Scrap/No-Sew Eyeball Amigurumi – Free Crochet Pattern
Hello! This free scrap eyeball amigurumi pattern is probably my favorite Halloween themed pattern I’ve ever made! I love how comical it is, and that the “eye string” part can attach to a keychain. It would make a great gag gift to any fellas in your life 🙂

• Yarn 4/Medium Weight in…
Black, Iris color, White, Red
•4mm Crochet Hook
• Before we get started…
Making these crochet eyes are super quick, fun, and easy! There’s no sewing required, so you can make these a lot faster compared to most amigurumis. The eyes turn out mini if you use the recommended yarn, however, they also turn out great (and bigger) in blanket yarn 🙂
• Let’s Get Started!
We will start by creating the center of the eye, working our way out to the iris, then the whites of the eyes. After we have the eyeball made, we can make a chain to form the eye’s “string” part. Attaching a keychain to this “string” part is really funny – let’s get started!
Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: Change to iris color (blue, green, brown, etc.) *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: Change to White *Inc, Sc in the next st* all around (18)
Round 4-6: *Sc* all around (18)
Round 7: *Dec, Sc in the next st* all around (12)
Stuff firmly now.
Round 8: *Dec* all around (6)
Finish off, leaving a tail for sewing. Sew the remaining stitches closed.
Attach your crochet hook into the back center of the crochet eye (Pic 1). Yarn over with red yarn and pull it through (Pic 2-3). Ch 9 (Pic 4). Finish off. Tie knot close to the last ch made to secure the chains. If you want to add a keychain, add it to the end of the chains, then tie the knot to secure the keychain (Pic 5). Cut excess yarn. You can now sew on veins with red yarn if wanted.
Done! If you made this eyeball, I would LOVE to see! You can show me by posting a picture in the comments underneath this post.
