Ash Vs Evil Dead Amigurumi

Raise your hands if you were bummed out by Starz network’s decision to cancel Ash Vs Evil Dead after its third season. I, for one, was totally devastated. Starz, how could you! Sob, sob. Sniffle, sniffle. Bawl, bawl. Not groovy, not groovy at all.

Now that Bruce Campbell has also announced he’s hanging up his chainsaw for good, I felt the time was right for a yarny tribute to our chainsaw-handed hero Ash J. Williams—portrayed by the charismatic Bruce Campbell—who has been fighting the terrors of the evil dead since 1981. So, in a true Ash fashion, I avoided all deadlines and responsibilities for a week to create this 8.5 inch amigurumi version of “jefe” Ash Williams. And because I want an amigurumi army of Ash J. Williams to colonize this planet, I wrote a pattern for it too. To join me in my mission, download this free pattern by clicking on the link at the end of this post, make as many Ash Willaims as you can, and gift them to your Ash Vs Evil Dead-loving friends and family.

Yes, Jefe, we are working on it. It should be ready by the end of this post.


So, about the amigurumi. It’s an intermediate level pattern that requires very small amounts of yarn. That’s the good news. The not-so-good news is, since the pattern has a lot of details, it requires a bit of sewing and embroidery skills, working with wires and wire cutters, and a whole lot of patience.


Look at that! This groovy dude has a detachable chainsaw…

…and wired arms, which means you can pose his arms at different angles and take super awesome photos like this. Oh, and the amigurumi can stand on its own without any support. Isn’t that sweet! Now download the free pattern, make your very own Ash Williams and save the world from the Deadites.



Happy hookin’! ❤

    What a great design serah. Well done. A one week design? Did you take off a week or only in the evenings and other spare time?
    Thank you for this pattern. I will certainly reading it for all the details you mentioned. But i like making animals more so I hope the next one is an animal again😉. And there is a lot on my hook at this time. I think I have 5 wip(work in progress) at this moment…..

      Thank you so much, Amifan! It took me four entire days to design it [the chainsaw took the longest time to design] and three more days for photoshoot, photo editing, pattern writing and layout. Phew!

      Five WIPs! Wow! And you’re also very active on your blog and Instagram. How to you manage it all? You’ve got to let me on in your secret. 😉

      • AmiFan says:

        How I manage? I make my blogposts twice per month. You can write them and publish them later. Instagram is on my phone. So that is easy😉 and just post what I am doing….
        And the WIPs…. to many ideas and tests. One test for another designer. One off my own pattern. And a scarf, a hat snd a new design in progress

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Karin! I’m really glad you like the design. It was quite a bit of work putting together the pattern so I hope everyone has fun making it. Thanks again for taking the time to read the post. 😘

    Love the pattern, thank you for sharing!! I am so sorry they are cancelling Ash vs Evil Dead. Maybe if people complain a lot they will return it. Hoping

    Hey I love your pattern and I am curious about a detail in it. I’m working on the right arm and I noticed that you didn’t write in instructions for a row 2, you went from 1 to 3. I assumed I needed to increase in all six stitches to get the correct stitch count for row three. Am I correct? Thanks for writing such a lovely pattern and making free! Free patterns make the world go round!

      • Anonymous says:

        OK, thank you for clarifying that for me! I knew when I read ahead earlier that those instructions seemed strange and especially different from the previous worked arm. It’s been a tiring couple of days and I’m glad I didn’t try working that arm up yet because I knew something was wrong, luckily it was just me!
