You want a porg?? Make your own!

Man. If there’s one thing I’ve learned since my last blog post, it’s that y’all really, REALLY like porgs. They weren’t my favorite, but I didn’t hate them either, so I made one since so many people suggested it for Comic-Con. And holy hell did that open a can of worms. My top-liked post on Instagram EVER was when I posted up this little Christmas porg over the weekend.

At any rate, you want a porg? You got it. But you gotta make it yourself. BEHOLD! THE SACRED PORG PATTERN! For the low, low, price of free fiddy. You can find it HERE. Make all the porgs so I don’t have to! Have fun, and don’t forget to tag me if you post photos of your work! Happy hooking everyone!

EDIT 1/5/2018:

Since I’ve had several people ask (and thank you to everyone who gave me that courtesy!): I don’t mind if you sell finished products from the pattern as long as you credit back for the design, either by tagging me in your social media posts or linking back to the pattern directly! Please do not sell or reproduce the pattern itself. Happy hooking!

    1. I just pick whatever’s cheap and the right color! I think the light brown yarn I used was some sort of cheapo Red Heart yarn, everything else was probably either Loops & Threads or Vanna’s Choice.

      1. Thanks! I had some Vanna’s Choice lying around that was the right color and it worked, but…how the heck do you manage the color changes? Do you carry the color or cut the yarn each time?

      2. I’d say that’s completely based on preference! I do a little of both depending on how long I’d have to carry the color around until I use it again. Just a note that you can cut the wheat colored yarn after you finish Round 8, because it’s no longer in use from that point on!

  1. Hi, I love this porg so much but I’ve tried twice and the white keeps veering to the left. This doesn’t include the times I ripped it out. Can anyone offer any assistance?

    1. Hi there! Not sure if this applies to what you’re doing, but the rounds should be done in a continuous spiral…I think I’ve seen some people say that if when they do individual rounds (ending with a ch or sl st) it tends to lean a bit. I should’ve specified that in the pattern, so I’ll add a clarification to the ravelry page! Hope that helps!

    2. I do think there might be something off with one of the rows toward the end of the white. I had to ignore the pattern and stitch how I thought it should look.

      1. Ah yeah, I’ve had to look into this because many other people were having the same problem. I’ve found that if you cut-and-tie at those portions it’ll also decrease the amount of slanting that happens! A slight lean is normal because of the spiral formation, but the heavy slant seems to happen more if you carry the yarn through. Hope that helps, let me know if the FLO method works! I’ve never tried it myself. 🙂

    1. Hi there! I don’t really have a specific yarn that I use, but almost all of my yarn is worsted weight (also labeled as “medium” or size 4) acrylic yarn. Most of the stuff I buy is just whatever’s cheap and in the right color! Lots of Vanna’s Choice, Loops & Threads, and Red Heart yarns for me.

  2. I’m trying to follow your pattern but the colors don’t look like they’re lining up right (or I can’t count 😀 ). Can you explain how to switch colors with your pattern. For example: SC 6, switch to wheat, SC 4. Is the switch included in the first 6 or the next 4? THANKS!

    1. Hi there! In the sequence you’ve mentioned, you should be starting the 6th sc stitch in the first color, but when you do your final yarn over to complete the stitch you use your wheat colored yarn. This will make a clean color change to the wheat colored yarn, where you’ll sc 4 in wheat until you reach the next color change. There’s a great tutorial at PlanetJune.com for this: https://www.planetjune.com/blog/amigurumi-help/changing-colour/

      Hope that helps!

  3. I’ve never done amigurimi before, and I had only crocheted a handful of small projects years ago. I saw your little porg and I just HAD to try. It took me three tries, but I finally got a little one. It’s not nearly as good as yours, but I’m proud of it. I just wanted to say you inspired me getting into this hobby! I love amigurumi!

    1. Ahhh this is so heartwarming to hear! Funny enough, I’m the other way around, I’ve only ever made amigurumi, but I’ve never crocheted a granny square in my life! 🙂

  4. First thank you for sharing the pattern. I have a quick question about the wing. When you turn do you do 3 hdc in each stich??

  5. Hello!
    I love this pattern so much, the final results are just so darn cute! I am currently making a pastel version for a friend, but I am having some trouble on the feet. In the brackets, after you turn, it says to sc one, where do you sc? And does sl st in same stitch as before mean the first chain st that was made?

    1. You sc in the second chain from the hook! And yep, sl st in the same stitch before means the first chain (the one before the brackets are written). Thanks for the feedback, it lets me know how I can write these better! 🙂

  6. Hi! I love your Porg! Thank you for making it free! I want to make one for my son. A quick question. How big do you think it would be using a J hook? Wanting to up-size it a bit. I crochet fairly tightly. Thanks again.

  7. Hi! love the Porg! I am having issues with making the feet of all things. When you ch 2, turn, sc 1
    where am I sc 1? it doesn’t really say where to place the sc. I get a balled up mess.

  8. My son and I are working on these together and we are new at this so thanks for your patience! When switching colors, what do you find works best? We have been just leaving them attached and have all these drapy string pieces inside. Is there something that works better?

      1. Here is one I made out of my stash.  He’s a little hairy, since the only light brown I had was alpaca.

  9. I just crocheted this up, and oh my goodness, did I mess it up!! hahaha! I’m calling mine Derp…. and I posted it to instagram, but I did tag you… Wait til you see… it’s sooo funky lookin lol

  10. I am new at crocheting, and I just can’t decipher these directions. Anyone have any video tutorials to recommend? I learned the magic chain, but I don’t know what to do for step 2.

  11. Hi it’s so cute I’m going to make one for my son for Christmas, is there any chance of getting the Christmas hat pattern as that is so cute too.

  12. Michelle Rodriguez

    Do you happen to have a video tutorial for this project? I would love to see how you handled the color changes for him

  13. Any chance you have the pattern for the hat as well!! My kids love that part and Christmas and Star Wars go together!
