Buckbeak the Hippogriff Amigurumi

Pattern by Bandotaku
You will need:
-F hook (main body), G hook (wings)
-Light gray yarn (head, wings, and upper body)
-Medium gray yarn (lower body and back legs)
-Dark gray yarn (front legs, beak, wing tips)
-Black yarn (hooves, tail)
-White or cream yarn OPTIONAL (for chest and upper-front-legs. It's m ore difficult to do, but it looks very pretty.)
-plastic safety eyes, approx. 12 mm. (felt or  button eyes would also work)
-Stuffing

Feel free to choose colors other than what I have directed. How about a brown hippogriff? A black one? Multi-colored?


Please make as many cute little hippogriffs as you'd like for you or your friends or sell them locally, but please do not sell them online.

The toe design I tweaked from this pattern sarselgurumi.blogspot.com/2011…
The wings I borrowed from the same website, which was borrowed from a different source. :)
Because this is a free pattern, it has not been officially tested and was written as I was crocheting (though I have gotten positive feedback from those who have tried it). Not every row has an exact number count: the overall shape matters more than your row count. Have fun!

Head
With F hook and light gray yarn
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook
R2: Inc 1 in each sc around (12)
R3: *Sc1, inc 1* ;repeat around  (18)

R17: Sc 6, in 1, sc 1, inc 1, sc 5, dec 1, sc 5, inc,1, sc1, inc1, sc around rest of row

R21: *Sc 3, dec 1* repeat around
R22: sc around
R23: *Sc 2, dec, 1* repeat around
Finish off, leave long tail for sewing (head should be left open). Attach safety eyes and stuff.


Beak:
With dark gray yarn:
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook
R2:  *sc 1, inc 1* repeat (9)
R3: *sc 2, in 1* repeat around (12)
R4: *sc 3, inc 1* repeat around (15)
R5:  *sc 4, inc 1* repeat around (18)
Finish off. Leave tail for sewing and attach to the head.

Body
With medium gray yarn
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook
R2: Inc 1 in each sc around (12)
R3: *Sc1, inc 1* ;repeat around  (18)
R4: *Sc 2, inc 1* repeat around (24)
R5: *Sc 3, inc 1* repeat around (30)
R6: *Sc 4, inc 1* repeat around (36)
R7-8: Sc around (36)
R9: Sc 12, dec 1, sc 1, dec 1, sc 1, dec 1, sc 1, sc around rest of row (33)
R10: Sc around (33)
R11: Sc 12, dec 1, sc 1, dec 1, sc 1, dec 1, scaround rest of row
R12: sc around (Optional chest, change to white for the last two stitches. As you countinue around for the next rows, give the white about 5-6 sc before changing back to gray, to create a spot on the chest. Be prepared to weave in a lot of ends as you go.)
R13: *Sc 6, dec* repeat around
R14: Sc around
R15: *sc 6, dec 1* repeat around (if you're doing the white chest, finish this row, change to white as usual, and when you finish the white into the next row, change to same light gray as used for head. If not, then change to the light gray at the start of your next row.)
R16-18: sc around (24)
R19: *sc 6, dec 1* repeat around
R20-22: sc around
Finish off. Leave tail. Stuff the body and attach the head.

Ears (make 2)
(I used two strands of yarn for the ears. It's not necessary, but it gives the ears some stiffness so they stand up and hold their shape. If you use two strands, this is the only time you'll need to switch to a G hook. If only one strand, continue with F hook.) With same yarn as head.
R1: Ch 7, turn
R2: sc 6, ch 1, turn
R3: sc 4, ch 1, turn
R4: sc 4, ch1, turn
R5: sc 2, ch 1, turn
R6: sc2
Finish off. Leave tail for sewing; stuff and sew onto head.
Back Haunches (make 2)
With medium gray yarn used for lower body
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook
R2: inc around (12)
R3: *sc 1, inc 1* (18)
R4: *sc 2, inc 2* (24)
Finish off, leave tail for sewing; stuff very lightly, sew onto lower body.

Back Legs (make 2)
With black yarn
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook
R2: inc around (12)
R3: sc around, back loops only
R4: sc around
R5: Change to medium gray used for lower body. *inc 1, sc 1* repeat around (16)
R6: *sc 1, dec 1* (12)
R7-11: Sc around
R12: *sc 3, inc 1* repeat around
Finish off. Leave tail for sewing, stuff, and sew to hanches, flat to the ground. See picture.

