Greetings, Crafty Friends! It's Free Pattern Friday Again! I'm thrilled to have you back for another exciting edition of Free Pattern Friday! Today, I've got something truly magical in store for you – the Little Witch Amigurumi Pattern. It's a perfect project for both beginners and those with a bit more crochet experience, resulting in an adorable witch plush that stands approximately 8.5 inches tall.

In our Halloween pattern series, I've already brought you the charming Pumpkin Bear and the lovable Little Frankenstein. Now, it's time to conjure up the enchantment of a cute little witch! What's fantastic about this pattern is the room for creativity. You can make each Little Witch truly unique with different colors for their clothes, hair, and skin. Want to add a nose, lashes, blush, or a smile? Go for it! The possibilities are endless. Perhaps the most bewitching aspect of this pattern is the hair. At first glance, it may seem intricate, but once you get the hang of it, you'll find it surprisingly easy and, dare I say, enjoyable! The end result is a mesmerizing mane that adds personality and charm to your Little Witch.

So, gear up, grab your crochet hooks, and let's embark on a crafting adventure that's sure to enchant your Halloween decorations this year. I can't wait to see the magical Little Witches you'll conjure up. Be sure to share your creations on social media, and don't forget to tag me so I can admire your work!

Rounds 5-10: sc around [6]

Tie off, leaving a long tail for sewing. I usually only stuff the hand part, but you can stuff a little or as much of the arm as you want!


Assembly:

-Attach the head to the body, with the last rounds facing together. Make sure to add stuffing as you sew it, so the head doesn't flop around… unless you want that, and that’s totally okay if you do!


-Attach the arms to either side of the body. I like to do mine at a slight angle, instead of straight up and down, with the thumbs pointed towards each other. Then attach the legs so that your witch is in a sitting position. I’m not super exact with the placement, but I usually pin the arms and legs into place and adjust them until I’m happy with the placement.


-Pin the bottom piece of hair to the head, with either end at about 5 rows above the eyes and 2-3 stitches to the sides of the eyes. Sew down the entire length of hair before moving on to the next piece. Place the middle piece of hair 2-3 rows above the bottom piece, with the ends 2 stitches back from where the ends of the bottom piece are. After that, place the top piece 3 rows above the middle piece, with the ends lining up with the bottom piece’s ends. When all three hair pieces are attached, it’s time to add the fringe pieces and then you are all done with the hair!



-Add the hat on top of the cute little bald spot and sew it down, I like to leave mine un-stuffed so I can bend and wrinkle it sometimes, but you can stuff it to keep it standing tall if you want!




-After that, you are all finished with your cute little witch!
