Amigurumi Patterns – TV and Anime
Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1)
This pattern is for Master Shake, Frylock and Meatwad and requires plastic canvas to reinforce Master Shake and Frylock. Chiyo ChiChi (Father Cat) from Azumanga Daioh
Chiyo-Chichi, the short tempered cat father of Chiyo-Chan makes, no sense and this is perhaps why I love him so. Rising from the fevered dreams of Osaka and Sakakke, he now takes Amigurumi crochet form in this easy pattern. Domo-Kun – Large (Domokun)
Domo-kun, a strange yet very polite creature that hatched from an egg, likes to rock, watch tv, hang out with an old rabbit dude and pass gas when nervous, is here for you in Amigurumi form. This Domo is a good medium size, finishes up to around 10 inches tall. Domo-Kun – Small (Domokun)
This is a smaller, roughly 5 inch tall Domo-Kun that is worked in joins rather than a spiral and has a crocheted red mouth panel instead of an added felt panel. If you aren’t familiar with working in joined rounds, make sure you watch the video that is linked in the pattern. Sgt Frog (Keroro Gunso) (can mod for other squad members)
Cute, wildly screwy, moody, kind of a little creep, Keroro Gunsou (Sgt Frog) has ambitions to take over the world and appreciates a good WcDonald’s burger. An alien invader from the planet Keron, he and his troop of subordinates are here to take over or destroy Pekopon (earth).
Amigurumi Patterns – Videogames
This flexible pattern can be used to make an Alien Hominid doll that is around 7 inches tall. The antennas are made with bobby pins and yellow paint. We had Alien Hominid for the Gamecube and it was a fun and really well loved game. Angry Birds Red Cardinal
Who hasn’t heard of Angry Birds? Nobody, that’s who. I don’t play the game myself, but my mom loves it and I made this Bird and the Pig below for her Christmas gift. The pattern is fairly simple although the tail instructions have confused a few people. Check the comments for more information. Angry Birds Pig
This Angry Birds Pig pattern can be modified to make the various incarnations of pigs, of which there are many from what I can gather. All parts are crochet with some felt details and black 6mm safety eyes are great for the pupils if you have them. Batman from Gotham City Impostors
Inspired by the awesomeness that is Gotham City Impostors, this amigurumi dark knight has a little stubby build that matches the style of the game art in loading screens, business bat mascot and the calling card. Big Daddy Bouncer from Bioshock
This would have to be the pattern I am most proud of. A small but surprisingly detailed rendition of Mr. Bubbles, a Bouncer Big Daddy from one of my favorite games of all time, Bioshock. This pattern has tons of sewing and finicky pieces and is not for the faint of heart. Big Daddy Bouncer Replica Doll from Bioshock 2
This pattern is for a replica of the Bouncer Big Daddy dolls that can be found in Pauper’s Drop in the game Bioshock 2, less the orange screwdriver in the head. It was made to be relatively sized to a child as the in game doll would have been to a little sister. Borderlands (2) Cl4P-TRP (Claptrap)
Inspired by quite possibly the best character in Borderlands and Borderlands 2, Claptrap is a stair-challenged and somewhat pathetic general purpose steward bot. The doll is around 7 inches tall and reinforced with plastic canvas. Super Goombagurumi Brothers
These little Goombas finally got tired of being stepped on and decided to emulate the Super Mario Brothers and seek their own adventures! Creeper from Minecraft
That’sssss a very nice everything you’ve got there… It’d be a shame if anything were to happen to it… Plastic canvas reinforcements are recommended for this pattern to create and retain a cubic shape. Goomba (Goombah) from Super Mario Brothers
This Goomba pattern was originally made as a catnip toy and is quite simple and easy to make. Great for beginners and a must for classic or modern Super Mario fans. Katamari Prince
Na, na na na na na na na Katamari Damacy! From the genius mind of Keta Takahashi, the Katamari Prince is adorable in amigurumi form. If you look on Ravelry there are some excellent Katamari patterns to complement him. Kirby
This Kirby pattern makes a 6 inch Kirby doll and if you happen to be a Super Smash Brothers fan, the pattern for a Super Mario hat is also included, on account of when Kirby ate fools, he often wore their hat or a hat in their likeness. Link (Toon Link) Playset from Legend of Zelda
This pattern is for a playset of Toon Link from Legend of Zelda Windwaker. Included is a bomb, a Chuchu, pig, sword and shield for Link. There is a fair bit of sewing in this pattern but it is worth it. Noby Noby Boy
From an amazingly creative, peaceful and confusing game, Noby Noby Boy is one of my favorite PS3 games. Another Keita Takahashi gem, the dynamic environments are so very full of weird and whimsy. Portal – Companion Cube
The weighted companion cube is the most widely known and much loved iconic visual reference to Portal and Portal II. So loyal and always there for you, it would be a shame to incinerate this fine friend. Portal – Chell
This pattern is for a Portal 2 style Chell playset. It includes Chell, her portal device and a weighted companion cube. There is a fair bit of sewing involved in this pattern so it is not or the faint of heart. SackBoy from Little Big Planet
A floppy little cutie, clearly knitted, and yet screaming to be recreated in crochet, he is, the reason I pursued learning how to make amigurumi… I wanted a sackboy of my very own. This pattern is for a Sackboy that is proportionately sized to a PS3 controller so you can make him his very own pod!
Amigurumi Patterns – OtherAnimal
This is a very basic beginner pattern that I used to teach local workshops. It can be modified to be a bear, cat, dog etc depending on ears made. The pattern includes tutorial videos for round by round instruction and is recommended for those new to the craft. Chibi Animals
This pattern offer various ears allowing you to make a cute little bear, bunny, cat or dog. It’s pretty simple, works up fast and is well suited to beginners. Chibi Kawaii Amigurumi Beginner Pattern
Another great beginner pattern, this one makes a keychain sized amigurumi that can be a bunny, cat, dog, duck, strawberry, eggplant or mushroom. The pattern is accompanied by a start to finish tutorial video and is recommended for beginners. Chhubby Animals Pattern
This is a great beginner pattern, that makes a 2 inch tall cat, rabbit bear or pig and can be modified to suit other animals as well. Crochet Hook
In it’s very own “Pimp my Ride” putting things in things style splendor, I present to you the amigurumi crochet, crochet hook… an amigurumi plushie of a… crochet hook. I know right? Cupcake
This pattern makes a small cupcake that would be perfect for a keychain. Deadmau5
Electro-house fans rejoice, everyone else commence scratching your heads. This Deadmau5 (pronounced deadmouse) amigurumi is small, making a perfect keychain for a fan. Hamburger (one piece with minimal sewing)
This Cheeseburger or Hamburger pattern makes an amazing cat toy when stuffed to the gills with catnip. It is made in one piece, has almost no sewing and works up way faster than individual pieces (patty, cheese, lettuce, buns) made separately then stitched together. Rabbit
A cute little bunny rabbit in a fetching Bill Cosby style sweater, what could possibly top that? Maybe a carrot. This works up to around 6 inches and is well suited to beginners. Originally made as a gift for a baby named Adam.
Crochet Patterns – Accessories (not amigurumi)Lacy Sock Yarn Cowl
Necks get cold and sometimes, just sometimes, I like to make practical things. This cowl uses up only one small ball of sock yarn and is light and airy. Cyclops Baby Booties
These were made while I was watching Futurama, the single purple eye being inspired by the lovely lady Leela. They work up quickly and are good gifts for breeders with good senses of humor.
