Baymax Amigurumi

June 5, 2017

 

What a cute little crochet amigurumi project. Somebody asked if I'd make this as a gift for a friend  - as a favour so no copyright breaching. It's a Baymax inspired character car air freshener. As well as being stuffed with the usual fibre it has a scented core of essential oil to make it smell divine for a long long time.

 

If you don't know what Baymax is (I didn't either) evidently he's a character from an animated movie called Big Hero 6. All that's left for this little dude is to have a gift box made and off it can go to make someone happy.

 

The pattern is super simple and was just adapted from the pattern I use to make the basis of my little farmyard animals. It's really just an hour glass shape created by starting with a magic ring and gradually increasing then decreasing to create the head then increasing and decreasing again to make the body and then making two little cap shaped feet and two sock like arms and stitching it all together.  Each component starts with a magic ring and 6 single crochet (double crochet in US terms).

 

I'm sure you'll find a pattern if you search on the internet and if you do save it because this shape is a great starting point for lots of character type amigurumi.  I might make this in a video one day as it's really super versatile and well worth sharing and depending on skill level a very quick project. It doesn't take an experienced crocheter to make it either so yes, I might just do a tutorial soon.

 

For this one I used a Stylecraft Special DK acrylic in white which is available from lots of different outlets including Bella Coco Store and Wool Warehouse and a size 3mm hook. I added the mouth and heart cutting them out freehand from felt and gluing on securely.

 

Thanks for dropping in as always.
