Lila the lychee ❤️

This pattern is one of the easiest and basic amigurumi patterns that you can find. It’s beginner friendly. You will create three rounded pieces so you will learn the basics of how to make an attractive amigurumi. Trust me, this could be the start of a new hobby in your life!


The skill level of this pattern is beginner. It’s written in american terms. The gauge for this pattern, though is provided is not important. You can use a different yarn long as you use a smaller size hook than the recommended in the yarn label; if so, work a little bit tight so you can’t see the filling through the stitches. If you use a different yarn weight the size of your amigurumi may vary, mine is 6.5 cm (2½”) approximately, including the stem. The number that is between parentheses at the end of some rounds is the number of stitches you should have.


5 sts x 6 rows in 2.5 cm (1″). The gauge is not important for this pattern.

Materials list:

  • Light worsted weight yarn, a small amount (scrap yarn) in off white, medium pink and a little bit of dark brown.
  • 3.00 mm crochet hook (if you can’t find it you can use a 3.25 mm (D-3 USA).
  • Safety eyes.
  • Black embroidery floss.
  • Polyfill.
  • Scissors.
  • Darning needle.


  • St, sts: stitch, stitches.
  • Ch: chain.
  • Sl st: slipped stitch.
  • Sc: single crochet.
  • Inc: increase, making two stitches in the same st.
  • Dec: decrease, making two stitches together.


The fruit (in off white):

  1. 6 sc in a magic ring (6).
  2. Inc around (12).
  3. (Sc, inc) repeat to the end of the round (18).
  4. (2 sc, inc) repeat to the end of the round (24).
  5. Sc around.
  6. Repeat round 5 four times. Place the safety eyes here with 4 sts in between.
  7. (2 sc, dec) repeat to the end of the round (18). Embroider the mouth here stuff your amigurumi.
  8. (Sc, dec) repeat to the end of the round (12).
  9. Dec around (6).

Cut the yarn leaving a long yarn tail, close it and weave in all yarn ends.

The skin (make two, in pink):

  1. 6 sc in a magic ring (6).
  2. Inc around (12).
  3. (Sc, inc) repeat to the end of the round (18).
  4. (2 sc, inc) repeat to the end of the round (24).
  5. (7 sc, inc) repeat to the end of the round (27).
  6. Sc around.
  7. Repeat round 6, three more times.

Cut the yarn leaving a long yarn tail and fasten off.

The stem (with brown):

  1. 6 ch.
  2. 1 sl st in the 2nd ch from hook, make sl sts to the end of the row, cut the yarn leaving a long yarn tail.


Join the two pink pieces together by sewing no more than 3 stitches. This will fix the two skin pieces in the right position. See the photo below.

Sew the stem on top of one of the two skin pieces.

Place the fruit inside of the lower skin piece and adjust it stretching it a little bit if needed. Then you can close the skin and adjust it like you did before if needed. My recommendation is to leave your lychee closed overnight as a way to block it and then it’s ready to play with it.

Well that’s it! Now you have a cute little lychee amigurumi in your collection. I hope you liked this pattern and all I can say is stay tuned for new designs and post.
