When I first started to make amigurumi dolls, I had a very difficult time finding exactly what I was looking for, a basic pattern of the person/human/humanoid shape that I could freestyle details on. After I got the hang of amigurumi, I decided to make my own basic person pattern to work from. It has been very successful for me, and I have used it many times. So, I am finally confident enough to share my pattern with all of you. I normally use a 3.5mm or 4mm hook, but it should work with any small size.

Basic Person Pattern

Head & Body

Head & Neck
Ch 2 (or use magic ring)
Rnd 1 In 2nd ch, 6sc
Rnd 2 2sc in each sc
Rnd 3 & 4 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 5-8 sc around
Rnd 9-10 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next 2 sc, repeat
Rnd 11 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 12&13 sc around

Body (continue without finishing off)
Rnd 14 2sc in each sc
Rnd 15 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 16-30 sc around
Rnd 31 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next 2 sc, repeat
Rnd 32&33 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next sc, repeat
Finish off. Leave length.

Arms
(make 2)

Ch 2 (or use magic ring)
Rnd 1 In 2nd ch, 6sc
Rnd 2 2sc in each sc
Rnd 3 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 4-5 sc around
Rnd 6 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 7-21 sc around
Finish off. Leave length.

Legs
(make 2)

Ch 2 (or use magic ring)
Rnd 1 In 2nd ch, 6sc
Rnd 2 2sc in each sc
Rnd 3 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 4 2sc in first sc, sc in next 2sc, repeat
Rnd 5-7 sc around
Rnd 8 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next 2 sc, repeat
Rnd 9 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 10-26 sc around
Finish off. Leave length.

[Note: the above is for the skinnier leg I used for Nightcrawler. I like it better and am going to use it from now on. For a fatter leg, use the changes below]

Rnd 8 sc next 2sc tog, sc in next sc, repeat
Rnd 9-26 sc around
Finish off. Leave length.

Then, you just sew it all together with a yarn needle. You can change your yarn colors however you want and add whatever extras you'd like onto your completed doll. Personally, I like to use embroidery floss for hair and beads for eyes.

Here's some of the completed amis I've made using this basic pattern.



I hope that this helps someone out there. I'd love to see any finished products made using this pattern. Happy crafting!  Grin

Thank you so much for this! I'm just starting out with Amigurumi and figuring out how to adapt patterns to make other things. Your pattern will be a big help. Smiley

YES!! Thank you! I've been needing this. Human bodies are the one thing i'm terrible at making, so I avoid them. This will come in handy. First up: something for my boyfriend, who i'll be seeing next friday.YAY!


and of course these guys can be made bigger by using a larger hook, orby doubling/tripling/quadrupling the amount of stitches at the end of each row. Smiley

awesome.

How did you make the boots and the arms n the blue one?

I love the dolls you have made I wish I could get that Harry Potter doll!

I don't have a pattern for him. He was one of my first amis. I do remember approximately what I did though. I chained until I liked the length it was around his neck for the top of the robe. Then I added 2sc to the second and second to last sc of every other row until it was long enough. Near the end, I may have added it to every third row. I can't really remember. For the burgundy lining, I just sc all the way around. I recommend making the body and legs first, then continually wrapping the robe around every so often to make sure you are getting the right size and shape. If it starts to get too wide, just add an extra row of sc between increasing rows.

For the sleeves of the robe, I did the same exact thing, then whip stitched the sides together to give it a wide pointed sleeve at the end.

I sewed the arms into the sleeves, then sewed the sleeves directly onto the robe. For a little added touch, I did a few rows of sc in white and sewed it to his wrist to make it look like there was a cuffed shirt underneath.
