Pattern Details


Frankie measures 10” long when completed with worsted weight yarn.

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


Frankie is a beginner level pattern, but to crochet those claws you'll need to know how to crochet standing legs - best tackled if you've already made one or two amigurumi.

  • single crochet
  • increase
  • decrease
  • attaching parts with whipstitch
  • crochet standing legs (for the claws)

Don't worry - the PDF pattern has links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need! And it contains progress photos of all the important steps, so you won’t get lost. :-)

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. :-)
