Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting small stuffed animals and objects. Here’s a basic guide on how you might create an amigurumi Pooh bear:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. Worsted weight yarn in Pooh’s colors (yellow for the body, red for the shirt, etc.).
  2. Crochet hook suitable for your chosen yarn.
  3. Fiberfill or stuffing material.
  4. Safety eyes or embroidery thread for eyes.
  5. Yarn needle for sewing and weaving in ends.
  6. Stitch markers to keep track of rounds.



  1. Begin with Pooh’s body. Start with a magic circle and crochet in continuous rounds.
  2. Crochet a certain number of single crochet stitches into the magic circle to form the body’s base, gradually increasing the stitch count in each round to create a round shape.
  3. Continue working in rounds until the body reaches your desired height. Remember to stuff the body firmly with fiberfill as you go.
  4. Sew on the safety eyes or embroider the eyes using black embroidery thread.
  5. Embroider or use a small piece of felt to create Pooh’s nose and mouth.


  1. Change to the red yarn to create Pooh’s shirt. Crochet a flat piece that wraps around the body, leaving an opening for the arms and head.
  2. Sew or crochet the shirt piece onto the body, securing it in place.

Arms and Legs:

  1. Create two arms and two legs using the yellow yarn.
  2. Crochet these pieces in rounds, gradually decreasing stitches towards the ends to shape them.
  3. Leave a tail at the starting and ending points of each limb to sew them onto the body later.


  1. Create Pooh’s head using the same method as the body, just smaller in size.
  2. Stuff the head firmly and sew it onto the body.


  1. Create two ear pieces using the yellow yarn.
  2. These can be simple circular shapes, slightly flattened.
  3. Sew or crochet them onto the head.


  1. Sew the arms and legs onto the body.
  2. Attach any additional details, like Pooh’s shirt buttons or a little “hunny” pot if you like.

Remember, amigurumi is a creative process, so feel free to adapt and modify the pattern as you see fit. This is just a general guide, and you might need to adjust stitch counts and rounds to get the proportions and look you desire.
