Hi there!

Whip out your crochet hook and summon your coziest


chair! The crochet spells in this brand-new collection will
work their magic to bring 14 fantastical amigurumi to life!

Our annual amigurumi design contest hosted on


www.amigurumipatterns.net inspired designers from all
over the world to hatch their very own magical amigurumi.
14 charming creatures from all corners of your
imagination will now spirit you away to their magical
world. But be careful not to leave your yarn case open:
we wouldn't want Harriet the Pegasus come crashing
through the roof, or Drake the Dragon accidentally setting
your new book on fire! Luckily Lily the Water Nymph is
always there to lend a helping hand, and Pinch the Goblin
can fix anything in exchange for a crochet coin.

Beginners as well as advanced crocheters can conjure up


these adorable fantasy creatures with a swish and flick
of their hooks. All patterns are accompanied by
easy-to-follow instructions as well as explanations of all
stitches used. They are easily customizable, so it’s a small
step to imagine your very own enchanting amigurumi!

Have you made a character and do you want to share


your work and passion for amigurumi with your fellow
crochet fans? We'd love to see your photos on
facebook.com/Amigurumipatterns.net or on
Instagram with #fantasyamigurumi.

We wish you a lot of fun crocheting!

explained on the next pages you can make all of the
amigurumi in this book. I suggest you practice the basic
stitches before you start making one of the designs.
This will help you to read the patterns and abbreviations
more comfortably without having to browse back to 3 4
these pages.
Chain
CHAIN (abbreviation: ch)
This stitch is the basis for many crochet patterns. If
you’re working in rows, your first row will be a series of
chain stitches. Use the hook to draw the yarn through 1

SINGLE CROCHET (abbreviation: sc) 4

Single crochet is the stitch that will be most frequently


used in this book. Insert the hook into the next stitch (1)
and wrap the yarn over the hook. Pull the yarn through
the stitch (2). You will see that there are now two loops 5
on the hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook again and
draw it through both loops at once (3). You have now

You can now begin your second round by crocheting

FRONT LOOPS ONLY (abbreviation: FLO)


or BACK LOOPS ONLY (abbreviation: BLO)
When making a crochet stitch, you end up with two loops
Front loops or back loops only
at the top of the stitch, a front loop towards you (1) and
a back loop (2). When asked to crochet FLO or BLO you
make the same stitch but leave one loop untouched.

BACK POST OR FRONT POST CROCHET


(abbreviation: BPsc, FPsc, BPdc, FPdc) back post front post

To make a back post or front post single or double Back post or front post crochet
crochet stitch, insert the hook from right to left around
the vertical post of the next stitch according to the pic-
ture. Finish the single or double crochet stitch as usual.
STITCHES 13

CROCHETING IN THE BACK RIDGE OF A CHAIN


1 Usually you crochet in the front side of the chain, which
looks like a series of interlocking V's (1). When you turn
your chain, you'll see a small 'hump' on the back side
of each stitch (2 - marked in blue). Insert your hook
2
under this hump and continue as usual.

BOBBLE STITCH
Crocheting in the back ridge of a chain
The bobble stitch creates a soft dimensional bobble in
your crochetwork. Think of it as a cluster of dc stitches
worked in the same stitch. Bring your yarn over the
hook from back to front before placing the hook in the
stitch (1). Wrap the yarn over the hook and draw the
1 2
yarn through the stitch. You now have three loops on
the hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook again and pull it
through the first two loops on the hook. One half-closed
double crochet is complete, and two loops remain on
the hook (2). In the same stitch, repeat the preceding
3
steps twice. You should have four loops on your hook.
Wrap the yarn over your hook and draw the yarn
Bobble stitch
through all four loops on the hook (3). One 3-dc-bobble
stitch is complete. Create a bobble stitch with as many
dc stitches as indicated in the pattern.

1 PICOT STITCH

Make 3 chain stitches. Insert your hook in the first
chain stitch you made (1), wrap the yarn around your
hook and draw it through both loops on the hook. One
picot stitch is complete (2).

Use a slip knot to tie the yarn onto the crochet hook.

Nessie is Scotland’s famous monster of Loch Ness. Despite her fame,


she’s extremely shy and spends most of her time underwater, playing chess with the fish.
She’s also an avid butterfly watcher and the inventor of several periscopes,
created so that she can watch the butterflies in peace.

Griffy

A design by SABRINA SOMERS

For many years people doubted the existence of griffins, but Griffy's appearance proves them
wrong! He's part lion, part eagle and although he lives in the forest, his love for gold often prompts
him to go on a little trip, so you can also spot him at the jewelry stores and banks in the city.

Emily the little mermaid

connie Nilsson/kcegeby@live.dk/2018-07-26 12:08

A design by LIA ARJONO

On one of her many adventures on the seabed, Emily found a magic mirror that shows her the world on land.
She already knew that humans walked around on two legs, but she had no idea that they could do much more,
like play leapfrog or hopscotch, tap dance or run around in three-legged races. She's now working hard to
invent mermaid-versions of these games, such as leapfish, tail dance and the three-finned race.

Koji the dragon is a true bookworm, though he has to be careful not to set his books on fire with
his fiery breath. He loves to read fantasy novels and medieval stories, especially the ones with
brave and strong dragons in them! One day, he wants to become a novelist himself, so he can
improve the image of dragons in literature and make them the real heroes of the story.

Have you ever seen a water lily in a pond or brook? That means you might have seen
Lily the Water Nymph as well! Lily is a divine water spirit protecting fountains, wells and springs.
Rumor has it she was last spotted in Claude Monet's pond in Giverny, and that she inspired him
to paint the world-famous water lilies series.

Cargo

fairy

connie Nilsson/kcegeby@live.dk/2018-07-26 12:08

A design by Sedef Bay (Kedi Peri Atölyesi)

Cargo is a sweet little fairy. Even though she doesn't talk much, you can spot her around the
forest all autumn, looking for new conversations to listen to or new jokes to giggle with.
Now she's eavesdropping the squirrels, ten minutes later she's having a laugh with the ferns and
what do you know, she's quietly sharing some light gossip with the morel mushrooms.

Drakethe dragon

connie Nilsson/kcegeby@live.dk/2018-07-26 12:08

A design by MOJI-MOJI DESIGN (JANINE HOLMES)

Drake is a sweet and cuddly dragon and a loyal friend to all who show him kindness.
But beware! If anybody should dare to be mean he has a tendency to get a bit hot under the
collar and he will use his finely formed nostrils to shoot out a fireball or two as a warning.
However, you’ll be pleased to know that this is quite a rare occurrence and he mostly uses his
fiery talents for hosting awesome barbeques and toasting marshmallows.

A design by DIY FLUFFIES

Kiki is small, yet courageous! She volunteers with the local firefighting department
and she's always ready to head out at the first ring of a distress call. Knowing the hazards
of fire like the back of her wing, Kiki is unafraid, and even if she should catch fire herself
one day, she'll simply burst out of the ashes again.
