Amigurumi is a Japanese art form that translates to crocheted or knitted stuffed doll. We just call them fun. The amigurumi world is filled with creatures of all shapes and sizes. Once you make an amigurumi, you might just get hooked.
Here we give you 7 Free Crochet Amigurumi Patterns: Amigurumi Crochet
with Crochet Me. Nearly all the patterns call for knowing just a few
basic crochet stitches.
The oversized Doug & Gordo Dolls by Kim Werker are great cuddly companions for children-even the eyes are crocheted, so there's no choking hazard. These crocheted Canadians would also be great sitting on a shelf in the office, for comic relief just when you need it. These easy crochet dolls are suitable for beginning crocheters.
The Dread Pirate Sam by Amy J. Shimel will have you talking like a pirate as you channel Johnny Depp into your crocheted creation. This amigurumi pattern has several parts, but they're all easy to crochet.
Funky Stuffed Toys (Cat & Dog) by Judith L. Swartz are perfect crochet patterns for teaching a child to crochet. Made up of simple rectangles, these crochet critters are great stash-busters as well.
The super-adorable Sir Stephen, the Bunny by Donna Childs may become your go-to crochet pattern for baby presents, especially worked in organic cotton.
Frog Charming by Toni Rexroat is pensive as he awaits his princess. Stitch him up to give as a present along with a copy of the The Frog Prince fairy tale.
The sassy Ewenice McFleece by Christine Vitron aspires to a life of drama-maybe as Sheep no. 23 in the Serta commercial. For now, she can be yours as you practice an innovative thrumming technique. A video at CrochetMe.com guides you through the process.
Crochet A Lamb by Meg Grossman is a bit of a fancy lamb. Derived from a pattern in Weldon's Practical Needlework, she has a crocheted fleece fitted over a cotton-batting body. This makes her perfect for showcasing handspun yarn to make a gift for a fibery friend.
