Crochet Corner: Scarecrow

About one year ago, I made this Scarecrow for CRAFT since they asked if I could design an amigurumi for Halloween.  I can’t believe another year has come and gone, and it’s already October with Halloween fast approaching!  You can read about how we made him and see many step-by-step pictures in this blog post here and get the free pattern HERE.  I thought I would show you some Scarecrows that have been made all around the world and remind you of this pattern in case you would like to make one this month too!

Rima from Syria was a beginner in crochet but that didn’t stop her from tackling amigurumi projects!  Rima excitedly sent me pictures of all her amigurumi creations, including the whole P.J. Teddy Family, a Spring Bunny, a Valentine Teddy and this Scarecrow 🙂  All of the details look fabulous, from the dainty little daisy to the cute little patch.  The flecks of gold in the green and brown yarn she used give this Scarecrow an interesting texture!

Almudena from Spain made her own Scarecrow and used different colours of yarn for his straw hair to add dimension!  It looks like he’s running towards someone to give them a great big hug 🙂  Almudena said that she really likes the hat and will use my pattern again to make it for another doll!

Nishant is a 15-year-old avid reader of my blog from India who loves to both knit and crochet amigurumi.  It’s exciting how crafting and crocheting is becoming more popular with younger people, and with males too!  I know the vast majority of my readers are female, so it’s nice to hear that guys are taking an interest in amigurumi and crocheting as well 🙂  Nishant’s scarecrow looks so friendly with his big eyes and sweet smile!  Great job with the hat too, Nishant!

Tiffany from Texas recently made her own Scarecrow, and he proudly sits ontop of her bookshelf!  She is thinking of names for her little buddy, and one possibility might be “Patch”- I love hearing about the creative names that people give to their amigurumi to really make them their own!  Glad you could make him in time for Halloween, Tiffany 🙂

Amy of “Creatively Inclined” from the United Kingdom named her Scarecrow “Tim”!  Looks like Tim is getting into some trouble while attempting to crochet himself a friend 😉  Love the creative posing, Amy!

Thank you for showing me pictures of your work, everyone 🙂  It still boggles my mind that people are reading my blog and following patterns that I’ve written from places as far away as Syria, Spain, India and the United Kingdom!  Everybody’s Scarecrows are very unique and cute, and it’s neat to see how people can interpret the same pattern very differently!  I love seeing your work, so please keep sending me pictures through e-mail (, twitter or facebook!  If you would like to make your own not-so-scary Scarecrow this fall, check out the step-by-step blog post HERE and the free pattern HERE
