Toothless amigurumi pattern


Here is my free pattern for my Toothless amigurumi -- while I designed and created everything in this photo, the instructions for the wings and tail fins that I post here were finalized by other people who kindly allowed me to share them, as I felt they worked better than mine, and the tail is a free pattern from another crochet blog, credited below. Please feel free to make as many Toothlesses for yourself or for your friends as you like, I only ask that you PLEASE do not produce these to sell for profit on sites like Etsy, or claim/sell the pattern as your own, since I worked very hard on this to share for free and because some parts of the pattern are kindly provided by people other than myself. Thank you for understanding! 

THE PATTERN!
I used worsted weight yarn and a size F/3.75 mm hook. I was able to make all the pieces with 1 skein of Vanna's Choice yarn. 

Important: in the instructions for the body, when I say "inc 2,"
I mean single crochet 3 into the same single crochet, so you are
essentially increasing by two stitches in the same stitch instead of
one.

Body:
R1. MR (6)
R2. Sc 2 in each sc around (12)
R3. (Sc 1, inc 1) 6 times around (18)
R4. (Sc 2, inc 1) 6 times around (24)
R5. (Sc 3, inc 1) 6 times around (30)
R6. (Sc 4, inc 1) 6 times around (36)
R7-8. Sc around
R9. Sc 12, dec 6, sc 12 (this is what shapes Toothless's butt) (30)
R10. Sc around
R11. (Sc 3, dec 1) 6 times around (24)
R12-13. Sc around
R14. (Sc 4, dec 1) 4 times around (20)
R15. Sc around
R16. (Sc 3, dec 1) 4 times around (16)

Fasten off, you don't need to leave a long tail for sewing. Stuff the body.

Head:
R1. MR (6)
R2. Sc 2 in each sc around (12)
R3. (Sc 1, inc 1) 6 times around (18)
R4. (Sc 2, inc 1) 6 times around (24)
R5. (Sc 3, inc 1) 6 times around (30)
R6. (Sc 4, inc 1) 6 times around (36)
R7. Sc around
R8. (Sc 5, inc 1) 6 times around (42)
R9. (Sc 6, inc 1) 6 times around (48)
R10-11. Sc around
R12. Sc 23, inc 2 in next 2 sc, sc 23 (52)
R13. Sc around
R14. Sc 25, inc regularly in the next 2 sc, sc 25. (54)
R15. (Sc 7, dec 1) 6 times around (48)
R16. (Sc 6, dec 1) 6 times around (42)
R17. (Sc 5, dec 1) 6 times around (36)
R18. (Sc 4, dec 1) 6 times around (30)
R19. (Sc 3, dec 1) 6 times around (24)
R20. (Sc 4, dec 1) 4 times around (20)
R21. (Sc 3, dec 1) 4 times around (16)
R22. Sc around

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing, then stuff the head. When
you stuff the head, you will need to do a lot of shaping. The
increases in rounds 12 and 14 give Toothless a bit of a point in the
front of his face, but until you stuff and shape the head it looks
pretty weird. I usually put more stuffing in the back of his head, a
bit less in the front, but enough in the point of his "snout" so that
it's clearly there.

I like to sew the body and the head together at this point. He has a
thin little neck so I usually skewer him from head to bottom with a
long knitting needle, it keeps everything in place.

*Toes: To make a toe, HDC 5 in the same st. When you finish the fifth
HDC, remove your hook from the loop, loosen the loop, reinsert your
hook into the first HDC, grab the loop you dropped and pull it through
the first HDC, like a slip stitch, then continue your round.

Front legs (make 2):
R1. MR (6)
R2. Sc 2 in each sc around (12)
R3. (Sc 1, inc 1) 6 times around (18)
R4. In BLO (except for the toes), sc 4, (Make toe*, sc 2) until you
have 4 toes with 2 sc's between each, sc 4.
R5. Sc around. You should still have 18 st. The toes take up a lot of
space and sometimes obscure stitches, especially the stitch right
before the toe, so those are easy to miss. If you have trouble seeing
it, just pull the toe to the left and you should be able to find it.
R6. (Sc 7, dec 1) 2 times around (16)
R7. Sc around
R8. (Sc 6, dec 1) 2 times around (14)
R9. (Sc 5, dec 1) 2 times around (12)
R10-12. Sc around
R13. (Sc 4, dec 1) 2 times around (10)

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Back legs (make 2):
R1. MR (6)
R2. Sc 2 in each sc around (12)
R3. (Sc 1, inc 1) 6 times around (18)
R4. In BLO (except for the toes), sc 4, (Make toe*, sc 2) until you
have 4 toes with 2 sc's between each, sc 4.
R5. Sc around.
R6. (Sc 7, dec 1) 2 times around (16)
R7. Sc around
R8. (Sc 6, dec 1) 2 times around (14)
R9-10. Sc around.

