Basic Funko Inspired Amigurumi Doll Crochet Pattern

Basic Funko Inspired Amigurumi Doll Crochet Pattern

This pattern was born out of love for Funko pop collectibles and my growing addiction to collecting them. Often I wanted plush dolls of them but to be honest they never have the characters I like.

So what happens when you can’t find something but you are crafty and geeky? Yep. You make it yourself. So now I have a small army expanding and overtaking my bedroom slowly but surely. It’s pretty awesome to be honest.  I have mock-ups for some of my favorite fandoms and characters swirling around in my head.  What can you imagine?

But we all start somewhere… here is the base for the Funko inspired dolls I have been created. Shown completed here as Mowgli (because naked dolls are oddly disturbing to me). If you can work in the round and do single crochet, you can make this doll. No fancy stitches and he is hug approved.  My dolls done with when Medium (4- weight Caron one-pounder) yarn and a H hook came to just over 11 inches tall when completed.

Basic Funko Inspired Amigurumi Doll Crochet Pattern Pieces to Assemble

Doll Assembly:
You should have:

  • 1 doll head
  • 1 doll body
  • 2 doll legs
  • 2 doll arms

I normally start with the legs and work my way up.

Check your stuffing to make sure desired firmness before taking a yarn needle and the yarn tail on one leg use it to fasten your doll’s leg in desired location on body. (You can see my pictures to see how I placed mine to reflect the Funko characters.)  Once done, repeat with second leg.

You are then going to repeat process with the dolls arms. Check for stuffing firmness. Not packed tight but not deflated and sew in place. Pull yarn tail to inside and cut off.

Now we come to the head. There are a couple of things you want to do here before you attach the head. This pattern is for the basic so I will stick to most important but I do want to let you know it is important to stop here if you want to do any additionally embroidery on face, coloring etc before head is attached. It makes it much easier.

If you have your eyes in place, head stuffed and are ready to go, move on to this step. Take your yarn tail from the head and yarn needle to secure your head in desired position on top of the opening of the doll body.  

To make heads less floppy when doing large hair, I attach the joining and run another round out on the head.

There is your doll. Feel free to decorate it, dress, add hair, clothing, change colors up. However you wish.

I have a small army that I have been working on that includes characters from Marvel, video games and Disney. I am pretty excited to share them with you when done. So keep tuned and please drop and share your creations from the pattern base. I would love to see what you create with it.
