Does anyone happen to know where I could get a free or cheap pattern for an amigurumi roach?

I have three Giant Roaches as pets and I'd like to honor them lol.

Teehee! I read the title and instantly had an imagining.

I haven't seen one, but a pattern wouldn't be too hard to fix up.

Post pics? I just wanna see them, mostly.

They're still only babies at the moment, so only about an inch and a half long.


I'm totally besotted with them! They'll live about another 6 years or so, and the two girls will have about 20 babies each in about three years. Eventually they'll be about 6 inches long.

I don't know they'd stay still long enough to sweater them, and how to get the sleeves over 18 knees....

I think a cockroach pattern would be fun too!  Cockroaches are a very important part of a children's book series that I am totally in love with.  In it the Cockroaches are big enough for people to ride!  The first book in the series is Gregor the Overlander.  Of course if I follow the story line, I would need a rat and a bat pattern to go with it! Wink  Could you make a wide tube that is closed at both ends?  Or would it be better to make like a little pillow?  How would you make legs?

Hrm, I'm thinking... kind of an elongated sphere for the underside, with a flattened elongated circle for the upper shell, with a small ball for the head... I might have to have a go.. maybe. I'm still way new at crochet!

The legs I think could be done around wire, with some decreasing at the top to give them shape, then even just wrapped wire or a row of single to the feet.

I found a picture of a crochet cockroach on a blog.  The lady doesn't give a tutorial or pattern, but I thought a picture of a complete project might help.  It's huge so it's probably not necessarily amigurumi, but it is cute.  You will have to scroll down a little to see it.

Yes, this will work. Just take proportions from that picture and make it the size you would like to.
