Amigurumi Crochet Pac-Man Ghosts

This post is also available in: Español

Pac-Man, the absolute classic in video game history would be only half as exciting and popular without the Pac-Man Ghosts Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde.

Because of technical limitations back in the days, is not only Pac-Man but are also the ghosts of a simple appearance what makes them very easy and fast to crochet.

The amigurumi Pac-Man Ghosts are crocheted in one piece and need no sewing whatsoever. Since the ghosts are open on the bottom they work well as little crochet fingerpuppets.

The here depicted Pac-Man Ghosts are crocheted using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook. The finished crochet ghosts have a size of 3 cm (1.18 inch). Use a bigger yarn and/or crochet hook to create larger ghosts.

Crochet the Pac-Man Ghosts (4 pieces)

The Pac-Man Ghosts are crocheted in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches and slip stitches. The head and the body are crocheted in one piece. Crochet 4 ghosts in different color (or as many as you wish).

1 cm diameter wiggly eyes are the perfect fit for the ghosts why i would recommend using them.

Use the check boxes to mark your finished rounds, rows and steps.

  • Crochet the ghost either in Signal Red, Peacock, Sun or Mallow in spiral rounds.
  • Round 1: 6 sc into Magic Ring (6 stitches).
  • Round 2: [1 increase] repeat till end of the round (12 stitches).
  • Round 3: [1 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (18 stitches).
  • Round 4-9: 6 rounds, each round 18 sc (18 stitches).
  • Round 10: [1 slip stitch, 1 increase, 1 slip stitch] repeat 6 times (24 stitches).
  • Round 11: [1 slip stitch, 2 increases, 1 slip stitch] repeat 6 times (36 stitches).
  • Cut the yarn and weave in the leftover thread.

Finishing the Pac-Man Ghosts

Eyes: Finally, just attach the wiggly eyes to the bodies. I used wiggly eyes with a diameter of 1 cm.

Whether you attach the eyes further apart, closer together, higher or lower than shown in the pictures is up to you and each variant creates an individual and personal facial expression.

Even though they are super minimalistic in appearance they are great to look at wherever you leave them.
