Finn the Human Free Crochet Pattern

Finn the Human Free Crochet Pattern

I have been having a major Adventure Time moment lately! I just started watching the show recently (I know, I’m way behind!) and I fell in love with how weird and wonderful it is. So you know I had to crochet a few of my favourite characters! This pattern is for Finn the Human, but I also have patterns for Jake and LSP! C’mon, grab your friends!

The Details

As usual, this pattern is made in the same style as all my patterns with some small exceptions! The body is worked in separate pieces worked in flat rows and then joined together to give them that unique 2-D look. The legs and arms are worked in the round. This amigurumi has 6 separate pieces, not including the backpack.

This pattern incorporates the tapestry crochet technique and has a little bit of colour-work involved so please be sure to read the “Reading this Pattern” section!

The finished measurements are approximately 20cm/8″ from top to bottom.

Let’s get started! (Or Pin/Shop for later!)

Reading this Pattern and Colour Changes:

Everything is worked in single crochet stitches, unless otherwise specified. So, in order to indicate the colour-changes, I have omitted the usual “sc” in front of the stitch counts in lines with colour-changes and I’ve used the associated colour letter instead. Here are some examples:

  • “B2, W8” means to work the first 2 stitches in blue and the next 8 stitches in white.
  • “W3, O6, W3” means to work the first 3 sc in white, the next 6 sc in oatmeal, and the last 3 sts in white.

Due to the colour-changes, you will have multiple balls of yarn attached to your project at once; white, blue and oatmeal. Simply carry your yarn on the back of the panel as you go.

When changing colours, you will insert your hook into the stitch for the last stitch of Colour A and pull up a loop. Then, with Colour B, yarn over and complete the stitch by pulling through both loops with Colour B. Drop your working yarn in Colour A and continue with Colour B. You will pick your Colour A working yarn back up again on the way back in the next row when you need it.

Make sure to always drop your yarn on the WRONG side of your panel! This will be different depending on whether you’re working an odd or even row. So, for the front panel, whenever you are working an odd-numbered row (row 1, 3, 5, etc), the right side of your panel will be facing you. When you’re working an even-numbered row, the wrong side will be facing you.

Pattern

Front Body Panel:

First we will start with the shorts. We will make two separate leg pieces and then join them together and continue with the rest of the body working up. Using a 2.75mm hook and dark blue yarn:

Row 1: Ch 4, sc 3 (3 sts), ch 1, turn

Rows 2-3: Sc 3, (3 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 4: Sc 3 (3 sts)

Tie off. Repeat rows 1-4 for second short leg but do not tie off second leg. Ch 1 and turn and continue to row 5. We will join the legs together in the next row.

Row 5: Sc 3 across first leg, ch 6, sc across second leg (12 sts including chs), ch 1, turn

Finn the Human

Row 6: Sc across (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 7: Sc across (12 sts), switch to light blue, ch 1, turn

Rows 8-18: Sc across (12 sts), ch 1, turn

In the next row, we will start the colourwork for the head and face. Remember, the “B” represents light blue, W=White and O=Oatmeal.

Row 19: B2, W8, B2 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 20: W12 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 21: W4, O4, W4 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 22: W2, O8, W2 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Rows 23-24:W1, O10, W1 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 25: W2, O8, W2 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 26:W3, O6, W3 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Rows 27-28: W12 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Now we will start the “ears”. You will be crocheting only part way across the previous row before chaining and turning. The ear is worked totally in white.

Row 29: Sc 3 (3 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 30: Dec, sc 1 (2 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 31: Sc3tog (1 st)

Tie off. Turn piece so that the ear you just completed is on the left. Insert your hook into the last st of the row and repeat rows 29-31 to complete second ear.

Back Body Panel:

The back body panel is worked exactly the same as the front, except there is only one row of colourwork for the shirt/head and no colour-work for the face. Here are those stitch counts again without the colour-work!

Row 1: Ch 4, sc 3 (3 sts), ch 1, turn

Rows 2-3: Sc 3, (3 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 4: Sc 3 (3 sts)

Tie off. Repeat rows 1-4 for second short leg but do not tie off second leg. Ch 1 and turn and continue to row 5. We will join the legs together in the next row.

Row 5: Sc 3 across first leg, ch 6, sc across second leg (12 sts including chs), ch 1, turn

Row 6: Sc across (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 7: Sc across (12 sts), switch to light blue, ch 1, turn

Rows 8-18: Sc across (12 sts), ch 1, turn

In the next row, we will do one row of colourwork and then complete the rest of the head in white.

Row 19: B2, W8, B2 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Remaining rows are worked entirely in white.

Rows 20-28: Sc 12 (12 sts), ch 1, turn

Now we will start the “ears”. You will be crocheting only part way across the previous row before chaining and turning.

Row 29: Sc 3 (3 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 30: Dec, sc 1 (2 sts), ch 1, turn

Row 31: Sc3tog (1 st)

Tie off. Turn piece so that the ear you just completed is on the left. Insert your hook into the last st of the row and repeat rows 29-31 to complete second ear.

