10 Amigurumi Patterns Inspired By Video Games

If you’re following me on Pinterest you may have noticed that I suffer from a serious case of crochet Amigurumi awe. Unfortunately for me, I am useless when it comes to crochet so I thought I would share these 10 patterns inspired by video games for any crocheter out there who actually knows what on earth they’re doing!

Once made, these patterns would make a fantastic gift for the gamer in your life, or serve as a great way to gamify your own home or office space.

    I just taught myself (from Youtube!) some basic crochet recently, on my 3rd scarf now! Definitely hooked and trying some amigurumi is my eventual aim! I love the Pikachu and minecraft creeper – they look like they might be slightly easier to start with. I’ll let you know how it goes! lol

    • Nice! I used to practically live on crochetgeek.com hoping that I would find a pattern that I could finish, but I’m still doing something wrong when it comes to finishing rows, and even my friend who is great at it (And has had to show me a bajillion times how it’s done) can’t figure out where I’m going wrong. Clearly I’m just cursed.

      Please do let me know how you go 😀

    I adore amigurumis!! But I have no idea how to crochet haha. It’s definitely a life goal to learn, but I am in no rush. So maybe in ten years or so I’ll finally decide to learn, and then I’ll make the crap out of that little Link. And a Chocobo. Just so adorable!!

    • I think my biggest problem is that I’m just too impatient. I’ve tried several times to learn it, but I’m still getting something fundamentally wrong and it never works.

  • The Tauren!!! Oh my goodness <3 I wish I could crochet hahah.

    • Same here! Tried it, failed miserably. I’ll just have to be content looking at awesome works on Pinterest 😛

  • Syrco

    Oh, I love it! I need that tauren and Link and Tails and the mushrooms and a moonkin of course! :O But I don’t know even how to make a simple circle…

    • Chain four, slip stitch into the first link, chain up a few and then crochet as per usual. That is like, the only thing I remember off the top of my head 😛

  • That Yuna is so precious! Ah!
