Squid Game Pink Soldiers Free Crochet Pattern


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.


*This crochet pattern is completely free to use to create your own pink soldiers from Squid Game but please, do NOT copy and share any parts of the pattern anywhere else. I'd love for you to share this pattern by simply sharing this page's URL with others. Thank you so much for visiting and let me know how you liked this pattern in the comment section of this page! :)

Size

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


Abbreviations that are used:

mr = magic ring

ch = chain

st = stitch

sc = single crochet

inc = increase

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

slst = slip stitch

FLO = front loop only

BLO = back loop only

dc = double crochet

hdc = half double crochet


Materials

- 1,5mm. Crochet hook

- Embroidery needle for details and embroidery

- Scheepjes Sweet Treat or Bonbon yarn. Scarlet red, white and black.

- Polyfill stuffing

- Sharp scissors

- Pins to pin down parts

Embroider triangle, square or circle onto upper part of the face with white yarn.

Mark with pins first.


Triangle – place pin in row 15, place right pin 3 st apart in row 9, place left pin on the left 3 st apart in row 9.


Square – Place left pin in row 13, place a pin with the right pin 5 stitches apart. Go down 6 rows or 7 for a larger square and repeat. You now have a square.


Circle – Cut out a circle from paper and pin down onto face. Glue white thread around the circle onto face and remove paper circle.

Make sure everything is aligned and symmetrical!

Leave long tail for sewing onto head or use glue and tuck in ends.


Essembly

  1. Use pins to keep embroidery symmetrical.

  2. Embroider a black stripe on belly.

  3. Use pins before adding details onto face.


Optional

Cut 3 pieces of wire for legs, arms and head. I use 2mm thick aluminium wire. It’s very easy to bend but sturdy. Use pliers to create closed loops for feet and head.
