Pachimari Amigurumi – Free Crochet Pattern

What does Pachimari amigurumi look like to you? It reminds me of an onion or a turnip head combined with tentacles like an octopus. Except the tentacles look leafy to me as well! So it seems like some strange hybrid plant-animal, but still very cute looking.

3 Happy Crochet Pachimaris

Pachimari is a mascot you can find in the game Overwatch. You can see it in the game often as a fun plushie to be won from an arcade claw machine.

Hmmm a hybrid-plant reminds me of my last released crochet pattern, Pikmin amigurumi. I seem to be on some kind of trend here! Here are my Pachimari amigurumi and crochet Pikmin together. I’m growing quite a hybrid collection!

And here’s our cat Hobbes just chilling with the Pachimari. Don’t they look like crawling babies?

The hardest part in designing crochet Pachimari amigurumi was figuring out how I wanted to do the leafy tentacles. I know I wanted the tentacles to point upward, so there was a lot of decreases and increases within the different rounds.

I made each tentacle leaf separately, but joined each tentacles to the previous one as I went. And at the end, I joined all the tentacles together to make a circle. I left the top open but I closed the bottom up by using single crochet decreasing rounds. In the end, it looks like a 4 pointed ninja star.

Amigurumi Pachimari Tentacles

I used felt to create the faces of the shape as they create a clean look. However you can create the Pachimari amigurumi face in many different ways including using safety eyes or embroidery floss. I used light pink felt for the cheeks and cut small oval shapes. And for the mouth, you can think of the shape as a tulip. It makes cutting out the shape that much easier! I like to make the pink tulip first and then create the black tulip behind it to give it a black border outline. I used Fabri-tac to glue them into place.

When you squeeze a Pachimari plushie, it likes to make a cute SQUEAK! To recreate that same fun sound, all you have to do is insert a squeaker toy into the Head part, stuff the rest with Polyfill, and then sew it on top of the Tentacle Leaf Set.

You have just created Tentacle #1.
Repeat Round 1-8 to create Tentacle #2, but DO NOT FASTEN OFF.
Join Tentacle #1 and Tentacle #2 together with sc across 2 by doing the following:
On Tentacle #1 count 5 sts over from last st made. Line that 5th stitch to the next stitch on Tentacle #2. You will do sc stitches by going through both layers of Tentacle #1 and Tentacle #2 to join them together. Fasten off.
WATCH the Tentacle Leaf video tutorial to see how I connect the Tentacles together.

Repeat Rounds 1-8 again to create Tentacle #3. Count 5 sts over on Tentacle #2 and line up with the next st on Tentacle #3 and join together with sc across 2 sts.

Repeat Rounds 1-8 again to create the last Tentacle #4. Count 5 sts over on Tentacle #3 and line up with the next st on Tentacle #4 and join together with sc across 2 sts.
Fasten off, and leave a long tail.

Connect Tentacle #4 to Tentacle #1 by using a yarn needle and sewing together across 2 sts.

Now flip over the tentacle leaf set so that you are on the bottom/back side of the tentacle leaf. You will know the front from the back because the front will mostly have tentacles pointing a bit upward. We will now close up the bottom hole with sc.

Sl st onto the bottom hole of the Tentacle Leaf Set.
Tentacle Leaf Set Bottom:
Round 1: Sc in each st around – 12 sc.
(You will want to have 3 sc for each Tentacle)
Round 2: Sc2tog around – 6 sc.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail.
Sew closed on bottom and stuff the Tentacle Leaf Set.
