Amigurumi Molang Pattern



Meet Molang(image found on google.com)! He is a chubby bunny with rosy cheeks and an innocent smile. He looks like a marshmallow because he is so fat, but that's what makes him cute and huggable.
I love Molang and wanted to crochet a small version of him to give to some of my friends as gifts. Looking at pictures of him on Google, I realized that Molang is a simple and easy character to turn into an amigurumi due to his simple shape and expression.

To make Molang, I used white yarn, a 3.75mm crochet hook, 2 plastic eyes, a tiny bit of pink yarn, a tiny bit of black yarn, and a tiny bit of fluffy white yarn.

First, I made the body:

Then the ears and limbs (note: the pattern for both the ears and the limbs is the same)


To finish off Molang, I pinned and sewed his ears and limbs to the body then sewed on his tail with the white fluffy yarn by sewing in several stitches at the back of his body:



For Molang's face, I used the pink yarn to give his perfectly flushed cheeks and the black yarn to embroider his "w" or ㅅ shaped mouth.


Tada! Molang is done! The size of my Molang is quite petite and can fit comfortably in one's hand, but if you wanted to make your Molang bigger and more huggable, you could use chunky yarn and a bigger hook to achieve an even chubbier Molang.

Here is the pattern! :)
Materials

  • 3.75mm crochet hook
  • White yarn
  • Tiny bit of pink yarn
  • Tiny bit of black yarn
  • Two small plastic safety eyes
  • Stuffing
  • Jumbo sewing needle

Rnd 1: 6 sc in MC(magic circle) (6sts)
Rnd 2: sc 2 in every st around. (12 sts)
Rnd 3: (sc1, inc in the next st) rep around. (18 sts)
Rnd 4: (sc 2, inc in next st) rep around. (24 sts)
Rnd 5: (sc 3, inc in next st) rep around. (30 sts)
Rnd 6-13: sc in every st around. (30 sts)

Rnd 14: (sc 3, dec) rep around. (24 sts)

Rnd 16: (sc 1, dec) rep around. (12 sts)
Rnd 17: (dec) rep around. (6sts)

Ears (make 2):
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic circle. 
Rnd 2-4: sc in every st around. (6sts)
BO with long tail for sewing

Limbs(make 4):
Repeat same pattern for ears.

Finishing:
  • Without stuffing, sew the limbs and ears to the body. 
  • With fluffy yarn, sew tail at the back of the body by layering multiple horizontal stitches.
  • With pink yarn, sew small horizontal stitches to make rosy cheeks. 
  • With black yarn, sew "w" or ㅅ shaped mouth. 
  • Weave in all loose ends.

Watermelon Pouch!

Hi everyone! Long time no post! I know I said I would try to post more often, but I have been really busy this summer with traveling and other summer activities. However, I have found more time to crochet these days, so hopefully, there will be more posts. :)

For my friend's upcoming birthday, I wanted to make her a pouch. So using this pattern by Sarah of RepeatCrafterMe, I began making her watermelon coin purse.

In the original pattern, Sarah recommends using a sharp crochet hook to directly insert the hook into the zipper to begin the pouch, but I just used my regular 2.20mm crochet hook to pierce through my zipper, and it worked just fine. This watermelon pouch pattern is super quick and easy!

The materials I used were:

  • Green zipper
  • Green, Pink,White yarn
  • Black beads
  • 2.20mm crochet hook


To begin the pouch, I used green yarn and a green zipper

Then I changed to white yarn, then to pink yarn!

Almost done!

Once I finished the pouch, I sewed on little black beads to replicate the black watermelon seeds!

Tada! All done!

I hope you guys enjoyed this short post! Until my next post, happy crocheting and crafting!
