Aipom Amigurumi Free Pattern

Hello amigurumi lovers and beautiful visitors, I wanted to share the free amigurumi patterns for you here. In my article I will share 1 pattern and how to make it for you. At the end of my article, I will share amigurumi patterns that can generate ideas for you.

Materials :
2mm hook
Stylecraft Special DK in Plum and Stone
Polyester toy filling
Wire or pipe cleaners – I’ve used 1.2mm jewellery wire
Pins to place pieces before sewing together
Darning needle
Stitch markers (I prefer using scrap yarn as “stitch markers”)
Fibres in BlackWhite and Blue for needle felting*
Needle felting tool
Please note that I have used needle felting to create Aipom’s eyes and smile. Needle felting is still quite new to me so I will not be including instructions on how to do this. You may want to look into alternative ways of creating the eyes, mouth, teeth and creating the ears & belly patches.

Size
Aipom is approximately 12cm tall.
Weight: 50 grams (this includes all materials used to make Aipom)

Tıtches & Abbrevıatıons – Uk Englısh
ch chain
dc double crochet
st/sts stitch/es
inc dc 2 in one st
dec decrease; insert hook in the front loop of the next two sts, yarn over, pull through both loops, y.o. and pull through remaining two loops –> one dc placed into two sts
y.o. yarn over

Assembly
Assemble in the same order the pattern is written. I would recommend using a photo of Aipom as reference for best possible outcome. Pin all the pieces in place before sewing to make sure it looks right.

I’ve fluffed up some Stone yarn and used it to needle felt the patches on each of Aipom’s ears.

Starting with Stone ch 3 – we will be working around the chains to make an oval shape.
Round 1: (dc, inc) x 2 (6)
R2: (inc x 2, dc) x 2 (10)
R3: dc 10
R4: (dec, dc 3) x 2 (8)
R5: dc 8
R6: dc 1, turn
R7: (Row): ch1, dc 4 (turn)
R8: ch1, dc 4, – we are now working in rounds again so keep going without turning: – dec in side of row and next dc from previous round, dc 2, dec in next dc and side of next row (8)
R9: dc 4, change colour to Plum, the next part will count as a new round:
R10: all in the back loops, dc 8 (8)
R11: (dc 2, dec) x 2 (6)
R12-14: dc 6
Fasten off and leave a long end to sew the pieces onto body. I used a wire to make Aipom’s legs a bit sturdier. You can follow the same instructions as I used for Jigglypuff here.

Arms
Yarn: Plum
Make 2
Round 1: dc 4 in Magic Ring (4)
R2: (inc, dc) x 2 (6)
R3: dc 6
R4: inc x 2, dc 4 (8)

Tail
Yarn: Stone Plum
The tail is comprised of several pieces. Starting with Stone:
Round 1: dc 5 in Magic Ring (5)
R2: inc in all sts around (10)
R3: (dc, inc) x 5 (15)
R4: dc 15
R5: (dc 2, inc) x 5 (20)
R6: dc 20
R7: (dc 2, dec) x 5 (15)
R8: dc 15
Stuff the ball
R9: (dc, dec) x 5 (10)
Change colour to Plum
R10: dec x 5 (5)
R11-40: dc 5
Before fastening off assess whether you want the tail to be longer or shorter. Once long enough, fasten off and leave long end for sewing onto body. I’ve used wire to make the tail sturdier and bendable. You can use the same instructions I used when adding a pipecleaner to Marill’s tail here.
We now need to make 3 fingers to attach to the ball of the tail:
Using with Stone
Round 1: dc 4 in Magic Ring (4)
R2: inc in all sts around (8)
R3-4: dc 8
R5: dec x 4 (4)
R6-7: dc 4
Fasten off and leave long end for sewing.

Finished!
