Kirby Crochet

A Kirby amigurumi pattern I pieced together from various sources. Bonus: more Woobles kits I've done at the end!

Kirby Crochet

As a birthday gift for my brother, I tried to make him a Kirby amigurumi plushie with my newfound crocheting hobby. I found a couple patterns to use for the body and feet but basically free-handed the arms, eyes, and cheeks.

I used the Woobles Easy Peasy yarn in "Eat Pink & Be Merry" for the body, "Let's Ketchup Soon" for the feet and cheeks, and "The Coal Shebang" for the eyes. I also used the traditional Woobles hook size 4mm(G).



I used the large "round" variation from here and followed the pattern exactly.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: [1 inc] x 6 (12)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, 1 inc] x 6 (18)
Rnd 4: 1 sc, 1 inc, [2 sc, 1 inc] x5, 1 sc (24)
Rnd 5: [3 sc, 1 inc] x 6 (30)
Rnd 6: 2 sc, 1 inc, [4sc, 1 inc] x5, 2 sc (36)
Rnd 7-13: 36 sc (36)
Rnd 14: 2 sc, 1 dec, [4 sc, 1 dec] x5, 2 sc (30)
Rnd 15: [3 sc, 1 dec] x 6 (24)
Rnd 16: 1 sc, 1 dec, [2 sc, 1 dec] x5, 1 sc (18)
Rnd 17: [1 sc, 1 dec] x 6 (12)
Rnd 18: Fill ball with polyfil - 6 dec (6)
Fin: Cut yarn, close opening by pulling yarn tail through front loops of each stitch. Pull tight to close remaining gap and weave yarn tail into piece

Feet (x2):

For the feet I tweaked the "SHOE SHAPE FOOT" pattern from this blog. The changes I made are on round 4 where I single crocheted like normal instead of into the back loops only (by mistake and then just did the same for the other foot so I didn't have start over). I also tweaked round 7 and ended there instead of doing two more rows.

Rnd 1: ch 6, 4 sc, 3 sc in next st, continue on
the opposite side of the chain, 3 sc, 2 sc in
last st (12 sc)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in first st, 3 sc, 2 sc in next 3 st, 4
sc, 2 sc in last st (17)
Rnd 3: [2 sc, inc] x5, 2 sc (22)
Rnd 4: 22 sc (22)
Rnd 5: 8 sc, dec 4 times, 6 sc (18)
Rnd 6: 7 sc, dec 3 times, 5 sc (15)
Rnd 7: lightly stuff with polyfil - 5 sc, dec 3 times, 4 sc (12)
Fin: Cut long yarn tail, invisible fasten off and sew onto body

Hands (x2):

Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic ring (4)
Rnd 2: (1 inc, 1 sc) x2 (6)
Rnd 3: (2 sc, 1 inc) x2 (8)
Rnd 4: 8 sc (8)
Fin: Cut yarn tail, invisible fasten off and sew onto body


Embroider on using black and red yarn.


I would definitely do things differently next time. Mainly, I sewed the hands and feet upside-down on the body. So the top of the body ended up being the last round instead of the first.

I think I would also tweak the feet pattern a bit. I don't have much experience with crocheting yet (this is only like my fourth piece!) and I made it the night before his birthday so I didn't have a lot of time to play with or change things.

Overall, I am still pretty happy with how it turned out considering my inexperience and limited time frame! :)

Additionally, here are some more Woobles I have made since my last blog post:
