An original amigurumi alien crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

PlanetJune Aliens give a nod to the classic Roswell grey aliens, but with a cute PlanetJune twist!

Yarn: worsted weight yarn (the pictured samples uses Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarns)

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Additional info:

  • Aliens has a few rounds of detailed colourwork to make the beautifully-shaped eyes, but after that it’s fast and easy all the way. The body and limbs work up extremely quickly, and this pattern has almost no sewing, so, once you get past the eyes, you can finish an alien in no time!
  • Aliens includes full instructions for 2 options: you’ll need 2 pipe cleaners to make the fun poseable version with wired limbs (my green alien), or you can make a more child-friendly version (my blue alien) with either thread-jointed arms that can swing at the shoulder or more firmly attached arms.

Size: approx 7” (18cm) tall. (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)