Tie off.

Arms:

Using 2.75mm hook, the arms are worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every row. Start in Oatmeal.

Important: you may need to use a chopstick or the back of your crochet hook to stuff the arm because it is quite narrow. Be sure to start stuffing after the first couple of rounds and top up stuffing after every couple of rounds as you go.

Rnd 1: MR 4 sc (4 sts)

Rnds 2-11: Sc 4 (4 sts)

Switch to light blue.

Rnds 12-16: Sc 4 (4 sts)

Tie off. Repeat for second arm.

Legs:

Using 2.75mm hook, the legs are worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every row. Start in black.

Important: you may need to use a chopstick or the back of your crochet hook to stuff the arm because it is quite narrow. Be sure to start stuffing after the first couple of rounds and top up stuffing after every couple of rounds as you go.

Rnd 1: MR 4 (4 sts)

Rnds 2-4: Sc 4 (4 sts)

Switch to white.

Rnd 5: Sc 4 (4 sts)

Switch to Oatmeal.

Rnds 6-15: Sc 4 (4 sts)

Tie off. Repeat for second leg.

Backpack:

The backpack is worked in two separate flat panels and then joined. And the front actually opens so you can put little adventure supplies in there!

Row 1: Ch 8, switch to light green and ch 5 (13 chs)

Row 2: Slst 4 in light green, switch to dark green and slst in remaining 8 chs.

Tie off. Weave in tails in the middle of the straps but keep the tails at the end for stitching later. Repeat for second strap.

Backpack Assembly:

Here are the pieces for the backpack:

Finn the Human

Place the front and back backpack panels together so that the edges and colours line up. Starting at the top of the backpack, insert your hook through both panels and begin crocheting the two panels together, starting in light green.

Stop after one or two stitches and insert the light green end of the first strap between the panels in the top “corner” of the backpack and stitch in place using the yarn tails by stitching through all three pieces, the front panel, the strap and the back panel. Once secure, tie a knot and hide the yarn tails inside.

Continue crocheting around the outside of the backpack panels, switching to dark green where appropriate. Insert the end of the first strap between the panels at the bottom of the backpack and stitch in place the same way you did for the first.

Continue crocheting around the bottom of the bag. Insert the dark green end of the second strap at the bottom of the backpack on the other side and stitch in place. Continue crocheting up the side, switching back to light green. Stitch the light green end of the second strap in place between the panels.

Continue crocheting around to the top of the backpack, slst to first st and tie off.

Move on to final assembly below!

Assembly:

Step 1: Face

First, we need to attach and stitch on our facial features to the front panel.

Insert 6mm safety eyes into the front panel between rows 4 and 5 of the face (i.e. the Oatmeal rows) with about 5 sts between them.

Using black crochet thread, stitch on a mouth.

Step 2: Body, Arms and Legs

Here are the pieces you should now have at this step (please excuse the weird white space in the photo; the pattern originally called for the legs and shorts to be worked as one piece, but I changed the pattern and forgot to take new photos. Sorry!)

First, cut two lengths of light blue yarn and two lengths of dark blue yarn about 12″/30cm long each and set aside for later. Place the two body panels together, matching up all sides.

Make sure the front is facing you as you crochet around the outside.

Starting on the left side, at the top of the head under the ear, begin attaching the panels together by single crocheting around the outside of the panels starting in white.

Crochet down the body until you get to the shirt. Insert an arm between the panels and, using a length of light blue yarn you set aside earlier, stitch the arm in place by stitching through all three layers, the front panel, the arm and the back panel. Once secure, tie a knot and hide the yarn tails between the panels.

Continue crocheting down the body, switching to light blue where appropriate. When you get to the arm, simply crochet in the stitches of the front panel only, since this small section is already sewn shut. Continue crocheting both panels together as usual when you are past the arm. Switch to dark blue where appropriate.

Stop before you reach the bottom of the shorts. Insert the first leg and secure in place the same way you did for the arm, using a length of dark blue yarn that you set aside earlier.

(Sc, ch 1, sc) into each of the bottom corners of the shorts.

Continue crocheting around the panels. Stop at the other side of the shorts and insert and stitch on the second leg.

Continue crocheting up the other side, switching to light blue where appropriate. Start stuffing the body.

Insert the arm the same way you did for the first. Continue crocheting up the body, stuffing as you go. Switch back to white where appropriate.

Keep stuffing!

Crochet up and around the ear. (Sc, ch 1, sc) into the tip of the ear. Stuff the ear.

Continue to crochet across the top of the head, topping up stuffing as you go. Be sure to push the stuffing up into the top of the head.

Crochet up and around second ear. (Sc, ch 1, sc) into the tip. Top up stuffing.

When you are satisfied with the stuffing, close with a slst to first st. Tie off. With your tapestry needle, poke the yarn tail back inside the piece.

Throw on that magical backpack and get adventuring!
