Not a Good Guy

Chucky - free amigurumi pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersEverything must be amigurumi-fied, even knife wielding dolls with a murderous streak. So here’s Chucky, the dude responsible for my childhood nightmares.

Chucky - free amigurumi pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersI had quite a bit of fun making this little bad guy because at 8.5 inches, he’s the right sized amigurumi that allows you to add in a lot of details. So I went detail crazy! Right from the stripes on his Converse shoes to colorful stripes on the cuffs of his overalls to the scar on his face. I even gave him eyebrows!  And the result is nothing short of fabulous, if I say so myself. 😉 Chucky - free amigurumi pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersI must warn you though. This pattern requires that you have some basic embroidery skills. Patience is also right up there in the list of must-have skills since you will need to sew several tiny crocheted pieces. If you are not particularly a fan of changing color every row, let me warn you, your patience will be put to the ultimate test. Phew! This is an intermediate pattern as it requires working with four different colored yarns at a time, switching between working in the front loops and back loops, working in back posts, making loop stitches, and every other kind of amigurumi technique that drives the lazy out of you. 😉 Chucky - free amigurumi pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersThough I’ve tried to include photos that explain the difficult bits, a tutorial on making loop stitch—which is what I have used to make the wig—is probably the only thing this pattern does not include. Trust me, I would if I could but apparently, a pair of hands isn’t enough to hold the hook, the yarn, and the camera. I have a nagging suspicion that crocheteers who post photo tutorials either have an extra pair of limbs or they have a crochet slave stashed away in their basement. So here’s what we will do. We’ll make a quick run to where Stacey has an excellent photo tutorial on how to make a loop stitch.

Now with that out of the way, let get to the good part. 🙂 The pattern is FREE! Yes, absolutely free; that is, unless you want to tip me for coming up with this marvelous pattern for you, in which case you can always donate to Animal Nepal. 😀 Chucky - free amigurumi pattern by Tales of Twisted Fibers

Have fun hookin’!

    Chucky may not be a “GOOD GUY,” but you definitely are a very “GOOD DESIGNER!” Thank you for sharing your work with us.

    Hi, Dear Friend! So glad to see you are designing again! And what a design. You have really come up with a winner. I have never watched any of the Chucky movies just because he was sooo scary. But this is one Chucky that I will definitely need for Halloween! Glad you are hookin’ again! Love, Cynthia

        Thank you for your reply. I can’t wait to start on Chucky but I may have to try my hand at creating a Tiffany because I think Chucky will be heartbroken without his wife 😉

      Thanks for your message. And I’m sorry for taking so long to respond. I do allow translations but there are a few rules I request every translator to follow, which includes not sharing the pattern in its entirety on social media. I’ll mail you in a bit with the details.

    This is super cute. I have a quick ? About the shoe. Round 4 bpsc around (24) why is that 24 and not 28. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi, there. I have a daughter who is crazy about Chucky. She wants one you can order from Spencer’s. I would rather make one for her. I have your pattern downloaded but I have a question concerning the yarn. Is it just one skein of each color and what size skein? Thanks.

  7. Lee says:

    I see my ? About 24 should be 28 has been answered. Not sure what it would take to edit but I spent 2 days and many do overs to think it might be an opps. I 1st made this when I was very new to crocheting and now that I am better I thought I might re-make him. Because I think he is the coolest doll out there. I discovered I had omitted the bpsc and only did the blo stich. It turned out fine but adding the bpsc gave the little shoes firmer, cleaner details. So new crocheters don’t be afraid to tackle Chucky. Follow each step that is wonderfully described in text and pics. I learned a few new stitches but nothing I couldn’t handle. This is a wonderful pattern. Thanks for being so kind in sharing it.

    Thank you for the pattern it was so easy to follow, it turned out great. I’d post a picture of how great it turned out but I can’t figure out how to. Lol. Thanks again

    I’m trying to make Chucky, but I’m confused at round 4 in the shoe. Sounds 2 and 3 have 28 sc round 4 has 24 bpsc, so there’s 4 sc stitches to finish the round, do I just start round 5 with the red yarn and if I did that wouldn’t the white and red rounds be uneven
