Amigurumi Crochet Gingerbread Man Pattern

The Gingerbread Man, the only man who tastes as good as he looks … assuming you bake one. However, if you have a shortage of ingredients and instead of sugar, flour, eggs, honey, etc and just wool in the house, then crochet yourself a Gingerbread Man (he also has a much longer shelf life than the original).

This crochet Gingerbread Man is crocheted with slip stitches, single crochet stitches, half double crochet stitches, double crochet stitches and treble crochet stitches in spiral rounds and is easy to crochet.

The depicted Amigurumi Gingerbread Man has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 5 cm.

Assembling the Gingerbread Man

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, start sewing the legs onto the body. Start sewing the first leg onto the body directly over the edge that was created by the round that was crocheted only into the back loop. Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Details: Embroider the mouth with a White thread 3 stitch rows under the eyes. Embroider the buttons with a Signal Red thread onto the middle of the body.

Glazing: If you want the gingerbread man with the crocheted “glaze”, position it on the head as shown in the picture, take a White thread and sew the glaze firmly to the head.

DONE!
