Rattata Plushie by Milayou Rattata Plushie by Milayou
Here's a plushie I made of Rattata. He wasn't too hard, but I did take me about 4 days to make. I could have done it quicker, but I just made a few pieces a day. Also, I was writing down the pattern as I made it, so it took longer because of that too.

Nothing too complicated here, just standard amigurumi style for the most part, a lot of color changing for the stomach and face though. The feet were pretty simple, but were made with two pieces each, sewn together. The eyes, fangs and whiskers are felt. And that's pretty much it I guess.

I don't know why, but I've always liked Rattata. Way back on my Red version, I would always keep one in my team for like, half the game. (Of course I would evolve it though, 'cause he would be bad as he is). I think it's just because he's so cute.

And now that I've realized I can edit the description, I'll share the pattern too, so this is going to get long.

Rattata Plushie

Abbreviations:
sc=single crochet
inc=increase (2 sc in next sc)
dec=decrease
hdc=half double crochet (there's very few of these)
st=stitch
ch=chain
hk=hook
rnd=round
[w]=change to white
[p]=change to purple

I never really use gauge, so it's not that important, just use a hook that's good with the size of yarn you're using.

Materials:
Purple yarn
White/Off White yarn
Pink yarn (small amount for ears)
Red and white felt scraps
Yarn needle (for sewing pieces together)
Polyester stuffing

*note: when changing color, yarn over with new color in last step of the last stitch indicated before color change.

Okay, so this pattern is divided into seven sections, that being the head, body, feet, front legs, tail, and right and left ears (which are only made slightly different given their shape). Pieces are best sewn together as work progresses. Anyway, on to the pattern.


(number in ( ) at end of rnd indicates how many stitches you have in each round)

Head:
with purple, ch2
1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hk (6)
2: (inc) in each sc around (12)
3: (inc, sc in next sc) around (18)
4: (inc, sc in next 2 sc) around (24)
5: sc in next 9 sc, dec, sc in next 2 sc, dec, sc in next 9 sc (22)
6: sc in next 9 sc, inc, 3 sc in next sc, inc, sc in next 10 sc (26)
7: sc in next 8 sc, dec, (sc in next 7 sc, dec) twice (24)
8: sc in next 6 sc, [w], in BACK LOOPS only, sc in next 4 sc, dec, sc in next sc, dec, sc in next 3 sc, [p], working in BOTH LOOPS again, sc in next 6 sc (22) *this is the only row where you need to work in back loops. Work in both loops for the rest.
9: sc in next 5 sc, [w], sc in next 12 sc, [p], sc in next 5 sc (22)
10: sc in next 5 sc, [w], sc in next 3 sc, (dec) three times, sc in next 3 sc, [p], sc in next 3 sc, dec (18)
11: dec, sc in next sc, dec, [w], (sc in next sc, dec) three times, [p], sc in next sc, dec, sc in next sc (12)
*basically this row is just (sc in next sc, dec) around, but with color changes noted in the right place*
Finish off, leaving long end for sewing.

Body
*note: the body might look a little mis-shapen as you work it at first, but I promise you it looks great once you get the stuffing in.

with purple, ch 2
1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hk (6)
2: (inc) in each sc around (12)
3: (inc, sc in next sc) around (18)
4: (inc, sc in next 2 sc) around (24)
5: sc in next 21 sc, [w], sc in next 3 sc, [p] (24)
6: (sc in next sc, inc) three times, sc in next 9 sc, (inc, sc in next sc) twice, inc, [w], sc in next 4 sc (30)
7: sc in next sc, [p], (sc in next 2 sc, inc) three times, (sc in next sc, dec) twice, sc in next sc, (inc, sc in next 2 sc) twice, inc, sc in next sc, [w], sc in next 5 sc (34)
8: sc in next 2 sc, [p], sc in next 27 sc, [w], sc in next 7 sc, [p] (this will go a few stitches into the next round, start rounds at this point from here to end) (34)
9: (sc in next 2 sc, dec) three times, sc in next 3 sc, (dec, sc in next 2 sc) three times, [w], sc in next 7 sc, [p] (28)
10: sc in next 21 sc, [w], sc in next 7 sc, [p] (28)
11: (sc in next sc, dec) three times, sc in next 3 sc, (dec, sc in next sc) three times, [w], sc in next 7 sc, [p] (22)
12: sc in next 15 sc, [w], sc in next 7 sc, [p] (22)
13,14: repeat round 12
15: sc in next 16 sc, [w], sc in next 6 sc, [p] (22)
16: (dec, sc in next 3 sc) three times, dec, [w], sc in next 2 sc, inc, sc in next sc, dec, [p] (19)
17: sc in next 3 sc, (dec) three times, sc in next 2 sc, inc, [w], sc in next 6 sc. Work in rows, do NOT change to purple.
row 1: ch 1, turn, sc in next 6 sc
repeat row one, once.
Finish off.
(This part might sound a little hard, but just read it carefully, I did my best to explain it) Sew sides of last two rows to first two purple stitches (that are on each side of white stitches on rnd 17). This should leave 6 purple stitches open, along with the 6 white stitches on row 2. Stuff head and body, sew together, matching up the white and purple stitches.

