Here's the Oddish that so many people have asked for. My girls love it so much, it took me two days to find her when I was finished, so that I could get pictures. The girls had her in the middle of their huge collection of stuffed things I've made for them, LOL.
I should also apologize for the picture, I can't seem to locate the good camera either, I know we put it somewhere, but as of now we can't find it. I'll try to get a better picture when we do though!
On to the pattern:
WW yarn in blue and green
Small scraps of light-red or red felt
Rnd 1: 8 sc in Magic Ring (8)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (32)
Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (40)
Rnd 6: sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (48)
Rnd 7-13: Sc in each sc around (48)
Rnd 14: sc next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (40)
Rnd 15: sc next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (32)
Rnd 16: sc next 2 sc, dec over next 2 sc around (24)
Begin stuffing at his point if you haven't already. Stuff firmly and shape it as you go.
Rnd 17: sc next sc, dec over next 2 sc around (16)
Rnd 18: dec over next 2 sc around (8)
Rnd 1: 6 sc in Magic Ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)
Rnd 3-9: sc in each sc around (12)
F/O, leaving tail. Stuff *very* lightly. Sew opening shut with yarn needle (flatten the end, and sew thru all layers).
Do not chain 1 when turning. Be sure to work first stitches in the very last sc made in previous row. This is help to create a much smoother and more filled in edge to the leaves.
Row 1: ch 2, sc in 2nd ch from hook (1)
Row 2: 2 sc in sc (2)
Row 3: 2 sc in each sc (4)
Row 4: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in last sc (6)
Row 5: sc in each sc across (6)
Row 6: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in last sc (8)
Row 7-9: sc in each sc across (8)
Row 10: dec over first 2 sc, sc in each remaining sc across (7)
Row 11: dec over first 2 sc, sc in each remaining sc across (6)
Row 12: dec over first 2 sc, sc in each remaining sc across (5)
Row 13: dec over first 2 sc, sc in each remaining sc across (4)
Row 14: dec over first 2 sc, sc in each remaining sc across (3)
Row 15: dec over first 2 sc, sc in each remaining sc across (2)
Row 16: dec over remaining 2 sc (1)
F/O leaving long tail. Weave tail down thru center of leaf to other end using yarn needle. If you want a pronounced vein down the center of the leaf, you can backstitch down the center of the leaf instead of weaving it.
Sew feet to bottom of body as shown. Sew leaves to top center of body in the order shown. 1 in front, 2 laying to either side immediately behind first leaf, 2 more standing and slightly leaning outwards behind the second two leaves. (see picture for better reference)
Cut two small circles and a mouth from red felt. See picture to help you with approximate sizes and shape for eyes and mouth. Glue or sew in place.

Thanks! (and you're never too old for pokemon! I'm 45 and still play my games daily, and watch the show pretty much every day :D)
woww so cute!! :D
So cute! Your Pokemon amis are the best on the web. Any plans to do a Vulpix? I would love to have the pattern for that one.
Thank you Dapyzux, and pariswhitney :D and all the pokemon are 'on the list' LOL, just a matter of what yarns I have and if I can dream up a way to make them work. It all comes to me in time :)
oh wow that is so cute! I never thought of a vulpix. I agree you should do vulpix. tha tused to be one of my favorites!! and Eevee too!
Thanks Melissa :) And I love Evee too... I'll eventually get around to them, I do these pokemon in between custom orders and other work pieces that help pay m'bills :) I use what yarns I have to make the pokemon, and that often determines which one I do next, by what colors I have on hand :D
What an amazing, generous blog you have!
Thank you lulu! :D
Hi, I totally love your patterns! They're so easy to follow unlike others.
I've got a question: About how tall is the body by itself? (Without the feet and leaves)
Sorry it took me so long to answer. The body size is about six inches (without the leaves and feet) It will vary a bit depending on your yarn, hook and tension tho. :D
Thanks for sharing your awesome patterns! Great job on them =)
Thank you Savannah! I really appreciate that :D
You are a poke-genius! I love your patterns. Thank you so much for sharing them. They are great!
