PATTERN

Let’s get started! 

First, we make the ARMS and leave them ready for later assembly with the body. 

Start with SALMON color… 

1: 5 sc in MR 

2 to 15: 5 sc 

The arms are without stuffing. 

Amigurumi Messi Feet

With MUSTARD color, chain 5 and… 

1: inc, 2 sc, 3 sc in the same stitch, 3 sc 

2: 2 inc, 2 sc, 3 inc, 2 sc, inc 

3: 16 sc in BLO 

4: 6 sc, 3 dec, 4 sc (13) 

5: 4 sc, 4 dec, 1 sc (9) 

Switch to WHITE color… 

6: 4 sc, 2 dec, 1 sc (7) in BLO 

IMPORTANT: In my case, I only stuff the feet a little at this point, the rest of the leg not at all since I crochet quite tightly and it’s not necessary for me, but it’s up to each person. 

7 to 13: 7 sc 

Switch to CELESTE color… 

14: 7 sc 

Switch to SALMON color… 

15: 7 sc in BLO 

16 to 19: 7 sc 

Switch to WHITE color… 

20 to 23: 7 sc 

JOINING THE LEGS 

IMPORTANT: Start from the center of the back of one of the legs, but always make sure the legs are aligned correctly. 

With WHITE color… 

24: 3 sc, 2 ch, 7 sc (2nd leg), 2 sc (in the chains), 4 sc 

25: 18 sc 

26: 1 sc, 2 inc, 2 sc, 2 inc, 11 sc (22) 

27 to 29: 22 sc 

30: 1 sc, 2 dec, 2 sc, 2 dec, 11 sc (18) 

Switch to SALMON color… 

31: 18 sc in BLO 

32: 18 sc 

33: 7 sc, dec, repeat (16) 

34: 16 sc 

JOINING THE ARMS

You will crochet 1 sc in each stitch of round 34 plus 5 sc from each arm (10 sc). 

IMPORTANT: Maintain the following proportion… It will depend on where the arms are situated with the hook, but the important thing is that they are… 

35: 8 sc on the back, 8 sc on the front, 5 sc on each arm (total of 26 sc) 

36: dec, 5 sc, 4 dec, 5 sc, 3 dec (total of 18 stitches, the decreases are at the level of the arms/shoulders) 

37: dec, 3 sc, 3 dec, 3 sc, 2 dec (12) 

Stuff the body. 

38: 6 dec (6) 

At this point, we have finished the torso and will make the neck… 

39 and 40: 6 sc (I recommend using a size 1 hook for these 2 rounds to give firmness without needing to insert a wire to support the head) 

41: 6 inc (12) 

42: 12 inc (24) 

43: 1 sc, inc, repeat (36) 

44: 5 sc, inc, repeat (42) 

45 to 54: 42 sc 

Place the EYES between rounds 49 and 50 with 8 central stitches apart. 

55: 5 sc, dec, repeat (36) 

56: 4 sc, dec, repeat (30) 

57: 3 sc, dec, repeat (24) Start stuffing the head. 

58: 2 sc, dec, repeat (18) 

59: 1 sc, dec, repeat (12) Finish stuffing. 

60: 6 dec (6) 

Amigurumi Messi Hair

We make the cap… With MAHOGANY color… 

1: 6 sc in MR 

2: 6 inc (12) 

3: 1 sc, inc, repeat (18) 

4: 2 sc, inc, repeat (24) 

5: 3 sc, inc, repeat (30) 

6: 4 sc, inc, repeat (36) 

Now stop crocheting in rounds and start crocheting in ROWS. 

7: dec, 10 sc, dec, 10 sc, dec (23) 

8: 4 sc, dec, 11 sc, dec, 4 sc (21) 

9: dec, 1 sc, inc, 13 sc, inc, 1 sc, dec (21) 

10: dec, 17 sc, dec (19) 

11: dec, inc, 3 sc, dec, 3 sc, dec, 3 sc, inc, dec (17) 

12: dec, inc, 2 sc, dec, 3 sc, dec, 2 sc, inc, dec (15) 

13: dec, 11 sc, dec (13) 

Once we have the basic cap ready, we will do a round of sc around the entire edge, but keep in mind that upon reaching the top front (corresponding to the forehead line) we will make some small strips for the bangs… 

1st strip) 2 ch and 1 sc starting from the 2nd ch 

2: 3 ch and starting from the 2nd ch, 2 sc 

3: 4 ch, 3 sc 

4 and 5: 3 ch, 2 sc 

6: 2 ch, 1 sc 

IMPORTANT: All are attached to the cap with slip stitches. 

Amigurumi Messi Beard

With MAHOGANY color… 

Make 17 chains and starting from the 2nd ch, start the first row. 

1: 6 sc, now make 6 ch and skip 4 stitches of the base chain to make another 6 sc 

2: 18 sc 

Amigurumi Messi Ears

In SALMON color… 

4 sc in a MR, when closed it forms a kind of semicircle that we will attach to the body at eye level but separated by 4 or 5 stitches (test to see what you like best). 

Amigurumi Messi Shirt 

I’ll leave you a diagram to explain it more simply. 

To finish, remember to embroider the details of the name, shirt number, collar, and sleeves in black (I recommend using thinner thread). 

Enjoy and make it at home! 

Lastly, make the sleeves: 3 rounds of 8 sc 

Make 2 strips. 

Start here… 

In WHITE… 

HANDLE PASSES THROUGH THE ARM 

22 chains and 21 sc
