Free Tatung Rice Cooker Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Growing up in Taiwan, every single person I knew owned one of these ICONIC rice cookers. The Tatung Rice Cookers come in a variety of colours, but my family has always owned a green one. When my family immigrated to Canada, we brought one over. And when that one broke, my parents brought one back when they travelled to Taiwan one Summer. Seriously, that’s how much we love this rice cooker.

Gauge

5 Round Circle = 1.5” with a 2.75mm 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 final product too much. You can learn more about how to measure gauge for amigurumi here!

Yarn I Used

I used WeCrochet Shine Sport Yarn for this toy; however, you can use any yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn. For this pattern, I used roughly 7g of Grapefruit/Peapod, 6g of Platinum, and a little bit of Black. (1 skein of yarn is about 50g)

It’s currently out of stock on their site, but it’s honestly one of my favourite yarns to work with.

  • With Black yarn, embroider 3 little dots underneath the rice cooker, making sure that two of the dots are lined up equally when you are looking at the rice cooker front the front. Go over each dot twice so that the bump protrudes out a little more.

  • Optional: To make this into a keychain, attach a keychain ring to the top of the Lid Handle with a jump ring. And this part isn’t necessary at all, but if you want to make sure your jump ring doesn’t pop open, you can dab a little bit of E6000 in the gap of the jump ring.