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. I prefer to sew the back
legs on before the front legs. When I stuff the front legs, I like to
stuff the bottoms and leave very little stuffing at the top, so the
legs can sit flatter against Toothless's front.

I sew all the way around the circumference of the back legs when
attaching them to the body, but when attaching the front legs I
typically squish the opening and sew the ends together as I sew them
on, if that makes sense. It's just another measure to make them
more flat.

Ears (make 2):
R1. MR (6)
R2. Sc 2 in each sc around (12)
R3-4. Sc around
R5. (Sc 2, inc 1) 4 times around (16)
R6-7. Sc around
R8. (Sc 3, inc 1) 4 times around (20)
R9-14. Sc around
R15. (Sc 3, dec 1) 4 time around (16)
R16-17. Sc around

Fasten off and leave a tail for sewing. You don't need to stuff the
ears, just squish them flat and sew them on.

Mini-horns (make 6):
R1. MR (6)
R2. (Sc 1, inc 1) 3 times around (9)
R3-5. Sc around

Fasten off and leave a tail for sewing. Two horns go between the ears
on the top of the head, and two horns on each side of his head.

Tail: I use the instructions from here:
http://mygurumi.blogspot.com/2009/08/only-to-show-you-im-still-here-post.html
and usually stop at round 15. You can make it shorter or longer if you
wish.

Wings (courtesy of Stitch Bitch):
ch 6, work sc in 2nd ch from hook and the one after it, sc 3 in next ch, sc 1 in each of the next 2 chs; ch1 and turn (7 sc)
sc in first 3 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts; ch1 and turn (9 sc)
sc in first 4 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts; ch4 and turn (11 sc)
sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 2 chs, sc in next 5 sts, 3sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, 3 foundation sc; (19 sc)
ch 1, and turn
sc in next 9 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 9 sts; fasten off (21 sc)

Tailfins (courtesy of TacticalGranny)
set A (base of tail near body):
Make two and attach to center line of tail near the body.
Ch 5, work sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc 3 in next ch, ss to last ch and fasten off.

Tailfins set B (end of tail):
Make two black, or make one black, one red. Red goes on the left side of tail when the tail is facing you.
Row 1: Ch 5, work sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 2 ch, inc in last ch; ch 1 and turn (5sc)
Row 2: sc in first 3sc, sc2tog in last 2 sc. ch 1 and turn. (4sc)
Row 3: sc in first 2sc, sc 3 in next sc, ss (slip stitch) to last sc. Place 2 more ss through ends of previous rows to form the curved shape at the end of the fin. Fasten off and attach to tail.

Eyes:
The acrylic felt that I used for the eyes can be purchased at Michaels, Jo-Ann's, AC Moore or any general craft store. You can find it in the kids craft section with the school craft supplies, pipe cleaners, pom-poms, popsicle sticks, etc. They come in small, individual sheets that cost about 25 cents apiece, so I buy plenty in case I need extra!

You can also use real felt if you desire, though I only have experience using the acrylic craft felt. I cut out the general shapes (you can right-click save the image provided at the top of this pattern and print it out and it should print to the correct scale, but it is just as easy to draw it yourself):

I use these scissors to cut out my eyes since they are small and precise. I fold the sheet of felt in half and cut out the general shape of the eye, a bit larger than I want it to be so I can cut it down, refine the shape and make the edges nicer. Folding it in half will give you two pieces that are generally the same shape, then you can cut them down and make them look nicer as I stated before. Do the same with the felt for the pupils.

Because of the bumpy texture of the crochet, I find that it is easier to use fabric glue to apply the eyes rather than sewing them on. The shape of the eye stays more consistent. I like to use Fabri-tac glue... be advised that it dries quickly and is quite permanent, so be careful when gluing your eyes on.

