Korok Child *Free* Crochet Pattern


At the beginning of the summer, we invested in the new Nintendo switch video game console. Of course that means we also got our hands on the Zelda: Breath Of The Wild game. I played the game for a while, and then I became “the girl in the chair” to walk my husband through the game. All three of the kids got invested in the story line. After my husband beat the game the first time, we decided…or rather I decided, that he should play through again but differently. So this time, the first focus was to find these cute little tree people that are hidden all over the place. They are called Korok children, and when you find them they give you Korok seeds that you can then exchange to expand your inventories.

Naturally, I just had to crochet some korok seeds and a korok Child for my children to play with. They’ve had the best time with these relatively simple little toys, and you guys are also in luck! Because I wrote down my pattern process, took pictures along the way, and am now sharing the pattern with you for *FREE* I hope you guys enjoy this one, and share your pictures with me, I’d LOVE to feature some of your beautiful artwork (just send them to familybugs@gmail.com).

If you’d like to download the PDF to print off and keep, you will have to go to my etsy store and purchase it…I know, I know, but I’ve gotta make a living somehow!

MATERIALS NEEDED

• Hook size E/4-3.50MM

• Worsted weight yarn in desired colors – whatever color or combination of colors you would like. I used a light brown and tan color for the body and limbs, and manually changed at random intervals. A variegated yarn might be easier, or just using a solid color will work as well. I have not written in the color changes. And then a light green and medium green for the leafy face mask.

• Black felt – just a tiny bit for the face details

• Safety eyes

• Stuffing – polyfil or other
