If you hate sewing as much as I do, you will absolutely love this round up of free no sew amigurumi patterns! I have to be honest – my LEAST favourite thing about crocheting amigurumi is the sewing. I love to crochet but sewing sometimes feels like pulling teeth! Often, my work space is littered with crocheted limbs and body parts waiting to be sewn together (lol – that sounds so macabre, doesn’t it!) because I just can’t bring myself to do it.
In fact, whenever possible, I try to adapt patterns to reduce sewing by using the no-sew method to attach amigurumi parts. So when I first discovered no-sew amigurumi that are all made in one piece, I was delighted!
So, to share love, this round up features over thirty super cute no-sew amigurumi patterns that you will just love! Most of these one piece amigurumi patterns are quite simple to crochet and range from tiny amigurumi patterns to larger pieces. They would make wonderful gifts or are great patterns for your next craft fair. And the best part? All the patterns in this round up are free!

We hope you enjoyed this amazing round up of free amigurumi no-sew crochet patterns! Below we have answers to a few of your commonly asked questions about no sew amigurumi patterns.
How do you make an amigurumi pattern no sew or low sew?
Not all amigurumi patterns can be no-sew but many can! If you love reducing (or removing!) sewing in your projects, don’t miss our tutorial on how to attach pieces to amigurumi without sewing. This pattern shows how to add parts into your amigurumi projects without sewing! It doesn’t work will all parts but anything that is added horizontally along the row can be crocheted in, reducing or eliminating the sewing in your project! So, just like that, you can turn almost any amigurumi pattern into no sew or low sew!
Are no sew amigurumi patterns easy for beginners?
Sometimes people assume that no sew amigurumi patterns are easy for beginners because if they don’t have the sewing (which is often difficult to do correctly as a beginner), they must be easier. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. It really depends on the pattern. Some no sew amigurumi patterns are very simple for a beginner if they use basic stitches and techniques. However, sometimes they can be more tricky, as they use complex stitches and techniques to eliminate the sewing. As with any pattern, I would suggest looking at the difficulty level on the pattern if it’s stated. If it isn’t, you should read through the pattern and see if the instructions make sense to you or if there are techniques that you don’t know.
What stitches are used in no sew amigurumi patterns?
No sew amigurumi patterns use a variety of stitches. The most basic stitch used is the single crochet, which is the stitch most commonly used in amigurumi because it is tight and allows for stuffing not to show through. Patterns will also use slip stitch, increases, and the invisible decrease, plus techniques such as back loops only, front loops only. Patterns may also use a variety of other stitches such as double crochet or half double crochet. Bobble stitch is also a very common stitch used in no sew amigurumi patterns, as it is often used to make the arms, legs, or tail without sewing!
The best way to know if you know the techniques that you need in any pattern is to read through the pattern before you begin. If there are any stitches or techniques that you don’t know, you can easily look up tutorials before you begin.
What yarn do you need for no sew amigurumi patterns?
With most amigurumi, you can use any yarn that you like, as long as you use the relevant hook. Acrylic and cotton yarns are usually popular for amigurumi. The hook is usually two sizes below that recommended on the yarn label. However, if you want your project to be the same size and shape as that used by the designer, you should use the same yarn that they recommend.
If you would like your no sew amigurumi project to become bigger, use a thicker yarn with a larger hook. Super bulky yarn is a really quick way to make projects a lot bigger! Similarly, if you would like to make the pattern smaller, you can use a thinner yarn with a smaller hook.
