Yarn YarnArt Jeans
17 (dark jeans)- 1 skein
49 (light gray)- 1 skein
88 (pale yellow)- 2 skeins
62 (white)- 1 skein
53 (black)- 1 skein
White, black and gray, of course, you need a little.
1mm solid felt in white, black, red and blue (matching the color of the overalls) colors.
Filler (synthetic fluff, sinteshar). Since the yarn is thin and the volume is large, it is very important to use quality filler so that the packing can be uniform.
Wire for the arm frame, masking tape or electrical tape.
Eyes on a secure mount. I used a 10mm diameter, but tied the iris with brown yarn to increase the diameter to 18-20mm.
plastic for soles, plastic bottle for glasses.
Needles for sewing on parts, pins for fixing parts and trying on, scissors, glue Moment gel.
Two buttons for overalls.
Belt or regular tape for glasses (you can just tie the cord).
And I almost forgot about the most important tool – the 3 mm hook.
We begin to crocheting with black yarn from the boots, the hook is 3 mm.
1 row– we collect a chain of 12 air loops
2 row– we begin to knit from the 3rd loop from the hook 9 sc, 4 sc in one loop, on the other side of the chain 8 sc, inc (24)
3 row– mark the beginning of the row with a marker, knit in a spiral inc, 5 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 4 inc from dc, 2 dc, 2 hdc, 5 sc, inc (30)
4 row– 1 sc, inc, 13 sc, 2 inc, 12 sc, inc (34)
We circle the resulting sole on paper for cutting out the insoles in the future.
5 row– 34 sc for the back wall (34)
6 row– 34 sc (34)
7 row– 8 sc, 2 dec, 12 sc, 2 dec, 6 sc (30)
8 row– 10 sc, 6 dec, 8 sc (24)
9 row– 24 sc (24)
Cut out the insole from the plastic according to the previously outlined pattern. We insert it into the boot, adjust it to size, if necessary. The insole should not be larger than the sole so that the boot does not bend. As a material, you can take lids, thin cutting boards. I often use unnecessary discount and accumulative cards of stores. We begin to fill in the detail.
10 row– mark the middle of the front of the boot. With respect to it, we make decreases 9 sc, 4 dec, 7 sc (20)
Due to the different density of knitting or yarn here and in the future, you may have a different location of dec / inc relative to the beginning of the row. Focus on your markers.
11 row– 7 sc, 4 dec, 5 sc (16)
12 row– 16 sc (16)
We fasten the thread, leave a long tip for sewing. We knit two parts.
If you want the minion to stand on its own, and already work with wire frames, then you can use wire in the legs. With its large dimensions, the toy weighs only 700 grams and may well stand on its own two feet. Insert the wire at this stage, then pass it through the beginning of knitting of the trousers.
We take blue yarn, hook 3 mm. We knit the pants of the jumpsuit.
1 row– 6 sc in MR (6)
2 row– 6 inc (12)
3 row– (1 sc, inc) * 6 times (18)
4 row– (2 sc, inc) * 6 times (24)
5 row– 24 sc behind the back wall (24)
6 row– 24 sc (24)
7 row– (3 sc, inc) * 6 times (30)
8-10 rows– 30 sc (30)
11 row– (4 sc, inc) * 6 times (36)
12 row– 36 sc (36)
Close knitting, leave a long tip for sewing. We knit 2 details.
Sewing the boots to the legs.
We start crocheting with fingers. Black yarn, hook 3 mm.
1 row– 6 sc in MR (6)
2 row– 6 inc (12)
3-4 rows– 12 sc (12)
5 row– (3 sc, inc)* 3 times (15)
6-11 rows– 15 sc (15)
We knit three elements. We do not break the thread at the third. First, connect two fingers.
12 row– 8 sc, attach the second finger, knit 14 sc on it, tie 7 sc on the first (30)
13 row– 30 sc (30)
14 row– we attach the third finger 4 sc, the next 7 sc we knit together with 7 sc of the third finger, we knit 19 sc (30)
15 row– we tie around the perimeter together with the remaining 8 sc of the third finger (31)
16 row– 29 sc, dec (30)
Making a wire frame. I am using 1mm wire. Cut off about 60 cm. Form three fingers 5 cm long. For safety and strength, we wrap each finger and brush with masking tape or electrical tape. Insert the frame. We fill our fingers.
