Basic Human(oid) Amigurumi Pattern

Amigurumi Projects

So… I have some new projects I’ve been working on, but somebody’s birthday is right around the corner, so I won’t post them yet :)

I thought it might be a good idea to post a generic, customizable amigurumi pattern for humans and other figures, like these guys:

Just start with the basic pattern here, and add clothes, hair etc. to make any (humanoid) character you want!  Final size is 6″/15cm if you’re using a size F/3.75mm crochet hook.  Full pattern (on the blog, not in a pdf) follows next: it’s quick and easy, and is totally suitable for beginners.

 

Stitches used

  • single crochet (sc), increase (inc), invisible decrease (invdec), and slip stitch (sl)

What you’ll need

  • yarn in colours of choice for skin, clothes, etc.
  • size F/3.75 mm crochet hook (for worsted weight yarn)
  • yarn needle to sew pieces together
  • safety eyes (15mm or larger recommended)
  • stuffing

Head and body

  • 1)    start with skin-coloured yarn, 6 sc in magic ring (6)
  • 2)    inc x 6 (12)
  • 3)    *sc, inc* x 6 (18)
  • 4)    *sc x 2, inc* x 6 (24)
  • 5)    *sc x 3, inc* x 6 (30)
  • 6)    *sc x 4, inc* x 6 (36)
  • 7-10)   sc around for 4 rounds (36)
  • 11)    *sc x 4, invdec* x 6 (30)
  • 12)    *sc x 3, invdec* x 6 (24)
  • 13)    *sc x 2, invdec* x 6 (18)
  • 14)    *sc, invdec* x 6 (12)
  • 15)    sc around (12), add safety eyes and stuff head

  • 27)    *sc x 2, invdec* x 6 (18)
  • 28)    *sc, invdec* x 6 (12)
  • 29)    stuff body, invdec around until flap covers hole, sew closed and finish off

Arms (make 2)

  • 1)    start with skin-coloured yarn, 4 sc in magic ring (4)
  • 2)    inc x 4 (8)
  • 3)    *sc x 2, invdec* x 2 (6)
  • 4)    sc around (6)
  • 5-10)   switch to clothing-coloured yarn, sc around for 6 rounds (6), sl st, FO and leave tail to sew to body

Legs (make 2)

  • 1)    using clothing-coloured yarn, 6 sc in magic ring (6)
  • 2)    *sc, inc* x 3 (9)
  • 3-4)    sc around x 2 (9)
  • 5)    *sc x 2, invdec* x 2, sc (7)
  • 6-10)    sc around for 5 rounds (7), sl st, FO and leave tail to sew to body

Now just sew the pieces together, and add details to make any character you can think of :)
