Free Yoshi Amigurumi Crochet Pattern


 For more diy projects please follow me on Instagram ---> sarohsaroh

So as my 10 week old´s name is Joshua I thought Yoshi would be a suitable mascot for his stroller. (We call him Joshi :))
This is my first crochet pattern, I really hope the steps are easy to follow. I think it is not really beginner level. Please excuse language mistakes, you are welcome to tell me if there are any mistakes in my pattern or if some steps are not clear.
Sorry to German readers, I have learned how to crochet with English videos and Patterns, I do not know the German expressions and according to blogger I have a lot of English speaking readers.
This pattern was created by sarohsdoityourselfblog for private use only, do not sell this pattern. The finished Amigurumi may not be sold. 
Keep away from cats, I know what I´m talking about ;)



What you need:
•    100 – 150 g lime green yarn
•    50 g white yarn
•    yellow, red and brown yarn
•    3,5 mm hook
•    needle for sewing parts
•    black and white felt for eyes (optional)
•    fibre fill or old yarn to stuff

sc= single crochet, dc= double crochet, hdc = half double crochet,  ch 1 = Chain one, slst= slip stitch, st = stitch, lp = loop, inc = increase, dec= decrease
*…* = repeat part between until end


I did the main part without sewing (eyes, head, belly, tail). I´ll restart counting with every part to make counting easier.
(The numbers are just for orientation, it just has to be approximately this amount of stitches)
Only skip joining stches when you are told to do so.


Body (starting with eyes):

Create two parts that will be crocheted together.
2-times:
Magic circle, 6sc, slst to join round
R1: Ch1,*sc, inc in every 2nd st* slst to join (9)
R2: Ch1, *2sc,inc,2sc* slst to join (12)
R3: Ch1, 1sc in every st, slst to join (12)

Sew together through 4 stitches of each.
Start between sewn-together parts, picking up yarn through 1 lp, Ch1
(you can either cut and sew each time or do slpstches instead of sewing, without cutting the yarn and just continue with it)
R1 1sc in each stitch, using sewn middles as one stitch (18)
(I hope everyone understands what I mean, if you don´t get it just do 1sc in each, the result won´t be much different)
R2:Ch1, 1sc in each st, slst to join (18)
R3: Ch 1, ca. 4 sc, 1 inc, 8sc, inc, 4sc, sl st to join (20)
(if you have started in another spot: increases have to be on the sides)
R4: *sc,inc* slst to join (30)
R5-R7: Ch1, 1sc in each st, slst to join (30)
R8: Ch1, *sc,dec*, slst to join (20)
R9: Ch1, *sc,dec* slst to join (14)
R10: Ch1, *sc,sc,dec*, slst to join (12)
(Don´t cut yarn, just carry on with body)






Body:

R1: Ch1, inc each st, sl st to join (24)
R2: Ch1, 1sc in each st, sl st to join (24)
R3: Ch1, *sc,sc,inc*, sl st to join (32)
R4-R6: Ch1, 1sc in each stch, slst to join (32)
This time you´ll have to cut the yarn and weave in the ends. Stuff this part with fibre fill, yarn…, I will put the yellow inside of a Kinder egg filled with a little rice in the belly to make it a rattle for my son.)
R7: Now we´ll create a hole to attach the tail later. Decide which side should be Yoshis back and find it´s middle. Skip 2 middle stches and pick up yarn.
Ch1, 1sc in each, turn (30) (there should be a gap of 2 stches in the middle)
R8: Ch1, 1dec first two stches, *1sc in each* , 1dec in last 2 stches, turn (28)
R9: Ch1, 1dec first two stches, *1sc in each* , 1dec in last 2 stches, turn (26)
R10: Ch1, inc in first st, *sc,sc,dec*, inc in last st., turn (20)
R11: Ch1, inc in first st, *sc,sc,dec*, inc in last st., turn (16)
R12: Ch1, inc in first st, *sc,sc,dec*, inc in last st., slst to join with other side (16)
(you should now have a hole in the back and be able to crochet in rounds again)
R13: Ch1, *sc,dec*, sl st to join (11)
R14: pick up 1 lp through every stch, pull yarn through all, cut yarn and weave in ends (so much for not-much weaving huh)

Tail:

Now you need to hold Yoshi upright and find the upper middle of the hole.(basically the upper side of the tail) I didn`t count doing this part.
R1: Pick up yarn through middle stch,
Ch 1, 1sc in each stch, slst to join
R2: Ch1, skip joining stch, 1sc in each stch, slst to join
R3: Ch1, 1sc in each st to middle, 1sc  each st, 1 dec in middle, 1sc each till end of round, slst to join
R4: Ch1, *1sc in each st*, 1 dec at end of round, sl st to join
R5: Ch1, 1sc in each st to middle, 1inc in middle, 1sc in each st to end, 1 dec at end
R6: Ch1, 1sc in each st to middle, 1inc in middle, 1sc in each st to end, 1 dec at end
R7: Ch1, 1sc in each st to middle, 1inc in middle, 1sc in each st to end, 1 dec at end
R8: Ch1, 1sc in each st to middle, 1inc in middle, 1sc in each st to end, 1 dec at end
R9: Ch1, 1sc in each st to middle, 1inc in middle, 1sc in each st to end, 1 dec at end
R10: Ch1; *dec every st.*, sl st to join
R11: pick up one loop through every st. pull yarn through all, cut yarn and weave in ends.
Now the main part is finished.

Nose:
Start with Magic Circle, 6 sc, slst to join (6)
R1: Ch1, *inc every st*, sl st to join (12)
R2: Ch1, *inc 2nd st*, slst to join (16)

R4: Ch1, *inc 4th st.*, slst to join (24)
R5-9 Ch 1, *1sc in each st*, slst to join (24)
R10-11: Ch 1 *dec 4th st* slst to join

R4: 3sc in Ch3 for thumb, then just continue with round
*1sc in each st*, 3sc on other side of chain in thumb. (10 in round, 6 in thumb)
R5: now “sew” the thumb rows together by slip stitching through the opposite stchs.

Saddle:

Using red yarn (I did it with brown yarn as I didn´t have red at home)

R1: Ch1, *inc every st*, sl st to join (12)
R2: Ch1, *inc every st*, slst to join (24)
R3: Ch1, *1sc in each st.*, slst to join (24)
break yarn and weave in ends
R4: Switch to white
Ch1 in any loop, 2 hdc in each st, slst to join
Use ends to attach to body.

Strange things on back of head:
Using red yarn

Divide head in two parts and search middles of these parts.
Pick up yarn in upper middle and do one dc
count two rows to the lower side of middle and slst. through one st
Do 5 dc through middle st
count two rows to upper side and slst. through one st.
Break yarn and weave in ends. Repeat on lower side of head.

Eyes:
I tried to stitch the eyes on felt and sewed them on the head but I´m not really content with the outcome. You can also just cut out the parts from felt and sew them to the head.








I hope you liked my pattern :)

  1. Thanks so much for the pattern! :)
    But i have a doubt. In the body, R12, how can i get 16 st. again? I don't understand that part. Please, could you explain to me how to get it? Thanks again! :3

  2. I´m afraid that was a counting mistake - Sorry! I Am not a "counter" when crocheting, if you stick to the pattern it will turn out right, as the stitch number of the next part depends on your number of rows here. (I counted again, it must be 15 as you have 2 inc and 3 dec). The last row of the body is crocheted together with one Slst, no matter how many stitches are left :)
