Step 1: Materials
- Yarn in various colors
- Yarn needle
- sc = single crochet;
- inc = increasing single crochet;
- dec = decreasing single crochet.
Step 2: Feet 1
Lets make "those pretty feet of yours". With black in a magic ring: 5 sc (5); 5 inc (10); *1 inc 4 sc** 2 time (12); 12 sc (12) for 4 rounds; *1dec 4 sc** 5 times (10); stuff the foot; 5 dec (5);
Step 3: Feet 2
Fasten off and sew the hole.
Step 4: Feet 3
Make 2 feet.
Step 5: Legs 1
With the color of the uniform make 2 legs: 10 ch and join with a slip stitch; 10 sc for 8 rounds.
Step 6: Legs 2
Fasten off the yarn of the first leg, but not the second.
Step 7: Legs 3
Keeping the legs close, crochet all around the sc of the last round of the legs. You have to change leg and continue to crochet on the other one.
Step 8: Legs 4
The inc are done on the belly and over the bum to give them a fluffy look, but you can change that, of course.
Step 9: Body 1
For the body: 18 sc (18) for 2 rounds; *8 sc 1 inc** 2 times (20); 20
sc; *9 sc 1 inc** 2 times (22); 22 sc for 5 rounds; *9 sc 1 dec** 2 times (20); *3 sc 1 dec** 4 times (16).
Step 10: Body 2
If you want, you can change the color to adds particulars to the amigurumi, In this case I've put a lighter blue waist band.
Step 11: Feet to Legs
Sew feet to the legs with hidden points.
Step 12: Stuff
Stuff legs (you can help the lining go in to the legs with a pen o pencil) and body.
Step 13: Neck
*2 sc 1 dec** 4 times (12); with pink *2 sc 1 dec** 3 times (9); 2 sc 1 dec 3 sc 1 dec (7); fasten off. The last rounds in pick are done so that it will be simpler to sew the body to the head.
Step 14: Arms 1
Arms (make 2): with pink make 6 sc in a magic ring.
Step 15: Arms 2
*2 sc 1 inc** 3 times (9); 9 sc (9); Change color in light blue.
Step 16: Arms 3
With blue 9 sc (9) for 9 rounds; Now work in rows (not in rounds): 6 sc; turn; 1 dec 2 sc 1 dec; fasten off. You can do this last part with lighter blue for T'Pol's uniform shoulder caps. Stuff.
Step 17: Arms & Body
Sew the arms to the body with hidden stitches.
Step 18: Head 1
Head: to make it easier to embroider the hair, I generally crochet a part of the head with the same color as the hair. For very short hair, it's generally enough the crochet part. In a magic ring: 6 sc (6)
Step 19: Head 2
Head: to make it easier to embroider the hair, I generally crochet a part of the head with the same color as the hair. For very short hair, it's generally enough the crochet part. In a magic ring: 6 sc (6); 6 inc (12); *1 inc 1 sc** for 6 times (18); *1 inc 2 sc** for 6 times (24); *1 inc 3 sc** for 6 times (30); *1 inc 4 sc** for 6 times (36); *1 inc 5 sc** for 6 times (42);
Step 20: Head 3
Now change color in pink, make 11 sc and change back in brown (42 sc total). Note that from this round you'll have to put one more pink crochet on each side. Go crocheting: 42 sc for 2 rounds.
Step 21: Head 4
*1 dec 5 sc** for 6 times (36); *1 dec 4 sc** for 6 times (30); *1 dec 3 sc** for 6 times (24); Stuff; *1 dec 2 sc** for 6 times (18); *1 dec 1 sc** for 6 times (12); 6 dec (6)
Step 22: Head 5
Leave a long tail to sew the hole and, later, to sew head to the body.
Step 23: Pointy Ears
Pointy ears (make 2): 5 ch; 1 double crochet in the second chain from the hook; 1 half double crochet in the next chain; 1 slip stitch in the next chain. Fasten off and leave a tail to sew the ears to head.
Step 24: Hair 1
With brown thread, embroider the hair: starting from the top of the head, make some long stitches to the hem of the brown sc.
Step 25: Hair 2
Brown single crochets will help you a lot, follow them when embroidered.
Step 26: Hair 3
Embroider all the hair.
Step 27: Face
Embroider eyes and mouth.
Step 28: Ears & Head
Sew ears to the head.
Step 29: Head & Body
