Free amigurumi pattern: Tuxedo Sam

Tuxedo Sam is a tubby little Sanrio penguin who loves to eat.

He likes to be called Tuxedo-san; Sam is too old-fashioned, he thinks.

For easy sewing, flatten the edges of the hat first.

Bowtie:

With red embroidery floss and a 1.75mm hook:

Chain 5

Round 1: Starting in second chain from hook, sc in the next 3sc, 3sc in the last sc.

Round 2: Rotate the foundation row, don’t turn it. Sc in the next 3sc, 3sc in the last sc.

Round 3: Rotate again. Sc in the next 3sc, 3sc in the last sc.

Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.

Weave the long end of the embroidery floss to the centre then make three loops over the piece to shape the bow.

Tie a knot with the shorter end at the back.

Crochet an oval…
And loop, loop, loop.

Assembly

  • Sew on the beak.
  • Flatten the white tummy piece and sew it on the body.
  • Sew on the feet and arms.
  • Add some stuffing to the sailor hat to keep it in shape. Flatten the brim on Tuxedo-san’s body and sew it on – be sure to sew on the protruding part of the hat so the edges can be folded up later. Curve up the ends when you’re done.
  • Sew on the red bow.
  • Ta da!

      1. Hi Dena,

        Just joined your group! Glad to meet all of you 🙂 I will be creating another Sanrio free pattern soon. Will let you know once I’m done! 🙂 Happy crocheting!

    1. Hi erika!

      Sure! Do send me a link of the pattern so I can include it here as well! Looking forward to seeing your version of Tuxedo-san!

    1. Hi there! Ooh I love it! Yours look ultra cute! So glad you like it 🙂 Do check back in the following weeks as I am planning an extra exciting pattern! 🙂

    best regards,
    Amy.

    1. Hi Anxo!

      Thank you so much for sharing your cute little penguin with me! I love it! I think it looks so sweet and mild in grey. Hope to see more of your work! 🙂

      1. how do you weave? also where is the embroidery dark brown floss used? sorry i must be blind if if there!

  2. Am going to attempt this! Haha! I’m very new to all of this, so am a bit unsure of the webbed feet and the bow-tie, but he’s too lovely not to give a shot!

  3. I made one as a teacher gift, if I can part with him, that is. Here you can see my little Tuck finished. Also, this may be a double post, I am not sure whether my previous post went through or not.

  4. love the lil guy! currently making one for a baby shower gift. had a question, what is an inv dec? i have never seen that term before. please help 🙂 thanks!

    1. Hi Jen! That refers to an invisibl decrease. Just put your hook through the front loop of the next two stitches (without yarning over)’ then yarn over and pull through the two loops, yarn over and pull through remaining two loops. (hope i got that right!) 🙂

    1. Yes you may sell the finished doll if you include a mention that it is based on an amiguruMEI pattern. Do share pictures of your work and link back to us so we can see what you’re up to from time to time 🙂

  5. Hi
    It’s so cute . I’m trying to make this but stuck in tummy part. It’s not coming out properly.. It’s coming in circle then it’s getting depth.. I’m just lost here , could you please help me out . Thanks

    1. Hi Priya! Don’t worry! I think you should be on the right track. All you have to do is flatten the piece when you’re done. What ‘flatten’ means here is that instead of stuffing the piece like your usual amigurumi pieces, just flatten the piece like you would flatten a beanie hat 🙂 hope you get what I mean!
