Lumpy Space Princess is my absolute favourite character from Adventure Time. She is such a boss babe; she know’s what she’s lumpin’ about and won’t settle for less!
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 arms are worked in the round. This amigurumi has just 4 separate pieces, not including the star.
The finished measurements are approximately 10cm/4″ from top to bottom.
Let’s get started! (Or Pin/Shop for later!)

Tie off. Repeat rows 1-23 for the back panel.
Using 2.75mm hook, the arms are worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every row.
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 2-17: Sc 4 (4 sts)
Tie off. Repeat for second arm.
The arms seem ridiculously long right now because they will be folded once they are sewn onto the front panel. If you prefer LSP to have regular, unfolded arms, feel free to crochet fewer than 17 rows to achieve whatever length you prefer.
Move on to final assembly below!
Step 1: Face and Arms
First, we need to attach and stitch on our facial features to the front panel.
Insert 6mm safety eyes into the front panel about 9-10 rows down from the top with about 5 sts between them. Use black crochet thread to stitch a straight line across the top of each eye to give LSP that deadpan/unimpressed expression.
Next, using black crochet thread, stitch on a semi-circle underneath and slightly to the left of the right eye. This is sort of the “cheek”. Next to that, you will stitch around two stitches multiple times to create the oval mouth.
Cut out a star from yellow felt (it doesn’t need to be perfect!) and glue to the top of LSP’s head (the star can also be glued on after assembly if you prefer).
Finally, stitch the arms to either side of the front panel using your main colour yarn. Tie knots on the back of the panel to secure.
Step 2: Body
Here are the pieces you should now have at this step.
Make sure the front is facing you as you crochet around the outside.
Starting on the left side, at the top of the head, begin attaching the panels together by single crocheting around the outside of the panels.
Continue crocheting around the bottom of the panels, around all the bumps, and up the other side. Start stuffing the body.
Continue to crochet up the body and 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.
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.
Fold her arms to finish the look and you’re lumpin’ done!
