Amigurumi Gremlin Crochet Pattern

Gremlins, another example of why eating late at night can be unhealthy. Not only can it lead to weight gain but also to a sudden metamorphosis from a small fluffy animal to a slimy, vicious creature that has nothing else in mind but to cause chaos and riots.

But if you want to add chaos, restlessness and malicious laughter to your life, you now have the chance to crochet your own little Gremlin.

This crochet Gremlin is crocheted only with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds and is easy to crochet.

The depicted Amigurumi Gremlin has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 4.5 cm.

Assembling

Claws: To attach the claws you can choose between 2 variations. In the 1st variation, the claws are attached BEFORE the legs and arms are sewn on. To do this, pull both threads of the claw through the leg or arm using a tapestry needle. For the leg, place 3 claws next to each other directly behind the stitch edge on the leg. For the arms, place 3 claws next to each other on each arm.

Variation 2 only applies to the legs, the claws for the arms are attached as described in Variant 1. Variation 2 is done AFTER you have sewn the legs onto the body. To do this, wrap a white thread 3 to 4 times around a loop on the leg that was created when crocheting into the back loop. Create 3 claws next to each other on both feet. Hide the remaining thread inside the leg.

Legs: Sew 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.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a Pine thread. Embroider the nose centered under the eyes. To do this, pull the thread horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping one stitch. Repeat until a thick nose forms.

Ears: Sew the ears to the right and left side of the head. Start 4 to 5 stitch rows from the top of the head. The straight side of the ear should be on top and the rounded side on the bottom.

Eyebrows: Sew on the eyebrows directly above the eyes. To do this, pull the threads of both ends of the eyebrows through the head with a tapestry needle. Cut the threads and hide them in the head of the Gremlin.

DONE!
