Kogepan-chan free amigurumi pattern

6 Aug

Kogepan-chan is a burnt red bean bun character created by San-X.

The adorable brown bread boy is often in a foul mood – you would be too, if you were left forgotten in a sauna 30 minutes past your tolerance for furnace-hot air!

Make your own Kogepan-chan!

Materials

  • 2.50 mm hook
  • Similar sized yarn (bread brown)
  • Sewing thread (pink)
  • Embroidery floss (black)
  • Darning needle
  • 2 x small 4mm brads (white)
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Small pebbles (to weigh Kogepan-chan down)

 

Head

With bread brown 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 – 16: Sc in each sc around (54)

Round 18: * Inv dec, sc in next 6 sc*, repeat 6 times (42)

Round 19: * Inv dec, sc in next 5 sc*, repeat 6 times (36)

Pop in the white brads for the eyes – it should fall right below round 13. There should be a space of nine stitches between the eyes.

With black embroidery floss, sew two small lines in the centre of the face. These will be the nose and mouth.

With pink thread, sew three shorter diagonal lines below each eye to give Kogepan-chan a flustered look.

Round 20: * Inv dec, sc in next 4 sc*, repeat 6 times (30)

Round 21: *Inv dec, sc in next 3 sc*, repeat 6 times (24)

Round 22: *Inv dec, sc in next 2 sc*, repeat 6 times (18)

Begin stuffing the head.

Round 24: Inv dec all around (6)

Fasten off and weave in ends.

 

Body

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

Round 5 – 10: Sc in each sc around (24)

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Begin stuffing the body. Add some pebbles so Kogepan-chan can sit upright on his own.

 

Arms (make 2)

With bread brown yarn:

Round 1: 7 sc in magic circle (7)

Round 2 – 6: Sc in each sc around (7)

Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.

    Hi! I looooove your pattern for Kogepan. So kawaii!!
    Umm…please please please (infinity please) maybe could you make a pattern for Creampan? Am I allowed to ask that? Sorry. Nobody else has put up a pattern for him, and ever since I saw your Kogepan pattern I really really have been wanting to make his best friend! (Then I could also make Ichigopan with Creampan’s pattern!!) Soo sorry if me asking this is strange and/or not possible. 🙂
    Thank you so much, and all credit due to you of course! – Kireipan (not really) 😀

      Hi Kireipan!

      Will definitely keep Creampan in mind for a future pattern 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy Kogepan in the mean time!

        Thank you so much Meimoirs! 😀
