Mini Amigurumi Wishing Star Crochet Pattern

| Original: January 05, 2024

Disney brought their iconic wishing star to life in their latest animated film, Wish. Knowing that we were going to Disneyland at the end of November, just shortly after the movie's release, we made an effort to watch it just before heading to Los Angeles.

We found ourselves captivated by the whimsical charm of the wishing star from the movie. Star doesn't have any dialogue throughout the film, but instead uses a ball of red yarn to craft costumes to communicate its thoughts. As soon as I saw the yarn, I knew Star and I spoke the same language.

With Mui Mui's enthusiasm, she wanted to bring home the largest wishing star plush toy. She was lucky I was feeling generous that day.

We then brought home a few more Wishing Star souvenirs from the park including the light-up sipper and a smaller plush toy, which has also been claimed by Mui Mui since we returned from our trip.

Feeling inspired by the magic of our Disneyland vacation, I decided to make a miniature crochet version of the beloved Star once I had access to my yarn again.

Like some of my other mini amigurumi crochet patterns, this miniature amigurumi wishing star is small enough to make into a crochet keychain.

This miniature crochet Wishing Star is mostly crafted with one piece using bobble stitches for its star spikes and then the face is sewn on separately. I hope this crochet tutorial will inspire you to make your own amigurumi wishing star.

  • I made this amigurumi doll using the "Yarn Under Single Crochet" technique. This technique makes the stitches tighter and appears more aligned.
  • Crochet in continuous rounds. Do not join at the end of each round. Use a running stitch marker to keep your place when crocheting in rounds.
  • Use invisible decreases when making single crochet decreases for a nicer finish.
  • There are many stitches in the magic ring to make the heart face. Use a double magic ring for a more secure hold.
