Bananas in pajamas amigurumi – Free pattern

Hello there, don’t you worry I’m not getting ahead of myself making toys from ABC shows for the baby already. This one’s a gift for a cute little girl who loves bananas in pajamas. For the first time, I’ve used knitting in amigurumi and I’m pretty pleased with myself with the way it has turned out. The pattern may not be ideally how a knit pattern is written, please bear with me and let me know if there are ways to improve it while I’m still teaching myself to knit.

Starting with the brown colored yarn,

Round 1: Magic circle, 8 sc
Round 2: [sc in the next 2 sc, dec ] * 2 times. (6)
Changing to yellow colored yarn,
Round 3: sc around. (6)
Round 4: 2sc in each sc around. (12)
Round 5: sc in each sc around.
:
Round 7:
Round 8: 2sc in the first sc, sc in the next 5sc. Repeat. (14)
Round 9: sc in each sc around. (14)
Round 10: 2sc in the first sc, sc in the next 6sc. Repeat. (16)
Round 11: sc in each sc around. (16)
Round 12: sc in each sc around. (16)

The pajamas are knitted as I’m unsure how to make neat vertical striped ones in crochet

Note: Each row is two knit rows in the same colour making a garter stitch
Note: In order to seamlessly change colors, I’ve followed the method clearly explained in the video.
Row 1. Cast on 15 stitches in blue, knit 15 stitches using blue
Row 2-6. Knit 5 rows of garter stitch alternating between white and blue yarn
In the last row, Cast off 9 stitches, knit remaining 6 stitches in white
Row 7. Knit 6, cast on 9 stitches in blue, knit 15 stiches
Row 8-18. Knit 10 rows of garter stitch alternating between white and blue yarn In the last row, Cast off 9 stitches, knit remaining 6 stitches in white
Row 19. Knit 6, cast on 9 stitches in blue, knit 15 stiches
Row 20-25. Knit 5 rows of garter stitch alternating between white and blue yarn
In the last row, Cast off all the stitches in white and finish.

Pajama shirt:

Note: Each row is two knit rows in the same colour making a garter stitch
Row 1. Cast on 12 stitches in blue, knit 15 stitches using blue
Row 2-6. Knit 5 rows of garter stitch alternating between white and blue yarn
In the last row, Knit 8, cast off 3 stitches, knit remaining 1 stitch in white
Row 7. Knit 1, cast on 3 stitches in blue, knit 8 stitches, knit 12
Row 8-20. Knit 12 rows of garter stitch alternating between white and blue yarn In the last row, Knit 8, cast off 3 stitches, knit remaining 1 stitch in white
Row 21. Knit 1, cast on 3 stitches in blue, knit 8 stitches, knit 12
Row 22-27. Knit 5 rows of garter stitch alternating between white and blue yarn
In the last row, Cast off all the stitches in white and finish.

Sleeves:
6 rows of alternating white and blue in garter stitch with 10 stitches. Attach the sleeves to the shirt, hope the picture gives you a better idea as to how its done. I’ve used a piece of stretchy white fabric and sewed it to make crisp collar thereby hiding the crooked edges.

Round 1: Magic circle, 6 sc in it.

Amigurumi palm-sized house key chain

Hello there, let’s just say lazing around in the house might have inspired me to make this palm sized house key chain. The pattern’s a no big fuss and might only take you a day to complete this entire project.

DSC02008 (2)

Crochet Hook : 2.5mm
Yarn : Medium weight off-white, brown, green colored yarn. Ultimately it all depends on how you want to decorate the house.

Note:
If there’s a semi colon in between rounds it means those rounds are sc around without and increase or decrease.

Walls of the house,
Make two of each of these types of walls
Chain 16
Turn, (skipping the first chain, sc 14, chain 1, turn) * 10 rows
Approx. 6 x 5 cms

Chain 13
Turn, (skipping the first chain, sc 11, chain 1, turn) * 10 rows
Approx. 5 x 5 cms
Row 11: chain 1, skip the first sc, sl st in the next, sc 8, sl st, sl st
Row 12: chain 1, skip the first sl st, skip the next sl st, sl st, sc 6, sl st, sl st
Row 13: chain 1, skip the first sl st, skip sl st, sl st, sc 4, sl st, sl st
Row 14: chain 1, skip the first sl st, skip sl st, sl st, sc 2, sl st, sl st

