#FASTEN Galarian Corsola Amigurumi Pattern



Hi folks!! I'm so incredibly excited to share my latest pattern with you. I've been working on this little bugger for the past few weeks and I'm super pumped about the way he turned out. I'm a fan of the classic, Jhotonian Corsola, but its Galarian counterpart is just irresistible. <3 Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for a #FROG post about the design process, too!

I have yet to catch one in game, but now that I have a stuffy to call my own, I feel like I've gotten the Pokedex entry :').

As always, a free downloadable copy of the pattern can be found here (on Ravelry). If you end up making a Galarian Corsola, I'd LOVE to see photos if your little guy (or gal)! Share your pics on Instagram and don't forget to tag me @frogandfasten #frogandfasten.

Grab some yarn, scroll down for the pattern, and let's hop to it!

Pattern Notes
Most components of this pattern are meant to be worked in the round. The first round of all of the spherical body parts begin with a Magic Ring. 

Some of the rounds will be crocheted in front loops only, in back loops only, or in both loops. If it is not explicitly stated in the pattern, please crochet in both loops.

This pattern is free to download and use. It is not for sale and it is not to be distributed by anyone else. If you would like to share this pattern, kindly share a link to my Ravelry, Instagram, or blog!

Take your hook out of the loop and add a stitch marker to hold your current loop in place. Do not cut your yarn.

After row 10, put a stitch marker into the current loop.
Do not cut or fasten off your piece yet! 

Body waves 
  • For this part, use the other yarn tail from your ball of yarn. We will now be adding the waves to Corsola’s underbelly piece.
Place a stitch marker in the first stitch of row 10. (The green stitch marker shows the first stitch on my piece.)
We will now begin crocheting in rows. Turn after each row. 



For wave #1, skip over the green stitch marker. Insert
your hook into the second stitch of your work as seen above.

Corsola’s underbelly should look like this. I have labelled the waves in the photo below:  


     
Wave #1 and #2 will be at the front of Corsola’s body (where his face is).
Wave #3 and #4 will be on the left side of his body.
Wave #5 will be at the back.
Wave #6 and #7 will be on the right side of his body.

Once you have finished crocheting all of the small waves, you are ready to leave a long yarn tail from the underbelly. Make sure you leave a very long yarn tail (approx 120 cm) because you need enough to sew each stitch of the underbelly to Corsola’s body.

Finishing Touches


Using magenta and white roving, needle-felt the details on Corsola’s eyes. Make sure the magenta details are slanted to give Corsola a sad look. You can alternatively cut out felt pieces instead of needle felting the details.










When sewing on Corsola’s branches, the two in front sit quite high on his back. The two rear branches are sit much lower on his back, almost at his bum!










Gotcha! Corsola was caught!