  9. Liz - yep, I just used the craft felt that they sell in small individual sheets.

    Akiwyn - MR is short for 'make ring', some patterns use the term 'ML' for 'make loop' or 'magic loop.' The technique is covered in this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvjYPFBP85c

  15. So far I've got a head, body, & all four legs stitched together, and I'm loving this pattern! I was tickled pink by the adorable toes! Now I'm working on the tail, but I'm having a lot of trouble with it. I posted a comment over on that site, but I thought I'd check here too, to see if anyone had any suggestions.
    Thanks so much for posting this amazing pattern!! I love Toothless and I can't wait to finish him!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is adorable and I can't wait to start it. I just had one question - how much yarn [roughly] is used? I want to know if I can just use what I have or if I'll need more.
    Thanks so much for the pattern!!

  18. So I've made everything but the wings because I have no idea what a formation stitch is...I've looked it up but I am teaching myself crochet and I must be missing something since they are all chainless and this project already has a base chain to follow before the foundation stitch... can anyone try explaining it to me? :/

  19. Aww, adorable! I had to make an account here to comment. I feel horrible for asking because I wouldn't want you to cut one of these cuties up just to make one.. but to you by chance have a sewing tutorial for this? I have ZERO skill with crochet or knitting... (though I haven't tried knitting, I still don't think I will). As much as I love the patterns I've found on DeviantArt for Toothless (and I've made two different ones), this one I just cannot resist making, but I only have a skill in sewing with fabrics.. hehe.

    Either way, this is adorable! My mother in law and crochet and knit, so maybe I'll ask her to make this for me. :)

  20. Can you explain this to me? I don't get the abrev. This is from the blog you referred to for the tail. Thanks.
    "make a double ring with 5 sc2 - m2, sc43 - sc1, m2,..." I don't get what (m stands for in m2. Absolutely adorable pattern by the way.

    1. M2 (make 2) is another way of saying increase by 1 in that stitch. M2 X2 means increase by 1 in next 2 stitches.

  35. 2 questions for you:

    how do you tell the front from the back of the head?

    which way do the fins go on the tail? I can't tell by the pic for both sets of fins.


    my ears seem really big compared to your pics, not sure what happened but I had to pull back a couple of row to get the same look.

    Thank you so much for the pattern! he is super cute and pretty easy/quick to do comparatively.

    Replies
    1. Hi there -- so sorry for the late reply! I don't know if you still need help at this point but anyway:

      The back of the head is rounder, and the front of the head has a bit of a "point" to it in the front, where you made the cluster of increases to create the snout.

      It's been a while, but if I remember correctly, I believe the tailfins go on the tail like this (if you're viewing the tail from above): http://i.imgur.com/Glkn45f.png

      The smaller end of the tailfin is closer to the body while the larger end is nearer to the tip of the tail.

      I hope that makes sense, and again, I'm so sorry for the delayed reply -- I don't get any kind of notifications of comments/questions on here so I always end up seeing them so late :( Anyway, I'm so glad you like the pattern otherwise!

    I wanna make this one for my little cousin. He will like it very much. Thank you for putting it out on the internet.

    But I don't understand the explanetion of the wings and the tailfins very good because it's another way to explain ;)
    Can you say it in your way, because that way i do understand. :)

    THANKS A LOT!!!!!

  40. Hi, I'm having a hard time trying to do the toes, I get confused with row 4 "R4. In BLO (except for the toes), sc 4, (Make toe*, sc 2) until you have 4 toes with 2 sc's between each, sc 4". Do you mean single crochet BLO for four stitches with two stitches in between ir BLO 2 stitches and have four stitches in between?

  52. Is it ok if I post a dutch translation of this pattern on my blog?
    Ofcourse with a reference to this page.
    I haven't tried it yet, but I can see from the replies it is easily understandable. So I will translate it for my self and try it out. If it works I would like to post it (for free ofcourse, as it isn't my own pattern) so other Dutch crochet fans can use it too.

I am a beginner and this had a lot more parts then any previous pattern than I have done. All in all the pattern was very easy to follow and he did turn our very cute.

    1. it's a contentious loop. No joining the rounds as it ends up looking like a spiral. Use markers to rememberer where you are in the pattern if it helps.

    1. Hi you can use fiberfill, scrap cloth or scrap wool to stuff your toy's with. But I might suggest fiberfill it's super cheap and oh so fluffy!

