Among Us – turning a hat into a character
So, if you live under a rock, you may not have seen any of these “Among Us” toys, hats, etc. I admit, it took me longer than most to figure out why everyone kept using the phrase “sus”.
My bestie asked me to make her son a stuffy and a hat.
I *mostly* followed a pattern I found online for the little amigurumi guy. I couldn’t get the eye… goggle… face thing? I don’t know what it is, but mine wasn’t working so I had to free hand it a bit.
There are lots of free patterns out there, make sure you do use a FREE one because the creators of Among Us have been clear about their wishes: read about that here.
So, here is my little guy:
See his little wolf ears? Special request. I did 3 chains in a magic circle, then 2 single crochets in each stitch around (6). I then did one more round of sc. Flatten and sew on.
The pattern I followed made weird goggles so I kind if squished and shaped them into something I liked better.
Then I made a hat. A basic beanie.
For the matching wolf ears I had to do a lot more than 3 rounds lol
For these big wolf ears I started with 4 single crochets in a magic circle. Increase all the way around (that means put 2 sc in each stitch).
I didn’t join the rows, I was just working in rounds, so make sure you grab a stitch marker!
3rd round: repeat *sc, inc* (12)
4: repeat *2 sc, inc* (16)
5: repeat *inc, 3 sc* (20) (I moved the increase to avoid a spiral line)
6: repeat *4 sc, inc* (24)
7: repeat * 2 sc, inc, inc, 8 sc* (26)
8: repeat *inc, 12 sc* (28)
9 sc around. Cut and tie off. Leave a long tail for sewing.
Flatten the cone into an ear. Make sure you curve it strongly. Use stitch markers to place both ears on the hat before sewing.
You want them to match up! And you don’t want to have to cut your work off and redo it.
The goggle part on the hat is a 2D item instead of 3D like on the little amigurumi.
To make an oval:
Chain 17, sc in 2nd from hook and across (16).
Don’t turn your work, sc in each stitch along the bottom of your work (+ 16, 32 for this round).
Round 3: increase (put 2 sc in the same stitch), sc x14, inc in both of the next 2 stitches, sc 14, inc.
Round 4: inc, inc, sc x 14, inc x 3, sc 14, inc. Cut and tie off, leave a long tail for sewing.
Give it a try!
