Ness Amigurumi Pattern: Geeky Crochet

Regular readers of this blog know that my favorite video game of all time is the Super Nintendo cult classic Earthbound. For those of you who are not familiar with Earthbound it was a quirky turn based RPG where you played as a group of kids who had to band together to save the world. After creating a Mr. Saturn pattern a couple weeks ago I decided that it was time to make a Ness amigurumi. In addition to being the main protagonist of Earthbound, Ness has also been a regular character in the Smash Bros series.

This post provides step-by-step instructions on how to crochet your own Ness amigurumi.  The Ness amigurumi stands around 10-11 inches tall. I would classify this pattern as moderately difficult. None of the stitches used in the pattern are difficult but the pattern requires you to make quite a few different pieces to complete it.

What Do You Need to Know

Difficulty: Moderate

In order to follow the Ness pattern you will need to know how to do the following stitches:

Next you will attach the legs to the torso. Use the excess peach/skin tone yarn at the top of the legs to sew them to the body so the feet face forward. I would recommend choosing the side with the abrupt changes in color to be the back of the amigurumi since you can then use the backpack to cover up the changes in colors.
