Sitting Mini Crewmate Keychain Crochet Pattern (Part 2)

Good day to all lovely souls out there! If you’ve already tried the first method of this sitting crewmate, I do hope you have enjoyed crocheting it. In this post, the body, head and legs will be crocheted into one piece and. The soles of the legs will be flat instead of pointed.

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-6

Step 2: 3-sc into the 2nd chain from the hook. 3-sc, 3-sc into the last chain (9)

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

Round 2: (inc, 5-sc) x 2 (14)

Round 3: 14-sc

Round 4: 3-sc, inc, 6-sc, inc, 3-sc (16)

Round 5-6: 16-sc

Round 7: (inc, 7-sc) x 2 (18)

Round 8: 18-sc

Round 9: 4-sc, inc, 8-sc, inc, 4-sc (20)

Round 10: 20-sc

In Round 11, we will divide the body into two portions. Since there are 20 stitches for the body, there will be 10 stitches in both sections (front and back). 

Round 11 (BACK SECTION)

Step 1: 6-sc

Step 2: Pick up the front loop of the 7th stitch with your hook, slip stitch this loop together with the 18th stitch

Step 3: Pick up the front loop of the 8th stitch with your hook, slip stitch this loop together with the 17th stitch

Step 4: 8-sc

Round 11 (FRONT SECTION): 1-slst into the two center joint stitches made in Round 11 (Back Section), 2-sc

The head and body is completed after Round 11 but do not cut the yarn yet.


HEAD/BODY STUFFING

Before we crochet the legs, we need to stuff the fiberfill into the body and close it up from the center part of the body via sewing. 

  • Insert the needle into one of the center slip stitches, leave a tail in the middle so that you can use it to sew the other side. 
  • Sew along the gap between Round 9 and 10 and adjust the stuffing (if needed) as you sew.
  • Do not over stuff the body so that the sides can be flipped up after stitching.
  • Leave the tails at the side of the body. We will use them to stitch up the sides during the bending of the legs.

FIRST LEG

Excluding the 4 center stitches, each leg will have a circle of 8 stitches.

Round 1-4: 8-sc

Round 5: 8-sc (BLO) , cut and leave a tail to close off by picking the outer loops of the 8 stitches with your needle after stuffing

SECOND LEG

You can insert your hook into any of the stitches. In this pattern, I’ve inserted my hook into the first stitch from the center with the back section facing me.

Round 1: Ch-1, 1-sc into the same stitch as Chain 1, 7-sc (8)

Round 2-4: 8-sc

Round 5: 8-sc (BLO) , cut and leave a tail to close off by picking the outer loops of the 8 stitches with your needle after stuffing


STUFFING AND POSITIONING THE LEGS

Start stuffing the legs once you have completed crocheting the 2nd leg. Make sure that the leg is able to bend at the stitched joint before closing off and tucking in Round 5 to flatten the bottom part during weaving in.

During weaving in, bring the yarn tail to the front part of the legs. Bend the leg and secure the position by stitching it to the body. Then stitch up along the sides (outer and inner part of the legs) as according to your preferences.


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

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.
