Where the wild things are amigurumi : Max free crochet pattern !

Max where the wild things are amigurumi pattern by ahooka

Last week I showed you my take on the Unnamed monster pattern from Sharon Ojala. I loved it so much that not only have I made Carol with it, but I also adapted it to KW (instructions here). But once I had made those 2 maximonsters, something was missing ! I wanted a Max that would match the aesthetic of the 2 monsters : not too realistic and a bit naive. 

Making a pattern that would match someone else’s has been an exciting challenge for me, and the end result is quite different from the other patterns I made so far. I hope you’ll enjoy it! 

 Max where the wild things are amigurumi pattern by ahooka

 
Material

– Use the same yarn as for the maximonsters. It should be acrylic yarn to be able to brush it and make the fuzzy aspect. I actually used Phildar’s cabotine which is a coton and acrylic mix as I didn’t have any 100% acrylic yarn but Red Heart Comfort worsted weight acrylic yarn used by Sharon in the unnamed monster pattern would be more appropriate !
Colors : brown, white, peach and yellow. 

– a crochet hook that match your yarn (4mm with the Red Heart Comfort and 3mm with Phildar Cabotine)

– A bit of white and black felt 

– Fabric glue (or wood glue) to glue on the felt details. 

– A tapestry (or wool) needle to assemble the pieces

– Needle and embroidery floss for the mouth

– A pet brush to brush the acrylic yarn. 

Scissors 

– A stitch marker (I use a paper clip) 

Stuffing 

– (optional) 4 pipe cleaners for the tail

– (optional) A bit of black jewelry wire and cutting pliers

Size

Approximately 17 cm (6.7 inches) with Phildar Cabotine, but bigger with the Red Heart Comfort (I can’t tell exactly as this yarn is not available here)

Difficulty

Easy – Beginners friendly as long as you know how to assemble small pieces. 

Abbreviations and stitches used.

MR: magic ring
st:
 stitch
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch
ch: chain
dc: double crochet
dec: decrease (crochet 2 single crochet together – I use the invisible decrease technique but sc2tog will do just fine)
inc : increase (2 single crochet in 1 st)
BLO: back loop only
FO: Fasten of
(…,…)*x : repeat x number of times the instructions between brackets

Notes :

– This pattern is worked in continuous round : do not join or turn unless stated otherwise.

– Mark the last stitch of the round with your stitch marker in order to check that you’ve made the right amount of stitches in the round.

– This pattern already includes the increases and decreases shifts to make a perfect circle (check the tutorial to make a perfect crochet circle here

– Your photos are welcome at facebook.com/ahookamigurumi ! I would be glad to see your work and add them to the “made by you” album.

The tail

As for the tail, I’ll redirect you to Sharon Ojala’s unnamed monster pattern as I used the exact same one. If you add the pipe cleaners in, it will help you make your character stand up by its own (see pic below)

Then, pin it to the body and sew it on.

Face details

First, cut out 2 circles in black felt and glue them on, then, add 2 tiny white circles.

Now, embroider the mouth. In addition of the pictures below, you can read my tutorial to embroider amigurumi details to help you out.

Whiskers (optional)

Max’s desguise has little whiskers on the sides. In order to make them, I used black jewelry wire that I cut in small pieces. I then folded them in half and add them to the sides of the hood. But of course, I would not recommend to add those whiskers if Max is made for a small child.
