Bluey amigurumi – make your own

Hello fellow exhausted parents, how have you been? If you are in Australia, yes we are all ABC kids fans by now. My daughter is 3 years old and she still likes The Wiggles and Emma a little bit more than Bluey.

I like Bluey. (Edited to add: Now my daughter likes them a lot more than me) I binge watched a few episodes while making this Bluey amigurumi toy. My favorite episode is ‘keepy uppy’, laughed so much while watching it. If you are in the same train as I am, let me know in the comments your favorite Bluey episode.

I made this Bluey amigurumi toy for my friends daughter, and now my girl wants it. Has it happened to you as well? I have to make another Bluey and do some pattern testing on the way.

Pattern notes

The Bluey toy is worked in continuous rounds without joining, unless specified otherwise. The base is worked in ovals, and worked upwards like how you would do a tapestry crochet purse to accommodate the color changes. So, you have to crochet over the other yarn when you are using one yarn. Always change colors, in the middle of the stitch to make it appear seamless. Most importantly keep it tight to avoid the other color showing through.

Glossary

  • ch = chain stitch
  • st = stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • inc = increase (2sc in one stitch)
  • invdec = invisble decrease (2sc together)
  • sl st = slip stitch

Yarns & Hooks

Three different shades of blue. I had a blue base color for Bluey already in my stash. And, I’m afraid I may not be able to give you the right yarn for that. I got my other two colors from Big W.

Light blue – Carnival soft 8 ply Shade : 2541

Dark blue – Carnival soft 8 ply Shade: 1485

Hook : 2.5mm

Safety eyes : 12mm

Tapestry needle and Fiberfill.

Video help to make the base:

Foundation Chain: Chain 18.

Round 1: In the second chain from the hook,
  • 3sc inc a) Mark the first stitch with a red stitch marker b) Mark the next stitch with a blue marker to make the increases.
  • sc in the next 15 ch.
  • 3sc inc and mark the middle stitch with blue marker to indicate the increase for the next round.
  • sc in the next 15 ch. Now without joining carry on to the next round.

Round 2: Start the next round,
  • sc in the chain marked with red marker and switch red marker to this chain making it as the beginning of this round.
  • sc till you reach the ch marked with blue marker.
  • 3sc inc the one marked with blue marker and changing the blue marker to the middle sc of the increase, thereby marking it for the increase in the next round.
  • Sc in each st across till you reach the blue marker again.
  • Now, 3sc inc in the stitch marked with blue and change the marker to point to the middle stitch for increase in the next round. Sc in all the stitches till you reach the end of the round.

Repeat instructions from Round 2, for all rounds till you reach Round 6. Follow the table and graph to help you understand better.

Round 7:

sc till blue marker. 3sc inc, continue to sc till you reach the 17th stitch, when you change to light blue yarn for the tummy. 14sc, and change to dark blue and complete the round.

Round 8:

sc around, in back loops only. Making sure you follow the color changes according to the graph. Starting from this round on, tapestry crochet following the color changes in the graph.

Rnd 9 : 17 BLUE(2) | 13 BLUE(1) | 30 BLUE(2)
Rnd 10 : 18 BLUE(2) | 11 BLUE(1) | 31 BLUE(2)
Rnd 11 : 19 BLUE(2) | 9 BLUE(1) | 32 BLUE(2)
Rnd 12-17 : 60 BLUE(2)
Rnd 18 : 31 BLUE(2) | 29 BLUE(3)
Rnd 19 : 17 BLUE(3) | 13 BLUE(2) | 30 BLUE(3)
Rnd 20 : 18 BLUE(3) | 11 BLUE(2) | 31 BLUE(3)
Rnd 21 : 19 BLUE(3) | 9 BLUE(2) | 32 BLUE(3)
Rnd 22 : 20 BLUE(3) | 7 BLUE(2) | 33 BLUE(3)
Rnd 23-27 : 21 BLUE(3) | 6 BLUE(2) | 33 BLUE(3)
Rnd 28 : 21 BLUE(3) | 7 BLUE(2) | 32 BLUE(3)
Rnd 29-32 : 20 BLUE(3) | 9 BLUE(2) | 31 BLUE(3)

After you have done all the 32 rounds, finish off by doing invdec in the ends. The decreases are done only in the corners like how we did the base. To be honest the body skews a bit, but I have tried to accommodate that in the graph, and in the end it is barely noticeable.

I will tell you what I did here to make his uneven tail. I made three triangles using the pattern below. And, I joined them all and continued to sc around them. Start crocheting using the dark blue yarn.

Thanks!

Hello
I am making a Bingo. Very cute. I am confused with the nose. Is it worked in rows or rounds? How do I go from chain 8 to the next row?
Thanks
Mel

    The Bluey’s nose is worked in rounds, making an oval for the nose.
    Make a chain 8.
    Start to crochet from the second chain from the hook,
    Round 1: 6SC, 3SC inc in the last stitch,
    Start to work on the other side of the chain,
    5SC, 2SC inc in the last chain.

    And continue along for the next few rounds, hope that helps. ?
    Thank you.

Hi there, love the pattern. I just need a little help with decrease within round 8. The last 3 rounds of the light blue decrease I don’t understand. Can you please write it for me? Thanks for a great pattern. 🙂 Kristy

Loving this pattern and it’s turning out great but it’s very confusing to finish off the body once you get the the decreases. How many rows do you do? The graph doesn’t show where you color change. Very frustrating. When do you add blueys spots? There’s no instructions on those.



    Divya
    September 4, 2020 at 1:08 am

    Thank you for the feedback. I’ve worked on the graph and I have a written pattern for the body now. Hope it makes it easier to show where I’ve done the color changes. I’m still working on how to write a pattern on how I did the decreases, please bear with me while I make updates.



Taylor

I am curious on how to “close off the eyebrows” and how to sew blueys spots on.
Loving the pattern so far. Thanks!

dear Taylor,
this is from the link pattern:
The decreases are done in the same order as we’ve done the increases. So, we’ll be doing 6 rounds of decreases, and then when we are left with just 24 stitches in the round, we’ll sl st it close.
