Free Dodomeki from Bob’s Burgers Amigurumi Pattern

I love Bob’s Burgers. And as a tribute to show my love for the show, I decided a while ago that I would create the 5 main stuffed toys from the episode Flu-ouise (Season 7, Episode 1). It’s been a while since that episode first aired, but I’m finally doing it!

Meet Dodomeki! Dodomeki is honestly one of the weirdest creatures I have ever made. Although she’s a bit creepy looking, she has an ugly-cute, alien-like quality that I’m really into.

The name Dodomeki is inspired by a Japanese mythological monster. In Japanese folklore, the Dodomeki is a monster that takes the form of women who are cursed to have eyes all along their arms. They are pretty creepy looking, so Google at your own risk if you’re feeling curious (but don’t say I didn’t warn you!).

To create this stuffed toy, I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran from LoveCrafts. I chose to work with Paintbox Yarns for this project because it comes in so many colours and makes colour-matching for this specific project so easy. However, you can use any cotton yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn.

For this pattern, I used roughly 90-110g of Dusty Lilac (2-3 skeins of yarn), 10g of Red Wine (< 1 skein), 40g of Pale Lilac (1 skein), 20g of Pistachio Green (< 1 skein), 20g of Champagne White (< 1 skein), and a little bit of Pure Black for the pupils.

Dodomeki measures to be about 10 inches (25cm) tall. The difficulty level of this pattern is Intermediate and this pattern is written in US crochet terminology. If you’re just starting out on your amigurumi journey, you can check out some of the simpler free patterns on the Blog!

  • To stuff the head properly, place your hand in the mouth as you are stuffing the head to prevent overstuffing in the mouth area.
  • Do not over-stuff the head. Slowly layer the stuffing into the head and compressing as you stuff.

Tie a quintuple overhand knot (This video below demonstrates a quadruple overhand knot, just add one more loop over.) Leave two tails for each pupil. You will need the tails to be long enough to make another quintuple overhand knot later. See Assembly for photo.



Assembly

  • Pin 2 medium and 2 big teeth (big teeth towards the centre) onto the top part of the mouth. Sew in place.
  • Pin 2 medium and 2 small teeth (medium teeth towards the centre) onto the bottom part of the mouth. Sew in place.

  • Insert the tails of the pupil through the centre of the eye piece.
  • Turn around and tie a quintuple overhand knot on the back side to secure the pupil in place.
  • Pin the eyes onto the Head. The top of the first eye should be at Row 13 or 14. The top of the other two eyes should start a row above the bottom of the first eye, with 8 sts between the eyes. Sew in place.