Amigurumi_house_walls

Base of the house,
Chain 16

Row 8: Chain 1, skip the first sl st, skip the next sl st as well, sc, sl st, sl st

Join all the walls of the house using sc so that you have a nice edge for every wall.
For the roof,
Make two of these and sew it to the walls of the house
Chain 16
Turn, (skipping the first chain, sc 14, chain 1, turn) * 8 rows

DSC02006
For the effect of tiles, I’ve used crocodile stitch. Just follow this video, including the stitch count and you should be able to achieve it. Instead of 5 dc at each side of the scallop I’ve used only four since it’s a tiny little project.

Rabbit’s eyes:

I’m not sure if I did full justice to her eyes, I wanted some naive looking ones and my husband says it makes her look like an owl.
Using black coloured yarn,
Round 1: Magic Circle, 6sc into the circle & then pull it close. (6)
Round 2: 2 sl st in each sc around. (12)
Adding the white coloured yarn,
Make 8 sc in a semi circle.

Rabbit’s ears:

Using pink coloured yarn, the ears are worked in single crochet through and I hope it makes sense to just put down the number of stitches in each row if it is 1sc in each sc
Row 1: Chain 7 (6)
Row 2: (6)
Row 3: (6)
Row 4: 2sc(inc),1sc in each sc(4), 2sc(inc). (8)

Row 6: (8)
Row 7: 2sc(inc),1sc in each sc(6), 2sc(inc). (10)

Row 20: 1sc(dec),1sc in each sc(4), 1sc(dec). (6)
Using gray coloured yarn single crochet around the ears. I have a feeeling it would look better with a furry yarn.

Using gray colored yarn and working in rounds,
Round 1: Magic Circle, 6sc into the circle & then pull it close. (6)
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (12)

Round 10: 1sc, dec, 1sc, dec, 1sc, dec, 1sc till the end(6). (12)
Finish, stuff and sew all the parts to its body.

Rabbit’s skirt:

Using pink colored yarn, join in at the region where the top of the dress meets the undergarments of the bunny.
Round 1: sl st around. (40)
Round 2: [sc in the next 4 sl st, 2sc in the next sl st]* 8 times (48).

Crochet lion amigurumi – Pattern (Free)

Hello crochet lion,

Rawr! I’m made this little guy for my adorable little nephew. Not sure if he’d appreciate a plush toy, but I know for sure that if he had a spirit animal lion would be it. So here’s my pattern for this lovely little toy.

Measure:

Height: 21cms.
Crochet hook size: 2.5mm
Yarn : 2 skeins of light brown coloured acrylic yarn
1 skein of dark brown coloured yarn
1 skein of white colored yarn

Pattern notes:

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds without joining at the end of each round. The semi colon between rounds indicates similar pattern is to be followed for the rounds between them. The mane is rooted*.
Rooted:
Follow the pattern under mane for the mane cap. To make the hair like appearance for the mane, cut yarn to strips of desired length to be worked into almost every sc on the mane cap. Fold the yarn in half; make a knot similar to the larks head knot in macramé into the mane cap.

Do the same for both eyes.
Now thread the yarn used for his body to a needle and make parallel stitches(like satin stitch in embroidery), covering quarter of his eyes. These should appear like the eyelid, almost making him a droopy eyed lion.

Tail:

Using tan colored yarn
Magic circle, chain 1, 6sc into the circle. Make several rounds of 6sc till your desired length. Make a 2sc increase for the next two rows and finish off. Sew the tail to the body. Root little strips brown colored yarn to the end of his tail.

Beagle / Dog Amigurumi (Crochet free pattern)

Hello snoop dog!

A friend of mine was keen on having a beagle made for him, and I was more than excited to start a new amigurumi crochet project. When I looked for patterns online, the one I liked had a paid pattern. Um, with all the time I had at hand I thought why not write one myself. That’s how it took about a month for this baby beagle to be formed.

Hook size: 2.5 mm

Color : Brown, White & Black

Beagle Amigurimi ( Crochet Free Pattern)

I’ve decided that this post is long enough on it’s own and  the rest of the pattern needs another post. Free pattern for beagle’s body and arms are on it’s way. Until then, here’s a sneak peak of him munching treats.

I finally got around to doing the beagle’s body, and here it is.