Feet (make 2 for each foot, for a total of 8 pieces)
with white, ch 2
1: 8 sc in 2nd ch from hk
2: sc in next sc, ((sc, hdc, sc) in next sc, slip st in next sc) three times, sc in next sc.
Finish off, sew two pieces together to make one foot, stuff lightly. If you push between the toes while pushing on outer sides of toes, it will help shape the foot a little.

Front legs
1: with purple, ch 7, join with slip st to form a ring. (7)
2-6: sc in each st around
7: sc in next 2 sc, inc, sc in next 2 sc, dec (7)
8: sc in next 3 sc, inc, sc in next 2 sc, dec (7)
Finish off, sew this end to body and starting end to foot, stuffing first. Works better if sewn to body first, then you can get the right angle to sew the foot on.

Tail
with purple, ch 2
1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hk (6)
2-4: sc in each sc around (6)
5: (inc, sc in next sc) around (9)
6-15: sc in each sc around, begin stuffing (9)
16: (dec, sc in next sc) around (6)
17-26: sc in each sc around (6)
Finish off, leaving long enough end to sew to body. Finish stuffing, curl tip of tail down to round 15 (you should be able to see where tail gets smaller again), sew in place, weave yarn up a few stitches to middle of curl, sew down to tail to complete curl. Weave in ends.


Right Ear
(inside)
with pink, ch 4
1: sc in each ch across, ch 1, turn (3)
2: inc, sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn (4)
3: sc in each sc across (4)
Finish off.

(outside)
with purple, work same as inside, finish off.
1: with new strand of purple, sc join in bottom right corner (beginning of row 1), working through both colors, pink in front. (this counts as first sc). sc up side of row 2 (1 stitch), 3 sc in first sc on row 3, sc in next 2 sc, 3 sc in last sc, sc down side (3 stitches).
Finish off, leaving long end for sewing.

Left Ear
(inside)
with pink, ch 4
1: sc in each ch across, ch 1 turn (3)
2: sc in first 2 sc, inc, ch 1, turn (4)
3: sc in each sc across (4)
Finish off.

(outside)
with purple, work same as inside, finish off.
1: with new strand of purple, sc join in bottom right corner (beginning of row 1), working through both colors, pink in front. (this counts as first sc). sc up side of next two rows, (2 stitches), 3 sc in first sc on row 3, sc in next 2 sc, 3 sc in last sc, sc down side of rows (2 stitches).
Finish off, leaving long end for sewing.


*as you may have noticed, right and left ears are just mirror images of each other, but must be done so because of how the front and back are joined*

Make eyes, fangs, and whiskers from felt scraps.

As usual, do not claim this pattern as your own, sell this pattern, or sell things made from this pattern. However, I don't mind if you make things for charity and whatnot, and if you use this pattern, it is always appreciated if you link back to it! :)

OMG this so cute and perfect. Exactly what I'm looking for since 1997. I'm a very huge fan of Rattata and Raticate but I couldn't find any plush toys from Rattata or Ratticate which makes me very, very sad because I want them soooooooo bad. But this Rattata is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Awesome job!!!! But how does this amigurumis work??? I never had anything to do with anything like amigurumis or knitting or crochet.

Sure, I'd be glad to, but it'll have to wait just a little bit. I have a few other commissions I'm working on at the moment, and I don't want to take on too much work at once. So if you want, I'll get back to you when I finish those?

Hey, I'm finally done with my other commissions! I have one more thing at home that I need to finish up in the next week and a half, but I can work on that off and on. Did you for sure want a Rattata? And I was wondering if you wanted it in this dark shade of purple, or the light color like it appears on the games? I had originally intended to make it lighter, but that was the only shade of purple I had at the time. I just need to know, because I don't have either shade at the moment, and need to know which one to get when I can. It might have to wait a week or so before I can buy the color, but we can at least start discussing it now, if you want. :)

KazzysPlushEmporium Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeah! I didn't think you remembered! xD the darker shade looks nice, but if you think it would look better lighter that's fine too. I don't mine what shade. :)

It's ok, if you want to do a trade, I have quite a bit to catch up on as well so take your time with things :)

Milayou Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Nah, I wouldn't forget! ;) It just took me a LOT longer than I thought to finish the last commission I was making. I do think it would look better in a lighter shade though, and it will give me a good excuse to make a few minor alterations to the pattern. It shouldn't look drastically different, it'll just make a few parts come together more nicely (I hope, anyway). I'll let you know when I can get started for sure, since I'm also out of stuffing at the moment. (I used the last of it for that commission, since it was two pillows, they took quite a bit of stuffing.)

