Free Buddy The Elf Spaghetti Amigurumi Crochet Christmas Ornament Pattern

One of my favourite Christmas movies of all time is Elf. And one of my favourite scenes from the movie is when Buddy serves everyone breakfast spaghetti. So I figured I’d make a few ornaments to go with my Buddy the Elf inspired outfit for Bernadette.

This plate of Elf Spaghetti is great as an ornament, or as one of Bernie the Elf’s accessories. Also check out the Maple Syrup ornament!

Yarn I Used

I used WeCrochet Shine Sport Yarn for this crochet amigurumi ornament, but you can use any soft cotton yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn. You can also easily size up/down by using thicker/thinner yarn, just make sure to change the size of your hook accordingly.

Gauge

5 Round Circle = 1.35” with a 2.75mm hook.

Note: I am working with the x-stitch (yarn under single crochet). If you are working a standard sc, go down a hook size.

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!

THINGS YOU NEED


Notes & Guides

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds unless otherwise stated. Mark the first stitch of the round with a stitch marker to help keep track of where the beginning of the round is.

Skip the turning chain – Do not chain one at the beginning of each row when turning your piece. By skipping the chain, the edge looks less jagged.

Seamless Join in the Round Cut your yarn tail, fasten off, and thread your yarn tail onto a darning needle. Locate the 2nd st of the round, insert your needle under that stitch and pull through. Insert your needle into the centre of the final st of the round and out the back. Weave the tail into the back of the work.

Jogless transition to BLO/FLO – Before transitioning into a BLO/FLO round, fasten off, seamless join in the round and weave the tails in. To pick up a stitch, start with a slip knot on your hook, insert your hook into the FLO/BLO of the false stitch from when you seamless joined in the round. Work the next stitch like you normally would into the FLO/BLO. Doing so reduces the “step” you get when transitioning into a BLO/FLO round and will make the back of your work look neater.

Using Glue to Attach Pieces Together – I chose to use glue to attach the pieces together for both of these ornaments because they are so small. With smaller amigurumi, sewing the parts together will bulk up the piece significantly.

Spaghetti Noodles

with Dandelion yarn

Cut a strand of yarn that is roughly 12 inches long. Wrap the yarn loosely around a marker or pen and use fabric stiffener of your choice to stiffen the yarn strand to create the noodle waves. Allow to dry fully before removing it from the pen to retain as much of the curl as possible.

Pop-Tarts Crust (Make 2)

with Willow yarn

Glue or sew the icing onto the centre of the crust.

1          Ch 5, starting in the 2nd ch from hook, 4sc, turn [4]
2-3       4sc, turn [4]

Fasten off and weave the tails in.

Pop-Tarts Icing (Make 2)

with Coffee yarn

1          Ch 4, starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, 3sc, turn [3]
2          3sc [3]

Fasten off. If you are using glue to secure the icing to the crust, weave the tails in. If you plan to sew the icing to the crust, leave a tail.



Spaghetti Base

with Dandelion yarn

1          6sc in magic circle [6]
2          6inc [12]
3          (sc, inc) x 6 [18]
4          sc, inc, (2sc, inc) x 5, sc [24]
5          (3sc, inc) x 6 [30]

Fasten off, seamless join in the round, and weave the tails in.

Embroidery and details for the spaghetti

  • With Coffee yarn or brown embroidery floss, embroider a zig zag across the top of the base to represent chocolate syrup.
  • With your yellow thread, sew on a few pink, pastel green, and white seed beads to represent the mini marshmallows.
    Sew on a few bright red and green seed beads to represent the M&M’s. Do your best to avoid sewing the beads close to the outer edge of the spaghetti base. You will still need to be able to work through the stitches on this piece.
  • Alternatively, you can use yarn in the aforementioned colours and sew a few short lines or embroider French knots all over the spaghetti base.
  • Thread one end of the noodle into one side of the spaghetti base and tie a double knot on the wrong side of the base to ensure that the end doesn’t slip through. Insert the other end of the noodle across from where the first end is and tie a double knot on the wrong side of the base to secure the other end.
  • Optional: To secure the noodles and make them more manageable, take sewing thread in a colour similar to the noodles and sew a few stitches to secure sections of the noodles to the Spaghetti Base.


Plate

with White yarn

1          6sc in magic circle [6]
2          6inc [12]
3          (sc, inc) x 6 [18]
4          sc, inc, (2sc, inc) x 5, sc [24]
5          BLO, (3sc, inc) x 6 [30] *See Jogless BLO in Notes & Guides.

Line the wrong sides of the spaghetti base and the plate together (wrong sides facing each other) and crochet through both pieces for the next round. Make sure to stuff the middle lightly before completely crocheting the opening close.

7          (5sc, inc) x 6 [42]

Fasten off, seamless join in the round, and weave the tails in.

Assembly

  • Bundle up the noodle so that it sits neatly on top of the plate.
  • Glue the Pop-tarts onto the plate.
  • To make this into an ornament, thread a piece of yarn through the plate and tie a knot to create a loop.

    Love this pattern. I have been giving Christmas ornaments to my grandkids for over 20 years. Last year was the first time I crocheted some and they were very well received. Since I have 17 grandchildren it is not easy to find a variety to try and get an ornament that “fits” them. Now I just have to decide who gets spaghetti and who gets maple syrup. Thank you.
