Lemmings Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

When I was a child one of my favorite video games was Lemmings. For those of you who are not familiar with the game, I would classify it as a puzzle game. You are given a group of Lemmings and the goal is to safely get them from the start to finish. The Lemmings leave the entrance and then follow a straight line until they either hit a wall, reach the exit or die. Your objective is to use the Lemmings abilities such as bridge building and digging in order to create a safe path to the exit. The fact that the Lemmings were cute helped but the thing I liked most about Lemmings when I was a child was that it was a challenging puzzle game. While I have not played a Lemmings game in many years, I still have fond memories of the game so I decided to make a Lemmings amigurumi.

The Lemmings amigurumi stands approximately five inches tall. I would classify the pattern as pretty easy as it doesn’t have a lot of pieces and mostly uses basic crochet stitches. The most time consuming part of the pattern is adding the individual hairs to the hair piece.

Crocheted Hair for Lemmings Amigurumi

If you want to add the individual hairs you will cut the green yarn into 1.5 to 2 inch strips. Then you will insert your crochet hook into one of the stitches. Hold both ends of a piece of yarn together to create a loop which you insert into your crochet hook. Pull the yarn through the stitch and then use a SL stitch to secure the hairs in place. Continue this process until you have added the desired amount of hair.
