Amigurumis in 20 minutes or less!

If you're looking for quick and easy crochet projects that you can whip up as instant gratification, you've come to the right place! 

Here's my FREE pattern roundup of my speedy amigurumi designs that take 20 minutes or less to work up! I have the roundup broken down by time categories, so you can find a variety of amigurumi made in 10 minutes, 15 minutes, and 20 minutes! 

They work great as keychains, ornaments, or standalone stuffies. You can use them as quick projects in-between larger ones, stashbusters (great for using up yarn scraps), Valentine's Day class party favors, Easter egg stuffers, Christmas stocking stuffers, and more.  

Don't forget to save to your Pinterest crochet board for later~ 


There's a lot you can do with these fast, mini stuffies. Here are a few ideas! 
  • Last-minute gifts 
  • Stocking stuffers 
  • Class Valentine's Day presents
  • Non-candy Easter egg stuffers 
  • Claw machine prizes 
  • Craft fair stock
  • Backpack or purse accessories 

Adjusting a pattern for size

A quick note about sizing. If the finished size for one pattern comes out larger than you want, and the recommended yarn is thick, you can use the same pattern but with thinner yarns and a smaller hook to have a smaller end result. The main thing is to make sure you are using a suitable hook with your yarn that allows you to crochet tightly enough, so that gaps do not appear between the stitches.  Most of my patterns below are designed with super bulky (weight 6) plush yarn, and if you feel like the finished size is too large, you can follow the exact same pattern instructions using thinner yarns, such as medium (weight 4) yarn. Some of my favorite choices for medium weight yarn include: Lion Brand Heartland (100% acrylic and has many natural, earthy shades), Lion Brand's 24/7 Cotton Yarn (100% cotton that produces beautiful stitch definition), and Brava Worsted (100% acrylic, sturdy, and pretty good bang for your buck!)

New designs to come

This list is going to keep growing as I design more FAST amigurumi projects! I will be sure to add to it as they come.  Meanwhile, I'm also taking ideas on what you'd love to see. You can keep in touch with me through my mailing list by letting me know what you'd like me to design next!
