Amigurumi Eeyore – Part 4

I am excited because this cute little Eeyore finally has a body! And a tail! It’s been a fun project and I’ve enjoyed breaking it up into manageable parts. I hope the tutorials have helped new crocheters and amigurumists in particular. I’d love to know what you thought of the crochet along and if you’d like me to post more amigurumi in this way. And if you’ve been working on this amigurumi Eeyore I’d love to see what you came up with!

Fasten off and leave very long tail for sewing, though you might need extra yarn as you go along.

Neck
With dark blue and 3.50mm hook
Round 1: pick up sc in 3rd st from row 1 of body piece 2 and sc around (28 sts)
Round 2: [sc in next 3sts, dec] around, sc in rem sts, do not turn
Round 3: sc in next 12sts along back
Fasten off and leave long tail. Stuff with fibrefill.

Tail
With dark blue and 3.00mm hook
Leave a long starting strand of yarn and then chain 13. Fasten off leaving approx. 1″ for fraying.

The body is made from the neck down. Sew the bottom seam together and then line up both pieces and sew together, first on one side and then the other. I like to use stitch markers to hold the pieces together as I sew. Once the seams are joined, turn the body inside out.

The neck is worked in continuous rounds so there is no joining or turning at the end. With the back facing you, pick up a single crochet in the 3rd stitch from the right and continue to single crochet around. You might be thinking, “Couldn’t I just pick up a stitch anywhere?” Well, I’m glad you asked because the reason the neck round starts in that specific stitch is so it begins to shape the neck, or the gloomy Eeyore hump. When you’ve completed the neck, stuff with fiberfill – the amount depends on how firm or squishy you want your Eeyore but I recommend going more on the firm side so the stuffing fills out the back of the neck, but not so firm that the body topples over from having a round base.

Position the head over the neck opening as though Eeyore is touching his chin to his chest hehe…It’s a little awkward but just take your time to evenly sew the head on.

Sew the limbs.

Finally, to make the tail, leave a long end and then make the 13 chains. Fasten off leaving about an inch of yarn at the end. Pull the strands apart to make it look more like hair and then trim. Pull a small scrap of pink yarn through the last chain and tie a bow just above the frayed “hair”. With yarn needle sew the tail to Eeyore. Done!!
