How to Crochet Open Mouth Amigurumi

I’m excited to share with you guys how to crochet an Open Mouth Amigurumi!

If you’ve been following me for some time, you may have seen me use this technique on some of my amigurumi designs and crochet patterns.

I love how it makes the amigurumi look so happy with a big fat smile on its face.

On the flip side, you can also make it look more menacing and like it’s going to eat you by adding teeth as well!

Ok, well, maybe he doesn’t look so menacing and still looks pretty cute, but it’s all about how you make the face!

Here are some other amigurumis I’ve utilized the technique on, such as this charming Chameleon

This very happy Sackboy

And all these cute lil Bulbasaurs

The basic premise of the Open Mouth Amigurumi is you first create a small circle for the mouth.

Fold it in half and single crochet across the straight line.

This creates the top portion and bottom portion of the mouth. Once you make the head, you can attach the mouth with the top portion first, and then later the bottom portion.

It sounds complicated in writing, but honestly once you follow my pattern and tutorial below, you’ll be able to easily make these Open Mouth Amigurumis in no time at all.

I can’t wait for you guys to add this wonderful technique to your ami-making skills and repertoire. I’m also very curious what kind of projects you guys might end up creating using this pattern base and would definitely love to see! Be sure to tag me on my Instagram or Facebook.

I’ll be coming out with some new patterns in the near future which will use this very Open Mouth Amigurumi Base Pattern to create more cute crochet creatures, so be sure to subscribe to my blog to get all my pattern updates!
