  This pattern can either be knitted when making the hat or duplicate stitched on afterwards; the choice is yours. (I duplicate stitch mine. It's really simple to do.)

  Just a few days ago I finish knitting this Bowser Beanie for my son. It was my second knitting project, I think it looks amazing. One of my nephews saw my son's Bowser beanie and ask me to make him a beanie but with Frog Mario from Super Mario Bros. 3. I decide to create a pattern for it since I found none and well here it is for you to make. (Note: I made the pattern today. I still haven't made the beanie so theirs no picture but once I finish it I would uploaded here. Picture up.)

BRAIDS
Cut 18 pieces of yarn (9 for each earflap) about 30 inches long. Fold each bunch in half and push the folded end through an opening in the bottom of each earflap. Pull the unfolded ends through the loop and pull tight. Braid the strands and tie a knot to secure the braid. Complete the second braid the same way.


ASSEMBLY
  I highly recommend pinning all the pieces together before sewing anything to make sure you have all the pieces done right and that you get them in the positions you like best before sewing. It seems like alot of extra work, but this will save you ALOT of hassle.
  Sew the white part of the eye to the green one. Black circle is cut out of felt and its glue on or sewn in place. Place the eyes on top of the beanie. Space them 3" apart from each other.

Bowser amigurumi

Pin It

This particular Bowser is modeled off of the more recent version of Bowser (Super Mario Bros. Wii)
  My son been asking me to make him Bowser. Plus I had to make him since he's the main evil guy in the Mario Bros. series. I had been searching for him for months and found some amazing Bowser’s but no patterns for them. I was going to try to make him myself but I found two patterns for him in Ravelry. I decided to make Shelly Hedko's pattern since it look way better. She did an amazing job designing it.
  Assembling the pieces together was a bit complicate it since theirs so many pieces to keep track of. She doesn't go into much detail on how to assemble him. (At the moment though, she's  making another Bowser so she can take pictures of it as she assembles him and put then in her blog.) But since I been making amigurumis since I started crocheting; I eventually figure it out. I did modify the pattern a bit since some pieces (body and belly) I found them to be too small but overall it's amazing pattern. If you been looking for a Bowser pattern this is the one to make. Here's the link to it.
  I just love how he turn out. My son absolutely loves him, he's his new favorite stuff toy.
