Frankenstein Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Frankenstein Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Celebrate Halloween in style with this free spookily cute little Frankenstein amigurumi crochet pattern. It is a quick and easy-to-make project and is ideal if you are looking to add some Halloween cuteness to your day.

As I’ve mentioned before, I love Halloween. After Christmas, it is my second favourite holiday. I love the community spirit as I see all my neighbours decorating their houses with spooky scenes and welcoming children to their front door to admire their outfits and hand out sweets. I also love to crochet, so it was an easy decision to crochet something for Halloween, however what to make?

I recently posted a free pattern for a little mummy amigurumi that you could make in time for Halloween. However, he looked so lonely by himself on the shelf between the pumpkin and fake spider web, that I just had to make him a companion. So I come up with the pattern for this little Frankenstein amigurumi crochet pattern, which I am happy to share with you today. Little Mummy looks much happier now he has someone to hold his hand if it gets too scary.

Frankenstein Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Below is my free Frankenstein amigurumi crochet pattern just for you. Or you can purchase your very own ad-free, printer-friendly version of the pattern through my Etsy or Ravelry store. The purchased pattern comes with US and UK instructions and contains the directions to make both the mummy and Frankenstein.

This is an easy pattern suitable for those that have practised the basics of crochet and are ready for their next project. There is no set gauge for this pattern, however the finished size should be approximately 5 inches high (13cm). Here is what you will need:

Materials

  • You can use any DK or light weight yarn (other yarn thickness can be used – this will result in a larger size). I used the following acrylic yarn. You don’t need much.
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Grass Green 50g (161 yards/148 metres) – yarn A
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Black 50g (161 yards/148 metres) – yarn B
    • Stylecraft Special DK in Silver 10g (32 yards/30 metres) – yarn C
  • Polyester stuffing
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Two safety eyes 9mm in diameter

Notes

  • Are you new to crochet? Here is a handy post explaining all the abbreviations.
  • I have used US crochet stitch terms for this post. Check out this US to UK stitch conversion guide if you prefer to work in UK stitches.
  • All pieces, apart from the neck bolts, are worked in rows, turning after each row.
  • The neck bolts are worked in continuous (spiral) rounds with right side facing at all times.
  • To change colour, work the last stitch of old colour to the last yarn over. Yarn over with the new colour and draw through all loops on hook to complete the stitch. Continue with the new colour. Fasten off the non-working yarn and weave the end in. Do not carry the non-working yarn.
  • Keep your stitches tight to produce a solid looking fabric. You don’t want gaps between your stitches.
  • Carefully stuff to maintain the square shape of the amigurumi toy. You can stuff for a more firmer cuddle, however the cubes will start to take a more rounded shape.
  • When you add the stuffing, you do not want to overstuff to the point that the stuffing is visible.
