I recently dug up my copy of Pokemon Soul Silver while doing some autumn cleaning and I became obsessed with it all over again. The second generation of Pokemon games introduced two new types in Steel and Dark, the latter being my favourite type. The Dark-types, Murkrow and Umbreon are some of my most loved Pokemon to date.
When deciding which version to get, I gravitated to Pokemon Silver is because of how cool the box legendary, Lugia, looks. It’s this monstrous, psychic bird with an awesome wing design and I loved the challenge of translating the design into amigurumi.
I will be splitting this pattern into two parts since it’s such an involved design with a lot of different pieces to crochet. Part 1 will focus on the head and body, and Part 2 will guide you through the wings and feet, and tail.
