Instructions

Step One

My Buddy Friend is an easy crochet pattern that makes a great first amigurumi project. It uses basic crochet stitches (chain, single crochet, and slip stitch), working in rounds (for the body, eyes, arms, and legs) and rows (for the mouth and hair), increasing, decreasing (with a link to a photo tutorial), and joining pieces (with links to photo tutorials)

 

Finished Size

  • Approximately 7” (18 cm) square when seated with arms together; approximately 11.5” (29 cm) tall from hair to toes x 12” (30.5 cm) across from arm to arm when standing.

Gauge

  • Exact gauge is not critical for this project but stitches should be small so that Poly-Fil doesn’t show.
