Now you can crochet your own Sam — the boy with the burlap sack and the orange footie pajamas.
If you learn one thing, it should be to never extinguish a Jack O’ Lantern before midnight on Halloween. The movie Trick-Or-Treat teaches you all about it.
You know what else it teaches you? There is a Sam. It introduces us to Sam — the link between everything scary and the enforcer of all things Halloween.
Seriously, I may never sleep with the lights off again (did I mention I’m a bit of a chicken?). I can’t take anything scary!
Just the sight of this Sam Amigurumi Doll Pattern makes me cringe just a little bit — but he’s too cute to be totally scary.
Not sure if you can tackle a Sam Crocheted Doll? He is going to be simple as pie for anyone who knows basic crochet and how to stitch the pieces together.
This pattern is written in American terms:Etsy

When Sam is finished, he is about 19 centimeters tall (that’s 7.5 inches for all us in America).
Wouldn’t he fit PERFECTLY in a Christmas stocking?!?
There are quite a few supplies that you want to make sure you have before you start this Sam. Now, don’t get overwhelmed by this list. Just take it one at a time.
You will need the yarn of your choice. BlueRabbitToys used Alize Cotton Gold (100g/330m) and YarnArt Jeans in order to complete their Sam, but you can use whatever you like.
Of course, you need a crochet hook. The example used a 1.9 mm metal hook, but they suggest using whatever works best for you. Keep in mind that hook size is going to affect the size of the finished product.
Get a bag of stuffing, a yarn needle, scissors, and pins. Those are all pretty standard, and can be picked up at your local fabric store (or even Walmart).
You need to get some button eyes — I think the cutest are the ones with the 4 holes. You also need black embroidery thread and twine to tie the “burlap sack” on Sam’s head.
It is important to note that what you are paying for is a PATTERN — it is NOT a completed project.
The pattern runs $4.60, and can be used over and over again. It is a downloadable PDF that you will get as soon as your payment clears.
You can get your own Sam Amigurumi Doll Pattern from the BlueRabbitToys shop on Etsy.
