Since the recent launch of Pokémon Go, the popular augmented reality app, the Internet has been abuzz with how to catch them all. While browsing my Pinterest newsfeed, I began to notice crochet patterns popping up all over the place with Pokémon inspiration.
From poké ball patterns, to amigurumi, players are literally weaving together their love of the game with their artistic talents to produce some really cool items. This is one of the things that I love about crochet, the opportunities are limitless when It comes up to hand-crafting gifts, décor, and accessories to express hobbies and interests.
Poké ball inspired:
Check out our own poké ball coasters. After all, you need something to set your cold drinks on while you walk around playing the game, right?
This poké bag created by Athena Handmade is awesome! This was created to hold the items used during the original Pokémon trading card game.
Hooking Rainbows has created a unique poké ball scarf that is both fun and functional. I can’t wait to make and wear this when it gets cool out.
Looking for a new Nintendo DS cover? i Crochet Things has a DS poké ball cover pattern, which I’m pretty sure would also be great used as a coin purse, or even adapted into a cell phone case.