17 row– (3 sc, dec)* 6 times (24)
18 row– (2 sc, dec)* 6 times (18)
19 row– 18 sc (18)
We fill the brush.
Further, two options are possible:
– you can immediately knit the cuff of the glove, and then raise the loops from the 19th row for knitting the hand itself;
– you switch to knitting in yellow, and knit the cuff separately and sew on (my version).
20-44 rows – change the color to yellow and knit 18 sc (18), gradually fill, not much.
We close the knitting, we hide the tips. We knit two elements.
We knit with black yarn, crochet hook 3 mm.
1 row– start with a chain of 19 air loops. Then we knit from the 3rd loop from the hook with increments, as in spiral knitting, but only in rotary rows.
2 row– 1 sc, inc, (2 sc, inc)* 5 times (24)
3 row– lifting loop, 2 sc, inc, (3 sc, inc)* 5 times (30)
4 row– lifting loop, 29 sc (30)
We knit two parts. We leave the long tip for sewing. We put on the handle, sew in a ring, sew on row 19.
That’s all for now. The next stage will be the longest, since the torso will already be knitted. The bottom of the jumpsuit and the body are one-piece knitted. Sew on the legs, knit the handles and talk about the hairstyle.
We start crocheting with blue yarn, crochet hook 3 mm.
1 row– 7 sc in MR (7)
2 row– 7 inc (14)
3 row– (1 sc, inc)*7 times (21)
4 row– (2 sc, inc)*7 times (28)
5 row– (3 sc, inc)*7 times (35)
6 row– (4 sc, inc)*7 times (42)
7 row– (5 sc, inc)*7 times (49)
8 row– (6 sc, inc)*7 times (56)
9 row– (7 sc, inc)*7 times (63)
10 row– (8 sc, inc)*7 times (70)
11 row– (9 sc, inc)*7 times (77)
12 row– (10 sc, inc)*7 times (84)
13 row– (11 sc, inc)*7 times (91)
14 row– (12 sc, inc)*7 times (98)
15 row– (13 sc, inc)*7 times (105)
16 row– (14 sc, inc)*7 times (112)
17 row– (15 sc, inc)*7 times (119)
18 row– (16 sc, inc)*7 times (126)
19-22 rows– 126 sc (126)
At this stage, you will need to sew on the legs. I have more knitted in the photo at this point, but it is inconvenient to sew like this. Legs are located close to the center of the minions. The toes of the boots are usually turned outward, but you can set any position. Stuff the legs tightly. After sewing on, mark the center of the front. Since in the future we will need a pocket in the front, I knitted 50 sc under it for the back walls to make it easier to lift the loops. Accordingly, set aside 25 stitches from the center marker to the left and right.
23 row– 5 sc, 50 sc for the back walls, 71 sc (126)
24-29 rows– 126 sc (126)
30 row– change the color of the thread to yellow (this must be done in the center of the front so that the transition is closed with a pocket) 126 sc (126)
31-48 rows– 126 sc (126)
We fill it gradually.
We attach the handles. We mark their location in the center of the sides. First, as with the third finger, we knit together with the loops of the body, 7 sc on each handle. The third finger of the hand should be from the side of the body.
49 row – 7 sc together with the first handle, 55 sc, 7 sc together with the second handle, 57 sc (126)
50 row – we knit along the perimeter with the remaining loops of the hands 11 sc (first handle), 55 sc, 11 sc (second handle), 57 sc (134)
51 row – 134 sc (134)
52 row – form the shoulders. On 11 sc pens, we make decreases ((dec, 1 sc)* 3 times, dec), 55 sc, ((dec, 1 sc) 3 times, dec), 57 sc (126)
We bend the wire at the shoulders, twist the ends together and wrap it with tape. Expand the tip down.
We continue to crocheting the body.
By increasing or decreasing the number of rows between 53 and 76, you can link different minions
53-76 rows – 126 sc (126)
77 row– (16 sc, dec)* 7 times (119)
78-93 rows – 119 sc (119)
94 row– (15 sc, dec)* 7 times (112)
We continue to fiber fill. Tightly so that there are no wrinkles or unevenness.
