Crochet pattern pdf file ( ad free )

For more convenience and to support my blog you can choose to purchase the printable PDF file of the pattern ( ad free and more detailed pictures ) on my Etsy shop, by clicking here.

So, if you choose that option, huge, huge THANK YOU for your support, I can keep making my crochet patterns thanks to you 🙂

But, you can also decide to follow the pattern directly on my blog, so let’s get started !

Some notes before starting

  • Read the pattern completely before you start.
  • Full YouTube tutorial for the minions : here
  • If you want to make Kevin, please follow the same crochet pattern as Bob the minion, the only
    differences are : the color of his eyes ( 2 brown eyes ) and instead of making
    27 rounds for body, make 35 rounds at R15 ( the body page ).
  • For a result similar to the original minion, it is important to read the crochet pattern at each step so as not to skip instructions given for a specific row. The model requires careful counting of rows and stitches.
  • Also, don’t hesitate to contact me here if you notice any mistake in the tutorial, thank you
  • Check the size of the hook indicated before each element.
  • The numbers placed in parentheses correspond to the number of stitches to have when finishing the row. This allows you to know if it was done correctly. If you have more than the number indicated, it means that you have added stitches. Conversely, if you lack it, you have forgotten it.
  • The letters (a,b,c…) at the end of sentences correspond to the pictures.
  • Avoid waste by mixing your cut threads with the stuffing.
  • When it is indicated “classic finish “, it means: Cut the thread and pass it through the loop to make a knot.
  • When it is indicated ‘’ invisible finish‘’, it means : Cut the thread, pass it through the loop to make a knot and then, create a ‘’ fake stitch ‘’ to make it invisible. ( please refer to this video : here )

List of supplies

The use of different supplies from that indicated may vary the final rendering. You don’t have to use the same brand of yarn but the gauge has to be the same for a similar result.

The minion crochet pattern contain affiliate links. It means that I receive a small commission if you purchase the product that is linked ( no additional cost to you ).

  • Hooks : 6mm (J10), 7mm , 8mm (L11) and 9mm (N11) : crochet kit here
  • Yarns ( click on the color to be linked to Amazon. No link means that I bought at the yarn Joann or Michaels ). Also, as long as the yarn gauge is respected, you can pick the yarn ball of the brand you prefer ( the result will be similar in term of proportions ).
ColorNumber of skeinsBrand and NameWeight & length of 1 ballGaugeUse in the pattern
Yellow (buttercup or sunshine sparkle)2Bernat classic baby blanket or sparkle10.5 oz / 220 yds6Full minion body
Grey (misty gray)1*Bernat baby velvet10.5 oz / 492 yds4Goggles

Black (1810)1**Estako velvet3.5 oz / 132 yds5Goggles strap , feet and gloves
Blue ( baby teal )1**Bernat baby blanket10.5 oz / 220 yds6Overalls

*To make the thread thicker for the pattern, I took the 2 ends of the ball and crocheted the 2 threads at the same time. I used less than one ball.
** You will need less than one ball.

  • 2 black buttons ( 1 inch diameter )
  • 1 brown iris safety eye, 30 mm will be the best. But because it’s quite difficult to find, I used a 23 mm eye ( : here ) and added a round crocheted with light brown chenille yarn behind it. You will only need a little bit so if you don’t have brown chenille yarn already at home, you can use the black ESTAKO yarn. I don’t want you to buy a full ball of yarn, that would be a waste 🙂
  • Polyester fiber fill type Poly-fill ( 26 ounces ) : here
  • Black and white cotton thread, for the smile and to sew the elements together : here
  • Darning needles. They are from the crochet kit listed at the top of the page and a sewing needle to sew the buttons.
  • Round counter : here
  • Stitch markers.
  • 2 cardboards rounds of 2.4 inches diameter ( 6 cm ) and craft glue ( for example Elmer’s craft bond )

R51 : (3 sc, 1 dec) x6 (24)

Insert a stitch marker on the last stitch to block the thread ( do not cut it ) because we are going to start assembling the elements together. Stuff the body to the top.

Assembly

Assemble and sew the elements as shown in pictures.

For the arms, make sure that both thumbs are up. Then sew on R23’s double crochets, it will look like the end of the arm blends into the body.

For the goggles, make sure to only sew the white part to the body. Not sewing the grey part creates relief.

Goggles strap

Hook 8mm

Black chenille yarn
Ro0 : 65 ch + 1 turning ch

The number of ch depends on the stuffing of your minion. Check that the strap is long enough to go around the head starting from each side of the goggles. (a)

If it’s too short, add some chain stitch.
Conversely, if it’s too long remove some.

a

Turn your work, turning ch becomes first stitch (1) of the row, SKIP ch 65 and start crocheting in ch 64 of Ro0
Ro1 : 64 sc (65) + 1 turning ch
Turn your work, turning ch becomes first stitch (1) of the row, SKIP sc 64 and start crocheting in sc 63 of Ro1
Ro2 : 64 sc (65) + 1 turning ch
Turn your work, turning ch becomes first stitch (1) of the row, SKIP sc 64 and start crocheting in sc 63 of Ro2
Ro3 : 64 sc (65)
Classic finish

Then, sew the strap to the body with black cotton thread.

Smile

To embroider the smile, first create the entire line with black cotton thread. Then, pull that line down a row to create an arc. To make it stay in place. sew a very small stitch at the bottom of the smile ( has to be almost invisible ).

Body

Hook 9mm

Yellow yarn
R51 : (2 sc, 1 dec) x6 (18)
R52 : (1 sc, 1 dec) x6 (12)
R53 : 6 dec (6)

Leave 6 in. of thread then cut it.
Pass the thread through the loop to tie a knot.
With the thread and a darning needle, pass through the previous 6 stitches to close the circle.
Hide the thread in the head with the needle and then cut what is left.

Stuart’s hair

Tie black cotton threads to the top of his head to create a few strands.