  70. Thank you for the free pattern. but i have a question. Having trouble understanding this line on the body..R9. Sc 12, dec 6, sc 12 (this is what shapes Toothless's butt) (30)
    It does not add up to 30

    1. sc 12 decrease (6x) sc12 and it should add up to 30 hope it helps

      Delete
    2. It doesn't add up to 30, and it makes the body a funny shape. What I did was sc15, dec 6, sc 15 (30). And it added up nicely for me!

      Delete
    3. You may be misunderstanding the directions.
      The row you will crochet into has 36 stitches. When you dec 6 (sc2tog 6 times) you have decreased 12 of those stitches into 6.
      {SC 12, dec (6x), SC 12} gives you 30 stitches for that row. 12+6+12=30.
      Hope this helps.

    1. The 4th line doesnt say anything about 9sc, it´s the fifth and it says: 9sc, 3 sc in next st, another 9sc and finish.

  73. Hello everybody! Having seen all the chaos caused by the wings and other parts of this pattern, I have started a blog where I explain (pictures included) how I did the wings and the mistakes I made before succeeding. I hope the owner of sarselgurumi likes this idea :) I will keep updating the blog with every problem I face making toothless, as well as many other amigurumis. Enjoy! http://hoshiamigurumi.blogspot.com.es/

    1. Can i ask where your having problems with?

      Delete
    2. This is probably more information than you need, but I'm not sure what part is problematic...
      R= rounds.
      (Sc 2, inc 1) 4 times around = crochet 1 sc in next 2 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch. Do this 4 times and you will be back at the start of your row having crocheted 16 stitches.
      R6-7. Sc around = crochet 1 sc in each stitch if the previous row. Because it says R6-7, you do it for 2 rows.

  79. Hi, just one little question :)
    What do you mean with " inc regularly in the next 2 sc," ?
    Does it mean the same like "inc 1" (in the next two sc)?
    I'm unfamiliar with the english crocheting words, and this is my third amigurumi, what means my experiences are not so high :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Yes. "Inc regularly in the next 2 sc" means that you only increase by 1 in those stitches. This was in the "Head" section just after rows where you "inc 2"... which means 3 stitches in those SCs.
    Don't feel bad. I've only done these in English but the terms can be confusing to me at times :)

  82. I made this for my sister for Christmas :). We both love Toothless! But, even if I hadn't been a Toothless fan, this pattern was the most fun I have ever had with a written pattern :)! I love all amigurami projects, but I usually enjoy it most if I make up my own pattern. But this one was so much fun, with neat techniques, simple to make, with just enough differences in the pieces that it didn't feel like I was doing the same two pieces over and over like some projects do :). His little toes and wings were especially fun to make :)!
    Thank you so much for this pattern!

  91. In having trouble with row three... I'm so confused as to what sc 1 inc 1 means and what do you mean when you say six times around? Do I have to do it for 6 stitches? Because if I do it all the way around to me starting point I get a much larger amount of stitches that what's indicated in the pattern, I'm so confused help please!

    1. Hi Seline
      "(Sc 1, inc 1 ) 6 times around "
      Sc1 means you crochet 1 sc in the first stitch. Inc 1 means you crochet 2 sc in the next stitch. Perform this 6 times and this row will end up with 18 stitches total.
      This is how the whole pattern is written. Inc 1 means you crochet 1 sc + an increase of 1 sc = 2 sc in that stitch.
      Using that basis, inc 2 = 3 sc in that stitch.
      Hope this helps!

    2. Thank you so much Becca! This helped a lot, is it the same for dec 1? Like do you have to sc 2 together for that one stitch? Like when in one of the rows it says dec 6 does it mean decrease for 6 stitches?

      Delete
    3. Yes, dec, aka decrease, is subtracting a stitch from a row by crocheting 2 sc together. When this pattern says to dec 6, it means that you will be performing the following steps 6 times.
      1.) insert your hook into the indicated stitch
      2.) Yarn over (yo) and draw the yarn through the stitch.
      You should have 2 loops on your hook
      3.) Insert your hook into the next stitch
      4.) Yarn over and pull through both loops.
      1 dec complete. Do this 6 times (or as many times as indicated)
      Best of luck! Feel free to email me with any additional questions as I'm not certain this site is monitored anymore
