Pikmin Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

Originally created in 2001 for the Nintendo Gamecube, Pikmin is a real time strategy game which spawned two sequels in 2004 and 2013. In the Pikmin games you control an astronaut who uses Pikmin, cute little plant like creatures, it order to help them retrieve parts and fight against the enemies they encounter.
