About copyright: you can do whatever you like with the pattern, it is really nice when
people like what I have designed, but please it would be nice to reference where you
have found it!
If there is anything you do not understand or there are any mistakes, please, send
me a message! I write the patterns as a way of remembering what I have done. They
haven’t been tested.
As you can see in the way I write, English is not my first language. So, you could
come across some mistakes and grammatical inconsistencies. Sorry and my
apologies!
ABOUT YARN:
Use any yarn you like. I’ve used an acrylic yarn quite chunky, 50 gr=50 meters.
I’ve used 4 skeins in fucsia, 4.5 skeins in green and 0.3 skeins in yellow.
ABOUT GAUGE:
It is not important, as far as you are consistent with your tension.
ABOUT HOOK:
It depends on the yarn. I’ve used a 4 mm hook, so the stitches were tight as required
in amigurumi. If I had used the yarn for a scarf, the hook would have been a 5 or 5.5
mm.
YOU WILL NEED:
Yarn in three colors: fucsia, green and yellow.
Two black eyes.
Stuffing.
Tapestry needle.
ABOUT CROCHET TERMS:
I’ve followed the US terminology.
Stitch: st
Chain: ch
Slip stitch: sl st
Single crochet: sc
Half double crochet: hdc
Double crochet: dc
Treble crochet: tr
Double treble crochet: dtr
Picot: ch 3 and sl st in the 1st st (I like how it is explained here:
http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-crochet-a-picot-stitch.html )
ABOUT THE PATTERN:
All the pattern is worked in spirals, so do not join at the end/beginning of a
row.
All the decreases are worked as invisible decreases.
Petal: ( make 10)
Round 1: magic ring, 6 sc (alternatively, 2 ch and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook).
Round 2: 2sc in each st across (12 sts)
Round 3: [2sc in next stitch, 1sc in next st.] repeat 6 times (18 sts)
Round 4: [2sc in next stitch, 1sc in next 2st.] repeat 6 times (24 sts)
Round 5-9: sc in each st across (24 sts)
Round 10: [sc2tog in next stitch, sc in next 6st.] repeat 3 times (21 sts)
Round 11: sc in each st across (21 st)
Round 12: [sc2tog in next stitch, sc in next 5st.] repeat 3 times (18 sts)
Round 13: sc in each st across (18 st)

Round 2: 2sc in each st across (12 sts) Round 3: [2sc in next stitch, 1sc in next st.] repeat 6 times (18 sts) Round 4: [2sc in next stitch, 1sc in next 2st.] repeat 6 times (24 sts) Round 5-9: sc in each st across (24 sts) Round 10: [sc2tog in next stitch, sc in next 6st.] repeat 3 times (21 sts) Round 11: sc in each st across (21 st) Round 12: [sc2tog in next stitch, sc in next 5st.] repeat 3 times (18 sts) Round 13: sc in each st across (18 st) Round 14: [sc2tog in next stitch, sc in next 4st.] repeat 3 times (15 sts) Round 15-16: sc in each st across (15 st) Round 17: [sc2tog in next stitch, sc in next 3st.] repeat 3 times (12 sts) Round 18: sc in each st across (12 st) Fasten off Joining petals: The final row of each petal has 12 stitches, we are not stuffing the petals, so, flatten them: now we have 6 stitches (double thickness). We are going to overlap slightly each petal with the following, place one petal on top of any other in a way that only 2 chains overlap: Beginning on the 3rd st and working through both sides of the petal, sc in this stitch and the following, then sc in next two stitches but working through both petals .







Repeat this for all the petals. Finally, close the circle working through the last 2 stitches of petal 10 and the first two stitches of petal 1:







Using yellow: Round 1: magic ring, 6 sc (alternatively, 2 ch and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook). Round 2: 2sc in next 6 st, (12 sts) Round 3: [2sc in next st, 1sc in next st] repeat 6 times (18 sts) Round 4: [1sc in next st., 2sc in next st, 1sc in next st] repeat 6 times (24 sts) Round 5: [2sc in next st, 1sc in next 2st] repeat 6 times (30 sts) Round 6: [1sc in next 2st., 2sc in next st, 1sc in next 3st] repeat 6 times (36 sts) Round 7: [2sc in next st, sc in next 17st] repeat 2 times (38 sts) Round 8-9: sc in each st across (38sts) Round 10: working in FLO, [sl st, picot, sl st in next st] repeat 19 times




Using the unused back loop of round 10, join the face to the petals:




Eyes can be attached and mouth embroidered. Head: back (green) Using green: Round 1-9: work the first 9 rounds of the face. Round 10: we work the sepals: [sl st, ch 9, sl st in 2nd ch from hk, sc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in next 2 ch, tr in next two ch, dtr in next ch, sk 4 st of round 9 and sl st in next st] repeat 7 times. NOTE: as 7x5=35 and we have 38 st, you need to skip 5 st, three times and 4 st 4 times.




