Airplane Amigurumi

Hello airplane!

IMG_0298.PNG

I made this airplane for an adorable little guy, although now I’m doubting if it’s baby safe. Should work into safety measures, but posting it cos I’d been wanting to post it for a while now. You can make this using an easy peasy amigurumi pattern I’ve come up with.

Yarn : Gray & Blue Acrylic yarn
Hook : 2.5mm
Note : Work in continuous rounds, do not join.

Airplane nose & body:
Starting with the gray coloured yarn for its nose,
Round 1: Magic Circle, 6sc into the circle & then pull it close. (6)
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (12)
Round 3: [sc in the sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (18)
Round 4: [sc in the next 2sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (24)
Round 5: [sc in the next 3sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (30)
Round 6: sc around. (30)
Round 7: sc around. (30)
Join in with the blue coloured yarn,
Round 8: [sc in the next 4sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (36)
Round 9: sc around. (36)
Round 10: sc around. (36)
Round 11: [sc in the next 5sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (42)
Round 12: sc around. (42)
Round 13: sc around. (42)
Round 14: [sc in the next 5sc, dec in the next 2sc] * 6 times. (36)
Round 15: sc around. (36)
Round 16: sc around. (36)

You can choose to do this before or after making the body of the plane. But I prefer to make and join this as I go.

The airplane is now baby safe, and is an ideal gift/toy for any baby pilots and older ones. However I decided I’ll go fancy and add in the retro effect to the plane with twin blade propellers and top wing. ( Excuse me if I’m naming them all wrong)

Top front wing:
Round 1: Magic Circle, 6sc into the circle & then pull it close. (6)
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (12)
Round 3: [sc in the sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (18)
Round 4: [sc in the next 2sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (24)
Round 5: sc around. (24)
:
Round 33: sc around. (24)
Round 34: [sc in the next 2sc, dec in the next 2sc] * 6 times. (18)
Round 35: [sc in the next sc, dec in the next 2sc] * 6 times. (12)
Round 46: dec in every two sc around. (6)

Front Propeller:
Round 1: Magic Circle, 4sc into the circle & then pull it close. (4)
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (8)
Round 3: sc around. (8)
:
Round 7: sc around. (8)
Round 8: dec in every two sc around. (4)
Round 9: sc around. (4)
Round 10: sc around. (4)
Round 11: 2sc in each sc around. (8)
Round 12: sc around. (8)
:
Round 16: sc around. (8)
Round 17: dec in every two sc around. (4)
Although the propeller was a bit twisty, I thought it looked cool that way. Now that I look at it, if anyone has a better pattern please let me know. 🙂
