LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
Suitable for intermediate-level crocheters who are confident reading crochet patterns. Some fiddliness.
Using the specified hook and yarn, your Frida will measure about 30cm (12in) from feet to tips of ears.
THINGS YOU'LL NEED
* A 2.5mm (B/1 or C/2) hook
* Yarn: I used Scheepjes Catona yarn (4ply, 100% mercerised cotton) as follows:
- One 50g (125m) ball each of 502 (Camel) and 114 (Shocking Pink).
- One 25g (62m) ball each of 110 (Black), 514 (Jade) and 115 (Hot Red)
- One 10g (25m) ball each of 208 (Yellow Gold), 2810 (Tangerine), 521 (Deep Violet) and 105 (Bridal White.
- Plus a small amount of yellow embroidery floss.
You can substitute any weight yarn and the appropriate size hook. Be aware that your finished size and yardage may differ.
* 9mm safety eyes
* Notions: scissors, tapestry needle, stitch marker.
* Polyester stuffing.
* Thin plastic or card to stabilise the feet.
* Wire (optional): I used 1.6mm (14 gauge) tie wire from a building supply shop but you could use heavy-duty florist wire.
METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION
Your Frida is crocheted primarily in the amigurumi method, i.e. in a continuous spiral, rather than by joining each round. Her body and head are worked in one piece, then her limbs, ears and adornments are sewn on afterwards.
The wheelchair that features in this pattern was designed by Sharon Ojala of Amigurumi To Go (www.amigurumitogo.com). You can find the pattern free on her website. The modifications I made to Sharon's design are included in this pattern.

I really enjoyed this pattern especially for my first time crocheting amigurumi and it turned out so cute even tho I'm sure I made some mistakes
Love how it turned out! Instructions are a little confusing the way they’re written, took me a couple times of playing with it to get it right. I used too thick of yarn for my mushroom, so the middle kinda pops out rather than laying flat
This pattern is awesome! I haven't crocheted in a while so I struggled a bit with the square but the youtube video for it and now it's going fine. Looking forward to making this with a load of different colours from my stash! The instructions for changing the cats look pretty straightforward too. Thank you :)
I love the cat pillow!! The instructions are easy to follow and the pictures make it clear.
