10 Super Simple Patterns for the Cutest Amigurumi Friends

Actions

When it comes to amigurumi , the cuter the better — especially when you can stitch up those cute friends using just basic stitches. Check out our favorite easy amigurumi patterns that pack an adorable punch.

1. Mr. Rolly

Part of keeping things simple is limiting the number of pieces you need to crochet. If you’re just starting out, stitching up a friend with no apendages (like Mr. Rolly, here), will help you focus on learning the basics.

2. Crochet Owls

Clever color changes make these all-in-one owls a breeze to stitch. Fair-warning, these owls are addictive to make — you may just find yourself with a whole parliment of owls (yeah, we looked it up) on your hands.

3. Hello, Bluebird


This straight-forward bluebird is made up of a basic egg shape for the head and body. Add on wings and beak, and this bluebird will be on your shoulder before you can say “zip-a-dee-do-da.”

4. Barrel Cactus

We’re big fans of plants we can’t kill. And when they're easy to stitch, all the better. The cactus itself is worked flat, with a simple, one-row repeat. Add in a flower for a little flair.

5. Mr. Toothy

You can stitch up your own army of adorable monsters, starting with this lovable beast. His head and body are all one piece, and you’ll even join his legs seamlessly, for a sturdier stance.

6. Rainbow Cake

Every day is the right day for rainbow cake! Colorful stripes and dollops of faux icing make this the easiest layer cake you've ever made. Put down your fork, pick up your hook and dig in!

7. Snake Plant

This friendly little fella is sure to add a needed pop of green to any room. Stitch your own pot, then sew on the leaves. Easy!

If you dream of being a plant lady but weren't blessed with a green thumb, say hello to your new BFF: the amigurumi snake plant. This friendly little fella doesn't care what color your thumbs are, as long as they can hold a crochet hook.

8. Bee Breezey

If you’re looking for some buzz-worthy amigurumi, this is it. Start with a larger hook and yarn to make things easier, or go tiny for extra cuteness.

9. Fine, Feathered Friend

This little duckling uses simple stitches and a bit of seaming to make the magic happen. You’ll have a few more pieces to make than with simpler projects, and a little more joining to do, but trust us — she’s worth it.

Is there anything more adorable than a crocheted duckling? From the tuft of hair all the way down to his little duck toes, each stitch is cuter than the last. And If you're new to amigurumi, this little guy is a great beginner project: it comes together using simple stitches and just a bit of seaming for some festive Easter magic.

10. Cutest Kitty

If you're looking to move beyond super simple, this adorable kitty is a good one to try. There are a number of different pieces to make and join, but they're all worked in the round, and start with a magic ring. Take it one stitch at a time, and it will be purrrfect.
