Demogorgon (Stranger Things) Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

One of the biggest television hits of last year was the Netflix original series Stranger Things. Stranger Things is a 1980’s inspired sci-fi/light horror show about a small town where a boy disappears as mysterious forces begin affecting the town. In order to get ready for the second season which comes out later this year I decided to create an amigurumi for the first season’s monstrous villain, The Demogorgon. While the creature is pretty intimidating in the show, in amigurumi form the creature is surprisingly cute.

This post provides step-by-step instructions on how to crochet your own Demogorgon amigurumi. The Demogorgon amigurumi figure stands approximately 10 inches tall. I would classify the pattern as moderately difficult. The pattern doesn’t require any really difficult stitches but requires more than most of my other patterns so far. The Demogorgon also requires quite a few different pieces to be made which makes it a longer pattern to complete.

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.

All of the individual pieces are now complete so it is time to sew them to the body. I began by sewing the mouth flaps to the smaller section of the body which is the Demogorgon’s head. Use the center mouth as a guide to space out the different mouth flap pieces. The two small mouth flaps should be on the top and bottom while the larger mouth flaps should be on the left and right sides.

Next I added the center mouth in the middle of the mouth flaps.
