My son loves Lego. I love Lego. I was unable to find a pattern for a Lego Minifigure so I created one on my own and wrote out the pattern.  I thought even a rough pattern would be helpful to someone looking for one rather than no pattern. I'm not saying this is the best way or the fastest way to make a Lego minifigure, but it is the way I made one and just to throw a kink into it, and as full warning, I have to tell you that I have never written out a crochet pattern before...).

Red Heart Super Saver Yarn - Cherry Red
Red Heart Super Saver Yarn - Lemon (yellow)

Hook H/8 - 5.00 mm
4 12mm safety eyes (two will be used for the eyes and two will be used for the arm/shoulder joints)
Blunt tipped yarn needle to stitch pieces together
Plastic Canvas
Poly-fill or other stuffing

MR - Magic Ring
SC - Single Crochet
SL - Slip Stitch
BL - Back Loop
FL - Front Loop
sc2tog - decrease
invdec - Invisible Decrease (can also use sc2tog instead)
2SC - 2 single crochet stitches in one stitch
FO - Finish Off

Step 1: Lego Minifigure Head

Head -  using your YELLOW yarn
Stitch through both loops unless otherwise directed

MR, chain 1
1. 6 SC in ring
2. 2SC in each SC (12)
3. (2st, SC) 6 times (18)
4. (2st, SC, SC) 6 times (24)
5. (Optional. This puts a small rim around the top knob of the Lego head. If skipping, move on to round 6) in FL only, SL in each (24)
6. In BL only of round 4, SC in each (24)
7. SC in each (24)
8. In FL only (2st, SC, SC, SC) 6 times (30)
9. (SC, SC, 2st, SC, SC) 6 times (36)
10. (2st, SC, SC, SC, SC, SC) 6 times (42)
11. In BL only, SC in each (42)
12. (SC, SC, SC, 2st, SC, SC, SC) 6 times (48)
13-23. SC in each (48)
24. In BL only, (sc2tog, SC) 16 times (32)
25.In both loops, (sc2tog, SC) 10 times then sc2tog (21)
26. In FL only, SC in each (21)
27 - 28. SC in each (21)
SL in next stitch (this last stitch will mark the back of the head). FO leaving a long yarn tail to attach head to body.

Attach Safety Eyes to the head: on the front of the head (opposite the yarn tail) place the eyes just above the middle of the head (between rows 14 and 15) and in line with the outer edges of the top knob. Mine had 5 stitches between each eye. I recommend positioning both eyes BEFORE securing the backs to them.

Use your yarn needle and black yarn to stitch a smile on. Then firmly stuff with poly-fill.
I'm attempting to make one from your awesom pattern, but I'm having trouble with the hands. Ca you explain more or have more pictures of them please?
The hands are just rectangle that are crocheted in such a way so the edges &quot;turn up&quot;. When you attach them to the wrists and arms. They hold their shape on their own but can get smooshed and flattened during play. After playing with them, the hands will need to be manipulated back into the normal &quot;lego hand&quot; shape.<br><br>You can try the instructions on my blog (which should be the same as on Instructables). http://www.littlehouseincolorado.com/2011/12/pattern-for-amigurumi-crochet-lego.html<br><br>However, I also have a separate page talking about the hands: http://www.littlehouseincolorado.com/2011/12/amigurumi-lego-mini-figure-hands-and.html<br><br>Not sure specifically which part you are having trouble with but perhaps these can help. Good luck!
A true fan always shows their colors. Nice job :)
oh my gosh that is so <em><strong>AWSOME!!</strong></em>
Thank you everyone! I really appreciate the positive comments! It's very encouraging...motivates me into coming up with another pattern :)
This has the monsterlego seal of approval.
Oh, my word, that is simply brilliant!
