Lilo and Stitch Amigurumi Pattern
Lilo and Stitch Amigurumi Crochet Pattern
Blue is a colour I generally don’t gravitate towards when I crochet, so for a bit I was really stumped on which blue character I should make. I debated making some sort of marine animal, but I really just wasn’t feeling it when I was brainstorming.
And then, I remembered that back in middle school, my friends and I loved the movie Lilo & Stitch. So much so that we took to calling each other “ohana”. And since nostalgia has hit me hard, I’ve decided to create three Lilo & Stitch amigurumi projects!
The first one is a free amigurumi pattern for the Stitch keychain, which you can find here. And this weekend, I’ll be posting another free pattern of a character from Lilo & Stitch on the blog, so stay tuned!
The finished toy measures to be about 7 inches tall. The head is slightly larger than the one from the keychain, so the pattern for the head is slightly different.
I’m also not a fan of cutting felt out to create details unless it’s absolutely necessary when it comes to amigurumi; this means that everything in this pattern is crocheted. Personally speaking, I just don’t want to have an extensive felt stash on top of my already insane yarn stash.
Here are the materials you will need to create this toy:
Royal Blue, Baby Blue, Navy, Lavender, Black, and White Yarn (sport weight)
3mm Crochet Hook
Polyfill or Cotton for stuffing
The terminology used in this pattern are as follows:
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet
inc: two single crochets in one stitch
dec: invisible decrease, single crochet two stitches together through the front loops only
sl st: slip stitch
BLO: crochet only in the back loops (loop away from you) of each stitch
(…) x # : repeat anything in the parenthesis however many times the number indicates
[#]: total number of stitches for that row
#sc: one sc in the following # stitches
dc2: dc twice in the next stitch
RB: Royal Blue yarn
BB: Baby Blue yarn
2dc puff: *YO, insert hook into st, YO, draw back through the st, YO, draw through 2 loops on hook* Repeat from * to * one more time in the same st. YO, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
Basic colour changing techniques are required, and if you don’t know how to do that, here’s a pretty great video tutorial by Planet June.
The pattern is 9 pages long with photos to show you what each part should look like. There are also photos demonstrating some parts of the assembly.
