    You rock! Is it hard to make a pattern? I have done some free-form crochet before, but not that I could ever reproduce. Thanks for taking the time to troubleshoot through making this little guy and sharing the results!

    Awesome pattern, working it up right now for a Christmas gift. Just one little thing I found wrong… Yoshi doesn’t have a shell on his back, he’s wearing a saddle for Mario. I modified mine a bit to look more like a saddle. Other than that, my son is going to love this! Thanks so much for posting!

    Hi Ami,

    Great pattern, my grandson actually asked for a yarn yoshi, and I am happy to make him one.
    Having some trouble with the feet, on Row 6b, to find the back stitch on row 5, is inside the shoe, that isn’t working for me? Mine never curled over like yours is in the picture? Don’t know what I have done wrong?

      6a I did in the back loop, and 6b I did in the front loop (opposite from what is listed in the pattern) and it turned out looking like the picture.

    Hi Ami,

    Great pattern, my grandson actually asked me to make him a yarn yoshi. I am happy to do it.
    However I am having some difficulty on the feet Row 6b, finding the back stitch on row 5, which would be coming from the inside of the shoe? Mine did roll over on the top like yours did? Any suggestions?

    “Round 7: Sc in next 4 st, 2 sc in next 6 st, sc in next 8 st – 24 sc.
    Round 8: Sc in each st around.
    Round 9: Sc in next 16 st, sc2tog 4 times – 18 sc.”

    If I decrease 4 times wouldn’t that be 20, instead of 8?

      My little boy did note, though, that the spikes should be orange. {rolling eyes} I think he’s cute no matter what!

    Cute! How tall is the finished product? I saw the big Yoshi and was hoping for that size.
    Thanks!

      This one is a small one and is only about 6 in tall. The larger Yoshi pattern is available in both my Etsy or Ravelry shop.

    I’m confused about the head section round 10. What does that mean you will have 18 sc? Could you maybe post a picture of what it would look like after that step??

    I have a silly question I hope you can help! Is this pattern worked in the round, or is it Slip Stitched and move up to next row worked, if that makes sense.? This will be my first attempt, finally got my yarn the right color we want it. 🙂

      Hi Helen, it’s not a silly question at all. And no, you do not have to slip stitch at the end of the rounds. I also have some amigurumi video tutorials on my YouTube channel so you can see how I do the complete process from beginning to end. https://www.youtube.com/c/amiamour Hope that helps! Happy crocheting!
