Difficulty Level ★ ★

Hi peeps!

This is a pattern for Rilakkuma head only. Will be working on the body pattern soon if people are asking for it ;)

💡 Click me to show trivia about Rilakkuma 💡

Rilakkuma is a cute relaxed bear character from Japan, created by Aki Kondo and produced by San-X. in 2003.

This character are almost everywhere and recently you can find Rilakkuma in their own Netflix series, "Rilakkuma and Kaoru". The movie is relaxing and nice, just like Rilakkuma.

I have planned to make a video tutorial for this pattern but due to limited storage space, I can only manage to record the head part and the joining parts 😢

The final result is around hand palm size (4x6 cm). The gauge used is 13 single crochet in row with length of 5 cm. Total yardage is around 3,6 meters.

materials-rilakkuma-head

I'm using crochet hook size 2,5 mm.

The materials we need are

  • 2 safety eyes size 8 mm (Or you can use yarn / felt fabric)
  • Light polyester wool for stuffing the doll
  • Light or medium worsted yarn with color of yellow, brown, black and white

Techniques that you need to know

  • Magic ring
  • Single crochet (Sc)
  • Increase (Inc)
  • Invisible Decrease / Decrease (Dec)
  • Slip stitch (Sl st)

Notes

It's recommended to use invisible decrease techniques to reduce the gap between stitch, it is like decrease but using only front loop of a stitch.

I’m using invisible decrease (decreasing using the front loop only), it is prettier because the gap is smaller rather than decreasing normally.

When the indication is grouped like this (Sc, Inc) * 6, it means to do a Single Crochet, then Increase in that order for 6 times.

Joining Parts

I would recommend to start by placing the mouth part first with pin around Round 5 - 10. Then place the eye next to it.
