Crochet Marshmallow Amigurumi

Now you can judge me by the books I read.


I went to an Etsy craft party a week ago and they had s'mores there. Towards the end of the night the caterers were giving away all the leftover food. They were handing out marshmallows so I grabbed a bag and the bag had these cute little marshmallows on them. (I had a picture but my phone got stolen so I lost all my pictures) I decided that these little marshmallows would make cute amigurumi. I have only made amigurumi once before and I've never tried to come up with a pattern myself so this is my first attempt. Use with caution and I hope you guys like it. 

I used a size J hook.

Chain 3, sl st into the first chain

Row 1- 6 SC in center of loop. Sl st to join

Row 2- 2 SC in each stitch, sl st join (12)

Row 3- 1 SC in first, 2 SC in second all the way around, sl st to join (18)

Row 4- 1 SC in next 2, 2 SC in third all the way around,  sl st to join (24)

Row 5- 1 SC in next 3, 2 SC in fourth, all the way around, sl st to join (30)

Row 6- 1 SC in next 4, 2 SC in fifth, all the way around, sl st to join (36)

Row 7-10- 1 SC in each stitch, sl st rounds together

Work in continuous rounds now

Row 11-21- 1 SC in each stitch, work in continuous rounds

I made the face at this point. I just used felt for the face so that I could give it Anime eyes. The face can be done any way you would like though. I also started stuffing at this point. 

Stop working in continuous rounds. 

Row 22-25- 1 SC in each stitch, sl st round to join

Row 26- 1 SC in next 4 stitches, 1 SC decrease (30)

Row 27- 1 SC in next 3 stitches, 1 SC decrease (24)

Row 28- 1 SC in next 2 stitches, 1 SC decrease (18)

Row 29- 1 SC in next stitch, 1 SC decrease (12)

There will be a hole in the top at this point. Finish off as you normally would and leave a length of yarn. Use this length of yarn to sew the top shut. I went through the top stitches and pulled it shut. 



I hope this pattern makes some kind of sense. I have not tested it. This is more just a way for me to share what I did. I'm sure I don't do things the "right" way.
