Original Amigurumi Crochet Patterns

Free Patterns

I hope you enjoy what you find here. I will be adding more free patterns as time goes by, so be sure to check back regularly or sign up to follow this blog. If you’ve made something from any of my patterns and you find yourself in a sharing kind of mood, I would love for you to post a photo of your amigurumi on my Facebook page. I’ll put them all together with the others in this album: Your Moji-Moji Creations  I’m always excited to see what you made! (I can link the photos to your blog/page or shop too, if you wish, just let me know the details). Happy crocheting to you all!

Click below on the picture of the pattern you want. This will take you to a page where you can either download the pattern or read it in the relevant blog post.

Have fun with these patterns but please don’t re-publish them in any way or post them on your own pages. You are very welcome to post any images you like with a link back to my blog. I am happy for you to make and sell the finished articles from both my free and paid for patterns. A credit for Moji-Moji Design (Janine Holmes) as the pattern creator would make me very happy and a link to my blog or any of my online shops (listed on the ‘Pattern Store’ page) would be the icing on the cake!

I use US crochet terms throughout my patterns. However, it is easy to convert them to UK terms – simply refer to the chart below and substitute the stitches accordingly.

American (US) British (UK)
ch chain ch chain
slst slip stitch ss slip stitch
sc single crochet dc double crochet
hdc half double crochet htr half treble crochet

In order to keep the handmade love going please note that wholesale manufacturing of items from my patterns is not permitted. Thank you.

  1. I was wanting to download the owls in the nest free pattern how I am getting webpage not available could you please help me. Tricia

  2. Sorry it has worked finally they are just so cute.

    • No problem. There are occasionally technical glitches from time to time (I don’t pretend to know why or how?!) If you ever have trouble downloading again I am always happy to email you the patterns. Happy hooking!

  3. found your site and am so excited. Your designs are adorable and just absolutely love what you’ve created. Hopefully I can recreate these adorable free patterns and work onto the rest. Thank you so much for the inspiration, and sharing your beautiful work. Love it! Can’t wait to see what else is coming!

    • Hi Robyn, Thanks for your lovely words. I’m glad you have been enjoying looking at all my amigurumi. I hope you enjoy the free patterns, they will be perfect to get you started. If you have any questions about how to do something in one of my patterns then don’t hesitate to ask. I’m always happy to help out where I can!

  4. Hello! Your Walter bear is awesome!! I can’t download it though, and there are no balconies of the relevant Knit crochet magazine, and whilst its listed in their patterns, there is no link to download from their online site either 😭 I’m in the Facebook group called UK Crochet and there are a number of us desperately wanting the pattern. Can you help us in any way?? Many thanks, Heather

    • Oops I meant back copies, not balconies! Autocorrect fail!

    • Hi Heather, I would have suggested trying to get hold of back copies (balconies lol) but as they’ve run out there’s not much more I can do for a contractual period of two years from date of print, when I will be able to make the pattern available in my own shops/website. So sorry, but If you are patient I will be sure to let you know when Walter makes his non- LGC magazine debut! I have a Huggy Bear pattern on Ravelry/Etsy that would work well with stripes. Not quite the same, I know, but he’s also easy to make like Walter.

  5. Sorry Angie but I don’t have any pictures other than those that are in the pattern. I would suggest that YouTube is a great place to start. There are lots of ‘how to’ videos on there for amigurumi. The basic technique is the same for all amigurumi, including my owls so that should help you.

  6. I want to thank you for being so generous with your talent! I appreciate you allowing us to sell cuteness we make. Thank you!

  7. Etant française, je trouve qu’ajouter un traducteur (google traduction) qui permettrait de sélectionner la langue de son choix serait un plus indéniable à ce joli blog qui propose de ravissants modèles, que je ne peux, hélas, pas utiliser car je ne comprends ni l’anglais, ni l’américain !

