Pusheen Amigurumi Crochet Pattern & Tutorial: Candy Corn Halloween

Like many people, I love to follow cute characters on Instagram and Pusheen is a long time favorite. This week this picture was in my feed and when I saw it, I fell in love! How freakin' adorable, right!? I just had to try to make my own Candy Corn Pusheen and I decided that if it was a success, I'd share my pattern with you! And here she is!
The pattern was a success so, as promised, here's the FREE patternThis pattern took me about 2 hrs to create, a fast crocheter might only need an hour to make this sweetie! 



Crochet Candy Corn Pusheen Pattern

Difficulty: ♡ Advanced Beginner 

This is a wonderful beginner's project but it does use a few advanced techniques: The magic ring, invisible decrease and a slip stitch join of the two halves. Planet June has a wonderful tutorial of how to do the invisible decrease and the magic ring


Materials You'll Need:
• Worsted weight yarn - I used White, Yellow and Orange
• Crochet hook - Size E (3.5 mm)
• Embroidery thread - Black
• 2 - 6 mm safety eyes
• Key chain or lanyard
• Stuffing - Polyfil
 Yarn or Darning Needle
• Scissors

Stitch Pattern Key
Rnd - Round
MR - Magic Ring (magic circle, magic loop)
st - Stitch
ch - Chain
sc - Single Crochet
sl st - Slip Stitch
inc - Increase (two sc in one)
dec - Decrease (Invisible Decrease recommended)
[##] - Number of stitches in Round
( ) x 6 - Repeat action within ( ) 6 times



Notes: Finished Size: 2.5" x 2" (6 cm x 5 cm)  ❤  I use the joined-round method of amigurumi, most people do not.  This pattern works for both spiral and joined rounds, use the method you are most comfortable with.
