Sushi Go Mini Crochet Amigirumi FREE Pattern

Updated: May 6

Hope everyone is doing well. This is day 14 of self-isolation for me here in Canada as Covid-19 is still going strong. With all this going on, it's definitely making my maternity leave quite uneventful. As a result, I find myself getting entertained on Board game Arena! An online board game website which I absolutely love. It's free and if you want more access to premium games, like Sushi Go (which they just published); it's only $35 a year! If you're ever on the site -- please add me @missveeveeon and we can play a game together. If you're the type who enjoy hands on - then you can purchase the game on Amazon for less than $20.

Sushi Go is a quick and easy game (approximately 7 mins on Boardgame Arena). It's a pick and pass card game where your goal is to make combinations to score the most points! I've been playing this game for awhile now and this is what inspired me to today's FREE pattern (and not to mention; I'm definitely craving for sushi these days!) Please enjoy and I look forward to hearing your comments and questions below.

Ch = Chain

Inc = Increase

Dec = Decrease

Sc = Single Crochet

Dc = Double Crochet

Slst = Slip stitch

St = Stitch

F/O = Fasten off

[repeat everything within brackets]


Rice Ball Base (this is used for the Salmon and the Squid Sushi -- Sake Nigiri and Ika Nigiri)

Start with a magic ring and sc 5 into the ring. (5)

Round 1: Inc all around (10)

Round 2: Sc all around (10)

Rounds 3-6: Repeat Round 2

  • Start stuffing with Polyfil (do not overstuff); I used the end of my crochet needle to help with the stuffing

Round 7: Dec all around (5) Note: I like to use the invisible decrease to make the holes less visible

F/O and sew in tail

Salmon Sushi (Sake Nigiri)

Ch 12+1 (13) and dc into 2nd st from hook and across the remaining sts. Slst into first ch, F/O and leave a long tail for sewing.

Note: depending on your tension; you may want to increase or decrease some chains; just make sure it can cover the rice ball that you had made

Sew the salmon piece on top of the rice. I sewed it along the edges and weaved in the tail. If you really want to make it a Sushi Go Amigurumi - you can try to add the faces with a black sharpie - but because the amigirumi is so small, it was quite difficult so I just scrapped it.

I've turned these amigurumi into earrings which are available for purchase on my Etsy store! Please check it out.

Squid Sushi (Ika Nigiri)

Uses the same rice ball base as the Salmon Nigiri.

Row 1: Ch 10+1 (11). Sc into the 2nd st from hook and across the remaining sts.

Row 2: Turn, ch1, sc all across stitches (11)

Row 3: Repeat Row 2. F/O and leave tail for sewing.

Using a green sharpie marker, draw in the garnish before sewing it onto the rice ball. Once again, remember to sew along the edges.
