Found On The InterNERD: Amigurumi

Hey gals and gents, its InterNERD time! Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting dolls. I had no idea this was a thing, until I kept seeing more and more pictures of them. It’s pretty cool, except it’s too adorable! The toughest most bad ass dude you wanted to amigurumi is going to turn out cute and cuddly. I’ll show you what I mean. Here are the coolest, nerdiest amigurumi I found on the InterNERD.

Amigurumi ATHF. Aqua Teen Hunger Force here ready for action. This came from, they have a ton of patterns and tutorials if you wanted to try creating one yourself!


Amigurumi Mythbusters. Adam and Jamie have never looked more endearing. That could be a myth they try to bust on a future episode.


Amigurumi Optimus Prime. This Optimus Prime is pretty rad. If a dog plays with him, he would probably transform into a pile of yarn.


Amigurumi Mario. Here we have Mario and Fire Mario looking rather surprised. These are on sale right now on Etsy for $20 bucks each.


Amigurumi Exorcist. Ha this is great. A scene from the movie The Exorcist where she projectile vomits all over the priest. Thanks to amigurumi, one of the most disturbing movie scenes in history is now cutified.


Amigurumi Daleks. From Dr. Who the killing machines Daleks are looking rather diabolical. They will exterminate you with their cuteness.


Amigurumi Jake. Adventure Time’s Jake the dog. He probably doesn’t stretch but he looks awesome just the same.


Amigurumi Star Wars. These Star Wars ones are awesome. I was kind of on the fence about trying this craft, this might have sealed the deal.


Thanks for tuning in. There are a ton of great amigurumi patterns for free online. So many talented people have made some really original ones. Have any cool amigurumi dolls of your own? Send them to, or share them on our Facebook page. Tune in next week to get your nerd fix!
