Supplies: Amigurumi – Crochet Small Sun “Sunshine”

Darning Yarn

I have used darning yarn in the shade of black here. If you cannot find a suitable darning yarn in your supplies, I have already selected some for you.


For filling, I used synthetic filling made of 100% polyester. However, there are numerous alternatives for filling material. If you’ve run out of filling, I’ve prepared a refill for you here.

Acrylic Paint

I used acrylic paint in the shade of pink here. This paint is non-toxic, water-dilutable, waterproof, and adheres to almost any surface. I found a great set of acrylic paints for you to try out here.

Safety Eyes

I used 2 safety eyes with a diameter of 1/4 inches. The eyes are completely black. However, there are countless alternatives for amigurumi eyes. You might prefer other safety eyes as well.


You’ll need any scissors. It’s best to use your most beautiful scissors because it brings you joy. If you don’t have really nice scissors, I’ve picked out some lovely ones for you.

Wool Needle

You’ll need a wool needle with a blunt tip. The thickness of the wool needle should match the thickness of your yarn. You might like the set of wool needles I’ve picked out for you.

Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi – Crochet Small Sun “Sunshine”

For the Amigurumi Sun we first crochet two parts for the center. Then crochet one border around the center, while crocheting both pieces together. If you want you can make a face for the Amigurumi sun and of course the crocheted sun will be filled and stuffed.

Crochet Sun Center (2x)

Crochet the center for the sun two times from inside to outside in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches (US!).

  • light yellow:
  • 1st round: magic ring + 6 single crochet stitches (US!) = 6 stitches
  • 2nd round: double every stitch = 12 stitches
  • 3rd round: double every 2nd stitch = 18 stitches
  • 4th round: double every 3rd stitch = 24 stitches
  • 5th round: double every 4th stitch = 30 stitches
  • 6th round: double every 5th stitch = 36 stitches
  • 7th round: each stitch one stitch = 36 stitches
  • beyond the end of the round: 1x 1 slip stitch into one stitch
  • Attach Safety Eyes, Position:
    • after the 3rd round
    • 8 stitches distance
  • cut the thread, pull off the loop

Crochet Sun Border

Now let’s crochet a border around the sun, which has the shape of sun rays. We crochet both parts together and of course the sun is still filled.

You start anywhere and always stitch into both loops of the front and back sides.

  • yellow:
  • 1 slip stitch + 1 lifting-chain stitch
  • repeat:
    • into every 1st stitch:
      • 1 half double crochet stitch (US!)
      • 1 double crochet stitch (US!)
      • 1 treble crochet stitch (US!)
      • 1 double treble crochet stitch (US!)
    • 2 chain stitches + 1 slip stitch in die 1st chain stitch
    • into every 2nd stitch:
      • 1 double treble crochet stitch (US!)
      • 1 treble crochet stitch (US!)
      • 1 double crochet stitch (US!)
      • 1 half double crochet stitch (US!)
    • into every 3rd stitch:
      • 1 single crochet stitch (US!)
  • cut the thread, pull off the loop, secure and weave in the thread end

You simply repeat the sun rays until the end of the round and continue to stitch into both loops of the front and back sides.

Shortly before the end of the round, the sun is completely filled and stuffed.

Then you just crochet until the border is completely closed.

Finish Amigurumi Sun

This way is your crocheted Amigurumi sun actually already finished. If you want you can still embroider a mouth with black darning yarn and paint a few cheeks with pink acrylic paint.

Ich wünsche dir einen sonnigen Tag!