  8. Hi I really wanted to try your beautiful owl pattern but for some reason it just won’t download to my computer. I was wondering if you possibly were able to email the patten . All your patterns are beautiful and thanks so much for sharing them x

  9. Trying to find your partner you made could you point me that,way please

  10. Sorry my silly computer changed the word to partner. I’m looking for . The parott

  11. Thanks so much.l love you patterns and want to make the squirrel
    Fantastic sit e and winderfulvresoonse. Thanks,again for a. K.l. l you do

  12. Freddie Mercury!!! Wow Queen is one of my two favorite bands after listening to their music and crocheting all day yesterday I find a Freddie pattern I can’t wait to make it just finished Wesley yesterday thanks so much my other favorite band is Judas Priest how about a Rob Halford pattern?

    • Thats great to hear! I definitely want to make more character dolls when I get the time. I’ll look into the Rob Halford idea 🙂 Or you may find the Freddie pattern is quite easy to adapt.

  13. i just made the freddy and I love him thankyou for the pattern x

  14. Thank you so much, for your generosity… abdolutley deloightful.

  15. i love all your patterns but i just have 1 question the ivndec hows that down

    • Thanks Bonnie! The invdec (invisible decrease) is done like this:
      [Insert hook into front loop only of first stitch, do not wrap yarn, insert hook into front loop only of next stitch. You will now have a total of three loops on your hook. Wrap your yarn around hook and pull through both of the 2 front loops on the hook, wrap yarn around hook again and pull through last 2 loops on hook].
      I hope that makes sense, it is such a neat way to decrease and eliminates the bumps and holes you get with the normal sc2tog (single crochet 2 together) method.

  16. Hi I found your mitty mouse in one of the crochet magazines and liked it so much I have visited your web site your patterns are amazing and so colourful. I will be definitely doing some of the free patterns as I have never done this type of crochet before. Thank you for the introduction 🙂

    • I hope you get a lot of pleasure from your new amigurumi hobby, it’s rather addictive once you get going. I’ve been doing this for nearly four years now and love it just as much as when I fist started!

  17. Thank you for being so generous with your patterns. I have a grand daughter who loves owls and will use your pattern to make her some. It’s winter in South Africa and am busy pruning my Hundreds of roses but love crocheting and embroidery. Kind regards. Rose Meiring

  18. I love the bb dolls I made one but mine came a lot more then 6″. I used a # 2 needle and cotton yarn. Do I use yarn or cotton thread?

    • Hi Bonnie, I use regular DK (double knit weight / 8 ply) acrylic yarn rather than crochet thread. I love the softness and stretch of acrylics and the choice of colours is fabulous. If you are in the states you may find worsted weight yarn easier to get hold of, it’s a bit thicker than our UK dk weight but up the hook size to a 3.25 mm hook and they should work out fine (though your amigurumi will be a bit bigger than stated in the pattern). Alternatively, if you want smaller amigurumi you could try sportweight (4 ply) yarn and a 2 mm hook. hope that helps!

  19. Hi, I love all the patterns and congrats for sharing. I don´t know if you read the prev comment on the Hedgehog, that I will love to have the free patterns to go for it. Can you please help me out here by sharing them?

  20. Thanks so much for your unselfish kindness in sharing your beautiful crochet patterns with us for free! Xxxx

  27. My mother in-law and I made your little snow men for my girls’ 2nd and kindergarten classes, it was my first crochet project and now I think I’m officially addicted. We ended up making 45 of them and the kids adored them. Thank you. Leslie

  28. Dear Janine, I see you have amazing ideas.. I have a problem though… I’m trying to get Walter the bear( was love at first sight) but can’t find it anywhere… I don’t mind paying for it. Could you maybe help me get the pattern? Thanks anyway!

  30. I made the nest of rainbow owls for a young friend of mine who is very ill. She was thrilled to bits! Thank you very much for the pattern.

  31. Love your patterns, am all ready to give them a try.

  32. Hi
    I really love the alpacas you made and I can’t find the pattern anywhere. Would you please post a link to somewhere I can find because it’s so cute.

