Crewmate Amigurumi Doll Crochet Pattern

The difference in height between our Crewmate Doll and Standing Crewmate Keychain

Good day to all lovely souls out there!

In this post, I will share with you all the pattern of the Crewmate Amigurumi Doll, which is about 8.5cm if you were to use the yarn thickness and hook size that I am using for this pattern i.e. a yarn weightage of 15 WPI (any type of yarn) and a 2mm crochet hook.

In this pattern, the head, body and legs will be crocheted from top to bottom and in rounds without any slip stitching at the end of each round.

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


Round 1

Step 1: Ch-8

Step 2: 2-sc into the 2nd chain from the hook, 5-sc, 2-sc into the last chain (9)

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

Round 2: inc, 5-sc, 2-inc, 5-sc, inc (18)

Round 3: 18-sc

Round 4: (5-sc, inc) x 3 (21)

Round 5: 21-sc

Round 6: (6-sc, inc) x 3 (24)

Round 7-9: 24-sc

Round 10: 1-sc, inc, 8-sc, inc, 2-sc, inc, 8-sc, inc, 1-sc (28)

Round 11-14: 28-sc

Round 15: (13-sc, inc) x 2 (30)

Round 16: 30-sc

The head and body is completed after Round 16 but do not cut the yarn as we are going to divide the stitches for the two legs in Round 17.


In Round 17, we will be dividing the body into two portions. Since there are 30 stitches for the body and if you flatten the workpiece, you should have 15 stitches on each side (front and back). Excluding the 6 stitches for the center portion, each leg will have a circle of 12 stitches. With that in mind, let’s continue with the instruction.

Round 17

Step 1: 8-sc, Ch-1, 1-slst (BLO) the 9th and 26th stitches together (8)

Step 2: 1-slst (BLO) the 10th and 25th stitches together

Step 3: 1-slst (BLO) the 11th and 24th stitches together, Ch-1

Step 4: 12-sc, Ch-1

Step 5: 1-slst (FLO) the 11th and 24th stitches together

Step 6: 1-slst (FLO) the 10th and 25th stitches together

Step 7: 1-slst (FLO) the 9th and 26th stitches together, Ch-1

Step 8: 4-sc

Alternatively, you can crochet the 3 slip stitches directly into the stitches instead of working with the FLO/BLO. I am using this method because it would be easier to crochet the legs as the stitches (for the legs) close to the center would not get tucked in by the slip stitches.


Do not stuff the body yet but continue to crochet the first leg, which is the 12-stitch circle with the stitch marker and we will reset the round number for the legs.

Round 1-4: 12-sc

The leg is not completed yet at this point, insert a stitch marker to secure the last loop (See photo below). Either using the other end tail of the yarn ball or another new ball of yarn, we will continue with the second leg.


You can start your first stitch at any stitch but I prefer to insert my hook into the stitch under the first stitch of second leg (See photo below)

Round 1: Ch-1, 1-sc into the same stitch, 11-sc (12)

Round 2-4: 12-sc


You can start stuffing in at this point. After stuffing, we will close off both legs in Round 5.

Round 5: (2-sc, inc) x 3 (9)

Leave a tail and close off by picking the outer loops with the needle, then tighten the yarn to close the gap, tug the bottom in to flatten the sole when you weave in the tail. There might be a small gap between the slip stitch and the first round of the legs, especially the second one. It is okay, just make a few simple sewing stitches (see photo) to close it off during the weave-in of the legs.


Using White color yarn, Ch-5

Round 1

Step 1: 1-sc into the 2nd chain from hook, 3-sc, change to Blue Color, inc into the same stitch (6)

Step 2: Working on the opposite side of the chain, 2-sc, inc (4)

Round 2: (1-sc, inc) x 2 (FLO), (1-sc, inc) x 3 (15)

Round 3: 15-sc (FLO), change to Black color in your last yarn over

Round 4: 15-sc (FLO), slst into the first stitch, cut and leave a long tail for sewing purpose

The face mask is oblong by default. If you want a rectangular frame, just stretch out the four corners with pins, securing the corners with simple sewing stitches before closing up.


The back pack for the doll has a slightly different shape from the keychain patterns. I try to make it similar to the one I’ve seen in those crewmate drawings.

Using the same yarn color as the body, Ch 5

Row 1: 1-sc into the 2nd chain from hook, 3-sc, Ch-1, turn (4)

Row 2: 4-sc, Ch-1, turn

Row 3: inc, 2-sc, inc, Ch-1, turn (6)

Row 4: 6-sc, Ch-1, turn

Row 5: 6-sc, Ch-2, turn

After completing Row 5, we will be crocheting around the perimeter of the workpiece (In rounds).

Round 1

Step 1: 5-sc, (1-sc, Ch-1, 1-sc) into the last stitch (7)

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

Step 3: 1-sc, (1-sc, Ch-1, 1-sc) into the next stitch, 2-sc, (1-sc, Ch-1, 1-sc) into the last stitch (7)

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

Step 5: 2-sc, (1-sc, Ch 1, 1-sc) into the last loop (4)

Step 6: Rotate your workpiece until the SIDE 2 is facing up

Step 7: 2-sc, (1-sc, Ch 1, 1-sc) into the next stitch, 2-sc, slst into the top loop of first chain 2 (6)

After finishing Round 1, you should have 6 corners made when you crocheted (1-sc, Ch-1, 1-sc) and the shape of your backpack should be the same as the one shown in the photo. In Round 2 (back loops only), you will need to crochet into the back loops of these six “Ch-1 corners”.