Thank you very much! I don't know so much about the genius part, but I'm glad you like the patterns :D
Thank you so much for your generosity with your patterns. It's truly amazing not only that you come up with these but that you share them with the world. I appreciaate them so much! I am making several of your patterns for my hubby and son for Christmas, and I really love that I can make some things that are based off of what they love!
i just stumbled across your blog looking for more stuffed toy patterns. As a gaming nerd myself i can honestly say that i love you and your patterns <3
All of your pokemon are so great :) I'm just starting to learn how to crochet now and part of the reason is so that one day I can hopefully make some of these awesome pokemon dolls haha. Thank you so much for sharing the patterns for free; that's so nice of you :)
I LOVE your pokemon and mario patterns! They're so easy to make and accurate! Do you plan on making a charmeleon pattern anytime soon? Ever since I've made Squirtle, Mew, and Torchic, my friends are begging me for other pokemon :) Thanks again, you're an awesome crafter!
Can I make these pokemon characters as prizes in c church raffle?
I just finished Oddish... Waiting for sewing :))
Thanks for sharing the patterns... They are adorable...
I'd like to see Bulbassaur and Charmander pattern in the future :))))
Aww! Oddish is my favorite pokemon! I wish I could crochet better so I could make it! I'm gonna try to make it anyways!
please! i dont understand the leaves part!! do you start with a slip knot and then make 2 chains? and then how do you put a sc in another sc? :( sorry maybe a video would be easier to help me
On the leaves, you are working back and forth as you would if you were making a blanket or scarf.
You can go to youtube and search for 'single crochet' it would show you basics on working in rows.
ok sorry my problem was:
i know how to do the first row. but the problem starts on the second row. i dont know where to insert the hook to start the second row. maybe a picture or something would help?
my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
also. i have never done anything else except for continuous rounds like the body and feet. is this one called chain or something?
after watching the single crochet video, i kind of guessed where to insert the hook and it looks ok for now :D thanks you so much!
I love this pattern! I'm working on it right now. But I have a question. Are the leaves supposed to stand up on their own? It seems like they're kinda floppy when I make them. Any suggestions?
You can possibly use one size smaller crochet hook, to make the stitches tighter, or just crochet a bit closer than you normally would.
You can also add a small wire down the center (back) of the leaves. You might also make 10 leaves, and sew two together back to back to make a 'thicker' leaf that will stand up better.
In general it will largely depend on the type of yarn and hook size AND how tight or loose you crochet. Super Saver yarn is fairly stiff and dense (which is why I like it for making these dolls) and tends to produce a stiffer leaf.
Since everyone has a different tension when they crochet, and hooks tend to differ, and of course we all use whatever yarns are most readily available, sometimes you have to experiment a little with what you have to get things to work just the way you want :D
merci pour le modèle, je l'ai fait mon beau frère a trop aimé
I made my Oddish a bit smaller and the feet are more like little stubs that stick out of the body lol. I love this pattern
I'm 13 years ol and I love to crochet when I finished my oddish I fell in love with it XD
I know this is an old post but one thing that hasn't been asked already: Are you meant to join with slip stitch at the end of each round of the body and feet?
I assume you must work in a spiral because the pattern does not say join in the body bit, nor does it indicate a round should start with a chain for stitch height.
I've been here on days of low spirits to happily stare at your patterns. They are all lovely and it's great of you to share them so succinctly and cheerfully.
Thanks very much sharing and in advance for your reply.
Best wishes to you and family.
I don't specify whether or not to join rounds (unless there's a certain reason to do so). I leave that choice up to the crafter. Everyone has a preference as to whether or not they like to join rounds, or work in continuous rounds... and in most of these dolls it really doesn't matter which you do...so it's easiest for the crafter to make the decision based on what they're most comfortable doing :D
Thanks for such a quick reply. ^_^
I'm glad to know that the method of working rounds makes no difference to the final piece - I don't like the seams made by joining, which is why I guess most Amigurumi is made in the continuous method.
I'm using the wrongest colour for little Oddish, but I really want to gift it to a friend. Hope she can recognise it in light blue :)
Right now, sleepy from all day crocheting and frogging but looking forward to trying another of your patterns, when done with this one.
Thanks again. Cheers. =^_^=
I've the rest done but I'm finding the leaves absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to start. I've been trying for days.
I don't understand the leaves at all either. Once you chain two and do sc in the second chain how do you transition to 2 sc in sc since your hook is still in the sc?
Your work is really excellent!!! My neice asked me to crochet a Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch). Do you have a pattern for that? It would be fantastic!
This is too close to be a "look alike" of your pattern. It's pretty much identical to yours and she is selling them on Etsy. Just wanted to let you know hon, because i absolutely LOVE your patterns and have made several plush toys from them and i would like to continue to do so, but as I've seen in the past, when someone plagerizes a pattern as their own, the rest of us get punished with the pattern being taken down. I dont want that to happen because you are an amazing artist and once again i love your amigurumi patterns :)
