It is suitable both as a toy for a child or as a part of your Halloween decoration.

Hello Halloween!

Autumn has snuck up on me this year and surprised me. There’s the well known saying that time flies when you’re having fun. I want to rewrite it and say that time flies when you have children, but then I realise I’ve said the pretty much the same thing just using different words.

When I think about it, all the signs of Autumn were right in front of me. I was helping my girls get ready for the start of a new school year, I was relieved that the heat of summer was cooling down, and there was the tingle of excitement that it would soon be ok again to use the C-word in public (yes, you guessed it- Christmas!). So, Autumn was right in front of me but I didn’t notice as it all felt too soon, the year had only just started, I’m not ready for it to end.

What did cheer me up was the realisation that Halloween was around the corner and I better get a move on if I want to make my girls any Halloween toys. And so we had a family meeting and I asked them what I can make them for Halloween. I forget that children are FULL of amazing ideas. Well, the ideas came tumbling out and I grabbed pen and paper to capture them all because there is no way I’m going to remember or have time to make them all. Note to self: always ask the children for ideas, you will always be surprised and grateful.

The first toy my eldest asked for was a large version of the Halloween Mummy I released last year. As you might remember from my last post Large Ballerina Free Crochet Pattern, my eldest has been on the quest for toys that give the perfect hug, and so I upsized the cute, little Small Ballerina Free Crochet Pattern at her request. When asked why she wants a larger version of the Halloween Mummy her reason was, “it looks like it’ll make a good pillow hug”.

I won’t spoil the surprise by letting you know what my youngest asked for. That is still in the making and while I will definitely have the toy ready for my youngest by Halloween, now it is a race between me and time itself to see if I get the pattern ready in time to share it with you all before Halloween.

Large Mummy is part of my Cubigurumi range, a series of cute, cube-tastic toys to delight, inspire and entertain the special child in your life . You can find the whole range of huggable, quirky characters on the My Crochet Wish website, such as this sweet, little Halloween Frankenstein . They are just so quick and easy-to-make. Both of my children love playing their cube-based games on their tablets, and are loving that they have cube shaped toys as well!

Cubigurumi: loads of cube-shaped love!

The Cubigurumi range was designed for the busy crafter, who struggles to make time for crochet in their busy week. Each design is simple to make, but still cute in appearance. You make fast progress in small blocks of time and end up with a gift-worthy finished creation.

Each Cubigurumi starts life as a series of simple, flat rectangles, before they are then sewn together to create the individual cube body parts. This makes each part quick and straightforward to work on, without having to worry about shaping the doll as you crochet. Here, the individual cubes are sewn together before wrapped in Mummy ‘bandages’ to create a spookily cute, cherished friend that any child would love to hug.

It is an ideal project for beginner crocheters, who have practiced the basics and are ready for their next creation.

The free crochet pattern for the Halloween Mummy doll is shared, below. However, this pattern is also available as a Premium Pattern!

Premium Patterns are beautifully formatted, ad-free, printable PDF files; they also contain features that are not available in the free pattern version, such as:

  • Extra photos and guidance to help you with the little details.
  • Instructions and photos for left-handed and right-handed people, where needed, so there is no need to adapt the pattern before you start.
  • Relevant step-by-step photo tutorials for the skills you need to complete the project, making it easy every step of the way. This mummy pattern includes the step-by-step photo tutorial on how to sew together a My Crochet Wish amigurumi cube.
  • Instructions using US and UK crochet terms, so you can enjoy the pattern no matter which crochet language you use.

Large Mummy Free Crochet Pattern

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 9 inches high (23 cm). Here is what you will need:

Disclaimer: there is sewing involved in this project. In my experience, there are three types of people in the crochet community; those that hate sewing and actively avoid it, those that are indifferent and will sew if the pattern calls for it, and those that love sewing and do it as separate craft. If you are in the first group and hate sewing with a passion, then my Cubigurumi patterns probably aren’t for you.

Materials

  • Any DK or light weight yarn (other yarn types or thickness can be used – this will result in a different size). I used Stylecraft Special DK in Cream 120g (399 yards/354 metres)
  • Polyester stuffing
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Two safety eyes 12mm in diameter
  • Sewing pins (optional)

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 are worked in rows, turning after each row.
  • Unless specified, all stitches should be worked through both loops on the top of the stitch.
  • Keep your stitches tight to produce a solid looking fabric. You don’t want gaps between your stitches.
  • The bobble stitch is worked on the ‘wrong’ side of the fabric, making the bobble ‘pop’ out on the opposite side of the fabric (unless otherwise specified).
  • Stuff carefully 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.

Large Mummy Assembly

1. Attach the safety eyes to HEAD – PART A, on the same side as the nose. Each eye is placed 5 rows up from the bottom edge and 5 stitches in from the side. There are 6 stitches between the eyes.

2. Sew all the individual cubes together (How to Assemble a Crochet Amigurumi Cube Tutorial).

3. Once all 6 cubes are complete, sew the amigurumi together. Pay careful attention to how the cubes are sewn to each other. The crochet rows of the head and the body should be in the same direction, so they match. The crochet rows of the two arms should also be in the same direction as each other, so they match, and the crochet rows of the two legs should also be in the same direction as each other.

4. Wrap the bandages around each body cube and pin in place ready for sewing. Wrap each arm/leg bandage three or four times around each arm/leg. Then wrap the head bandage around the head five or six times.  Finally, wrap the body bandage around the upper body seven or eight times. (Hint: Tuck each end of the bandage under another section of bandage so you cannot see the end. Also, crossing the bandage over a different section of bandage once or twice when wrapping also looks good.) Make sure that the bandage does not get twisted when wrapping. Sew the bandages securely in place.