Alright! I finally got some more stuffing, and the purple I needed on Friday, and finished up something I was making for a friend, so I should be able to start on your rattata tonight or tomorrow! So were we going to do an art trade then, or a commission? I'm fine with either one. I guess if we do an art trade, I need to decide what I'd want you to make. Would you want to do a pony or what?

Thanks for the compliment! I really am proud of this one, but with it being one of my very first ones, I feel now like there are a few things I could have done a little differently, but the pattern still comes together pretty good, I think. I'm glad you really like it! :D

Thanks for sharing the pattern. I just got into amigurumi and I am challenging myself to make all 151 original Pokemon.

Rattata is my favorite next to Trecko (don't ask why)

Once I make the ami, I will link back to your original! Thanks again for sharing the pattern!

No problem! I just hope you find the pattern pretty easy to follow. There's just a couple parts I would do differently now, but I think it's still pretty good.

Good luck with making all 151! You might need it when you get to Rhydon or someone. :)

And Treecko is one of my faves too, although Torchic was the one I picked that gen.

Thanks!

It really is a fun hobby, once you get the hang of it. Especially once you learn how to crochet in a circle (which is EASY), you can make all sorts of things based just on that! I'd say the only possibly difficult parts on this one for a beginner is the tail and front legs, just because they work up kinda small, and can be a little hard to hold on to, and the feet (if you don't know how to do a half double crochet).

Have any suggestions on what to start with or learn how? I really would love to do this. It always is more adorable then getting official things.

Milayou Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Hmm, what to start with, I'd have to think about that. I learned how to do basic crocheting from my mom, and my aunt got me into circles and things. If you google "crochet dictionary" you can find some terms and explanations of different stitches and things. This one seems to be helpful :[link]

As for the abbreviations, most patterns have what they stand for at the beginning, so they should be easy to figure out.

Otherwise, I could possibly upload some other patterns that would be easier for beginners. Or if you have questions, you could ask me or someone else. I would be glad to *try* to explain anything you might have a question about. Most of my stuff is pretty basic though. I'm just now learning how to do a few more complicated things.

As for starting a piece of work, you almost always start with a slipknot, and then do chain stitches from there. If you're doing rows, you then do sc (single crochets) in the chain stitches, and go back and forth from there, or if going in a circle, you usually chain 2, and then do 6 single crochets all in the first chain. Or some people use the magic ring/circle method, which I just recently learned.
It might sound hard if you don't know the terms, but it's really not once you start it. (sorry if that was a bit much!) :)

Oh wow! This will really help! Thank you! I think my grandma knows a little, once she is better i'll ask some things.

I'll try and learn everything I can to understand all the terms.

It would be lovely to see some of your other patterns. Though it is up to you. You really don't have too. And i'd turn to you since you seem so helpful and kind. :heart:

That was a bit confusing but i'll try to learn once my Grandma is out of the hospital. Thank's so much for the detailed and nice response<3 Gave me some confidence to try!

Oh, you can definitely expect to see some more patterns. I've been meaning to put them up for a long time, I just never really got around to it, I guess since I only recently starting posting pics of my dolls.

Thanks though! I'm glad I could help some. It can be confusing at first. Like, I never knew there was a term for 'yarn over' (yo). It's just when you put the yarn over your hook before pulling it through a stitch.

But hopefully your grandma can help you too, it definitely makes it easier when you have someone to show you. Hope she gets better soon!

I was thinking about just sharing it. Although a couple parts of it might be a little hard to figure out, I think I wrote it down in a way that would be pretty easily understood by anyone who crochets. I'll let you know if I get it up soon, if you wanted the pattern. I'd have to type it out first.

Love your icon by the way, it's cute! Although Foongus is kind of a weird pokemon...

But if you think I should post it anywhere else, just let me know! I wasn't really sure where to post it here.

And yeah, Shroomish is great too. I actually used a Breloom for a while on Pearl, I think. Truthfully, I like Foongus, but the first time I saw him, I was like, "whuuuuut?"
