Free Baymax Crochet Pattern


I will get to part two of 'How to Make Money from Crochet', but in the meantime I thought I'd share this with you...

I've been working so hard on The Book (that would be 'Crochet Dress-Up' published by CICO books, you can order it now :) ) that I haven't made a 'just for us' pattern for ages.  I promised the beasts that as soon as I'd finished I'd make them something.  This is what they wanted - Baymax from Disney's Big Hero 6, they are completely in love with him, well to be honest so am I.  In fact so's my sister.  Oh, and HER childrenActually, who isn't in love with Baymax?  

Rather than trotting off to buy a little plush thing, or a plastic monstrosity for them to play with I did my usual thing of making one.  A MASSIVE one.  I think he comes in around £15 if you use Cygnet Super Chunky (depending where you get it from of course), and an excellent way to save on stuffing is to keep all the leftover threads from when you finish a project - I geekily made a special 'threads' bag - and use that when you've collected enough.

He has been exceptionally well received, played with a LOT and now sleeps in Big Beasts bed.

So here's your free pattern, it's not been tested so any feedback would be great.

Big Hero 6
Baymax

You will need 5-6 balls of super chunky yarn and a 12mm hook.  I use Cygnet Super Chunky – it’s really inexpensive, is really nice to work with and is good and robust.
1-2 bags of stuffing – he’s a big fella!

Felt is good for the eyes and mouth, although I used an old sock and a bit of zpagetti yarn, so whatever you have to hand.

Work in the round, and use a stitch marker, unless you like to live dangerously.

  3. Hi Lorrie, he's around 75-80cm tall using the super chunky and a 12mm hook, but |I guess he'd be a lot smaller if you used regular DK and a 4mm hook instead x

  4. Hello, I just want to say that I love your crochet pattern for Baymax but there are some difficulties. The arms are not looking anything like the picture, if anything it seems as if it is missing a few rounds in the pattern. For the ending of the head and body the hole is too big and when I try sewing it together it is always looking a bit stretched. I don't know if I am doing something wrong or if it is a typo but I just wanted to let you know. Please help me.

    1. Hi Ginelle, thanks for getting in touch, it was a typo! I've adjusted it now, always the problem when you're whizzing things up for fun!

    2. For the body I added rows and it worked out great the way I did it. Here's what I did:

      26. SC next 7, SC2TOG, SC next 12, SC2TOG, SC next 7 (28)

      27. SC2TOG, SC next 12, SC2TOG, SC next 12 (26)

      28. SC next 6, SC2TOG, SC next 10, SC2TOG, SC next 6 (24)

      29. SC2TOG, SC next 10, SC2TOG, SC next 10 (22)

      30. SC next 5, SC2TOG, SC next 8, SC2TOG, SC next 5 (20)

      31. SC2TOG, SC next 8, SC2TOG, SC next 8 (18)

      And that did it for the body

      I am working on the arms right now, and am assuming for rows 3-8 you just single crochet in each stitch. Are my assumptions right?

  5. I notice that on the body at rows 24-26 you decrease twice and lose four stitches. Are you missing rows, or do I need to decrease down to the number of stitches? Otherwise going well and having fun. Kitty likes it too, she pulled the unfinished body into "her" chair. Thanks.

  6. There are still issues with the body instructions. Between lines 23 & 24, 24 & 25, and 25 & 26, you decrease the total count for the lines by four but you are only removing two stitches per row. I made up instructions because I wasn't sure if I should add rows to only reduce by two or remove extra stitches to stay with your row count.

  7. On the arms for 3-8 it doesn't say what to do! Do you continue 2? Thanks for your help!

  9. Hello,
    Should I decrease by two and add some rows or should I decrease by four for the body at line 23-26? Thank you for the pattern and help.