Round 2: Ch-1, 1-sc into the same stitch (BLO), 29-sc (BLO), slst back into the first sc stitch (30)

Round 3: Ch-1, 30-slst (FLO), slst back into the first chain 1, cut and leave a long tail for sewing purposes.


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.

For the backpack, the narrower row (with 4 stitches) should be the top part. Position it on the 6th round (recommended). Use a simple sewing stitch on the sides to secure its position, then stuff in the fiberfill before stitching it fully.

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.

To The Nines…

“Dressed To The Nines”

The phrases ‘to the nines’, or ‘to the nine’, were used to indicate perfection – the highest standards. That was in use in the 18th century, as here from William Hamilton’s Epistle to Ramsay, 1719:

“How the nines, they did content me.”

Although the general consensus to the origin of “Dressed to the Nines” is unknown; consider the meaning to be simply a reference of scale.

On a scale of one to ten; you are dressed to the nines”  

Since perfection can never be attained, nine would be the absolute best.

‘To the nines’ has now gone out of use and only persists in the more specific ‘dressed to the nines’ (or sometimes ‘dressed up to the nines’).

Dressed to the nines, or dressed up to the nines are merely a version of the phrase that is applied to clothing.

A dress is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice which is often worn by women and girls in the western culture.

In most varieties of formal dress codes in Western cultures, a dress of an appropriate style is mandatory for women. They are also very popular for special occasions such as proms or weddings.

As a matter of fact, dresses were not originally a fashion for women. In many cultures throughout history and world, dresses have been worn by men; consider the Scottish kilt (although kilts are reported to be of Scandinavian heritage), or the toga worn by the ancient Greeks.

During the rather demure times of the early 1920s, it was common to see masculine styles of dress, with strong angles, made from sturdy materials, but this changed dramatically as we moved into the 1930s and 40s when a cultural shift in attitudes towards women were slowly becoming liberated within society.

Women’s dresses were fashioned with lower backs, revealing the upper portions of the buttocks, and waists were tucked in, women’s bodies became the focal point of their outfits, whereas in the past, fashion strived to conceal the female form.

The war years, and the post war years, brought further poverty and lack of provisions and this trend gave rise the invention of the mini-skirt, the shortest style of dress to date.

” Be careless in your dress if you must, but keep a tidy soul. “
~ Mark Twain

There are not really many opportunities for me to dress to the nines though.

However, there were many opportunities to grab some pretty dresses that cost me only $9.90 and thus putting myself up on cloud number 9!!

Have a beautiful day ahead, always!

Those Mixed Feelings…

Mirrors & High-Heeled Shoes

A Lady’s Best Friend

And Yet…

Worst Enemy

Clouds N Cups


People probably first started to look at their reflections in pools of water which were the first mirrors. The earliest man made mirrors were from polished stone and black volcanic glass obsidian. Examples of obsidian mirrors found in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) have been dated to around 6000 BC.

Mirrors of any precious metal were hard to produce and were only owned by the wealthy. The invention of the silvered-glass mirror is credited to German chemist Justus von Liebig in 1835. This silvering process was adapted for mass manufacturing and led to the greater availability of affordable mirrors.

The concepts of the soul are often associated with mirrors, which results in a wealth of superstition surrounding mind like breaking a mirror causes seven years of bad luck.

As according to an old Roman legend, the soul which shatters with the broken mirror will regenerate every seven years.

Although high heels are now usually worn only by girls and women, there are shoe designs worn by both genders that have elevated heels and for purposes more than just fashion.

The high-heeled shoe was used in the 16th century by Persian soldiers on horseback because it gave the soldiers stability in the stirrups so they could use their bow and arrows more efficiently.

Dating back to 3500 B.C., early depictions of high heels could be seen on ancient Egyptian murals. These murals would depict Egyptian nobilities wearing heels to set them apart from the lower class, who would normally go barefoot.

High heels also served a practical purpose for Egyptian butchers who wore them in order to walk over the bloodied bodies of animal carcasses.

The invention of high heels as a fashion statement (in 1533) could be accredited to the rather petite Catherine de Medici who felt insecure in comparison to the Duke’s favorite mistress, Diane de Poitiers, who was relatively tall.

Knowing that she would have to compete with his mistress for attention in an arrange marriage, the future French Queen remedied this by donning two inches heels that gave her a higher physique and a captivating sway when she moved. These heels became a success and soon became associated with wealth and privilege.

Since the Second World War, high heels have fallen in and out of popular fashion trend several times, most notably in the late 1990s, when lower heels and even flats predominated. Lower heels were preferred during the late 1960s and early 1970s as well, but higher heels returned in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In modern society, high-heeled shoes are a part of women’s fashion. A survey conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association showed some 42% of women admitted that they would wear a shoe they liked even if it gave them discomfort.

As I was looking for some enlightening quotes related to mirrors and heels to share with you lovely souls, I’ve found an interesting one instead:

When a woman buys shoes,

She takes them out of the box and looks at herself in the mirror.

But she isn’t really looking at her shoes – she’s looking at herself.

If she likes herself, then she likes the shoes.

Christian Louboutin

No matter how beautiful an accessory could be, what matters most is to feel good about ourselves at all times.

Have a wonderful day ahead, always!

Stepping Stones

As according to Merriam Webster,

  1. a large, flat stone that you step on to cross a stream
  2. something that helps you get or achieve something

If you make an error, use it as a stepping stone to a new idea you might not have otherwise discovered.~ Roger von Oech 

Thus, here are some of those lovely stepping stones which helped us discovered many new ideas:
