Free amigurumi pattern: Purin

Free amigurumi pattern: Purin

Purin-chan is a custard-like golden retriever first created by Sanrio in 1996.

In Japanese, “purin” means “pudding”.

Like Tuxedo-san, Purin-chan loves to eat.

To curb his growing appetite, he occasionally exercises.

Make your own Purin-chan!

Materials

  • 2.50 mm hook
  • Similar sized yarn (lemon yellow and dark brown)
  • Embroidery floss (dark brown)
  • Darning needle
  • 2 x small 2.5mm round beads
  • Pink brads (optional)
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Small pebbles (to weigh Purin-chan down)

 

Body

With lemon yellow yarn:

Round 1: 6 sc in magic circle (6)

Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)

Round 3: *2 sc, sc in next sc*, repeat 6 times (18)

Round 4: *2sc, sc in next 2 sc*, repeat 6 times (24)

Round 5: *2 sc, sc in next 3 sc*, repeat 6 times (30)

Round 6: *2 sc, sc in next 4 sc*, repeat 6 times (36)

Round 7: *2 sc, sc in next 5 sc*, repeat 6 times (42)

Round 8: *2 sc, sc in next 6 sc*, repeat 6 times (48)

Round 9: *2 sc, sc in next 7 sc*, repeat 6 times (54)

Round 10 – 23: Sc in each sc around (54)

Sew on the small round beads as eyes – it should fall on round 12.

With dark brown embroidery floss, sew on the nose and mouth.

Pop in the pink brads (optional) for a blushing effect.

Round 24: *Inv dec, sc in next 7 sc*, repeat 6 times (48)

Round 28: *Inv dec, sc in next 3 sc*, repeat 6 times (24)

Round 29: *Inv dec, sc in next 2 sc*, repeat 6 times (18)

Begin stuffing the body. Add some small pebbles so Purin-chan will stand upright on its own. Top off with more stuffing.

Round 30: *Inv dec, sc in next 1 sc*, repeat 6 times (12)

Fasten off and weave in ends.

With dark brown yarn:

Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)

Round 3: *2 sc, sc in next sc*, repeat 6 times (18)

Round 4: *2sc, sc in next 2 sc*, repeat 6 times (24)

Beret (tip)

With dark brown yarn:

Chain 4

Round 1: Starting in second chain from hook, sc in the next 2sc, slip stitch in the last sc.

Fold the piece in half and sew it (with a slight protrusion) onto the centre of the beret base.

  • Sew on the tiny tail.
  • Sew on the beret.
  • Ta da!

  1. Thank you so much again for sharing your wonderful patterns! Sanrio is my altime favorite and I have been searching for patterns like these to make something for myself! Do you think there could be a Pandapple pattern in the future? :3 He’s my favorite!

  2. I love this!!! And I think it would be nice if you made a pandapple pattern(: Im working on a big chubby mamegoma one after the tiny tiny one i made..

  3. Hi! 😀 Thanks for sharing this set of instructions with us! I find Purin very cute!
    I like arts and crafts a lot but do not understand the instructions. Any recommendations for a book that could teach me the art of amigurumi? Thank you! 😀

    p.s. I ❤ your blog! ^^

      1. Hi Meimoirs! Thanks for the recommendation! Sorry i didn’t specify earlier, but I’m a beginner to Amigurumi so that’s why I don’t understand the instructions. 😀 Not because the instructions are unclear. :D:D:D:D:D

  4. Hi!
    Thats so cute, i cant even say how cute it is!!!
    i tried to use your pattern, but somehow i got stuck…. it might be, because english isnt my native language, and i am a bit new to amigurumi as well…
    if you have time, could you please help me? ( am obviously to stupid to find out myself….)

    “*2 sc, sc in next sc*, repeat 6 times (18)”

    do you mean 2 sc in the same sc, then one in the next?

    i am really sorry for such a stupid question… but i would love to create this cuteness as a gift for my mother, and it should be at least half as cute as yours!

    1. hi there Diana!
      I usually crochet my dolls in the round (or in a spiral). I
      don’t end each round with a slip stitch 🙂
      But if you’re more comfortable doing it that way, I believe that you can simply make some adjustments, and the results will turn out quite similarly.
      Let me know if it works out for you!

    1. Hey Diana!

      *Sc2together simply means a decrease. I usually use invisible decreases for my patterns, but certain parts do require a normal decrease, hence the sc2together. Hope this helps!

  5. Hi Mei!

    Thank you for the very beautiful patterns! I’m making a Purin for my friend because it’s her fav character.

    However I’m stuck tag the ears where I’m supposed to “sc2tog, sc in next 2” where I’m supposed to have 12 stitches from 18 stitches. I keep having 2 additional stitches.

    I went to find out what is the difference between invisible decrease and sc2tog and I cannot seem to find any difference between the 2.

    Would appreciate if you could give some pointers. Thank you!

  6. Hi Mei!

    Thank you for the beautiful patterns! Am making a Purin for my friend cos it’s her fav character but I seem to be stuck at the ears.

    I can’t figure out Round 7 “sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc”. I’m supposed to decrease from 18st to 12st but I keep having 2 extra stitches.

    I tried to find out what is the diff between sc2tog and decrease but the stitches look the same to me.

    Would appreciate any pointers. Thank you!

    1. Hello!! Ohh i’m not sure what went wrong but the fastest way to clean that up is to make 2 extra decreases. This means that your ultimate goal will be to ensure that the round has only 12 stitches left. The differences wont be too apparent 🙂 Try it! 🙂