The sepals will curl, I like the effect!. This part can be sewn to the petals and face, leaving a 6st space for the neck: the body and the head will be joined there. Arms (make two)




Using green. It is better to stuff the arms as you go. Round 1: magic ring, 6 sc (alternatively, 2 ch and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook). Round 2: 2sc in each st (12 sts) Round 3: [2sc in next stitch, 1sc in next st.] repeat 6 times (18 sts) Round 4-7: sc in each st across (18 st) Round 8: [sc2tog in next st, 1sc in next 4st.] repeat 3 times (15 sts). Round 9: sc in each st across (15 st) Round 10: [sc2tog in next st, 1sc in next 3st.] repeat 3 times (12 sts). Round 11-35: sc in each st across (12 st) Fasten off Round 11-20: sc in each st across (10sts) Round 21: [sc2tog in next st, 1sc in next 3st.] repeat 2 times (8 sts) And then fasten off. Legs (make two) It is better to stuff the legs as you go. Round 1: magic ring, 6 sc (alternatively, 2 ch and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook). Round 2: 2sc in each st (12 sts). Round 3: [2sc in next stitch, 1sc in next st.] repeat 6 times (18 sts) Round 4: [1sc in next st., 2sc in next st, 1sc in next st] repeat 6 times (24 sts) Round 4: working in BLO, sc in each st across (24 sts). Round 5: [sc2tog in next st, 1sc in next 6st.] repeat 3 times (21 sts). Round 6-7: sc in each st across (21 st) Round 8: [sc2tog in next st] repeat 3 times, sc in each st across (18 sts). Round 9: [sc2tog in next st] repeat 2 times, sc in each st across (16 sts). Note: these decreases will shape the foot Round 10-35: sc in each st across (16 sts). Fasten off Body (green) Using green. We’ll join together the legs, the body is worked bottom up. This draw summarizes what we have to do to join legs in the first round of the body: Round 1:Two slip stitches to join both legs, and then sc in all the remaining stitches (28 st). Note: at the joining points you can reinforce them with an additional sc, if so, the final number of stitches would be 30. Round 2: case a) if you finished round 1 with 30 stitches: sc in every st across (30 st). Case b) if you finished round 1 with 28 stitches: [2sc in next st, sc in next 13 st] repeat 2 times (30 st). Round 3: [2sc in next st, sc in next 4 st] repeat 6 times (36 st) Note: in the following rounds we are going to make two increases in each round, as the desired body shape is: The increases will be made at the sides: (from round 14 onwards, this approach applies for decreases) Round 4: one increase at each side and sc in the remaining st (38 st) Round 5-6: sc in each st across (38st) Round 7: one increase at each side and sc in the remaining st (40 st) Round 8-9: sc in each st across (40st) Round 10: one increase at each side and sc in the remaining st (42 st) Round 11-13: sc in each st across (42st) Stuff body as you work, it’s easier! Decreases begin: Round 14: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (40 st) Round 15-16: sc in each st across (40st) Round 17: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (38 st) Round 18: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (36 st) Round 19: sc in each st across (36 st) Round 20: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (34 st) Round 21: sc in each st across (34 st) Round 22: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (32 st) Round 23: sc in each st across (32 st) Round 24: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (30 st) Round 25: sc in each st across (30 st) Round 26: four decreases evenly distributed (one at each side, one at the front and one at the back) (26 st) Round 27: joining arms. Note about joining arms: if we look at the arms and body from above we see: This round we sc in each st of the arms and body, taken care when placing the arms. So we have 12+26+12=50 st Round 28: one decrease at each side and sc in the remaining st (48 st) Round 29: [sc2tog, sc in next 4 st] repeat 8 times (40 st) Round 30: [sc2tog, sc in next 3 st] repeat 8 times (32 st) Round 31: [sc2tog, sc in next 2 st] repeat 8 times (24 st) Round 32: [sc2tog] repeat 12 times (12 st) Fasten off and finish stuffing.




Finally sew or sl st the body to the head using the open spaces we have left!