Front legs (make 2)
With dark gray yarn, leave a tail for later.
R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook
R2: inc around (12)
R3: *sc 3, in 1* repeat around (16)
R4: (here you will make the toes) sc 2 in back loops only, HDC 4 in next sc, repeat until you have 3 toes. Sc in BLO remaining stiches.
R5-13: sc around (12) (the yarn I used for the legs was thin, it may be less rows or more. Just use your best judgement and stop when it looks long enough.)
R14: Change to white. *sc 3, inc 1* repeat around (16)
R15: Sc around
R16: *sc 2, dec 1*
Finish off, leave tail for sewing. Take tail by the feet and bring it around through the feet to sew the toes together (they'll have a gap). Then sew legs to body.

Wings (make 2)
(This pattern is not my own, and the color on the wing tips is not quite perfected. You can try it if you like, but this pattern will give you a simple, solid-color wing.)
ch 6, work sc in 2nd ch from hook and the one after it, sc 3 in next ch, sc 1 in each of the next 2 chs; ch1 and turn (7 sc)
sc in first 3 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts; ch1 and turn (9 sc)
sc in first 4 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts; ch4 and turn (11 sc)
sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 2 chs, sc in next 5 sts, 3sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, 3 foundation sc; (19 sc)
ch 1, and turn
sc in next 9 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 9 sts; fasten off (21 sc)

Sew wings to back
Here's the pattern for my Buckbeak Amigurumi.

Please let me know if you make one. I'd LOVE to see it! This is my first pattern I've ever made, it has not really been tested, so there may be errors. I don't mind if you choose to sell the plush, I just ask that you link back to the pattern.

Here's the finished project. bandotaku.deviantart.com/art/B…

Edit: Thank you to everyone who has given me positive feedback on this pattern! Here are a few finished products from people. :) They turned out so beautifully!

So excited! Gonna make a small army of these for my Christmas tree (doing a HP theme) and one for my sister! Thank you so much for allowing us to use your pattern
To make sure I'm understanding, though, is the G-hook only for the wings?

MilesofCrochet Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes, G-hook was just for wings. ...Though, it's been so many years, I'm not sure why... Feel free to try it with the F and see what happens!

And PLEASE share pictures of your Harry Potter Christmas tree!!!

Just started making one when the doctor called and said my mother is pretty sick...having elevated white blood cells and being severely anemic being just two of the things that were named. I decided to change my plan (black, grey and red) to one fitting my mother's favorite colors (Pink&Purple with black details). A handmade plushy always makes her feel better, even if it's just a bit better. Turns out I stumbled upon it when I really needed it. Thank you.:) (Smile)

It makes me very glad to hear that I could help in such a tiny way. I'm sure your mom will absolutely love getting such a loving, handmade gift. My prayers go out to you and her. Do post the plush when you finish it! :)

Hi Bandotaku,first thanks for the pattern. I'm doing the hippogriff but i have a problem with round 5 of front legs. Should i do the sc in toes too?
Reply
:iconmilesofcrochet:
MilesofCrochet Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hi there! No, you do not need to sc in the toes, you want the toes to jut out form the leg. I think you might have room for 1 sc between each toe, I'm sorry I'm not certain, it's been years since I have actually used this pattern! The important thing is that you have distinct toes and that your leg has 12 stitches. Hope that helps a little!

Thank you so much for this pattern!

In the pattern, you ask that hippogriffs made from your pattern should not be sold. But in the description, it says we are allowed to sell them locally. I wanted to double check if it is ok to sell them locally?

MilesofCrochet Featured By Owner May 20, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah! I just don't want them sold online. But selling to friends or in a craft show is fine with me. :)
If you make one, I would love to know how it went!

Do you close the head or leave it open?

MilesofCrochet Featured By Owner May 1, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Leave open. You'll attach the open body and open head together. If you make one, I would love to see how it went! :)

Should I put a tail on him/her? Because on the book it has a tail but not in the movie

I was sure the movie gave it a horse tail. Maybe it just wasn't shown? Oh well... It's up to you! I like tails, though.

I am currently making one as we speak! I got the head and beak done (I sewed the beak on already) and am starting my body. Thanks so much! I'll link when done! Not too long ago I made a duck, I named him Ivan the Russian duck! He has a scarf and he's so cute!
