Free Rocket Ship Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

When I first decided to create the Space Explorers Collection, I knew I wanted to include an amigurumi crochet Rocket Ship plush that was large enough to cuddle with. My vision was that someone was going to make this collection for a child that LOVES outer-space.  The child will play with the Astronaut and Alien and then at night, cuddle the Rocket Ship to sleep. How cute is that!?

Gauge isn’t super important for amigurumi, but I included it just in case you want to check your gauge. Being a little off should not affect the final product too much. You can learn more about how to measure gauge for amigurumi here!

Yarn I Used

I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran for this toy; 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 50g of Vintage Pink (about one skein of yarn), 85g of Stormy Grey (< 2 skeins of yarn), a little bit of Pale Lilac, a little bit of Pansy Purple, and a little bit of Champagne White for the window reflection.

This Rocket Ship Plush is very Easy to make even though it is quite large. The plush measures to be about 11 inches (27 cm) tall.

This pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

      Hi April,

      Not particularly. I just personally like to sew the different bits on after stuffing to accommodate for the stretch the toy gets when stuffed. I find that being able to pin the piece down to sew makes the sewing a bit neater too.

      Hope this helps!