    • Hi Chelsea, I’m working on the download for Alicia the Alpaca this week. She’s currently only available as part of a book called Zoomigurumi 5 available on Amazon or over at the book is great value and has 14 other fab designs in it. If you prefer to just purchase the alpaca pattern I’ll let you know as soon as it’s in my Etsy shop 😊

  33. Congratulations! Please , is possible the translation in Spanish? Thanks…

  34. Hi
    I’m Nanske from Belgium
    I have a FB group and my members asked me if I would translate your wonderful free patterns into Dutch
    Can I please have your permission ??
    I will put the link to your webpage or blog on it or I give you the translation and put the link to it on my group 
    Greetings and Blessings 

    • Hi Nanske,
      It would be wonderful to have my free patterns translated into Dutch. I would prefer to host the translations on my own blog with a link to your group. I can also put a credit for you as the translator on the front page of the pattern. If you wish to go ahead then I can arrange to send you copies of the patterns that are in word format if that will make translation easier for you. Thank you for your kind offer. Janine.

  35. Hoi janine..

  37. Thank you for your wonderful ideas. I am making small toys for our first responders to give to youngsters in a trama situation. They will love these.

  38. I am trying to download the pattern for the tiny snowmen but it says page unavailable , please help , many thanks Gail

  39. Hello! I am looking for the pattern for the elves from issue 64. It’s on your Ravelry page, but when I click on it, it takes me to “” which won’t let me download..keeps saying your not activated. Anyway, I have been trying for two years to get that pattern to make for my kids. Please help! I will buy it! I will buy issue 64! No one will sell it to me. The magazine will not ship to the U.S. People selling their copies won’t ship to the US either. Any help in obtaining either the elf pattern or issue 64 would be so appreciated.

    • HI Jean, The elves pattern was commissioned for a UK magazine. They run the website at Top Crochet Patterns and as such I have no control over how to access it. You could try emailing the website direct to get them to sort out your access problems. Sorry I can’t be of more help. I hope you get hold of it in the end.

  40. Looking for the adorable Easter basket bags. I can’t find it.

  41. I am trying to work the Walter bear pattern and his head keeps coming out like the shape of a football. What could I be doing wrong? I am following the pattern to a “t”. Is there a video tutorial for that pattern?

    • I’m not sure what is happening with Walter’s head but here are a few thoughts. Are you using UK double crochets (which are equivalent to US single crochets)? The terminology differs between the two countries. The head is quite round, though it has a pointy nose. Some of the shaping comes from the length of yarn that is threaded under the eyes and tied under the head. I don’t have access to that version of the free pattern as it was made for a UK magazine and isn’t currently within my control so I’m not sure if you have the appropriate diagrams that explain this part. Let me know if not and I will see if I can find you a picture.

  42. Thank you so much. I was using the UK terminology. I will retry again. 🙂 thank you for the pattern.

  43. I am trying the legs on the walter bear and I’m on rnd8 and I can’t seem to come up with 15 stitches. I end up with 12. How do I go from rnd7 18 stitches to rnd8 15 stitches.?

  44. Hi, I bought one of your lovely patterns, the easter treat bag, and I am having a little trouble with it. The base seems quite small to me 8 rows worked up to only 6 1/2 inches across. Is this right or have I gone wrong somewhere? Please help
    Thank You

    • That’s about the right size, Tan. The whole bag measures around 8″ tall (I think it states the final measurement at the beginning of the pattern. I just measured my bunny face bag and it is 6″ across the bottom. It’s more of a clutch bag rather than a shoulder tote. Sounds like you’re on the right track to me 🙂

  45. Hi, Thanks for your reply. I’ll keep at I’m loving it so far. Thanks again

  46. Same as Trina. No Owl pattern

  47. Hi I am having trouble also downloading owls could you please email me the pattern. Also, you request not to re-publish in any manner however can I put in the nursing home newsletter?

  48. bonjour, vos modèles sont très jolis mais je ne peux pas les télécharger, je reçois un message qui me dit que la page n’est pas disponible, c’est dommage – comment faire pour télécharger les hiboux et poussins Please . Thank you ( Annie)

  49. allemaal heel mooi maar vind geen nederlandse gratis patronen

  50. I have seen a free pattern for Walter Bear on Pinterest, but when I went to Ravelry to find it it was not there. I am super keeen to make this bear for my Grandson, can anyone direct me to it please?

    • Hi Polly, the pattern is no longer available for free from the magazine I designed it for as the two year licence period is now up and all rights have reverted back to me. I will be tweaking the pattern slightly and listing it for sale in my Ravelry shop soon 😊
