Rowlet Plush Free Crochet Pattern

When Pokemon Arceus came out, I started playing it like many other fans. I quickly fell in love with the starter Rowlet for how cute and round he is. I knew of course that I had to crochet my own Rowlet plush. I first free-handed this plush as I just wanted it for myself and didn’t think others would be that interested in the crochet pattern. I was wrong. Over several months, many of you have asked for a Rowlet pattern and I just didn’t have one since it was just a spur of the moment project. I decided to go back and recreate this cute pokemon so I could write down the pattern for you all. Here is the long-awaited Rowlet crochet pattern. I hope you love making it as much as I did!

For this pattern, I used Premier Parfait Chunky yarn (which is my favorite yarn) for a soft pastel look. Click here to get Premier yarn for this project. If you enjoy this pattern, please give me a follow on social media and let me know what other free patterns you would love to see! Also, don’t forget to tag me in your creations on instagram. Happy crocheting 🙂

MATERIALS & TOOLS

  • Yarn: Premier Parfait Chunky (Size 6) in mint, white, tan & orange
  • Crochet hook (Size 7.0 mm)
  • Polyfil – fiberfill stuffing
  • Felt for face details – black, white & orange
  • Fabric glue
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker
  • Sewing pins

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CH – chain
  • SC – single crochet
  • INC – single crochet increase (2 SC in each stitch)
  • DEC – decrease (I use the invisible decrease in all of my creations for a cleaner look)
  • FO – fasten off
  • Magic ring – Make a loop, leaving a long tail to work with. Insert hook in the center of loop, yarn over, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, pull through to make the first chain (this does not count as a stitch). Continue to crochet over the loop and tail with the number of stitches called for. There are many wonderful YouTube videos on how to make a magic circle if you are a visual learner! Always move your stitch marker to the last stitch in the round.

THIS PATTERN IS WORKED IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS.
