Original Amigurumi Crochet Patterns

Freddie Mercury

The Mercury Pheonix Trust

The Mercury Phoenix Trust was founded by Brian May, Roger Taylor and their manager Jim Beach in memory of rock band Queen’s iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury who sadly died in 1991 from AIDS related pneumonia. In the last 21 years the Trust has given away over 15 million dollars in his name and funded over 700 projects in the global battle against HIV/AIDS.

As a tribute to the legendary Freddie I’ve created his likeness in amigurumi, capturing his essential awesomeness in yarn!

  1. Would it be possible to buy one of these dolls from you? I am a rubbish knitter but know someone who would just love this! could make a donation to the foundation if possible? Please let me know, many thanks. Great work!

    • Hi Jen, I don’t currently have any for sale but I will consider making them in the future when I have a bit more time, so do keep an eye on my Facebook page. I will open an order book on there as soon as I can get organised.

  2. OK thanks for letting me know. I would definitely be interested when you are selling them 🙂

  3. Hi Jen, would you mind if I made a few for sale with all proceeds going to the Mercury Trust fund

  4. Thank you Jen!

  5. I’ve been happily crocheting away on this and wonder if there’s a mistake on the jacket colour? It says to use the White yarn, starting at the collar, which I did, but it didn’t change to Yellow until after row 13, which is the complete basic jacket shape. After that it says to switch to Yellow. Can you just clarify how many rows to do for the collar in White before switching to the Yellow, thanks.

    • Well spotted and thanks for letting me know! It should say start in yellow. In fact the whole jacket is made in yellow and the white collar is added afterwards in the instructions for ‘Collar Top’ on page 8. Sorry for the confusion. I hope that’s clearer now. I’m off to ammend the pattern!

  6. PS I’ve done a few of your lovely patterns and they’ve all turned out beautifully.

  8. Hi I’ve been crocheting the Freddie doll and I’m a little bit stuck on the shoes. In rnd 1. After crocheting blo in next 4 ch, it says 6sc in nxt chain before rotating. I’m stuck to where this ch is ? Please help lovely design btw.

    • Hi! The chain with six sc in it is the last chain in the row (the first chain you made). So if you have seven chains in the foundation chain you skip the first ch (1st chain) make 3 sc in the next ch (2nd chain), then 1 sc in each of the next 4 ch (3rd,4th,5th and 6th chains). Now there should be one chain left at the end of your foundation chain (7th chain) and the 6 sc are all squeezed into there. Then rotate your work and sc in the other side of the chain back to where you began round 1. Does that make more sense? Let me know if you’re still not sure.

  9. Oh right. Get it now. I dunno I must just of got crocheters block. It so makes sense now. Thankyou 😁

  10. hello, you can make a translation into Italian and publish it on my blog quoting your site?

    • Hi Maria, I prefer to keep the patterns on my blog only so that people will come and visit my site to get their copy. I would be very happy to publish your translation on my blog though and then you could put a link back to me to download it. I could even make sure your blog address is on the front of the Italian language pattern along with your name as the official translator. Let me know if you are interested in that.

  11. *wipes eyes* I’m not crying! it’s just… okay maybe I am… LOVED(and still do love) Queen’s music… Introduced to it Via Revenge of the Nerds, fell in love with we are the champions, and We will rock you… but i have to say this… “Wayne, i believe it’s time for a little Bohemian…” *cues up Bohemian rhapsody on her Ipod* yeah…. excuse me while i go re-live my childhood

  12. Hello, I LOVED making your Freddie (he really is fabulous), so much so that I used your pattern as a base to make a Brian May toy too! I thought you might like to take a look, the details are on my ravelry page

  14. Hi! I don’t know how to do the nose. Could you please help me with that?

  15. Hi Lynne, Glad you like my version of Freddie. How wonderful to have been there in person. You are very lucky! I don’y have any actual dolls for sale, I’m sorry to say. I really just concentrate on making new patterns. I hope you manage to find someone who can make you one. If I hear of anyone taking on commissions I’ll be sure to let you know.

  16. It was absolutely great and I was lucky enough to have been at Live Aid the previous year which is why I had to see Queen again! Thanks very much for the reply. I will keep my eye out for a knitting genius!

  17. That last comment was from me again – I forgot to add my name!
