Peach Amigurumi Pattern

Lately, my thoughts have turned to spring – even though where I am is nowhere close to spring temperatures. Even though I know peaches aren’t necessarily a spring fruit, they always remind me of sunny days. Plus, peaches are a cute pink and spring green in color!

I turned my peaches into purse charms.

With my shop and blog being called “Pixeled Peach,” I thought it was only fair to share a peach amigurumi pattern. Lately, I’ve been trying out creating video tutorials for things on my YouTube channel. I really enjoy creating the videos. It’s a nice break from typing out patterns, and I feel like it really allows me to show precisely what I mean in a pattern!

I would be so humbled if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel! I’m going to try to post a few video tutorials there each month, and eventually may be able to take suggestions for what folks would like to make or see.

Video Tutorial

In addition to the video, I wanted to also include a rudimentary written out pattern – that way, you can reference the video for pointers while you make your very own peach!

I also think that posting the pattern both visually and with a video is great for folks who are learning how to read a pattern. It makes crocheting a bit more accessible for all different learning types (which I’m all for!).

Just peachy!

Peach Pattern

Ingredients

Abbreviations

Some of these may not be used in the pattern – these are the stitches that I use most frequently! If you see an abbreviation that you are unfamiliar with, please refer back to this chart.

Main Body

Start with pink yarn!

R1: ML 6sc

R2: inc in each st (12)

R3: *sc, inc* around (18)

R4: *2sc, inc* around (24)

R5-R8: sc around (4 rows total)

R9: *2sc, dec* around (18)

R10: *sc, dec* around (12)

R11: *2sc, dec* around (9)

Stuff peach here!

R12: *sc, dec* around (6)

R13: dec, sc, dec (4)

Cut long tail for sewing. Sew through each of the 4 remaining st and pull to cinch closed. Tie knot and send tail to top of work. Sew three straight stitches from front to back over the top of the work to create the cinched top (video is really helpful here – start at 10:30!). Weave in any remaining tail.

Leaves

Use green yarn – (leaf portion of the video starts at 15:00)

Ch 4

R1: 2sc, slp st

R2: without turning work, ch 4. Then 2sc, slp st

Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing. Attach leaves to ML of peach body, then run one long straight stitch between the two leaves to help shape them (video marker at 16:50 to attach leaves to body).

Finished!

Let me know what you think of this new format, or if you have any suggestions – I’d love some feedback or pointers on things that you would like to see or see differently!
