Free Pattern Friday – Moose Man Milo

Hello everybody! And welcome to another Free Pattern Friday! This week I am happy to bring you my little monster, Moose Man Milo!

IMG_1910

I made little Milo last year, when I got my hands on some Katia Amigurumi 4 ply mini yarns. I wanted to make something cute and colourful, and Milo was the result 🙂

As I mentioned – I used Katia 4 ply mini cottons to make this piece. Using this weight yarn my Moose Man turned out to be about 5 inches tall, when using a 2.5mm (B) hook. You could even make your own with a heavier weight yarn and bigger hook size, like 8 Ply or Worsted Weight, and create a massive Milo cuddle monster or cushion!

As always with my patterns, please feel free to make as many ami’s as you like, and I don’t even mind if you sell them on afterwards, as long as you don’t sell the pattern itself. A small credit or link back to this site would be appreciated, thank you <3

So before I ramble on any further, here he is! Moose Man Milo! Enjoy <3

Yarn Suggestions

  • I used Katia Amigurumi Mini Cottons for this ami, I used 10 different colours and less than 5g of each colour, so you can easily make him with scraps. Experiment with different yarn weights and hook sizes to make a different variation of Moose Man!
