Free Pattern Friday: Munchlax Amigurumi

This week's Free Pattern Friday pattern is a 6" tall amigurumi of Munchlax from Pokemon. The pattern is available on Ravelry or you can find it written below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at icrochetthings@gmail.com.

This was not actually a pattern that I planned on doing, but someone on Etsy wanted me to make them one so I did. It never occurred to me to make him before, which is odd because I already have a Snorlax amigurumi. I guess I just forgot this guy existed, which is a shame because he's pretty cute. He reminds me a bit of Totoro and now I kind of want to make a Totoro pattern, but there's like 5 billion Totoro patterns on the internet and I don't really have anything new to offer.

Also, I just realized when I linked to the Snorlax pattern that the Snorlax pictures are not really the right color. I used the exact same yarn on Munchlax as I did Snorlax and for some reason they look vastly different. I need to remember to retake those pictures. Anyway, TGIF and happy crocheting!
