Kuchi Kopi – Free Crochet Pattern

I’ve been hard at work these last few months on items for our upcoming Comic Con. A friend of mine asked if I would be interested in sharing a booth so of course I couldn’t resist an excuse to crochet all the fabulous, nerdy things I possibly could. My friend does some amazing aprons for dress-up and imaginative play with princesses and heroes galore so of course I will have some pieces to complement those. But I also wanted to have pieces for things I would love to see at Comic Con thus this pattern was born.

In case you missed the memo, our family loves geeky things. One of those geeky things is Bob’s Burgers. What adult doesn’t love Bob’s Burgers? If you don’t know because you either avoid adult-driven cartoons or just haven’t happened across it Bob’s Burgers is about a quirky family who own and run a burger restaurant near the coast. And when I say quirky, I mean entirely relatable and hilarious in every way. Thus, we love this show. There are always all kinds of random things throughout the episodes and you never know when a previously one off comment or item in the background can become the premise for an entire episode.

Thus where this pattern comes in. If you don’t know who this is his name is Kuchi Kopi. If you love dorky things with deliciously in-world nerdy backstories you need to check this episode out. Seriously. I will wait.

Ok so needless to say I had to make a couple Kuchi Kopis for our Comic Con booth, and he turned out so cute and easy I just had to share my pattern with you! So without further ado, my Kuchi Kopi pattern.

Body (In Green)
Row 1: Create a magic circle, CH 1 and SC 6 into the circle then pull tight. You may also use a CH 2 and 6 SC into the first chain then pull tight. Do not join. (6)
Row 2: INC 6 times (12)
Row 3: *INC, SC* 6 times (18)
Row 4: *INC, SC 2* 6 times (24)
Row 5: *INC, SC 3* 6 times (30)
Row 6: *INC, SC 4* 6 times (36)
Row 7-12: SC 36 (36)
Row 13: *DEC, SC 4* 6 times (30)
Row 14: *DEC, SC 3* 6 times (24)
Row 15: SC 24 (24)
Row 16: *INC, SC 3* 6 times (30)
Begin stuffing the head section with fiberfill now.
Row 17: *INC, SC 4* 6 times (36)
Row 18: *INC, SC 5* 6 times (42)
Row 19-26: SC 42 (42)
Row 27: *DEC, SC 5* 6 times (36)
Row 28: SC 36 (36)
Row 29: *DEC, SC 4* 6 times (30)
Row 30: SC 30 (30)
Row 31: *DEC, SC 3* 6 times (24)
Row 32: *DEC, SC 2* 6 times (18)
Begin stuffing the rest of the body with fiberfill now.
Row 33: *DEC, SC* 6 times (12)
Row 34: DEC 6 times (6)
Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing. Finish stuffing with fiberfill and using a whipstitch close the hole and weave in your ends. You can also opt to stuff the very bottom with some dried beans to give the piece some weight to sit better on a surface. I used about a quarter cup of dried kidney beans and stuffed them in after I had the shape of the body stuffed as desired then closed the hole as normal.

Ears (Make 2 in Green)
Row 1: Create a magic circle, CH 1 and SC 4 into the circle then pull tight. You may also use a CH 2 and 4 SC into the first chain then pull tight. Do not join. (4)
Row 2: *INC, SC* 2 times (6)
SLST into the next stitch and finish off the piece leaving a long tail for sewing.

Eyes (Make 2 in White)
Row 1: Create a magic circle, CH 2 and 8 HDC into the circle then pull tight. You may also use a CH 3 and 8 HDC into the first chain then pull tight. Join with a SLST in the first HDC and finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.
Taking a bit of Black yarn create the pupil. I threaded a small bit through the front then tied the yarn behind it before sewing on to avoid weaving in any more ends.

Arms (Make 2 in Green)
Row 1: Create a magic circle, CH 1 and SC 6 into the circle then pull tight. You may also use a CH 2 and 6 SC into the first chain then pull tight. Do not join. (6)
Row 2: *INC, SC 2* 2 times (8)
Row 3: SC 8 (8)
Row 4: *DEC, SC 2* 2 times (6)
SLST into the next stitch and finish off the piece leaving a long tail for sewing. You could sew the top of the arm together or just sew it onto the piece through both sides at the same time.

Bow (In Turquoise)
CH 39, DC in the 5th CH from the hook, HDC, SLST, HDC, DC, CH 3 and SLST to the same CH you placed the last stitch and finish off leaving a long tail for sewing. You will need to thread the tail through the side of the bow to bring the long chain up to its center, then placing it where you want it on the body you can sew it on and attach the other side of the chain where you’d like. Also while preparing the piece for attaching go around the center once to bring in the middle of the bow. I attached by going through the body to three different attachment points and then finished the other side of the chain rather than stitch the entire chain around. You can use the tail to tweak the sides of the bow as needed to have them sit properly. (See FIG. 1-4 below)

Assembly
Ears – The ears are attached between Rows 3 and 6 on the back side of the top of the head.
Eyes – The eyes are attached between Rows 6 and 10 about 3-4 stitches apart.
Mouth – The mouth was stitched on using a bit of Black yarn. I placed it on Row 11 with the bottoms of the mouth at the bottom of the row and the middle at the top. Honestly I liked him better without the mouth at all but I am also a stickler for being accurate to the source so…go with what you like best!
Arms – The arms are attached at Row 17. I advise attaching one arm on the row then eyeing it to attach it even on the other side. I ended up with the left arm being center on Row 17 and the right being just above Row 17 to make them sit even.
