If you're ready to add a Squirtle to your crochet Pokemon collection? Here's a direct guide on how I created this character using the pattern from @tashs_crochet and a few essential supplies:

1. Gather Your Materials:
- Yarn Bee yarn for its softness and versatility
- Size 5 crochet hook for optimal stitch control
- Polypill stuffing for a plush finish

2. Following the Pattern:
I utilized the pattern provided by @tashs_crochet, which offered clear instructions. Pay close attention to details like the turtle shell, ensuring it doesn't become too cone-like during construction.

3. Tail and Shell Placement:
When attaching the tail and shell to the body, ensure they're positioned correctly and securely. The tail should be at the base of the body and shell, preventing misalignment. Stitch the tail at the top at multiple locations to create curls and secure it firmly. Additionally, stitch the tail to the shell for added stability.

4. Nose Placement:
Learn from my mistake: when attaching all the pieces make sure the nose part of the head is facing the front. Avoid the blunder of placing it backward, which can alter the squirtle's expression.

Crafting a squirtle amigurumi is a delightful project that allows for both creativity and precision. With these tips and a bit of attention to detail, you'll have your very own cuddly friend ready to accompany you on your crochet adventures.
