‘Lil Alien

Before you get started…

Ingredients

01 2.75mm(US C-2) crochet hook
02 Aran or worsted weight yarn:
• Color A (lower body and legs)
• Color B (head stripes and suckers)
• Color C (headstripes)
• Color D (tongue)

03 Tapestry needle
04 Stuffing

Gauge

5-rnd gauge circle = 1.75”/4.5cm
Gauge isn’t terribly important in amigurumi, so it is okay to use a slightly larger hook if that is all you have. However, you don’t want to see stuffing through the stitches, so don’t get too big. Also, remember that if you scale up your ami, you may want larger notions (like snap eyes).
