Kawaii Sunshine Flower Amigurumi Free Pattern!

 


I missed last week because I wasn't feeling so great. I'm back now and ready to share with you a great little scrap busting project that would make a perfect Easter basket filler or shelf sitter. 

I came up with these little cuties because I needed to use up some of my tiny little yarn balls and I think we all could use a little sunshine and flowers in our lives these days. 

Materials:
  • Small amounts worsted weight yarn in any color you choose. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn
  • Small amount black embroidery floss for mouth
  • 3.5 mm hook (E)
  • 14 mm safety eyes (or small amount black thread if you prefer)
  • Yarn needle

Skill Level:

  • beginner


Abbreviations:

  • mr - magic ring

  • sc - single crochet

  • inc - increase (2 sc in same stitch)

  • tr - treble crochet

  • st - stitch

  • ch - chain

  • sl st - slip stitch


Remember that you can use any color of yarn that you want, but if you change the weight of the yarn adjust your hook size to match. Larger weight yarn = larger hook size and vice versa.

As always, we are working in continuous rounds.

Ball:
(make 2 in any color you like)

Rnd 1: 6 sc in mr (6)

Rnd 2: inc x 6 (12)

Rnd 3: (sc in next st, inc) x 6 (18)

Rnd 4: (sc in next 2 st, inc) x 6 (24)

Rnd 5: (sc in next 3 st, inc) x 6 (30)

Rnd 6: (sc in next 4 st, inc) x 6 (36)
Rnd 7: (sc in next 5 st, inc) x 6 (42)
Rnd 8: (sc in next 6 st, inc) x 6 (48)
Rnd 9: (sc in next 7 st, inc) x 6 (54)
Rnd 10: (sc in next 8 st, inc) x 6 (60) - On 2nd circle, do this round in the back loop only. You will attach the petals to the front loops.
Fasten off. Leave a long tail for sewing on 1st circle. Weave in ends on 2nd circle.

Attach safety eyes to 2nd circle between rounds 4 & 5. Sew the two circles together making sure to stuff firmly before sealing. (Option: If you don't have safety eyes, you can make your own in any color you like. I used black - sc 6 in magic ring. sl st to first loop. Pull tight. Fasten off and sew to face.)

Flower petals (or sun rays, depending on what your preference is)
Ch 45. 
4 tr in 4th ch from hook, sk 1st, sl st in next st. This is your first petal.
For the remainder of the petals:
(5 tr in next st, sk 1 st, sl st in next st) x 13. You should have 14 petals. Fasten off. Leave long tail. Attach to the front loops of round 10 on the 2nd circle. 

Embroider the mouth between the eyes as shown. 

These work up super fast and you can do all kinds of things with them.
