Free Amigurumi Chick Pattern & Rilakkuma Pattern Mod

Happy New Year Friends!!

Don’t you just love the fresh feeling of a new year?  It’s like a blank slate covered in hope, ready for the pen of your heart to write all manner of plans and dreams!  I don’t know about you but plans are hard for me to make and keep, as I am more of a dreamer and as such, my plans continually change!

One of the dreams I’ve had for a while, but haven’t succeeded in producing a solid plan, is to start a series of free amigurumi patterns and modifications for your favorite kawaii characters!  By pattern modifications, I’m talking about a few simple changes to an amigurumi pattern you purchased in one of my shops.

The first pattern mods I’d like to start this series with are for Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma and a free amigurumi pattern for Kiiroitori!  To make Rilakkuma as shown here, you are going to need to follow my Cutie Bear Pattern. If you haven’t heard of Rilakkuma or his friends, let me introduce you!
Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori
Rilakkuma is a character produced by the Japanese company San-X. His name is a combination of the word relax and the Japanese word for bear. As his name implies, Rilakkuma loves to relax and be very lazy. He enjoys laying around, sleeping, watching TV, soaking in hot springs and listening to music.

His friend Korilakkuma is is a younger, smaller bear hence “Ko” which means child in Japanese. She is an energetic and mischievous friend who enjoys playing tricks on Rilakkuma while he is sleeping, like drawing on him and sewing odd colored patches to his clothes!

Kiiroitori is a chick who lives with both the bears. He is a sensible and very mature bird, often scolding Rilakkuma for being too lazy and Korilakkuma for being too naughty. He’s the opposite of Rilakkuma with his hard working nature and love of cleanliness.

Cutie Pattern Modifications


Bear Amigurumi PatternCutie Pattern Link

The pattern used for both bears is the Cutie Bear pattern, available HERE.
Both bear’s body and head patterns are close to the same as the Cutie Bear pattern. The only difference is Rilakkuma’s body has one extra round of single crochets, between Rnds 6 & 7. This is to make Rilakkuma taller than Korilakkuma. You can see the height difference one round makes!

The pattern for the “Belly and Nose” is as follows, make two:

Belly and Nose
In a MR, sc 1, hdc 2, sc 2, hdc 2, sc 1. Sl st to close. [8 sts total]
Pull the ring closed tightly, cut leaving a long tail for sewing. Sew the first one to the body. Use black embroidery thread to sew a small nose and mouth on the second one. Sew on to the Head in the same fashion as the Belly.

The pattern for the “Inner Ears” is really simple, but this one feature is so defining for Rilakkuma, he’s just a regular bear without them!

Inner Ears
In a MR, sc 4 times. 
Make 2. Pull ring tightly closed and cut a long tail. Sew the Inner Ears onto the Outer Ears and Head, before or after the Ears are attached - which ever way is simpler for you!

All About Ami: The Fluff Bears: Coco & Mochi

allaboutami:

Two years ago Ryan and I came across some white eyelash yarn while shopping at Michaels, and we decided to pick it up along with some other yarn since we thought it would be so cute to make a fluffy bear! I’m embarrassed to admit that this white eyelash yarn remained in a Michaels bag on a shelf…

An adorable tutorial for fluffy little bears! Check it out and make your own set for Christmas! They’d make great gifts!
