Big Cute Crochet Cow Free PDF Amigurumi Pattern

Big Cute Crochet Cow Free PDF Amigurumi Pattern (2)

When an amigurumi catches your attention, you want to make it. Everyone feels this, but if the amigurumi toy has dimensions as large as in the picture, you need to be a little patient. The amigurumi toy actually has a plain and simple design, but due to its very large structure, you have to crochet it symmetrically. That’s why you have to be extremely patient when making large amigurumi toys. The crochet cow pattern I shared today is one of these great toys.

Abb
MR – magic ring
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
inc / sc2in1 – 2 single crochet in one stitch (increase)
st / sts – stitch / stitches
dec / sc2tog – single crochet 2 stitches together (decrease)
(sc2in1, sc2) around – repeat what’s in the brackets until end of the row
(sc10, dec) – 2x – repeat what’s in the brackets 2 times
*decrease only through front loops – it looks much better

Materials used:
Crochet hook size: 3,5mm.
Yarn used:
Himalaya Everyday colors black and white (100g/250m)
Himalaya Everyday Bebe Lux crème (color number 70437, 100g/250m)
If you use other kind of yarn and hook size you’ll just get different size of the
toy. My finished work is around 15-16cm tall.
Black thread for nose, eyelashes, eyebrows (if you want to make them).
Safety eyes or buttons.
Some toy or pillow stuffing.
*work in continuous rounds.

ch5, start the row with the second ch from the hook.
Row 1: inc, sc2, inc, (now on the other side of the chain) inc, sc2, inc (12)
Row 2: (sc2in1) – x2, sc2, (sc2in1) – x4, sc2, (sc2in1) – x2 (20)

Row 5 – 9: sc36 (5 rows)

With black thread sew the nose „dots”

Legs (4x): (stuff as you go)
Start with black yarn:
Row 1: sc8 in MR
Row 2: (sc2in1) around (16)
Row 3: (sc1, inc) around (24)
Row 4: (sc3, inc) around (30)
Row 5: this row back loops only – sc30
Row 6: sc30

Row 8: sc28
Change color to white:
Row 9: sc6, dec, sc12, dec, sc6 (26)
Row 10: sc26
You can tie together black and white yarn ends, make a knot and just leave it inside the leg.
Row 11: (sc11, dec) – x2 (24)
Row 12: sc24
Row 13: sc5, dec, sc10, dec, sc5 (22)
Row 14: sc22
Row 15: (sc9, dec) – x2 (20)
Row 16: sc20
Row 17: sc4, dec, sc8, dec, sc4 (18)
Row 18: sc18
Row 19: (sc7, dec) – x2 (16)
Row 20 – 23: sc16 (4 rows)
Sl st, fasten off, leave a tail.
When I stuff legs I like to leave some unstuffed part so they fall more loosely from the body.

Tail: (do not stuff)
Start with black yarn:
Row 1: sc6 in MR
Row 2: (sc1, inc) – x3 (9)
Row 3 and 4: sc9
Row 5: this row back loops only: sc9
Change yarn to white:
Row 6: this row back loops only: sc9
Row 7 and every next row: sc9 – continue until you get the length you like, for me it was around 13cm.
Around row 8 or 9: tie together black and white yarn ends, make a knot and just leave it inside the tail.
Finish with sl st and leave a tail to sew to the body.
In the front loops of rows 5 and 6 you need to attach pieces of black yarn to make a “brushy” end. Make some 8 – 10cm pieces and attach them like on the picture below.


*I crocheted an extra part of tail only in white color so you can see better how I attached the pieces of yarn. After you finish, you can cut the ends to the length you like but I didn’t do anything because for me it looks just fine. You can also use a smaller size of a hook to make it easier to pull through.

Spots:
I made 7 of those, but you can crochet them your way 
Below I wrote down what I made and attached to this baby cow. Of course all are crocheted in black yarn.
Every time you finish the spot with a sl st and leave a long tail to sew. The end from the beginning of the spot you just weave in and cut.

Spot 1:
Row 1: sc6 in MR
Row 2: (sc2in1) around (12)
Row 3: (sc1, inc) around (18)
Row 4: (sc2, inc) around (24)

Spot 2:
ch4, start the first row from the second ch from the hook
Row 1: sc2in1, sc1, sc2in1, on the other side of the chain: sc2in1, sc1, sc2in1 (10)
Row 2: (sc2in1) – x2, sc1, (sc2in1) – x4, sc1, (sc2in1) – x2 (18)
Row 3: (inc, sc1) – x2, sc1, (inc, sc1) – x4, sc1, (sc2in1) – x2 (26)
Row 4: (sc2, inc) – x2

Spots 3 i 4:
ch7, start from the second ch from the hook.
Row 1: sc2in1, sc4, sc2in1, on the other side of the hook: sc2in1, sc4, sc2in1 (16)
Row 2: (sc2in1) – x2, , sc4, (sc2in1) – x4, sc4, (sc2in1) – x2 (24)

Spot 5:
ch13, start from the second ch from the hook.
Row 1: sc2in1, sc10, sc2in1, on the other side of the hook: sc2in1, sc10, sc2in1
Row 2: (sc2in1) – x2, sc2, dc2, sc6, (sc2in1) – x4, sc2, dc4, sc4, (sc2in1) – x2
Row 3: (sc1, inc) – x2, sc1, dc4, hdc1, sc5, (sc1, inc) – x4, dc6, hdc1, sc3, sc2in1, sc1, sc2in1
Row 4: dc2in1, dc2, dc2in1, sc1, sc1
*with dc and hdc I was trying to get some irregular edges.
Spots 6 and 7: these are the most difficult ones ch11, start from the second ch from the hook.
Row 1: sc2in1, sc4, sc3in1, sc3, sc2in1, on the other side of the hook: sc2in1, sc2, sc3tog, sc3, sc2in1
Row 2: (sc2in1) – x2, sc4, (sc2in1, sc2) – x2, (sc2in1) – x4, sc2, sc3tog, sc1, (sc2in1) – x2
Row 3: (sc1, sc2in1) – x2, hdc1, dc4, hdc1, (sc1, sc2in1) – x2, sc1, hdc1, dc1, dc2in1, hdc1, sc2in1, sc1, sc2in1, sc2, sc2tog, sc1, hdc1, (dc2tog, dc1) – x2
Row 4: dc1, hdc1, sc2in1, sc1, hdc1, dc1, dc2tog, hdc1, sc2, dc2tog, dc3, sc2in1, sc6, (sc2, sc2in1) – x3, sc1, sc3tog, sc2, dc2, dc2in1, sc1

Now you need to sew everything together. Attach ears more / less at the eyes line. Stuff the nose when there is only small hole left when you sew. Attach spots wherever you like – it’s a cow so they can be somewhere different each time  Weave in all the ends and cut the remaining tails of yarn.
