Aim and shoot anyone who loses the game! Not with this pattern but still, a very nerve wrecking way to play a game, right?
You may have seen the Korean Squid Game show on Netflix by now and if you are like me, you can't wait for a season 2. In the meantime we'll have to do with cute little red / pink Squid Game soldiers that you can crochet at home!
It has taken me a while to design this amigurumi pattern and at first I wanted to keep it very simple and smaller than what I have now but I've treated it like any other pattern and inserted aluminium wire to make the bodied sturdier and poseable. You can totally leave the wire out or use a different wire that's more to your liking. Aluminium is very easy to use and available in hobby stores or online.
This crochet pattern was created using scarlet red Sweet Treat or Bonbon by Scheepjes. Scarlet red is the perfect colour between hot red and pink and matches the colour from the show. Sweet Treat and Bonbon both are the same yarn but called differently because of the skein size. You can use different yarn but if you do, make sure you keep using the same brand or size of yarn for the whole project to keep it all balanced.

Use crochet hook 1,5mm. The doll will be about 8cm(3.2”) depending on how tight/loose you crochet. The abbreviations I used are common US terms. If a line says "*sc3,
inc*, sc5" then it means you'll have to repeat the action inside the * until end of round and continue the action after the comma. When a line says ‘5sc’, you crochet 5 single crochet in 1 stitch

sc = single crochet
inc = increase
dec = single crochet 2 together OR skip stitch (you choose)
