Junimo Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

An indie game that I have been quite addicted to recently is the farming simulator Stardew Valley. In Stardew Valley you inherit a rundown farm and through hard work try to rebuild it. During the game you will encounter the small forest spirits called Junimos which help you restore the town to its’ former glory. While Junimos don’t play a huge role in the game, there is just something so cute and adorable about them that I had to quickly make a pattern for them.

This post provides step-by-step instructions on how to crochet your own Junimo amigurumi. The Junimo Amigurumi stands around 3.5 inches tall and is 5.5 inches tall with the antenna. This pattern is a beginner/easy pattern as it uses basic crochet stitches and is a pretty quick pattern to complete.
