Picture of Crochet Megaman (Mega Man) Amigurumi
I present MEGA MAN!  

Now this isn't the cartoon Mega man, this is the 8-bit video game Mega man.  I wanted to make that clear.  He's just that short, stocky, funny looking guy in the video game.  From pictures, it appears his blaster changes to whatever arm is convenient, but most pictures put it on the left arm, so that is where mine is.

This is my first time making up a crochet pattern, and like with most things, I can't just start with something simple, I have to try to jump into something crazy.  This Mega man started out quite awesome looking in my mind, deteriorated to a mutant Mega man in the middle of it's creation and came out looking acceptable in the end.

This is the outcome of weeks (when I had time) of work involving many moments of almost giving up and throwing him across the room, and an oddly still numb tip of my right ring finger (the feeling is starting to come back, I think it is from the pressure I put on the finger while crocheting, since I crochet very tightly).

I hope you enjoy this Instructable.  He was, in the end, very fun to make and I enjoy seeing him on my desk at Instructables!

Step 1: What you Need

Picture of What you Need
You'll need the basics and then a few other things if you want his limbs to move.

  • Dark Blue Yarn
  • Lighter Blue Yarn
  • Black Yarn
  • White Yarn
  • Mega man Skin colored Yarn (forgot to put in picture but it was just some stuff I found at a second hand craft store)
  • Crochet Hook Size E
  • Yarn Needle that fits through button holes
  • Buttons (8) with holes your yarn needle can fit through
  • Stuffing

For this amigurumi, you need to know how to do a chain, slip stitch, magic ring (optional), single crochet and double crochet.

Well, for your first crochet pattern, you sure make it look easy! I have never tried Amigurumi, but I can totally relate to bypassing simple and "jumping into something crazy".

Can't wait to see what's next!

Thanks! I can't wait to try something else. I'm thinking Capuchin Monkey :)
Holy shrapnel! How much would you possibly charge to make one for me? I'm throwing a retro video game burlesque party next month, and this would make an exceptional grand prize for the raffle!
I don't know if I could even make another one in time! I've been working on this guy since the amigurumi challenge, though I was making it up as I went so that wasted a lot of time.
