Ampharos


I hope you'll forgive the fact that pictures aren't really all that great,  but the weather has been really crummy outside,  so we took the pics inside.

Ampharos is another of the lesser known pokemon I'm really quite fond of.  The pattern is a bit complicated in that there are quite a few parts to him, and lots of color changes.  Other than that though,  he's not very difficult to make.

I used a yellow color called cornmeal,  it was the closest color I could find to the color of Ampharos in the show and on its cards,  but you can use any color that's close.

As always,  if you find a problem in the pattern,  or if you just need help leave a message and I'll get back at ya as soon as I can.  :)


Ampharos

MATERIAL:

WW yarn in Yellow, black, white and red
G Hook
Fiberfill
Small amount of black and white felt  (for the eyes)

NOTES:

Although I generally join all my rounds,  working this doll in the continuous round method will be just as effective.

The numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row,  indicate the total number of stitches that should be in that round or row.
