Mini Om Nom Pattern

Bonjour everyone,

I went looking for the missing Om Nom, and I found it lurking underneath the bed.  Now I can share the pattern with you!

Materials

Size G (4.00 MM) hook

Worsted weight yarn in green

White felt

Black & white thread for embroidering features and sewing

Sewing needle and yarn needle

Teeny black buttons (optional)

Small amount of stuffing

Pattern Notes

The only stitch used is a single crochet.  You will have to know how to decrease, though.  I used a sc2tog (insert hook into 1st st, YO pull up a loop, insert hook into 2nd st, YO pull up another loop, YO and pull through all 3 loops) but an Invisible Decrease would work just as well.

This is worked in a spiral.  Do not join rounds, use a stitch marker to keep your place.  When instructed to fasten off, make a slip stitch into the next stitch and cut the yarn.

Body

R1: In Magic Ring, sc 6

R2: *Sc 1, then sc 2 in next st* around.

R3: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next st* around.

R4: *Sc 3, 2 sc in next st* around.

R5: *Sc 4, 2 sc in next st* around.

R6: *Sc 5, 2 sc in next st* around.

R7: *Sc 6, 2 sc in next st*  around.

R8-13: Sc 1 in each st around.

Embroider face on Om Nom now.  Cut two circles from white felt.  I sewed a small black button onto each for the pupils, but you can embroider them if you prefer.  Sew these onto the face.  Then, cut four triangles for the teeth.  I like to sew these on in the desired position and then embroider the mouth with black thread on top of that.  It makes the teeth look like they’re coming out from beneath it.

After you’ve embroidered the face, then stuff!  The firmer the better, because stuffing relaxes over time.


Body Base

R1: In Magic Ring, sc 6.

R2: Sc 2 in each st around.

R3: *sc 1, 2 sc in next st* around.

R4: *sc 2, 2 sc in next st* around.

Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.  Sew to Om Nom body on the bottom.

Front Legs (Make 2)

R1: In Magic Ring, sc 6.

R2: *sc 1, 2 sc in next st* around

R3-5: Sc 1 in each st around.

R6: *Sc 1, sc2tog* around.

Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.  Stuff.  Sew the open end together, sewing through both loops of the single crochets, and sew to Om Nom body.  You might want to wait until you’ve finished the hind legs so that you can space it out better.

Hind Legs (Make 2)

R1: In Magic Ring, sc 6.

R2: *sc 1, 2 sc in next st* around.

R3: *sc 2, 2 sc in next st* around.

R4-6: Sc 1 in each st around.

R7: *Sc 2, sc2tog* around.

R8: Sc 1 in each st around.

Fasten off and follow same method as front legs to sew to Om Nom body.

Antenna

R1: In magic ring, sc 6

R2: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next st* around.

R3&4: Sc 1 in each st around.

R5: *Sc 1, sc2tog* around.

R6: Sc 1, sc2tog, sc 1 in each of the remaining sts.

R7: Sc 1 in each st around.

You can add more rounds if you want the antenna to be longer.  When you’re happy with the length, fasten off, stuff, and sew it to the top of Om Nom’s head.  Congratulations, you have crocheted an amigurumi Om Nom!

I hope you like the pattern!  I will post the pattern for the other smaller Om Nom sometime, too.  Au revoir.

EDITED 4/23/13:

When following my own pattern (very strange) I made several changes:

Front Legs: 6 sc in a Magic Ring, sc around for 2 more rounds

Hind Legs: I used the Front Legs that are written in this pattern

I never really liked the abnormally large legs, but some of you might, so I’m leaving the pattern as is, just adding these notes.  I don’t have any pictures of the other Om Nom because it was given away, but I know I’ll forget my modifications if I don’t write it down. ;)
