Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi – Crochet Small Sun “Sunshine”

For the Amigurumi Sun we first crochet two parts for the center. Then crochet one border around the center, while crocheting both pieces together. If you want you can make a face for the Amigurumi sun and of course the crocheted sun will be filled and stuffed.

Crochet Sun Center (2x)

Crochet the center for the sun two times from inside to outside in spiral rounds with double crochet stitches (UK!).

Crochet Sun Border

Now let’s crochet a border around the sun, which has the shape of sun rays. We crochet both parts together and of course the sun is still filled.

You start anywhere and always stitch into both loops of the front and back sides.

  • yellow:
  • 1 slip stitch + 1 lifting- chain stitch
  • repeat:
    • in jede 1st Masche:
      • 1 half treble crochet stitch (UK!)

    • in jede 3rd Masche:

  • cut the thread, pull off the loop, secure and weave in the thread end

You simply repeat the sun rays until the end of the round and continue to stitch into both loops of the front and back sides.

Shortly before the end of the round, the sun is completely filled and stuffed.

Then you just crochet until the border is completely closed.

Finish Amigurumi Sun

This way is your crocheted Amigurumi sun actually already finished. If you want you can still embroider a mouth with black darning yarn and paint a few cheeks with pink acrylic paint.

I wish you a sunny day!
