Sitting Mini Crewmate Keychain Crochet Pattern (Part 1)

Although I never played this mobile game, two items managed to catch my attention — the Egg Hat (free pattern in my previous post – Standing Crewmate Keychain Pattern) and the sitting mini crewmates. As there are two different methods for the head/body and legs, there will be two separate posts for this cutie. In this post, the head/body and legs are two separate components and in the next post, we will crochet these two into one piece.

Using a yarn weightage of 15 WPI (any type of yarn) and a 2mm crochet hook, you can create a sitting crewmate with a height of 4.5cm/1.8”. Using thinner yarns (about 19 WPI), you can create a tiny one with a height of 3.5cm/1.4”.

Difficulty: Advance Beginner/Intermediate

Time Taken: 45 min – 1hr

Abbreviations (US Terminology)

AMR – Adjustable Magic Ring

BLO/FLO – Back/Front Loop Only

Ch – Chain

dec – Single Crochet Decrease

inc – Single Crochet Increase

sc – Single Crochet

slst – Slip Stitch


HEAD AND BODY

Round 1

Step 1: Ch-8

Step 2: 3-sc into the 2nd chain from hook, 5-sc, 3-sc into the last chain (11)

Step 3: Working on the opposite side of the chain, 5-sc, slst into the first sc stitch

Round 2: 3-sc into the first stitch, 7-sc, 3-sc into the next stitch, 7-sc (20)

Round 3: 20-sc (FLO)

Round 4-5: 20-sc

Round 6: 5-sc, dec, 8-sc, dec, 3-sc (18)

Round 7: 18-sc

Round 8: (dec, 7-sc) x 2 (16)

Round 9-10: 16-sc

Round 11: (2-sc, dec) x 4, stuff fiberfill into the body (12)

Round 12: dec x 6 , stuff in fiberfill (if needed) before closing up (6)


LEGS (MAKE 2)

Using the same color as the head/body, form an AMR

Round 1: 8-sc into AMR

Round 2: 8-sc

Round 3: 8-sc (BLO)

Round 4: Stuff in fiberfill, pinch the opening to align the stitches in both sides, crochet 3-sc across to close up, cut and leave a tail for sewing (3)

FACE MASK

Using White color yarn, Ch-5

Round 1

Step 1: 1-sc into the 2nd chain from hook, 3-sc, change to Light Blue color in your last yarn over (4)

Step 2: inc into the same stitch, 2-sc, inc into the last loop, slst into the first sc stitch (6)

Round 2: (1-sc, inc) x 5, change to Black color in your last yarn over (15)

Round 3: 15-sc, slst into the first sc stitch, cut and leave a tail for attaching purpose


BACK PACK

For the back pack meant for our sitting crewmate, it is slightly different from the standing crewmate because I made it a little wider so that it can act as a support for the body.

Using the same yarn color as the body, Ch 6

Row 1: 1-sc into the 2nd chain from hook, 4-sc, Ch-1, turn (5)

Row 2-3: 5-sc, Ch-1, turn

From this point, we will crochet along the perimeter of the workpiece.

Round 1

Step 1: 1-sc into same stitch as Chain 1, 3-sc, (1-sc, Ch-1, 1-sc) into the last stitch (6)

Step 2: Rotate your workpiece until the SIDE 1 is facing up

Step 3: 3-sc, (1-sc, Ch-1, 1-sc) into the last stitch of SIDE 1 (5)

Step 4: Rotate your workpiece until the BOTTOM side is facing up, Repeat Step 3

Step 5: Rotate your workpiece until the SIDE 2 is facing up, 3-sc, (1-sc, Ch-1) into the last stitch, slst back into the first sc stitch (4)

Round 2: Ch-1, 24-sc (BLO), slst back into the first sc stitch (Note: These 24 stitches include the 4 Ch-1 back loops at the four corners)

Round 3: Ch 1, 24-slst (FLO), 1-slst back into the first Chain 1, cut and leave a tail for sewing


ASSEMBLING

LEGS

Choose the side that you would like to be the front, and use a stitch marker as an indication. The joints of the legs should be aligned with the back section of the body when you sew them to the bottom part. This is to ensure that you can bend them to the front after sewing.

FACE MASK AND BACK PACK

When you view your workpiece from the top, the top 2 rows are only 1 round, do not consider it as 2 rounds when you are positioning your facemask and backpack. Instead of sewing along the perimeter at the beginning, I would make a simple stitch at the four corners of the facemask and backpack in order to secure the position before stuffing (if needed).

You may make and sell items made from this pattern but please do not sell, share or reproduce the actual pattern.

Hope all you lovely souls enjoy crocheting this cute little Sitting Crewmate keychain.
