Stuart the Clam Puppet Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

Skill Builder!


- +

Not only is Stuart an adorable clam… he’s a puppet!

This amigurumi is constructed so that you can stick your hand in his shell, and even move around his eyes!

If you aren’t interested in a puppet, simply stuff him, and stitch him closed in the back.

This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly. No shipping costs and no waiting! (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)

Pattern Details


Stuart is 4 inches wide and 2 inches tall when made with worsted weight yarn.

Want a bigger or smaller clam? Use thicker or thinner yarn and a larger or smaller hook!


This is an easy pattern, but the puppet assembly is likely to be new to most stitchers. 

Skills required:

  • single crochet
  • increasing
  • decreasing
  • attaching parts

The pattern contains step-by-step photographs, and you'll find videos at Shiny Happy World teaching all the skills you'll need. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing it right. :-)

Materials Needed

You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.

You'll need. . .

  • 3 colors of yarn - less than a skein of each. (The sample uses tan, pink and black.)
  • Size H crochet hook (or size appropriate for yarn chosen)
  • Polyester stuffing
  • 12 mm black safety eyes
  • Tapestry needle
  • Locking stitch markers

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

For example, if you're using this pattern to make items which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

Talk to Me

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

For example, if you want to hire someone to help you crochet, or to do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)
