Free Crochet and Knit Amigurumi Patterns

“Amigurumi?  What in the heck is that?”

That was my comment when I first learned about the wonderful world of making cute little cuddly toys, animals, holiday decorations, and even pretend food for play!

You are going to be truly delighted with the huge collection of free amigurumi patterns that we have collected here to explore.

amigurumi knit or amigurumi crochet?

Many folks think of crochet when they think of creating amigurumi figures.  Although there are many amigurumi crochet patterns, we have found some adorable amigurumi knit patterns as well!

If you would like a refresher on crochet or knitting, please be sure to check out these pages.

If crochet is not yet in your skill set, never fear!  Check out the cute Mini Mermaid pattern from Red Ted Art.  A young beginner wanted to make a mermaid, but all of the patterns that she and her mom could find were amigurumi crochet mermaid patterns.

The 10-year-old daughter had not yet mastered the art of crochet, so the creative mom came up with her own amigurumi knit mermaid pattern.  This is a project that all amigurumi beginners who have mastered the basic knit and purl stitches can make!

Hopefully this inspires both those who amigurumi crochet as well as those who want to amigurumi knit to scroll down and see the wonderful free amigurumi patterns on this page.

Some of the patterns you will find are:

  • Dolls such as baby dolls, mermaid dolls, and tall doll figures
  • Sea animals such as the octopus, jellyfish, sea horse, and many more
  • Land animals like the adorable hedgehog, cute cows, peacock, and many more
  • Teddy Bears galore
  • Mystical animals like the beautiful unicorn, the narwhal, and the flying pigs
  • Food such as carrots and strawberries
  • Holiday ornaments 
  • Winter patterns for snowmen and penguins
  • Mini kitchen items like the chocolate fountain and cute teapot
  • And even more!!!

Some of the patterns are amigurumi crochet patterns and others are amigurumi knit patterns, but all of them are simply adorable!

As a side note, the Tiny Chickens from Mochimochi Land took me back to Easters long ago when I was intrigued by my great grandmother’s adorable chicken egg covers.

I didn’t know it then, but that was my first introduction to amigurumi.  At four years old, I had no idea how they were made, but I knew they were amazing and something I had never seen before.
