Chocobo Amigurumi

Hey!

I'm back with another free pattern today! Have been working on one big 3x plush commission so that took me a while and kept me busy. Now that I'm a little free again, I should have some free patterns coming up :)

More pokemon hopefully!

The other night I went to a final fantasy concert and that has inspired this little cutie that I have been wanting to make for a long time now.

If you would like to purchase, this particular chocobo, I have him up for sale here on Etsy.

Chocobo Pattern

When finished, this little chocobo is about 17cm (almost 7inches) tall when made from DK yarn. I didn't put any wiring in the legs but he is still able to stand on his own given the right circumstances. If you want a really study chocobo, then you can wire the legs.

To make him, I used:
DK Yarn - yellow, white, orange, cream
G/6 – 4.0mm crochet hook
12mm plastic blue eyes
Stuffing

Leave a tail on each. Sew three tips to each of the wings (on the narrow end) and then sew the wings to the body. Sew the last 5 tips onto the head. One on the forehead and four to the back of the head.

To sew on the wing tips, I sewed one piece on the front and two behind, then used the tail from the last tip to sew them together so they stay sturdy.
