Skittles Amigurumi - Free Pattern by ex-astris1701 Skittles Amigurumi - Free Pattern by ex-astris1701
Free Amigurumi Pattern - "The Skittle"

The free pattern is available at my blog (exastris1701.wordpress.com)

Last week I was freakishly bored, munching on some Skittles, and fussing around with some purple yarn. An hour later the first amigurumi creation, dubbed "The Skittle", was born. Within 2 days I had 5 stackable Skittles and requests for 4 more.

These are super simple and quick to work up. Each is designed to stack one on top of the other too, which, I must admit is fun to do. I've gotten a stack of 5 full sized so far without supports. . . Hmm, yes, I suppose I do need a life . . .

But this is a nice enough diversion for now :)

Pattern excerpt:

Difficulty level: ** Two stars good for a beginner with just a bit of experience in making amigurumi.

Finished size: Approximately 2.25 inches from top to tush. But YMMV.

Head (x1)
Woked in a continuous spiral. Do not join rounds.
Magic circle 6 stitches
Round 1) Inc in each stitch (12)
Round 2) *sc, inc* repeat around (18)
Round 3) *2 sc, inc* repeat around (24)
Round 4) *3 sc, inc* repeat around (30)
Round 5-9) sc around (maintain 30)
Round 10) *3 sc, dec* repeat around
Round 11) *2 sc, dec* repeat around FO

I've posted the complete, free pattern on my blog. Hopefully it'll be of use to someone :D

Now go forth, make an amigurumi Skittle army! WORLD DOMINATION! :evillaugh:

i agree with theyarnbunny they are bright colored versions of heartless from kingdome hearts... but i may be tempted to make a bunch of them in all the yarn i have and sit them either on my back seat or in the rear window or both just cus i can and come one looking in some one's car as we walk pass and seeing those would make me go 'aw there so cutie i want one '

Unfortunately there is no video or anything yet for this particular pattern. For that you can keep an eye on this blog: [link] - if ever a video is created it'd be posted there :)
There are general video tutorials you can check out though. These might be useful: [link] | [link] | [link] - these are general help videos I've found on YouTube

That sounds like an interesting project ^^ Do you have a picture you can link me? It seems like I could do something like that for under 30 USD.

How much would it be? I'm not sure if you can make it yet or if I can pay.

First I've got to see if I can find the right materials. If I have the right color yarn, then it would probably cost about $20 (give or take shipping).

Crocheting is not too hard once you get the hang of it. Like with most things practice, experimenting, and getting help from others can be really helpful :)

I might have to start bringing my crocheting to class with me. I've never finished a project, but I think these might be simple enough for my easily distracted brain. C:

I have so much trouble with the Magic Adjustable Ring, though. I don't really get why, it's not that difficult a technique, but whatever. I might use the regular start or try to figure it out. XD

Also, I get the origin of your username. /Taps nose

I had a lot of trouble with that too. I ended up just ignoring the instructions and figuring out my own way to make the ring xD Chaining 2 and crocheting 6 into the second chain should work just fine to start off though. This method sometimes results in a loose hole kind of thing at the top, and if that's the case I like to use a smaller hook to start and then switch to my normal size on the second round :)


Not many people get the reference :D

Ooooh, I never thought of doing it that way! I might have to try it out. Thanks for the tip! C:

Yeah, it's not something even a lot of fandom people get. I love that motto, though.
