I found out today that I needed a few Christmas gifts for tomorrow (I wasn't able to get together with a friend before the holidays), and for my friend's daughter, I bought a learn to crochet kit. But, it seemed a bit lacking in the excitement factor (hard to believe, I know), so I crocheted up an example of something that she can learn how to make.

I named him Mr. Minty, because I used mint green yarn (it was handy) for his hair... yes, I am clever  Wink



After I finished him, and gave his pom-pom hair a trim, he was lacking in some way. I put his eyes up a bit higher than I should have, and he had a bit too much face... so I made him a nose...



I like him much better now...  Grin

And, I didn't use a pattern, but I took notes as I went, so I can type them out later if anyone wants...

Here's the pattern! It hasn't been tested by anybody else, so if you find any problems, please let me know so I can make corrections.

Mr. Minty Amigurumi

Materials used:
Small amount of worsted weight acrylic yarn (white for body, mint green for hair)
Size G crochet hook
Pair of 12 mm plastic safety eyes
Yarn needle
Small amount of polyester fiberfil

Notes: Mr. Minty is worked in a spiral. Do not join at the end of each round. I use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch of each round.

Directions:
Start with a magic ring. Great instructions for a magic ring can be found here.

Body
Round 1: 6 sc into ring. (6 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around. (12 sc)
Round 3: * 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc. Repeat from * around. (18 sc)
Round 4: *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 2 sc. Repeat from * around. (24 sc)
Round 5: *2sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 sc. Repeat from * around. (30 sc)
Round 6: In FRONT LOOP ONLY, 1 sc in each sc around. (30 sc)
Rounds 7-16: 1 sc in each sc around (30 sc)
Round 17: *1 sc in each of next 3 sc, sc 2 together for a decrease. Repeat from * around. (24 sc)
Round 18: *1 sc in each of next 2 sc, sc 2 together for a decrease. Repeat from * around. (18 sc)
Round 19: * 1 sc in next sc, sc 2 together for a decrease. Repeat from * around. (12 sc)

Insert eyes (or embroider features) and  stuff body. Mr. Mintys eyes are inserted into Round 16.

Round 20: *1 sc in next sc, sc 2 together for a decrease. Repeat from * around. (6 sc)
Round 21: 1 sc in next sc, sc 2 together for a decrease. Repeat from * around.  Finish off leaving tail to. Add more stuffing, if needed. Use tail to weave opening closed. Lose tail ends in the body.

Nose
Start with a magic ring.

Round 1: 6 sc into ring. (6 sc)
Round 2: *1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat from * around. (9 sc)
Rounds 3-5: 1 sc in each stitch around. (9 sc)
Finish off, leaving tail to sew to body. Sew nose to body slightly below the eyes. Lose tail ends in the body.

Hair
Make a pom-pom for the hair, and sew to top of the head. Lose tail ends in the body.

if the hair was orange, it would look like Beeker from the Muppets.

I considered orange, but she's more of a pastel kind of girl Wink Maybe I'll have to make another one with orange hair...

A pattern for Mr. Minty? Please, yes.

It will give me a start, the same as the daughter who received him - to practice how to crochet.

I'll try to type it out this week. I have a couple of baby shower gifts to make for Saturday, so after I finish those, I should be able to do it... unless I procrastinate... which has been known to happen (far too often, unfortunately).
