FREE AMIGURUMI PATTERN: Squid Game Worker

Every year at around mid-October I start a Halloween related pattern, and every year, without fail, Halloween comes and goes and the pattern remains half crocheted. Or even, just an idea in my head that I never start.

But then The Squid Game happened. I LOVED the show and I wanted so badly to crochet one of the Game staff. And then I realized that it would be perfect as a Halloween pattern. Win-win!

You can adapt the shape on the mask to make a worker, a soldier or a manager. I chose the circle because it’s the easiest to make, but if you are struggling to make a square of a triangle with the crocheted strip, you can use cut felt instead.

Ready to make the scariest figure of the most popular TV-show of the moment? Get everything ready!

MATERIALS
– 1 ball yarn of red or dark pink, 1 ball yarn black, and a bit of white yarn.
– A 3.5 mm hook, or the most fitting hook for your yarn
– Stuffing, tapestry needle, stitch marker and ball head pins.
