Introducing the Everyday Heroes Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Collection!

Hey guys! I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe in this crazy, crazy time. Covid-19 has undoubtedly changed all of our lives. And while most of us are staying home and staying safe, there are a lot of very essential frontline workers who do not get the luxury to do so. Inspired by these everyday heroes, I decided to create this pattern collection! 

Although this amigurumi collection only covers four professions, there are many more that deserve our thanks- truck drivers, scientists, caregivers, doctors, hospital cleaners, pharmacy workers, bus drivers, paramedics, the list goes on. THANK YOU for your hard work!

Everyday Heroes Collection Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Notes

The difficulty level for these patterns range from Easy to Intermediate

The patterns are in English and written in US crochet terminology.

Yarn I Used

I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran for all four toys in this collection; however, you can use any cotton yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn. Each skein of yarn is roughly 50g. 

For the Nurse Cat, I used roughly 30g of Melon Sorbet (> half a skein of yarn), 15g of Marine Blue (< half a skein of yarn), a little bit of: Slate Grey, Misty Grey, Blood Orange and Champagne White.

For the Grocer Bunny, I used roughly 30g of Ballet Pink (> half a skein of yarn), 5g of Vintage Pink, 5g of Grass Green, and a little bit Blood Orange.

For the Firefighter Panda, I used roughly 25g of Pale Lilac (~ half a skein of yarn), 10g of Marine Blue (< half a skein of yarn), 25g of Soft Fudge (~ half a skein), 15g of Pillar Red a (< half a skein), and a little bit of: Buttercup Yellow, Granite Grey, Misty Grey.

For the Postal Worker Puppy, I used roughly 30g of Banana Cream (> half a skein of yarn), 5g of Mustard Yellow (< half a skein of yarn), 10g of Duck Egg Blue (< half a skein), 10g of Sailor Blue a (< half a skein), 5g of Coffee Bean, and a little bit of Champagne White.

Gauge

5 Round Circle = 2” with a 3.5mm hook

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 end product too much. You can learn more about how to measure gauge for amigurumi here!
