Free Crochet Swan Pattern





I'm super excited to introduce you to Sophie the Swan!

She's a fun and quick make with her body and head as one piece. And those wings? Loving the feathers!

I've been trying to be more intentional about working through the stash of yarn I had on hand and boy do I have a lot of Lion Brand Feels Like Butta! I knew it would be perfect for this project and I paired it with their Jeans yarn to compliment. I'll share the shades I used below!

If you're new to amigurumi be sure to check out our Tips page, I'll walk you through the methods used below!

Materials -

  • Size 4 worsted weight yarn (125g of white; small amount of black and pink)
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook
  • 12mm safety eyes
  • Black crochet/embroidery thread for eyelashes/eyebrows (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stuffing
  • Stitch markers

For this project I used Lion Brand Feels Like Butta in White and Jeans in Stovepipe.

Abbreviations - US terminology

MC- Magic circle

SC- Single crochet

SC INC- Single crochet increase

INV DEC- Invisible decrease

St(s)- Stitch(es)

Ch - Chain

 



Finished swan measures approximately 15 inches tall.


NOTES -


- Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. I recommend stuffing the body before crocheting the neck.

- You will be working in the round; I like to use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

- The body and head will be made as one piece. I recommend tight stitches and firm stuffing to help avoid a wobbly neck.

NOTE - Here is where we will attach the facial features. Place the safety eyes 7 stitches apart between rounds 47 and 48. (For a girl version, I recommend sewing on the eyelashes before securing your safety eyes).


Beak - Sew the beak centered between the eyes with a small amount of stuffing.


Cheeks – With your tapestry needle and yarn for cheeks pass through one stitch on either side of your beak just under the eyes.

 



(Be sure to stuff the neck and shoulders firmly as you go. This will keep the neck sturdy.)
