Mr. Saturn Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

Mr. Saturn is not what I would call a well known video game character. Many people only recognize Mr. Saturn as a pretty worthless item in the Super Smash Bros series that you can throw at other players. Mr. Saturn is more than a pointless Super Smash Bros. item though. Mr. Saturn actually comes from the Super Nintendo cult classic Earthbound. While Mr. Saturn(s) are not main characters in Earthbound, they are one of the most memorable characters in my opinion. In the original Earthbound they provide aid to the main heroes. Mr. Saturn(s) also appears in Mother 3 but since Nintendo has still not released the game outside of Japan I have not yet been able to play it.

Despite being kind of obscure, Earthbound is probably my favorite video game of all time. What really stands out to me is the creativity and originality in the game. I still remember renting the game from a local rental store when the game first came out. The main reason I even looked at it was because it looked so weird. Eventually I ended up buying it on clearance a year or two later which is kind of funny based on how much the game is currently worth.

For most patterns I will only make one version of the character but I ended up making two versions of Mr. Saturn. I originally made the larger Mr. Saturn which ended up quite a bit larger than I wanted since Mr. Saturn(s) are actually quite small. The larger Mr. Saturn is about eight inches tall. After creating a few more amigurumis I made a second smaller Mr. Saturn which stands at about 3.5-4 inches tall. Both patterns can be found below.

Assembly

You now have all of the individual pieces of Mr. Saturn completed. You now have to add the pieces together.

First you should add the nose. The nose should be added to the body a couple stitches below the eyes in the center of the body. Use the excess yarn on the nose to sew it to the body. You should sew the nose on so it points downward.

Next you can add the eyebrows. The eyebrows should be placed directly above the eyes with one or two stitches between the eyebrows and the eyes. Use the excess yarn from the eyebrows to sew them to the body.

To attach the feet position them so the back of the feet are near the back of the body. I would recommend holding both feet up to the body at the same time to find the best placement for each foot. Use the remaining yarn from the feet to sew them to the body.

To attach the bow insert the pipe cleaner into two holes at the top of the head. Pull the pipe cleaner through the second hole and start wrapping it around the rest of the pipe cleaner to stabilize it. If the pipe cleaner doesn’t stay in place you can use part of another pipe cleaner to help stabilize it further.

To make the “whiskers” you need to insert pipe cleaners into a stitch to the side of the nose and then pull it out the next stitch. Wrap the two sides of the pipe cleaner together to stabilize the whisker. Add two whiskers to both sides of the nose a couple stitches away from the nose with one whisker a couple stitches above the other whisker.
