Amigurumi Mountain Peaks Crochet Pattern

by | All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns, Kids & Toys

I don’t remember the inspiration for the mountain range, but I guess I associate the craggy peaks with winter and thought it’d fit in with a winter advent. I know I also wanted to try merging two separate pieces together and see how that works out. Here’s my amigurumi mountain peaks, or rather, one big peak and his buddy!

These two peaks are worked in continuous rounds because I thought it get too complicated to find the end of each round when you’re trying to join two peaks together. This creates a bit of a jog at the bottom when you work in the back loop for a round. The jog shows on one side only though, so you can always put the face on the side where it doesn’t show.

Let’s walk through the construction of this amigurumi!

First, you’ll want to make the small peak, so you can cut your yarn and move on to the large peak. Both peaks change colors in the middle of the round, and you can use this color changing tutorial to help you out.

Once you’ve completed about half the large peak, it’s time to connect the two. You really just want to create one large round of stitches, and it takes about 2 rounds to connect it securely enough to really see the combined round. At this point, you’re almost to the end already! Because the shape of the rounds are not your usual circles anymore, the decreases get a bit wonky. Just remember to follow the stitch instructions and it should work out fine. The rounds are continuous so even if you might be a stitch off, the final shape won’t be affected too much because there’s no seam to have to line up.

The smaller peak does tend to stick way out to the side, so you have the option of using one of your yarn ends (either the one from the small peak, or bring up the last yarn end) to sew the tips of the peaks together. Once you pull those stitches tight, the peaks should stand almost straight next to each other instead of looking like a literal sore thumb to one side!

    I am on round 4 of the larger peak, and the stitch count goes from 9 to 12 with no increases – should there be increases on this round?
