pattern designed by: Shannon Murphree

 

This is my version of a Japanese Amigurumi design that I HAD to make, but couldn't translate.
I used a brushed acrylic for the white and regular worsted for the body, and this makes a difference. The brushed is bulkier and so requires fewer rounds. If you want to do it all in worsted, you might have to adjust this pattern.


Materials:
G hook
Two colors of yarn
Stuffing
Black embroidery floss
Tapestry needle
Directions:

Amigurumi is all done in the round, which is how I do many of my designs.
Head:
Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join to first sc.
Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc (8 sc).
Join.
Ch 1, *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*. Repeat around, Join.
Ch 1, *1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around. Join.
Ch 1, *1 sc in each of next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* around. Join.
Ch 1, do three rounds of even sc.
Ch 1, * 1 sc in each of next 3 sc, decrease over next 2 sc* around. Join.
Ch 1, *1 sc in each of next 2 sc,dec over next 2* around. Join.
Ch 1, *1 sc in next sc, dec over next 2* around. Join. Repeat.
Stuff, continue decreasing until hole is shut. Fasten off.

Begin as for head. When you get to *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next*, do that row twice.

Now do 5 rounds of even sc.
Ch 1, * sc in next 4 sc, dec over next 2 sc* around. Join.
Continue as for head, subtracting one sc between decreases until it's time to stuff; then continue decreasing until the hole is shut. End off.
