Monroe the Wolpertinger | Free Crochet Pattern

This free crochet pattern is for a wolpertinger amigurumi. A wolpertinger is a rabbit with antlers, wings, and fangs, commonly associated with Bavarian traditions and Oktoberfest.

I feel like I should preface this with “There’s no such thing as a wolpertinger!”

A wolpertinger is a Bavarian folk-creature similar in many ways to the US native Snipe. Snipe are a fictional character invented as a far-reaching practical joke to get tourists or gullible kids to “hunt” for a snipe that, of course, they will never see, much less catch.

Similarly, the wolpertinger is a creature invented by Bavarian taxidermy artists by making a mish-mash of a few different animals, usually a rabbit (or squirrel) with antlers, feathered wings, and big scary fangs. These were then displayed in pubs and tourist gift shops to used to fool tourists into hunting for a wolpertinger, or better yet, buying a stuffed one for the mantle back home to tell their friends about the “strange creatures” in Bavarian.

Now, they are the mythical creature mascot for Oktoberfest or Brewfest. They say you can only see a wolpertinger in the wild if you are drunk… an excellent ploy to sell more beer to those gullible tourists!

I love this creature. I love any mish-mash, chimera-like creatures because they allow for so much creativity in the process.

Don’t like antlers? Leave them off! Put on a second set of ears!

Maybe he needs an second set of wings too!

Anything goes!

I also like this pattern because it makes a great simple rabbit when you leave off the wolpertinger parts. A downright adorable Easter friend!

Construction

Monroe is a far easier amigurumi than the other “advanced” amigurumi, but I had to mark him “advanced” because of the short rounds and branching used in several of his parts. But the easy part is that he is completely done in single crochets (no bobbles or crazy loop sts), and most of his parts have a simple, classic attachment.

Monroe’s head and body are one piece, worked from the top down, with a little bit of sculpting around the eyes.

I walk through the sculpting and all of the attachments in depth in the Premium Pattern. This pattern has 56 extra tutorial photos to make all those dreaded attachments seem easy peasy! I also walk through the branching steps to create his fun, cartoony wings and those awesome antlers.

As with all the advanced patterns, it is really worth purchasing the Premium Pattern to make your creation experience fun rather than frustrating. Position everything right the first time, frog less, and enjoy the pattern more!

This pattern is also available as a Premium Pattern! Premium Patterns are ad-free, printable .pdf files, professionally formatted and edited, often with extra tutorial photos not available in the free version.

Premium Patterns are available in the Hooked by Kati Shop, Ravelry, and Etsy.

  • Rounds labeled “Short round” are worked back and forth and will end before the round is complete, leaving stitches deliberately unworked to be worked in later rounds as instructed.
  • When instructed, additional sc will be added at the end of a round to move the starting stitch of the next round to the left. These sts do not change the st count of the round.

Pattern Stitches

Cut yarn. Thread needle through front loops of remaining 6 sts. Pull tightly to close. Weave in ends.

Sculpting Eyes

With pins, mark the outside of each eye at Rnd 18, halfway down the eye, as close to the safety eye as possible. (Marked Sts 1 and 2) Mark the the inside of each eye at Rnd 18, in line with the outside marked sts, as close to the safety eye as possible. (Marked Sts 3 and 4)

With a needle, thread a long strand of TERR in any stitch on the face, out through Marked St 1, in through the st directly below, out through Marked St 2, in through the st directly below, out through Marked St 3, in through the sts directly below, out through Marked St 4, in through the st directly below, out through the original starting point.

This will leave two tails coming from the same hole.

Hold both tails and pull, gently but firmly, to pull the eyes closer together at both the outside and the inside of the safety eye.

Pull them together until the safety eyes face out to either side rather than straight ahead.

Tie the two ends together and thread the yarn back through the same st to hide the knot. Weave in ends.

Cut yarn. Thread needle through front loops of remaining 6 sts. Pull tightly to close. Leave long tail for sewing.

Press thigh flat. Thigh will have slight curve to it when stuffed properly.

Hold legs to each side of the body, feet facing forward, letting the curve of the thigh wrap over the bottom section of the body. Top of thigh should be at Rnd 43 (waist). When the body is sitting up, the straight bottom line of the hind legs should sit flat on the table.

Feet should stick out in front of body, without touching the body. Thigh should overlap the chest piece by two stitches in the front. (As shown in Premium Pattern photos)

Use pins to mark where the thigh touches body. Mark the same place on the thigh.

Tip: Use colored pins so you can match the colored pins on the body to those on the thigh for easier attachment.

Repeat marking the body and thigh on the other side, doing your best to mirror the position of the first thigh.

Using pins as a guide, sew hind legs to body with the sewing tail from the legs.

      Thank you so much! This guy was heavily inspired by the wolpertinger in World of Warcraft, and by these bunny sculptures my grandmother has. They are sitting up just like Monroe and are just so cute, they always stuck out in my mind as the quintescential rabbit. I’m so glad you are enjoying him!

    Wow! It’s incredible! Next, you should try making a pattern for the 3 headed dog, Ceberus, from Greek mythololgy. I’ve been trying to find a good one, and I think you would do an awesome job designing one! Again, you’re so amazing at crochet.
