Batman Minion

When I started to crochet, I had no idea that the world of Amigurumi existed.  I can’t explain how excited I was to know that not only could I make tea cozies and doilies but I could also crochet animals and dolls and toys!  Since discovering this super fun and cute world of crochet, I’ve been hooked (literally!) since.

I was so used to working in rounds that join rather than continuous rounds.  Also using little tiny hooks is a big change too.  I know a certain little boy who loves both Batman and Dispicable Me and that’s where I came up with the idea to make a Batman Minion.  I started hunting for a pattern and luckily for me someone had thought of that exact idea!  I bought the pattern from JAMigurumi on Etsy and got to work right away.

Here he is mid-production with no accessories yet…

At the time I did not have any safety eyes nor could I find them in any store ANY WHERE.  Trust me, it was a lengthy hunt.  I finally decided to buy them online and paid for shipping which was the only thing I was trying to avoid in the first place.  I bought them from 6060 on Etsy as well.  I first tried to use a black piece of rubber but it did not want to stick. I am happy I did though because I’ve used these eyes for so many different projects now and they really make a big difference.

*The Batman symbol is very tricky to cut!  Make sure you have sharp scissors because it is small and precise..

I was so happy with the finished product and so was the little guy I made it for. 🙂

  2. I would love to keep this but just bigger! Is there a bigger pattern size? Or a way to change the pattern to adjust? I think 5 inches is way too small for the child I want to make it for :(.

    Thanks

    1. I’m sure you could make it using some thicker yarn and a larger hook size. Another thing to try is using 2 strands of the same yarn and a larger hook. Good luck 😊
