Skull Pirate free amigurumi pattern

Sharing is caring!

Here you get this amazing Pirate Skull free amigurumi pattern that I have created for the Scary Friends collection for this upcoming Halloween! Have fun!!! If you want to go straight to the pattern, just roll down the page!

Today I am sharing the last  Halloween amigurumi created for this season. In total are seven amigurumis in this collection.

I will leave a link down below to the other members in case you want to check it out!

It took me 4 days over my schedule to finish this collection. Having too many nephews, nieces, and birthdays (what happens in August/beginning of September? Most of the people I know have birthdays during this period…!).

pin it for later

But yes, it was 2 amigurumi foxes (you can check mini fox here and bigger fox here), one amigurumi mini pig, 3 amigurumi keychains (I made one cow keychain, and the other two I haven’t write about yet), and a bookmark!

This bookmark I will write about it one day and give you guys the free pattern. It was my friend’s birthday and I got for her a book about India (if you follow me here, I have mentioned books as a gift a couple of time, I am the kind of person who gives books…plus a crochet item of course!). And so, my husband gave me an idea to crochet a bookmark. Since I am into amigurumi, I made her an elephant head amigurumi/bookmark with colorful Indian graphic motifs. It’s beautiful! But I am the creator so, not the one to say… but you will see in a week or two and then you tell me!

Anyways, this Halloween collection called Scary friends has seven friends! The Frankenstein and his mini friend, Wednesday and her sister the Gothic doll, Pirate skeleton and his little buddy (where you are now!), and of course, the one that can’t be missed, Angry pumpkin! Some of these links are free, some are paid. If you want to check it out my free patterns category, click here!

I hope you enjoy this free Amigurumi skull pattern. And, also, if you have any questions, leave in the comments below and I’ll be happy to reply to you!

I leave you here some useful links of some stitches and techniques used for this pattern:

And, some amigurumi tips that are always good to keep in mind!

TIPS:
  1. Most important to remember is to keep your stitch with a tight tension, this way, you won’t have any see-through gaps.
  2. To help me keep my stitches tight, I prefer using yarn for a thicker needle than the one I would be using for the Amigurumi.
  3. Always count your stitches after every row, so you will make sure to have the total amount of stitches.
  4. Use a piece of yarn to mark the last stitch, so you won’t miss where the beginning and end of your row is!
