Q*Bert Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Hobbies

While not nearly as popular as it once was, in the early 1980s Q*Bert was one of the most popular arcade games. For those of you who have never played Q*Bert the basic premise of the game is to avoid the enemies while jumping on all of the cubes to change them into the target color. Q*Bert was one of the first marketable video game characters along with Pac-Man. Q*Bert is also generally considered the first character in video game history to swear. While Q*Bert has had several sequels created over the years, the game was never able to sustain its’ early success. In recent years though Q*Bert has had a small resurgence due to cameos in the movies Wreck It Ralph and Pixels.

This pattern creates a Q*Bert amigurumi that stands approximately five inches tall. I would consider this project to be on the easier side since it doesn’t require any complicated stitches and doesn’t have as many parts as a lot of my other patterns.
