Free pattern! Human Amigurumi 2

Alright, here's the pattern for the men. Go to my flickr page for a lot of reference pictures for the colors you should use.

The patterns for the clothes are accessories for Lord of the Rings characters are available on my etsy page.

***NOTE-This pattern can also be used for any human character, as long as they are made out of Sugar 'n Cream yarn (or any comparably sized yarn)***


Aragorn and Boromir pattern:
This pattern uses an F hook and worsted weight for the bottom color and Sugar 'n Cream yarn for the top color. If you want to use worsted weight for the top too, please see the other human pattern.


BC: bottom color (the "pants")
TC: top color (the "shirt")
AC: arm color (the arms)
SC: skin color (for any skin parts)

BODY:
With BC, work 2 ch

Row 1: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook
Row 2: (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st)
Row 3: (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) four times, 2 sc in next st
Row 4: (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) seven times
You should have around 20 stitches by now
Row 5 even
Row 6: (sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st) until end of row
Row 7: (sc in next 4 st, 2 sc in next st) until end of row
Row 8: even
Row 9: (sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in next st) until end of row

Row 10-14: even
Row 15: (sc in next 7 st, sc2tog) until end of row
Row 16: (sc in next 6 st, sc2tog) until end of row
Row 17: (sc in next 5 st, sc2tog) until end of row
Row 18: even
Row 19: (sc in next 4 st, sc2tog) until end of row
Row 20: (sc in next 3 st, sc2tog) until end of row
You should have about 17 stitches by now

Now is a good time to put in the arms


ARMS: Make two
With SC, ch 2

Row 1: 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook
Row 2: (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) twice
Row 3: even
Row 4: even
Change to AC
Row 5: even
Row 6: even
Row 7: even
Row 8: even, BO, leave a long yarn tail to attach arm to body

Attach these to the body and pick up the stitch on the stitch holder with the skin color to finish the head.

HEAD: With SC
Row 21: (sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st) until end of row
Row 22: (sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st) until end of row
Row 23: (sc in next 4 st, 2 sc in next st) until end of row

If you have safety eyes, now would be a good time to put them in--try to place them around row 24
Row 29: (sc in next 3 st, sc2tog) until end of row
Row 30: (sc in next 2 st, sc2tog) until end of row
Now is when you want to stuff the whole body, and even put a weight down at the bottom if you are so inclined. Make sure you stuff the body very tightly.
Row 31: (sc in next 1 st, sc2tog) until end of row or until the head is completely closed up

Weave in all ends.

Thanks for offering up your patterns, they are fabulous. I am so inspired and have decided to do the cast of Battlestar Gallactica in amigurumi!

This is AMAZING!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I'm a big fan of Lord of the Rings and I love your Gandalf. I'll make one for myself! Oh, wait... I'll make one for my friend too. She loves LotR.

I also like the link you posted to Ctulhu Crochet. Never thought I'd find the Great Ctulhu in amigurumi. Looks so cute!!!

Please, don't delete this patterns?

How cute!
But on the patterns you posted, where are the pictures to go with them? Or at least could you put a link click so we can see what we may be making?

YOu are very talented with crochet! :o)

I'm curious, what do you mean by (sc2tog)?
specifically the TOG part. I'm trying to make the Han Solo and Leia as cake toppers for my sister's wedding, and that's the only part of the patter I don't understand.

thanks.

Geek Central Station said...

oh, it just means single crochet two stitches together. It's really easy, you just put two stitches on your hook, yarn over, pull through one, yarn over again and pull through all three.

Plus, how adorable that you're making cake toppers! Maybe you could post a picture when you're done? I bet they're going to be adorable. That's so cute.

Shiko said...

What do you mean by, "even"?
Do you mean do the same as the last row, or do one sc per stitch?

Geek Central Station said...

Shiko, it just means to do one sc in each stitch, no increasing or decreasing.

Shiko said...

Thanks~!
I just started crocheting like a week ago.
XD

Amber said...

OMG, thank you! I was getting into doing felt plushies of various characters but was having a hard time figuring out how to make them more 3D. Now I can just crochet the body and add felt clothing and accessories. Man, I'll be making these things for a while...

Vikki said...

What size eyes do you use? I love them, they are just the perfect size!

Geek Central Station said...

I use 10mm eyes. They are kind of hard to find, but Hobby Lobby usually has them.

Vikki said...

thanks for the fast response!

Samantha said...

I was wondering what pattern you use to do Altair? I want to make one for my husband. Thanks so much! (:

Zelda said...

Can you use sugar and cream yarn for the bottom part too??

Geek Central Station said...

Zelda: Yep! Just pay attention to your gauge. Honestly, I would just use whatever you can find that gives you the best color. You can always adjust for gauge later.

Zelda said...

Hey what color hair do each of the characters have? I'm making an aragorn and gandalf and don't know which embroidery thread to use!

Geek Central Station said...

Zelda: I use DMC embroidery floss. For Aragorn I would use either 3031 or 838. They're both dark brownish colors. For Gandalf I use 648.