95 row – 112 sc (112)
96 row– (14 sc, dec)* 7 times (105)
97 row – 105 sc (105)
98 row– (13 sc, dec)* 7 times (98)
99 row – 98 sc (98)
100 row– (12 sc, dec)* 7 times (91)
101 row – 91 sc (91)
102 row– (11 sc, dec)* 7 times (84)
103 row – 84 sc (84)
104 row– (10 sc, dec)* 7 times (77)
105 row – 77 sc (77)
106 row– (9 sc, dec)* 7 times (70)
107 row – 70 sc (70)
108 row– (8 sc, dec)* 7 times (63)
109 row – 63 sc (63)
110 row– (7 sc, dec)* 7 times (56)
111 row– (6 sc, dec)* 7 times (49)
112 row– (5 sc, dec)* 7 times (42)
At this stitch, it’s time to think about your hairstyle. Check the options on the internet:
-separate hairs all over the head;
-the hairs on the crown in two rows (like mine);
-small bunch at the top of the head.
If you want the first option, then you can start attaching the hairs now. Cut the black yarn into lengths. At one end of the segment, make a large knot and attach it to the head with a needle or hook.
The second option can be fixed as well. I did just that at first. But then I changed the yarn to a thinner one and fixed the threads with just knots after knitting was closed.
In the case of the third option, pre-prepare the bundle and secure it when you pull the last 7 loops. Additionally, sew the bundle itself while pulling it together so that it holds better.
113 row– (4 sc, dec)* 7 times (35)
114 row– (3 sc, dec)* 7 times (28)
115 row– (2 sc, dec)* 7 times (21)
116 row– (1 sc, dec)* 7 times (14)
117 row– 7 dec (7)
We tighten the remaining loops, fasten the tip, hide it inside the toy.
We crocheting with blue yarn, crochet hook 3 mm.
Let’s start with the front pocket. We left the front walls of 50 loops on the stomach. Now we crochet the first row along them (then everything is crochet in rotary rows):
1 row– 50 sc (50)
2 row– lifting loop (ch), 2 skip 40 sc, 2 skip, 1 sc (46)
3 row– ch, dec, 40 sc, dec, 1 sc (44)
4 row– ch, dec, 38 sc, dec, 1 sc (42)
5 row– ch, dec, 36 sc, dec, 1 sc (40)
6 row– ch, dec, 34 sc, dec, 1 sc (38)
7 row– ch, dec, 32 sc, dec, 1 sc (36)
8 row– ch, dec, 30 sc, dec, 1 sc (34)
9 row– ch, dec, 28 sc, dec, 1 sc (32)
10 row– ch, dec, 26 sc, dec, 1 sc (30)
11 row– ch, dec, 24 sc, dec, 1 sc (28)
12 row– ch, dec, 22 sc, dec, 1 sc (26)
13 row– ch, dec, 20 sc, dec, 1 sc (24)
14-32 rows– 24 sc (24)
You can tie the edges of the sc if you want.
Behind the center of the back on the belt, we also collect 24 sc, knit in rotary rows:
1-18 rows – 24 sc (24)
Straps. We knit 57 rows of 4 sc. The number of rows you have may be different. Try on as you knit.
We decorate the front pocket along the perimeter, the back and the straps of the jumpsuit with white thread. I also highlighted the belt with it.
We collect a chain of 15 air loops. Next, we knit in rotary rows:
1-10 rows– ch, 14 sc (15)
11 row – ch, dec, 9 sc, dec, 1 sc (13)
12 row – 13 sc (13)
13 row – ch, dec, 7 sc, dec, 1 sc (11)
The minions have a logo on the pocket. You can view it online. I made it
felt: black circle D20 mm + letter G in blue felt. The letter is glued to the circle, the circle is glued to the pocket. Sew the pocket with white threads.
Now we sew the straps with white thread. Add buttons to the front.
There were only loops on the belt. I made four of them from chains of air loops.
I will describe the process of creating exactly my version. But you can look at the pictures and choose any facial expression for your minion. The main parts will be the same, but depending on the chosen expression, you may have a different location of the iris on the hemisphere (gaze direction), eyelid size (open gaze, half-closed eyes, etc.), the presence of a lower eyelid (squinted gaze).
First, we crochet all the necessary parts. The eye consists of a hemisphere, a back cover, an iris (if the size of a safe eye does not suit you) and an eyelid. We start with a hemisphere. We knit in white, hook 3 mm.
