Free Mew Crochet Pattern

The original Pokemon Red and Blue games are being released on Nintendo’s 3DS eShop later this month to celebrate Pokemon’s 20 year anniversary.

I can’t believe it’s been that long since I played Blue for the first time, picking my new Squirtle buddy, lovingly named Franklin, and setting foot on my Pokemon adventure.

I remember the days when Pokemon rumours ran rampant on the playground and I was a dumb, gullible kid thinking that it was possible to find and capture a Mew by trying to move the truck by the SS Anne.

Here, we’ll capture the 151st Pokemon in our own way. You won’t need a Master Ball here. Exchange it for a ball of pink yarn and ready your trusty crochet hook.

Aww! Adorable! Thanks for sharing the pattern for free!

Hi,
thank you so much for this super cute pattern!
I guess you’ve got a typo in round 7/8 of the tail-part.
It says round 7 twice. Guess that’s just mew, trying to confuse us all!

Thanks so much for catching the typo!

I look forward to seeing your finished Mew!

I’ve been struggling with crocheting new so much with other patterns, but this was so clear, and the results are perfect. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!

Are you done with the book? How can we order one outside of the Canada My mew doesn’t look as good as yours! “_”

About how tall and wide is the finished mew?

Not including the feet or arms

It depends on how tight or loose you crochet. I’m a tight crocheter so my mine ends up around 5 inches tall.

Adorable, me encanta !!
