Crochet Amigurumi Lego Man - FREE Pattern

I recently made a little Crochet Pal for my Goddaughter, she has a brother and sister so I wanted to make them one too.  But would a boy of 9 like a Crochet Pal??? Maybe he would if it was a Lego Crochet pal! So I set about designing a pattern for a cute little Lego Man.

He is not meant to be an exact representation obviously, but a Lego Man in an Amigurumi Crochet Pal style.




So here's the pattern...
I used Stylecraft Special DK and a 3.5 mm hook.  This pattern is worked in a continuous spiral and uses UK terms.
Head
Use bright yellow yarn.
  1. Ch 3, join with a ss to form a ring
  2. Work 5 dc into your ring, don't join (5)
  3. Work 2 dc into each st (10)
  4. *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st* repeat x4 (15)
  5. *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 2 stitches* repeat x4 (20)
  6. *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 3 sts* repeat x4 (25)

Assembly

  1. Stuff the head and decide where you want the eyes to be.  I have used safety eyes but they should not be used for young children.  I would highly recommend embroidering eyes if your Lego man is for a small child.  My lego Man is for a 9 year old so safety eyes are fine.
  2. Make a little mark onto your head where to place the eyes, and mouth or push safety eyes through.  I have positioned mine in the middle of the head and with 5 sts in between each eye.
  3. I now pull the stuffing out of the head to embroider on the facial features.
  4. Embroider on your mouth, I did a row of back stitch using cotton yarn and an embroidery needle.  I then went back over my stitches again to make them more bold. 
  5. Fully stuff the head now.
  6. Attach the body and head together and sew, lining up corresponding stitches on each part and using small stitches.  leave a small gap un sewn, check your stuffing and add a little more if needed, if head perhaps feels a bit floppy on neck.
  7. Position the head nobbly bit where you want it on the head, ensure that it is lightly stuffed, you don't want it over stuffed or it might make a dome shape! Sew onto the top of the head using the same yellow yarn and make small stitches picking up each corresponding stitch on the two parts all the way round.
  8. Position your arms, pin them in place before sewing to check they are even on each side and do the same for the legs.
  9. Ensure your ends are tucked in by pushing your needle up through your lego man and out to the other side.  Then pull the yarn taught and cut off, when you shape your toy back the end will disappear inside.
I hope you have enjoyed this pattern. I would love to see your Lego man if you make one, please tweet or instagram me the pics! @Jo_TPHPBlog

  1. Did you find that the DC is more full of spaces than the SC is. I have really had a hard time to figure the head out starting in a cone shape instead of round.

    1. Hi Penny. Could it be that you are working in US crochet terms? This is written in U.K. Terms. Horribly confusing why it has to be different! But try changing the pattern to single crochet (US) instead and should work. Let me know if not... x
