Kobold Amigurumi

Louie's Loops

Medium difficulty


1 hour




In this crochet tutorial we'll be crocheting Kobolds, playful, goblin-like creatures often found in underground mines and caverns. I like to think of them as mini mischievous dragon kin minions, inspired by roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder.

  1. I modified the skull helmet to fit on one of these guys, and after I embroidered on some skeletal details, it was adorable. (You do have to sew the helmet on to make it fit, which might be a drawback in case I wanted it removable).
