Get Your Cute On With 7 Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns

For beginners, hearing the word “amigurumi” can be a little scary. But, don’t sweat it. It’s just the term used to describe any knitted or crocheted stuffed toy. (You can read more on the word amigurumi in Lisa’s awesome post.)

Amigurumi is often small, which means you can use those crazy-short lengths of scrap yarn to make arms, legs, eyes, tails — any little piece of a cute toy.

Purple Stitch Project Monster Amigurumi

The “purple stitch project” in the name of this pattern is just because of its color; it’s actually donated in honor of Vickie Howell’s Purple Stitch Project, a charitable organization that benefits kids with epilepsy. Make your monster fierce or friendly with just a change of the smile.

Amigurumi Corgi

This would make a great gift for your corgi-loving friends. This cute puppy uses safety eyes and a safety nose, but you could also opt to embroider the features with black scrap yarn. You could even make a bigger version of this one by using super-bulky yarn and a larger hook.

Betty Prickles the Hedgehog Pincushion

I like this amigurumi not just for her adorable name but also because she shows us a very creative function! Crocheters sometimes forget that amigurumi can do more than just sit pretty on a shelf. This button-nosed cutie can hold pins and even yarn needles!
