I designed this pineapple amigurumi pattern to help raise funds for the charity Support Education Togo (SET), that means when you purchase this guy’s pattern you will be helping the children of Togo Africa receive a better education! All profit (your $5 minus the miniscule PayPal and ravelry fees) will be donated to SET, a charity I know and trust because it was founded by my dad.

Bill is small (6 inches/15 cm tall with worsted weight yarn), so he is fun and fast to make (he can fit in your hand!). To make his textured body, a different kind of bobble stitch is used, but don’t worry, it is thoroughly explained in the pattern how to make the stitch (with photos!).
The pattern includes detailed instructions and step-by-step photos. Plus, you can contact me along the way to ask any questions.
It is an intermediate level pattern that involves starting with a magic ring, single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, slip stitch, bobble stitch (explained in pattern), increasing, decreasing, colour changes and attaching pieces.
Materials you will need:
- E US (3.5 mm) hook
- worsted weight yarn [approximately: brown 4.4 yds (4 m), green 31 yds (28 m), yellow 44 yds (40 m)]
- yarn/tapestry needle
- removable stitch markers
- two 15 mm plastic safety eyes
- polyester fiberfill stuffing
Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
