In this tutorial, we’ll be crocheting a Vampire amigurumi pod puppet. This pattern is made all in one piece using color changes, but you will have to sew on the collar and cape. To make this a bit easier, I’m also including this new amigurumi color chart that I created to help better understand and explain color changes for your amigurumi!

Color Chart Key
Border = Stitch Type
Look at the border of the square to signify the stitch used
sc = Single Crochet
dec = Decrease
mbo = Mini Bobble Stitch
bo = Bobble Stitch
Brackets = Where to work the stitch
Boxes connected by brackets signify where that stitch is worked into (ie. worked into the same st)
inc = Increase (worked into the same stitch)
BLO = Worked into the back loop only (furthest loop)
FLO = Worked into the front loop only (closest loop)
Look at the colors in the square to determine the color of the stitch.
Solid bordered squares with two colors require a half color change. Make the first pull through, completing the previous stitch, with the first color (Red), and next with the second color (Green).
The number above of the box is the stitch number in that round (ie. 10 = stitch #10).
