Amigurumi Moose CAL Part 2


Welcome to Part 2 of our Amigurumi Moose CAL! I love all of the colors I'm seeing in the group and now it's time to add a head.

Today we will make the head, nose, ears and antlers! Plus the little bow for Millie. 

Feel free to add your own personalities by adding eyelashes, eyebrows or smiles as you'd like!

If you are just joining in it's not too late to start. You can find all of the details about the CAL and link to Part 1 here! Each part will remain free here on the blog so you can crochet at your own pace.

The full pattern is also available in an ad-free PDF version in my Etsy and Ravelry shop!



We are making these sweet moose in 3 parts:

You may make and sell items made from this pattern but please do not sell, share or reproduce the actual pattern. If you sell finished items online (Etsy, etc) please provide a link to the pattern and credit to me as the designer, thank you. I hope you enjoy this pattern!

For this pattern I have used 12mm plastic safety eyes. If you don't have these on hand or prefer to make crocheted eyes instead, I have a tutorial on making them with crochet thread here

(For each of the parts below we will be using our 3.5mm crochet hook.)

Ears

Make two with light brown

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Rounds 4-5: SC around (18)

Rounds 7-8: SC around (12)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing. Using part of the tail fold the ear in half and sew across the top to create a fold in the ear, be sure to leave enough tail to use sew onto the head.



Antlers

Make 2 

Note for the antlers: I left mine unstuffed. Each antler will consist of two pieces joined together, very similar to our joining of the legs in Part 1.

With ivory

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each st (12)

Rounds 3-6: SC around (12)

Fasten off and make one more piece by repeating rounds 1-6, do not fasten off on the 2nd piece.

Round 7: We will join these two pieces and continue the antler. Join with a SC to the first piece and SC around both pieces (unlike the legs we will not be using a chain to connect the two) (24)

Round 8: SC in the first 2 sts, INV DEC in the next, rep around (18)

Round 9: SC around (18)

Round 10: SC in the first st, INV DEC in the next, rep around (12)

Rounds 11-12: SC around (12)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing. This completes one antler, repeat rounds 1-12 for the 2nd antler.



Bow (for Millie)

Working in a magic circle make 4 DC, slip stitch, 4 DC and slip stitch again. Pull your string tight and wrap it around the middle of the bow 3-4 times. Tie/secure in the back and cut your string leaving a long section to sew with.



Assembling the Head

1. Sew the antlers onto the head starting at the 5th round and ending at the 9th round on each side.



2. Sew the ears on just below the antlers.

3. If you're making Millie attach your bow onto the desired side.


We're done with Part 2 and over halfway done making our moose!

Join us back on Wednesday for Part 3, we will make the arms, scarf (for Miles) and assemble everything together!
