I have been perusing the internet lately and stumbling across the greatest patterns! While my kids aren’t exactly ideal amigurumi-love ages anymore, they are still amused by the little creations I make, even if they’re not “playing” with them. Will my house one day be full of whimsical little amigurumi dolls? Who knows… I do seem to give them away at a decent pace. But I will share with you some of the delightful little patterns that I have been making and have on my to make list. Enjoy!

Oh, I still just can’t get over this Hugo the Frog amigurumi pattern from My Cro Wonder! I made this pattern a few weeks ago and now I am working on the free raincoat and rain boots pattern (see image below). I’m so impressed with how well-designed this pattern is! The instructions for incorporating the wire into the frog is excellent and it makes a very bendable, functional toy!
Isn’t he adorable? I love him! I am kicking myself for not buying the yellow yarn right now. I’m making the jacket in a bright orange, which is fine, but it’s not this lovely yellow (I love yellow). I went simple and bought all my yarn from one supplier, The Magic Yarns. Great experience, btw, speedy shipping, beautiful yarn, everything I ordered as expected, but they were out of this shade of yellow. I should have just ordered some yellow from another shop like Fiscraftland. I might do that after I’m done this post, just ’cause that yellow is *chef’s kiss*!
Isn’t this cupcake pattern from Mufficorn stunning?! I can’t get over the attention to detail and how realistic looking this pattern is! Such a fun pattern to make for a friend celebrating their birthday, especially if they have allergies or are trying to avoid sweets! I haven’t bought this pattern yet, but I’m super curious about the construction of the frosting! That’s probably one of my favourite things about buying a well-written pattern: learning a new technique, seeing how they did it. A lot of experienced crocheters (myself included) could probably figure out how to make something resembling a cupcake, but this one is next level… it really takes the cake!
Of course, Christmas isn’t too far away now, so it’s definitely a good time to start making Christmas themed amigurumi, like this sweet Joy the Baby Christmas Tree Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Storyland Amis.
How sweet is this little “Miss Cherry” Amigurumi Doll from Happy Crochet Etc? These sweet little dolls make such delightful gifts and they’re so much fun to make! They come together pretty quickly: this pattern has almost no sewing (that’s my favourite kind of amigurumi!).
This sweet Penguin Crochet Pattern from Ami Toy Pattern is a lovely, winter-themed stuffed toy that would make a delightful gift for a child to have a handmade, snuggly lovey from someone who loves them. I love the muted colours that the designer has used for this example, but the beauty of patterns is that you can make the toy in whatever colour suits your fancy!
I can’t even with this adorable bear in Christmas clothes. I love everything about this. How sweet is he?! OK, you should know that this Crochet Pattern for Christmas Clothes from Sveta Crochet Patterns is just for the clothes. The bear pattern is separate, but that also means that if you have a doll or toy that is 27-30 cm (about 12 inches) already, you may be able to make this cute outfit to fit that doll! I just can’t get over all the details in this lovely pattern! This is definitely on my to-make list!
Are you a little bit basic? Or is someone you know a little bit basic? Who doesn’t love a PSL? Well, now you can make that someone a Pumpkin Spice Latte Amigurumi with this crochet pattern from Blue Sparrow Patterns.
Another great Christmas gift idea is adorable little ornaments, like you could make with this collection of Santa, Elf, Reindeer, and Christmas cake ornaments crochet patterns from RNata. Just pop an ornament hanger on these little round characters and you have a most delightful tree ornament to give as a gift or decorate your tree with whimsical little Christmas characters!
This crochet cactus hand amigurumi pattern from FayniToys is awesome! I loved making mine. I did make the rude one in front, but it does just feel like it’s been that kind of year, amirite? She included excellent instructions to make a really well-made little cactus. I’m going to start using mine as a pin cushion. If I were to do one thing differently, it would be to follow her (optional) instructions to glue the structural plastic to the soil part of the toy. I think that would have made it better.
Finally, there’s this sweet little kitty cat amigurumi pattern from Little Muggles. This pattern is a FREE PATTERN available on her website. I know I don’t post a lot of free patterns, because it can be hard to know if they are good patterns. That doesn’t mean that every paid pattern is amazing, but there’s a higher standard for a paid pattern. Little Muggles has her own shop where she also sells paid patterns, so I trust that her free patterns are up to snuff. Another big reason I like to promote paid patterns is that it takes a long time to create and write up a good pattern; designers deserve to be paid for their work! Making a free pattern can be good for a designer when you stay on their website for a while, that helps their ad revenue, but I also love having a printable pattern that I can write on and take with me and not drain my phone battery using. Anyway, if you’re looking for a free pattern, check out this cute little cat amigurumi pattern.
I hope you enjoyed today’s round up of amigurumi patterns that I think you will love! Pin it to save it for later and share with your friends!