1 row– 6 sc in MR (6)
2 row– 6 inc (12)
3 row– (1 sc, inc)* 6 times (18)
4 row– (2 sc, inc)* 6 times (24)
5 row– (3 sc, inc)* 6 times (30)
6 row– (4 sc, inc)* 6 times (36)
7 row– (5 sc, inc)* 6 times (42)
8 row– (6 sc, inc)* 6 times (48)
9-12 rows– 48 sc (48)
We knit two parts.
Back cover. We knit in white, hook 3 mm. We repeat the same from rows 1 to 8. We crochet two parts. We leave the long tip for sewing.
We knit the irises in the desired color (I have brown) 6 sc in MR, 6 inc. Insert the eye into the center of the iris.
Knit with yellow yarn, crochet hook 3 mm. The principle of knitting is like that of a cuff, only in this case we subtract the number of sc. My eyelid takes about 1/4 of the eye. For this option, a chain of 18 sc is enough. If you want to make it more or less, then add / subtract 6 loops so that the dec / inc are uniform.
1 row– we collect a chain of 19 ch, we begin to knit from the 3rd loop from the hook 17 sc (18)
2 row-ch, 17 sc (18)
3 row– ch, dec, (1 sc, dec)* 5 times (12)
4-5 rows– ch, 11 sc (12)
6 row – ch, 5 dec, 1 sc (7)
7 row-ch, 3 dec (4)
We fasten the thread, leave the tip for sewing. We knit two parts.
We collect the eyes.
We install the safe eye with the iris in the right place. My minion looks up dreamily, so the base of the eye is located between rows 4 and 5. Sew on the eyelids. Slightly covering the iris of the eyelid adds dreaminess. Be careful that the eyes are symmetrical (direction of gaze). Sew on the back cover. At the very end of sewing, we fill the eye.
Remained rectangles for the frame
We knit with a gray thread, hook 3 mm.
1 row – we collect a chain of 51 ch, we knit from the 3rd loop from the hook 49 sc (50)
2-15 rows – rotary rows ch, 49 sc (50)
16 row– add bumps (BO) 7 sc, (BO, 4 sc)* 8 times, 3 sc (50)
Bump: the element is performed on the basis of 4 double crochets, which are knitted at one point with unfinished single crochets, collected in one loop into a common top.
17-20 rows – ch, 49 sc (50)
We knit two parts. We leave the long tip for sewing.
Fold in half lengthwise, sew. On the other hand, we also make a seam for symmetry. Now we need a 2 liter plastic bottle for inserts into the frame. Cut out a rectangle, insert it into the knitted part (to facilitate insertion, round off the corners on one side of the strip), adjust it in length (cut it off from the rounding side), sew the part into a ring. Trying on the eye.
We repeat everything one more time.
After the frame is ready, we try on both eyes, fix their correct position in the frame and sew to it from behind. Moreover, the circles of the frame should be located seams to each other (there are no lumps). Pay attention also to the fact that the frame has different ends.
The next step is to sew the frames to the body. We fasten them together (we sew along 4-5 sc).
Strap Remaining I used a 20mm wide strap, but you can just tie the cord to the length you want. To attach the cord to the glasses, we crochet two rectangles with a gray thread 8 sc for 6 rows. Fold the rectangle in half across the knit, insert the end of the cord and sew. Sew the opposite side to the frame. We check the length. We also sew the other end of the cord into a rectangle and attach it to the frame on the other side.
So, we need 1 mm felt of white, black and red (if you do with the tongue) colors, a smile template, Moment glue gel and a black helium pen or marker. You can draw a smile template yourself or translate it from your computer screen. I added a photo of minions in the carousel to help you. I drew myself, and I had many options In the photo there are three final ones, of which I chose the final one.
1. Cut out the main outline from black felt.
2. Apply white felt on top, outline the edge of the mouth (the outline is visible through the felt) and draw the teeth. If you also have teeth below, then we repeat the same thing. Let’s not forget about symmetry. Cut out.
3. Cut out a thin strip of red felt, put the lower teeth on it, circle them, draw a semicircle on top. Cut out.
4. Trying on all the parts. Trim and align the contours.
5. First we glue the teeth on the black base, then the tongue.
6. With a helium pen or marker, select the teeth, drawing the interdental lines.
7. We stick a smile on the body at the required height.
If you still find it difficult, then you can simply cut a thin strip of black felt of the required length and shape and stick it on.
That’s all. Congratulations !! Finish Crochet Minion Rush!
