Anger Amigurumi Doll Crochet Pattern

Tuesday, 1 June 2021

I made Sadness and Joy last year and I thought that I was just going to stop at those two because those were the only two that my 5-year-old had requested. I didn't really plan to make the rest of them.

Over the last few months, I have been getting some emails and messages here and there asking me if I would be making the rest of the Inside Out characters/emotions.

While I had no plans to do so, there were a few messages that made me rethink and change my mind. They were from teachers and parents of children who have autism.

People with autism struggle to identify and express emotions. They might also have difficulty displaying "proper" or "socially expected" emotions. Some may overcompensate and express an emotion in a very strong way, while others may be more reserved and never really show how they feel in a situation.

The movie Inside Out has helped parents and teachers teach and open up a conversation about emotions with their children with autism and demonstrate that all emotions have their place, even Anger.

The messages that I received were mostly requesting for me to create a crochet pattern for Anger as that might be one of the more difficult emotions for someone with autism.

After a weekend of contemplating, I impulsively decided, "Yeah, why not" and started experimenting. Today, I present to you my Anger amigurumi doll!

  1. Good evening, I just wanted to share a quick note with you, that I thought would be to long for a public post. But I just read you blog on developing a pattern for Anger from Inside Out. As I was making Sadness my 4 year old son instantly claimed her. Joy as well! My son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum in 2019 right at the beginning of the pandemic. He is predominant in Sensory Processing Disorder and some Speech issues. However, these past 2 week we have been working on "naming our emotions" so that we can better regulate how we feel. And as I said, while making Sadness I thought maybe this would be good for him if I made all the emotions so that he can better express his feelings or help regulate his meltdowns. Low and behold you were already a step ahead of me. So I say, thank you. Thank you for considering the emails and messages and taking time to develop these wonderful patterns. From a mother and advocate for my son with this disability, thank you for making these patterns!
