FREE Amigurumi Pattern: Gus Gus from Disney's Cinderella

Hey everyone!

I'm back with another free pattern! This one is for Gus from Cinderella. I designed this little guy for my mom as a Mother's Day present, and I'm really happy with how he turned out!

He's also holding a little piece of cheese because we all know that Gus LOVES his food!


Cinderella is my mom's favorite Disney movie, but to be honest I'm not the biggest Cinderella fan. I think that's because I grew up during the Disney Renaissance (1989-1999) so movies like the Lion King and Mulan were my go-tos as a kid. Have you seen the live action Cinderella with Lily James? I actually thought that one was really well done, you should give it a try if you haven't watched it already! Also, shout-out to Kala, who in my opinion is one of the best Disney moms out there. And if you're sitting there wondering "Kala who?" then click here (as you can see I feel very strongly about how underrated this movie is haha).


This pattern is a little more complicated than the narwhal pattern but Gus is still primarily ade of single crochets. For the ears, you will need to know single crochet in the front loop only (FLO) and back loop only (BLO). If you are unfamiliar with these terms I'm not going to go into detailed instructions here but there are plenty of resources on Google and Youtube you can check out (it's very simple I promise!).


Since Gus is a Disney trademarked character I won't be making a paid PDF version of this pattern, but I think I've taken enough photos of the work-in-progress for you to follow along! If you get stuck or something is unclear, feel free to send me an email or message on instagram and I'll try my best to help you.


So here's the pattern!

R6) (sc in next 2 sts, 1 dec) x 2 [6]

R7) sc in all 6 sts [6]

You can lightly fill with polyester stuffing if you want but I didn't find it necessary. Fasten off and close by looping the yarn through each of the sts from Round 7 and pulling tight. Leave a long tail for sewing. Don't cut any ends yet, as this will actually end up being your tail as well!


Sew pieces to the body as shown. For the ears and feet, bring the tail end through the last round you just closed up and out through the area you want to sew. For the tuft of hair, I also sewed the tip of the hair to the head so that it lays flat. Tip: for the ears, bring the tail out close to the colour change so it's hidden better.



Cheese

In light yellow

R1) Ch 6 [6]

R2) Turn, starting from the 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 4 chs; 3 sc in next ch; sc in next 3 chs (you'll now be working into the other side of the ch). inc in next ch. [12]

R3) sc in all 12 sts [12]

R4) (sc in next 4 sts, 1 dec) [10]

R5) (sc in next 3 sts, 1 dec) [8]

R6 (sc in next 2 sts, 1 dec) [6]

You can lightly fill with polyester stuffing if you want but I didn't find it necessary. Fasten off and close by looping the yarn through each of the sts from Round 7 and pulling tight. Leave a long tail for sewing.


As with the feet and ears, bring the tail end through the last round you just closed up and out through the area you want to sew to attach the cheese to both arms. Sew the cheese to the arms by looping the yarn around a single st in the arm and bringing the yarn back into the cheese at the same point. You can also sew the cheese to the body to keep it secure in place.


To make the tail, bring one of the tail ends that was used to sew the feet out through the body where you want the tail to be. Cut the tail to the length you want and tie a knot at the very end. The knot is to ensure that the tail doesn't fray.

And there you have it! I hope you enjoy making your own Gus, and please tag me on instagram (@yurigurumi) so I can see your work!


Until next time, and happy crocheting!
