Hello and welcome! I am excited about this post because I am rather proud of the finished product.

I started doing amigurumi crochet not too long ago because I wanted to try something different with new challenges and boy did I get it! It’s almost like learning to crochet all over again but I really enjoyed the challenge. Amigurumi isn’t the kind of crochet you can do on auto piolet, you can’t just sit back and catch up on your favorite shows while crocheting. There is a lot of counting involved but it is quite fun so, after a few projects, I thought I would try my hand at my own pattern.

There are quite a lot of pieces to this pattern so it is rather long, once you get going and can see it coming together it’s kind of exciting.

Materials:

1 skein acrylic yarn of your choice (I used Red Heart super saver OMBRE in violet) 482 yards which was mare than enough.

3.5 crochet hook

Fiber fill for stuffing

Darning needle

Scissors

Abbriviations:

sc – single crochet

st – stitch

inc – increase (2 in the same stitch)

dec – invisable decrease. Link for how-to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUBbOZ1Ennk

(*) – repeat between

R1 – 2 sc in each st (12)

R2 – 1 sc, inc, repeat (18)

Finish with a long tail for sewing.

Assembly

Attach arms to side of body making sure they’re even on both sides. It’s a good idea to use a safety pin or stitch marker to be sure. There’s nothing more annoying than having to take pieces off because they’re crocked

Each eyeball fits in its corresponding socket. Sew it in place using the tail from the socket. The eyes were embordered with embroidery floss. I just used the first circle as the black and the next circle row with the blue.

Attach finished eyes to the head, sewing across twice for added stability. Hide the tails as was done with the rest.

I embroidered the mouth on with black yarn and attached the teeth just under the smile.

The spots were attached at random. It’s a good idea when you attach things to put your needle in the body just under the piece you’re attaching to achieve an invisible look.
