Mummy Mini Amigurumi

Mummy

What’s Halloween to a crocheter without a few monster amigurumis, am I right?

For 2018, I’ve designed not one but TWO new monster amis for your collection: this adorable mini mummy and an equally frightening (yet cute) Frankenstein’s monster!

This little mummy adds a little bit of scary and a little bit of cuteness to your life. You’re going to love him!

This little doll measures approximately 4″ tall and is pretty easy to make. Scroll down to find out the tools, materials, and stitches needed to make him. When you’re ready to get started, scroll down even further to see the pattern!

If you’re still feeling in the Halloween spirit, why not add this mini vampire, mini Frankenstein, or the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus to your project list?

Mummy Pattern

Head

Rnd 1) In WHITE, make a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and work 6 sc in the center of the Magic Circle. Join to the beginning sc of the round and ch 1. (6)

Rnd 2) *sc inc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 3) *sc inc, sc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (18)

Rnds 4-7) 18 sc. Join and ch 1. (18)

Insert the eyes into the 8th and 12th stitches of round 5, so that there are 3 sc stitches between the eyes.

Rnd 8) *sc dec, sc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Carefully stuff the head, but do not overstuff!

Rnd 9) *sc dec* x 6. Join and ch 1. (6)

Rnd 10) 6 sc. Join and ch 1. (6)

 

Torso

Rnd 11) *sc inc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 12) *sc inc, 3 sc* – repeat 3 times. Join and ch 1. (15)

Rnds 13-15) 15 sc. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving. (15)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s torso, but leave room for you to work the stitches for the beginning of the legs–you can also stuff what’s left of the torso when you stuff your doll’s legs!

 

Leg #1

Insert your hook into the back center-most stitch of round 15 of the body. With WHITE, ch 1.

Rnd 1) 8 sc. Join to the 1st sc of the round and ch 1. (8)

Rnds 2-3) 8 sc. Join and ch 1. (8)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s leg.

Rnd 4) *sc dec* x 4. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving.

 

Leg #2

Insert your hook into the 8th sc of round 15 of the body (this is the same stitch in which you worked the last sc of rnd 1 of leg #1). With WHITE, ch 1.

Rnd 1) 8 sc. Join to the 1st sc of the round and ch 1. (8)

Rnds 2-3) 8 sc. Join and ch 1. (8)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s leg.

Rnd 4) *sc dec* x 4. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving.

 

Finishing the Legs

After you’ve made your doll’s legs, you’ll probably notice a small gap between them where they should be joined. Use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to stitch any opening between the legs closed. Weave in ends.

If you see any opening at the base of the doll’s feet, you can use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to stitch that opening closed as well, then weave in your ends.

 

Arms (Make 2)

Rnd 1) In WHITE, make a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and work 5 sc in the center of the Magic Circle. Join to the beginning sc of the round and ch 1. (5)

Rnds 2-4) 5 sc. Join and ch 1. (5)

Rnd 5) 5 sc. Join and fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. (5)

Weave in all ends of your doll’s arms by pulling them through the length of the arm, then trim. Do this for all of the tail ends for the arms EXCEPT for the long tails that you left for sewing.

Using the long tail that’s left, sew the opening at the top (“shoulder”) of the doll’s arm shut so that it is basically sewn flat across. Then sewn the arms to round 11 of the doll’s body so that the now flat part of the doll’s arm lays nice and flat against the doll’s body. Repeat for the second arm.

Bandages

The bandages are made out of one long chain, which is then carefully wrapped around the doll’s body and then stitched on with the tail ends of the yarn.

Chain 250. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing/weaving.

Begin by wrapping the chain around the doll’s body, starting at the neck. Follow the step-by-step photos below for an idea of how to wrap the bandages, or wrap them however you like best!

Finishing

When you’re satisfied with the placement of your bandages, cut a long strand of WHITE yarn and carefully stitch the chain into place. You don’t have to stitch along the entire thing–just a few key spots so that it doesn’t move around!

Weave in all ends and trim any excess yarn.
