  • Step 1

    The Essentials:

    Hook: 2mm.

    Wool: DK in red, white, grey and black.

    Above colours makes Knight as shown. Red can be substituted for green, orange, blue, pink or pale grey to make the game’s full range of Knights.

    Also needed: Black embroidery thread.

    Finished Size: 3” tall.

    Terms:

    CH = Chain

    SC = Single Crochet

    SL ST = Slip Stitch

    INC = Increase

    DEC = Decrease

    I start my amigurumi using CH2 for simplicity, but if you prefer you can use a magic ring.

    NB: Some of this pattern is crocheted in joined rounds. Unlike usual, do not chain one at the beginning to raise the stitch unless directed to by the pattern.
