Who doesn't love The Labyrinth? Especially the little worm who says "ello" instead of "hello" am I right? He's just so cute! And his transformation into an amigurumi also turned out cute!

He was a two night project for me. Maybe two or three hours each night, though that may have been because I did his face once, disliked it, and redid it. But I think he turned out cute in the end! (I may have mentioned that already...)



     



Here's the pattern. I do have some general disclaimers on it, since it hasn't been tested... but to read more about that you can see my original blog post here: http://mostlynerdycrochet.blogspot.com/2011/08/ello-did-you-just-say-hello.html which also has my contact information if you have questions.

“Ello” Labyrinth Worm
Magic circle with 6 sc (in blue)
Increase to 12
Inc every 3rd stitch for 2 rows
Sc 7=rows
1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 hdc, sl st around the rest of the row, repeat one more time

Switch color to a pale yellow
1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 hdc, sl st around the rest of the row, repeat 3 times
Sc 12=rows
1 Inc on either side of the face (for cheeks) sc in between- Repeat for one more row
dec every 3rd stitch for 1 row
Fill with polyfill before the opening gets too small!
Dec every other stitch for about 2 rows, then dec every stitch until closed

Hair – darker blue than the body for contrast
Slip stitch several strands of yarn at the top of the head and down the body. Separate the strands for a good fluff. (There will be 17 bits of fluff all together. Top of head and cheek fluff is longer than the rest).
I added some of the darker blue up his back and on the top of his head almost like embroidery (only with yarn).

Scarf - Use an orangey red thin yarn (or thick thread)
Ch approximately 15 inches, turn and DC down the length. Weave in the ends. Loosely tie around the neck (I wrapped mine twice).

Face: I used a dark orange (almost a light brown) embroidery thread for the eyes. Bits of black of course for the pupils/nose/mouth, nothing too fancy!




Thanks for looking!

Whoa there's another one? (Quickly searches) NEAT! I love seeing how different people do their amigurumi! Wow, and here I was thinking that people needed to be reminded of the awesome that is The Labyrinth. I'm glad it has not been forgotten!

Very cute, I'm thinking i'm going to have to make him. My munchkin has decided that labyrinth is practically the only movie to watch anymore and loves that little worm Smiley

Gotta be honest, the Worm always kinda creeped me out. He's cute in Amigurumi form though!
