Spongebob's Plankton amigurumi

Filed Under: kids, Crafts, knitting and crochet

Amigurumi version of Plankton from Spongebob Squarepants, by Craftster's LadyLuigi.I have to admit that Spongebob Squarepants is one of my guilty pleasures: the antics of the little "absorbent, yellow, and porous" ocean dweller are always good medicine for a bad day.

So I was delighted to see this amigurumi version of Sheldon J. Plankton, the evil nemesis of our hero Spongebob's employer, Mr. Krabs. He was created by Craftster user LadyLuigi, and is one of the site's new featured projects.

To make this amigurumi, you need a passable knowledge of crochet: the instructions given for Plankton (on the fifth page of replies) may not be enough for a beginner. But if you have crocheted a few things before, you shouldn't experience any real problems.

Required supplies include:
  • an H hook (approximate size)
  • a couple of pipe cleaners
  • black embroidery floss
  • stuffing
  • scrap yarn in the following colors: olive green (you'll need the most of this), pale yellow or cream, red, and white
Plankton may ordinarily be 1% evil and 99% hot gas, but in this case, he's primarily made of yarn -- and 100% adorable. I bet he won't even try to steal your Krabby Patties.
