• Before we get started…
This Frankenstein is made with Yarnart Jeans, which isn’t available in the US but can be purchased from Etsy sellers for an affordable cost. The yarn I used is small (2 weight) and paired with a small hook (2mm) to give the amigurumi a clean look. I also used the “yarn under” method to get “x” stitches – I include a tutorial of this at the end of this post.

You can make this pattern in regular 4/Medium weight yarn with a 4mm hook, however, your amigurumi will come out much larger.

• How it’s made
We will start by making the legs. After they are both made, we will connect them together. The legs will then lead into the body and head. So the legs, body, and head are all made in one continuous piece. After this, we will make his pants, jacket, arms, stitches, hair, and bolts!

Let’s get started!

We will start by making the legs, then we will connect them together. The legs will then form up into the body, then the head. Let’s get started! Note: The pictures use green yarn, as using black yarn was too dark to see. Please use black yarn for this section!

Finish off the first pant leg and weave in ends.

Jacket:

In Purple

Row 1: Ch 50. Dc in the 3rd Ch from the hook. Dc in the next 47 st (48)
Row 2-5: Turn. Dc in the next 47 st (48)
Row 6: Turn. Repeat *Dec, Dc in the next 4 st* 8 times (40)
Row 7: Turn. Repeat *Dec, Dc in the next 3 st* 8 times (32)
In the next round we will make the arm holes for the jacket. We will do this by making a chain, then skipping some stitches, and crocheting in the following stitches. The chain and skipped stitches will create an open hole for the arm to go through!
Row 8: Turn. Dc in the next 5 st. Ch 8, skip the next 6 st. Dc in the next st. Dc in the next 9. Ch 8, skip the next 6 st, Dc next in the next st. Dc in the next 4 st (36)

Row 10-11: Turn. Sc in the next 36 st (36)
Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Now we will place a smooth edge all around the jacket. Place your hook into the bottom corner of the jacket and yarn over with purple yarn. Make 1 single crochet around the edge of the jacket all around once you meet the next corner or collar of the jacket, place 3 Sc into 1 stitch. Continue to make 1 single crochet all around , but placing 3 Sc into 1 stitch of each corner/collar. Once done, finish off and weave in ends.

Place the jacket onto the doll as shown. We’re putting the jacket on now because it will help us determine where to place the arms accurately.

Arms: (Make 2)

In Green

Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3-5: *Sc* all around (12)
Round 6-19: Change to purple. *Sc* all around (12)
Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing. I added a little bit of stuffing at the hand area, but left no stuffing at the top of the arm. Pin the arm into the hole of the sleeve and sew on. Weave in ends.

Stitches:

In Dark Green

Take a long piece of yarn and place it onto a needle. Insert your needle between Round 45 and 46 , and pull needle out about 8 stitches away reinsert needle into the spot you first placed your needle into pull needle out about 8 stitches away reinsert needle into the line just made, making sure to insert your needle into the middle of the yarn to result in a straighter line repeat the process shown in Pics/Step until you’ve made a line all around it’s head.

To make the stitches, pull needle out at the top of Round 47. Insert needle a few rounds down (at the bottom of Round 44,). Repeat Pics/Steps , spacing lines about 4 stitches apart, until you’ve done this around the entire head. Weave in ends.

Hair:

In Black

Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: *Inc, Sc in the next st* all around (18)

Round 12: Repeat *Ch 4. Sc in the 2nd Ch from the hook, Dc in the next Ch, Trc in the next Ch. Working back on the circle, SlSt in the next 2 st* all around. SlSt in the last 2 st (Stitch Count: 13 hair peaks made).

Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing. Pin the hair on so each peak lands between each dark green stitch as shown. Sew on – I sewed down each peak as that made it secure enough. Weave in ends.

Bolts: (Make 2)

In Grey

Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: In the BLO, *Dec* all around (6)
Round 4: In the FLO, *Sc* all around (6)
Round 5-6: In BOTH loops, *Sc* all around (6)
Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Squish the top part as shown. Take a new piece of grey yarn and sew these pieces together to form a more flat piece. Once done, secure this by tying the end of yarn into a firm knot and bringing it into the bold to hide the knot.

Now place the bolt onto the head as shown (the bottom of the bolt will be on Round 42, and the top of the bolt will be on Round 44). Don’t stuff, and sew on. Weave in ends.

Smile:

In Black Embroidery Thread

Insert needle with thread where shown, and pull out one stitch over from the left eye reinsert needle into the original insertion area and pull needle out one stitch over from the right eye insert needle into the original insertion spot now you’re done! Just tie the ends of thread into firm knots, then bring the knots inside the toy to hide, cutting off any excess yarn.

How to do the “x” single crochet stitch:

Insert hook into the next stitch. Yarn under by having your hook above the yarn. Pull the yarn through. You will have 2 loops on your hook, make sure these loops are the same height as shown 

Now yarn over as you usually do pull the yarn through both loops. Done! 

Important note: You must have tight tension when yarning under and bringing that yarn under through the stitch. Your yarn over should also have tight tension, but not AS tight as your yarn under tension. This is what I’ve found works for me to get the perfect “x” shape.

All Finished.
