Free Pattern Friday: Soot Sprite Amigurumi


A 3″ tall soot sprite from the movie Spirited Away.

A quick little thing I knocked out in about an hour or so. Pretty much just an excuse to use up some old black yarn. Happy Friday!

  1. Thank you for the cute pattern. I have a quick question. Under the directions for the eye patches step #3, sc, 2inc, sc (6), does it mean 2 inc in the same sc or an inc in one and another inc in another? I also am not sure how to get (6) from that step. Thank you!


    1. Hello!
      For the third round of the eye patches, you will single crochet, increase in the next stitch, increase in the next stitch, and then single crochet in the next stitch. And thanks for pointing out the (6), it should be (14) because you start off with 12 stitches and increase twice. I’ve gone ahead and fixed that in the pattern. I hope this helps!
