MINI AMIGURUMI COW FREE CROCHET 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

  • Size 4 worsted weight yarn (50g of white yarn, small amounts of brown or black, pink for the nose, and beige for the horns) 
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook (these are my favorites!)
  • 9mm safety eyes 
  • Black crochet/embroidery thread for eyelashes (optional) 
  • Scissors and tapestry needle
  • Stuffing
  • Stitch markers (a piece of scrap yarn works great!)

Abbreviations: US terminology
MC- Magic circle
SC- Single crochet
SC INC- Single crochet increase
INV DEC- Invisible decrease
DC- Double crochet
St(s)- Stitch(es)

*Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round, I like using a stitch marker at the beginning of each round. The legs, body and head are made as one piece. 
Nose/Mouth-

This piece is worked crocheting on both sides of the foundation chain to create an oval shape, you will want to keep your chain fairly tight to help avoid the look of ‘holes’, we will also be working in the round

Ch 5

Round 1: SC in the 2nd chain from hook, SC in the next 2 chains, 3SC in the last chain; working down the other side of the foundation chain (see picture for reference), SC in the next 2 chains, complete 2SC in the last chain (which is also the first chain we started with) (10 SC)

Rounds 2-3: SC around (10 SC)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing

Legs –

Make 2 – Using black or brown

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each st (12 SC)

Round 3: SC in the back loops only (12 SC)

Rounds 4-5: SC around (12 SC) Change to white

Rounds 6-12: SC around (12 SC)

Fasten off (when you finish the 2nd leg do not fasten off, proceed to round 13)

*Round 13 joins the legs together and starts the body, we will not be making a chain to connect the legs.

Round 13: Attach to the first leg with a SC (I like to make sure both color changes are facing the same way, I make this the back of the mini cow). SC around the first leg and then the second leg (24 SC) This completes your join and is where your next round will start, from here we will work the body.

NOTE: Here is where we will attach the facial features. Place the safety eyes 4 stitches apart between rounds 31-32. (For the girl version, I recommend sewing on the eyelashes before securing your safety eyes). Sew the nose piece centered between the eyes.
