Spelunky Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

Back in 2008 the roguelike platformer Spelunky was released. In Spelunky you play as an unnamed spelunker who is exploring ancient caves looking for treasure, rescuing damsels, and ultimately trying to find a way to escape. While Spelunky shared a lot of things in common with your traditional platformer, the one unique element in the game is that every cave in the game is procedurally generated meaning that every time you play the game the experience is different.

This week’s pattern is for the unnamed main character of Spelunky. This pattern creates an amigurumi that is around 8.5-9 inches tall. I would classify this pattern as moderately difficult due to the number of components you need to create to complete the project.

Note: This pattern is provided for free so I would appreciate that it not be used for commercial use. You may not copy this pattern and then try to sell it. I would appreciate that this pattern not be copied and posted in its’ entirety on other websites. Feel free to post images of your completed works wherever you want but a link back to this page would be appreciated.

Assembly

To assembly the hat you can either choose to sew the head lamp to the hat or you can just place it on top of the hat since it stays in place on its’ own.

Next I added the two arms to the body. One arm is sewn to each side of the body. Before sewing the arms to the body I would recommend using the jacket as a reference so the arms are placed in a position where the jacket can still be put on.

Next I added the legs to the bottom of the body. To sew the legs to the body I used some extra light brown yarn.
