I have always been a Pokemaniac. I can remember getting picked on in school for having Pokemon stuff, or people thinking it was weird that I had boxes and boxes of old Pokemon cards. When I was ten, I put sticky tack on the backs of all my duplicate Pokemon cards and postered my room with them, floor to ceiling. I watched the show, played the game, knew the stats. In short, I was obsessed.
Well, not was. I am obsessed! It makes me so happy that younger generations are getting into Pokemon now, too, with Pokemon Go. It’s great that it’s the original 150 (I’m not a gen-one only person, but they’re the ones I grew up with and know everything about) and it’s something that everyone can talk about. I went to the zoo with a friend a few weeks back, and it was AWESOME hunting for Pokemon. Everyone came together and was so friendly – it was like, “You’re hunting for this Dratini? So am I. Let’s be buds and find them together. TEAM MYSSSSSSSTIC!” It’s amazing. It’s what I dreamed of as a child, staring at my Pokemon card wall in my room. Rather than being picked on for liking Pokemon, I was becoming more social and making friends through Pokemon.
Alright, I get it. This is a craft blog, and I’m getting all mushy-gushy on you. You’re here for the Pokeball pattern, right?
I thought it would be fun to make these, one in each color of the Pokemon Go teams, and share it. This pattern is pretty straight forward, and I really like the end result!
Pokeball pattern available to download here!
I would really love to see how your project turns out, and know what team you’re on! Post a pic on here, or drop me a line in the comments, or snap a pic and tag me on Instagram @craftchampion
Happy crocheting, friends!

Wow-so cute and clever! 😉
It was almost as if I wrote the post myself. Isn’t it kinda bittersweet to remember being picked on in school because we liked something, instead of making friends through it, and now those adults are probably playing the very same game they mocked us with? But we remained strong and the passion goes on! 😊
Thanks for the pattern!
We can’t all be right 😀 Pokemon forever! Glad you liked the pattern, and thanks for sharing!
