner yarn and a smaller crochet hook.

    1. This is the only pattern for Porygon I have. I also have patterns for Porygon2 and Porygon-Z. I also have an Etsy store (CrochetFanaticDesign) where can purchase Porygon and many other Pokemon.
