Keroppi Amigurumi Pattern

Hey crochet friends! Welcome to another Free Pattern Friday! This time, we're crocheting this Keroppi amigurumi pattern!

This Keroppi amigurumi pattern is very low-sew, making it a quickly assembled plushie! This pattern does include some joining techniques that beginners may not be super familiar with, but I've tried to make the process as clear as possible. As always, if you need help with something, I'm always happy to help, either through email or dm on Instagram, <3

I'm so excited to share this cute little pattern with you all today! Keroppi is such a cute little character and I've been so excited to make and share his pattern for the longest time and now I finally get to share it with all of you lovely people!! Now let's grab our crochet hooks and start crafting, shall we?

In pink

Mr 6

Ss into first st and tie off, leaving a long tail for sewing.


In red

Into a magic ring loop, place a ch 2, 4 dc, ch 2. Ss into mr and repeat. Pull the tail to tighten mr and leave a long tail for sewing. Wrap the tail around the center of the bow a few times to give it that classic bow shape.


  • Start by attaching the head to the body, sewing through both loops of the last row of either piece. I like to pin the head first to be sure I’ve got it exactly how I want it before sewing it down.

  • Pin the eyes to the top of the head so they look slightly cross-eyed. I do not have exact places I put the eyes, I feel like it’s different on every plush, so I just pin them until I’m happy with how they look and then I sew them down.

  • Pin the blush spots about two rows under the eyes and then sew them down and embroider the mouth in a V shape.

  • Lastly, attach the bow in the very middle of the neck/chest area.

That’s it! Now you have your very own Keroppi plush friend!!
