Bowser Crochet Pattern

Happy Sunday!

Here it is – My Bowser pattern. I cannot believe that I am finally finished (with the exception of the hair which I  still need to attach). Halfway through I started second-guessing myself and thought that I really went overboard with the size. However, now that Bowser is finished and seeing him next to Mario and Luigi I have no more regrets! The Super Mario series is finished and it finished off strong…would you agree? I will add more pictures once the hair is complete.

Parts of this project can get quite repetitive (i.e. the body, shell, shell rim and spikes). If you know me then you know that the reason I love amigurumi is that you don’t often have to repeat the same sequence over and over. This for me gets boring very quickly. Though parts of this project were tedious, looking at the finished results makes it more than worth it.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy project then this isn’t the pattern you’re looking for. I couldn’t tell you accurately how long it will take you to complete this project because the babies slowed my down. Some days I was able to crochet and others not at all. So, if you decide to make Bowser please let me know how long it takes you.

I made two alterations to the pattern after the fact. The first is that I added fingernails to the fingers and toes. Initially, I just crocheted them without the nails and was going to add them afterwards. Then I realised that there was a way for me to crochet the nails so that it continued into the fingers and toes.

Secondly, the way that I crocheted the head and neck meant that there was black showing around the edges at the back. While this isn’t a huge deal because the collar partly hides it,  I can be a stickler for details. I amended the pattern by putting a colour change to grass green for the last row.

Due to the length of this pattern I have split it into two posts – the pattern post and the assembly post. This should help with load time and just makes it a bit easier.

Before I leave you to get on with the pattern I will leave you with some advice. When it comes time to assemble your Bowser grab a cut of tea and put on that show you’ve been meaning to binge-watch! You’re going to be there for a while! Just remember to take your time, if you made it this far there is no point rushing it at the end and ruining the outcome. Take your time – you won’t regret it!
