Crochet Butterfree by Blisca Crochet Butterfree by Blisca

Hi guys!

So here is a crochet butterfree! Since I didn't get any requests the last week or so I decided to make this one.
Butterfree is a pokemon that had quite a meaning/memory for me. 

The first pokemon game I ever got was yellow when I was around 7-8 years old. I loved it so much and played it all the time. The problem with it being pokemon yellow was that I started every journey with a pikachu, and so the first gym was horrible. I had a pokemon yellow guide but I didn't know nidoran could get a fighting type move. None of the other pokemon where effective against Brock's rock type pokemon! So I decided to get as much different pokemon as possible and use them al in the fight to see which one was most effective. That's how I stubbled op on butterfree's confusion move. I still go for butterfree every time I have to fight Brock in the first generation. Even though I know better now it bas become a habit of mine, maybe not the best habit to have but I still love my butterfree's.

But butterfree has another story. When I started a nuzlocke challenge on my fire red I had a butterfree, no special one or anything except for it's name 'Blisco'. I'm sad to say I deleted my save file before realizing how important this name was going to be for me. Now I use 'Blisca' the female form for nearly everything I do on the internet. Blisco, you might be gone but your name will live on forever!

So here is the crochet pattern for butterfree! I hope you guys enjoy it, and feel free to leave any questions or requests in the comments!

Hi Blisca, just a little question that may help me to do this pattern : For the black parts outside the upper wings, how do you place it on the wing ? Do you create 2 black pieces, one for each side, or only one for the two sides ?
Reply
:iconblisca:
Blisca Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2016
It is just one piece per wing which you fold around the outside of the wing

Just another tip I may give to you : specify wich color you use at the begginning of each instructions group, for the wings, I had a doubt on black or white.

Something doesn't fit on the body instructions : for the 3 to 6 ranks, or there is 15 stitches in each row, or while increasing, we have to do only 2 stitches before increasing.

You are correct. I think it is supposed to be 15 stitches. I'll change it in the pattern, thanks for the heads up!

Hi! I cannot continue in this step "Rnd 9-12: sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next x3, sc in next 7 sc, dec 3 times (40)". I don't understand what you mean. Could you explain me? I'm still newbie in crochet.Thank you very much.

:D :D

First you sc in the next 9 sc and then in the 10th one you sc 2 times. You have to repeat this step 3 times so; sc 9, 2 sc in next, sc 9, 2 sc in next, sc 9, 2 sc in next. Then once you've done this you end the round by sc in the next 7 sc and then after that dec in 3 times. Because you have now increased and decreased 3 times in this round you should keep the same amount of sc which is 40.

I hope this makes it a little bit more clear to you.

It's sometimes a bit hard to follow your steps, like in this case.
If I had written the pattern, I would have added some parenthesis, to have it written like this : 
(sc in the next 9 sc, 2 sc in next) * 3

Thanks for the tip. I thought myself how to make patterns and how to write them down so I don't have a guide on how to make them understandable for others.

else, you could use the way to write used here : jhonie.deviantart.com/art/Mana…
It's a bit different, but simpler for me to read, by example ^^
Oh, and on this line, something's wrong, because if we add the real number of stitches used, we come to 43 stitches used, and not the 40 from the previous lines...

Blisca Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2016
which line do you mean with 'this line'?
Reply
:iconthezeldaboss:
TheZeldaBoss Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2016
The line that was previously quoted by LoCherry, rounds 9 to 12. At the end of a round, we don't come to 40 stitches, but 43. I think it is because the increases are in the 9th and 10th stitches, and not the 10th and 11th as noted.
There is another "error" later in the upper wing instructions : when you start decreasing, you say 7 sc and a dec, but there, you only use 9 stitches of the previous round, and you come at the end to 36 stitches used instead of the 40 existing.

I am sorry. I have tried thinking of how I did it but it has been such a long time since I've made the pattern that I honestly can't remember what I did in the upper wing. It is also very difficult to count back on the original since I'm not exactly sure where the row is and a lot of the wing has been covered with the black patterns. It is impossible for me to count such a small difference as 4 stitches on it. The only thing I can suggest is that you either try just doing the stitches till you count 36, so repeat 7 sc and then 1 dec for 4 times and then just sc 4 sc behind so that you do come full circle, or that you repeat 7sc and then 1 dec 4 times and then just continue to the next round without using all the stitches in this round. You could try them out to see which works best. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. I'll make sure my new patterns will be written more carefully.

gaaaah so good! u produce so much in such a short time! I love how u get the anatomy of the Pokemon spot on (I prefer the anatomy be more perfect than the color of yarn) I love crocheting and can make patterns and such but it takes me forever to crochet anything cuz im just soo slow at crocheting. I applaud u. oh and ur graciousness for sharing the patterns! I know I suggested afew Pokemon already but I just thought of another. Scolipede, you seem to be on a bug type spree so why not a real challenge? You can prolly make it in sections but what ever. I have a lot I want to crochet befor Christmas (most of them being ur Pokemon patterns) so idk if either of us will be up for it. lol.

Thank you. I like sharing my work and I know how frustrating it is to find something cool and then find out you have to buy the pattern. I wouldn't buy it so why would I ask you to do so ;)
I just got a request and a payed assignment on my Facebook page : www.facebook.com/bliscaart
And I've also got a pokemon I want to make for christmas so it's getting quite busy. I would love to try a Scolipede but it will have to wait for a little bit. And thanks for all the support you've given me! I really appreciate it!

I feel the same way about patterns. that's great that u got a commission! I think ive gotten maybe 5 paid commissions in the past 3 years so business is kinda slow lol. most everything I make is for me or I give away/donate. Yeah around Christmas my crochet projects just keep piling up and I end up finishing very little... there is no way I will finish everything I want to before Christmas. im very intrigued on the scolipede but I kinda wanna make its pre evolutions first (there are free patterns i found for venipede and whirlipede).

Blisca Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014
I'm very happy that I got the commission. I'll have 3 crochet projects before I can start on the scolipede, so it'll probably be after christmas. I don't look up patterns at all these days, usually I just use some shapes of the patterns I've already made and put them together differently to get a new creature. Do you actually have a site where you put your work on? Your deviant art looks quite empty...

haha yeah I dont post really anything on here. I really should start posting my patterns. I have 7 right now but they are all half done and ive been working on and off with them for afew months, its time to buckle done and gettem done! I did recently start a blog to put patterns and such on but college is kinda getting in the way of really doing anything with the blog. when my semester ends I plan on posting several patterns and pictures and so much more on both deviant art and my blog.
