Mummy Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Mummy Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Get ready for Halloween with this free adorable little mummy 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.

I love Halloween. It is my second favourite holiday, after Christmas. I love seeing all the houses dressed up in their Halloween finery, the neighbourhood kids in their fancy-dress costumes going from house to house shouting “trick-or-treat”, sitting down with my girls and watching a family-friendly spooky film (definitely not the scary-spooky kind of film, I’m far too easily scared), and let’s not forget all of the chocolate and sweets.

So, with Halloween just around the corner, it would be wrong to celebrate the holiday without a family-friendly spooky amigurumi or two to join in the festivities with you. So, what could I do for Halloween that was quick and easy to make, and would add some cuteness to the day? I asked my girls what they would like to see, and wow, all the ideas they came up with. I definitely have enough ideas to last me the next few Halloweens.

As you may be able to tell, with my recent release of the cuddle robot blanket, cushion and toy, I have a special spot in my heart for robots. More specifically, I love the shape and character of Cuddle Robot, so much that I’m not finished with the design of him just yet. So I combined the Cuddle Robot shape with my girls’ Halloween list to come up with this little mummy.

Mummy Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Below is my free mummy 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 Double Knit in Cream 50g (161 yards/148 metres)
  • 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 are worked in rows, turning after each row.
  • 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.

Assembly

2. Sew all the individual cubes together (if this is your first time assembling a cube from two rectangles then check out the How to Assemble a Crochet Amigurumi Cube tutorial).

3. Once all 6 cubes are complete, sew the robot together.

4. Wrap the bandages around each cube and then sew in place. Wrap each arm/leg bandage three times around each arm/leg and stitch in place.Then wrap the head bandage around the head five times and stitch in place.  Finally, wrap the body bandage around the upper body three times and stitch in place.
