Tigger Pattern

Winnie the Pooh and friends were some of my favourite characters when growing up. From furry diaries to carpets and blankets, it had to be Winnie the Pooh themed. So of course I had to recreate some of these loveable characters as amigurumis. They are all designed with chenille yarn to make them extra squishy. (It’s important that you use the yarns listed below or I can’t guarantee that the result will be the same.) Tigger here is quite a lot bigger than Eeyore so if you’re looking for a larger Amigurumi he’s the one to make!

Please note, this pattern is for personal use only.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing the muzzle to the head.

Assembly:
The muzzle will be sewn on to the decreasing side of the head to keep the neater looking stitches at the back of the head. Sew the muzzle to the head around round 14, stuff as you go along.

Head part 3:
Now you’ll work as you would in a magic ring but instead of joining after round 1, you’ll chain 1 at the end of each round and turn your work to get a half circle.
1. Using colour B work 6 sc in magic ring (6) ch1, turn.
2. Inc in each st (12) ch1, turn.
3. Sc in each st, ch1, turn.
4. *1 sc, 1 inc** repeat * to ** 6 times (18) ch1, turn.
5. Sc in each st
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing the eye area to the head.

Assembly:
Sew in place just above the muzzle, it should stretch to between round 9 and 10 of the head. Make sure you stretch the sides so the width is approximately the same as the muzzle.
Using a long tail of colour A, make 2 long stitches across the muzzle to cover up where the two parts join.
For the eyes, these will sit on bottom of the half circle, just above the muzzle. Using colour C, make a stitch on the outside of round 1, across the height of one stitch. Go over the same stitch 4 times.
For the eyebrows, these will sit just above where the half circle ends. Using colour C, count 4 stitches in between, make a stitch across 3 stitches down the side of the half circle, go over once more.

Nose:
1. Using colour D, make a magic ring, chain 3.
2. In the magic ring make the following stitches: 2 tr, 2 dc,
2 hdc, 1 sc, 2hdc, 2dc, 2 tr, chain 3, sl st in to the magic ring.
Now tighten the magic ring and you should have a heart shaped nose.

Assembly:
Stitch in place just above round 1 to between round 6 and 7 of
the muzzle.

Mouth:
The mouth is sewn on in between round 6 and 7, make a stitch across the
full length with colour C, don’t secure in place yet. The middle of the mouth will sit between round 4 and 5 so make sure you’re happy with the position before securing in place. You can do this by using a bit of glue or making 3 stitches in colour C by doing a loop around the mouth in the same stitch.
