Captain America Amigurumi Pattern

I got a request from my cousin to make a Captain America amigurumi, and since I couldn’t find any good free patterns online, I decided to come up with my own! This is my first amigurumi design, and I had a lot of fun thinking of how to create this little guy! I hope you have fun making him too!

(By the way, the one on the right is the first draft. The one on the left will be the one you’re making!)

Description

A tiny Captain America! He has trouble standing up on his own because he ate too much and became a little tubby!

 

Abbreviations

Ch: chain

Sc: single crochet

St: stitch

Inc: Increase (2sc in next st)

Inv dec: Invisible Decrease

Jogless colour change: Method Two listed here

Update 18 Jan: For clarification, after slipping in the new colour, single crochet in the same st. That sc will be the first st of the round. So, for example, a round ends with 30 st and requires a jogless colour change in next st. After the 30th st, perform the jogless colour change, which will result in one loop on the hook in the new colour. Sc in the same st. That is the first st of the next round. Hope this clarifies things up 🙂

Pattern


 

All parts are done with a 2.75mm hook unless otherwise stated.

 

Head

With ocean yarn:

Round 1: Sc 6 in the magic ring. (6)

Round 6: sc in next 11 st, change to white, sc in next 3 st, change to ocean, sc in next 16 st. [11/3/16] (30) (This format will be used for the rest of the rows requiring mid-row colour changes. After changing colours, carry the secondary colour along the work, much like tapestry crochet. I break off the white yarn every row, otherwise carrying the white yarn will cause unsightly peeking white blobs around the work.)

Round 13: *sc in next 3 st, inv dec* around. (24)

Start tying ends in the wrong side.
