Studio Ghibli - Princess Mononoke amigurumi pattern

Princess Mononoke is a small crochet project for intermediate hook ninjas. You will practice how to crochet different Amigurumi shapes as well as how to add felt details to your creations. Additionally you will learn how to make different accessories for your plush toys.


Mononoke is a wild princess that appears as the main character in Hayaos Miyazaki's movie Princess Mononoke. It features the struggle of Mononoke, a young human inhabitant of the forest to protect it from the invasion of destruction that human greed causes. Mononoke rides a giant wolf who raised as her own daughter and interacts with many amazing characters through the whole movie. This is one of my favorite movies of all time, full of important messages about our place and role on earth.


You will need:

  • Worsted brown yarn
  • Worsted Red Yarn
  • Worsted Peach Yarn
  • Worsted Navy blue yarn
  • Worsted Dark gray
  • Black pressed felt
  • White pressed felt
  • 1 pair of Amigurumi eyes
  • Fiberfill stuffing


For this pattern I used a standard aluminum Clover hook of 4mm. Read my other article "Which crochet hook should I choose?" For more info about materials and differences between crochet hooks.
Please note that the bigger the hook, the bigger the holes between stitches in your Amigurumi.

This is a 3 Star pattern.
