Angry Birds Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

The pig never saw it coming…

Angry Bird is one of my mom’s favorite games and since I have made her seventy three billion NobyNoby Boys, it seemed a good idea to go with something different for her xmas gift that year, so Angry Birds it was. Things were down to the wire (it’s been nuts this year), so two amis were all I could put together, but I do believe they were a hit.

I realize there are already several patterns for these available online but between the significant portion of them that were pay (tsk tsk!), the simpler than ideal shaping on some (pig is not a perfect ball people… he’s just not!) I decided to whip these guys up on the fly all the while keeping decent enough notes to publish the pattern.

Pattern Details These were made using a 3.5 mm crochet hook and worsted weight yarn. They stand around 6 inches tall. The facial details are felt fabric glued to the surface and 6mm black safety eyes were used for the eyes. Some pieces are worked in joined rounds while others are spiral. The pieces in joined rounds typically need symmetry and will turn out better if worked in joined rounds vice spiral. The pieces calling for spiral will look better that way. While it may seem weird to keep switching from one to the other, it’s recommended the directions are followed for optimal results.
