White Blood Cell (Leukocyte) Amigurumi

Amigurumi Projects, For Science!

More science-inspired amigurumi!  This little white blood cell plushie can be crocheted up very quickly and is darned cute IMHO.  It’s about 10cm tall, about the same size as the red blood cell pattern I posted earlier.

You’ll need:

  • white or off-white yarn (worsted weight shown here)
  • size F/3.75 mm crochet hook
  • safety eyes (15 mm here)

Stitches used are single crochet (sc), increase (inc), and invisible decrease (invdec).

Body (sphere):

  • 1) 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) *sc x 5, inc* x 6 (42)
  • 8-15) sc around for 8 rounds (42)
  • 16) *sc x 5, invdec* x 6 (36)
  • 17) *sc x 4, invdec* x 6 (30)
  • 18) *sc x 3, invdec* x 6 (24)… add safety eyes
  • 19) *sc x 2, invdec* x 6 (12)
  • 20) invdec around until hole can be covered by flap, FO and weave in tail

Bumps (okay, they’re not really bumps, but they look that way):

  • 1) 4 sc in magic ring (4)
  • 2) inc x 4 (8), sl st, FO and leave tail to sew to body

Make as many bumps as you like and sew them on (actual WBCs have many more, and they’re smaller, but this is a chibi version).

:D
