MooMoo Cow Amigurumi Pattern

“Mooooooooo, hellloooooooo!” Do you hear that? It’s MooMoo, the amigurumi cow, saying a big HELLO to the Craft Passion family!  

It’s been awhile since my last amigurumi design and I am glad to present to you this very huggable MooMoo amigurumi cow stuffed animal. It is about 12” tall in standing position and 9” while sitting (yes, it can do both!), so it is just the right size for children who are looking for a huggable doll. Included in this crochet pattern are also additional instructions on filling the limbs and bottom of the body with stuffing pellets so you can weigh it down. Then your MooMoo can sit and stand on its own.

But before we begin, let me help you get started on amigurumi art. If this is a new craft for you, check out my tips on how to crochet in amigurumi. I hope this can help you try out this art form, so you can have fun in the world of amigurumi crochet patterns on my pages. 

MooMoo, the cow amigurumi is crocheted from a medium weight acrylic yarn and a 3.0mm hook. He has a white body, yellow nose and ears, and brown fists, feet, and horns. His body patches are made from felt (cut out) and then, sewn on with a blanket stitch. For a spot of color, this MooMoo stuffed cow has a fiery red jingle bell around his neck.

MooMoo, the amigurumi cow is a playful and curious milk cow who likes to hop and play all around the farm. Occasionally, he will pretend to be helpful by going from bucket to bucket, checking on the quality of the milk collected by the farmer’s wife from all the other milk cows. It is a normal sight to see MooMoo nosing his way from stall to stall, sniffing intently at all the milk, and when no one’s watching, quickly take a gulp from whichever bucket is filled to the brim.

Oh good, no one’s looking. I can just sniff this milk and …..slurppppp

Life on the farm is fun for this cow stuffed animal. He has so many things to go around and inspect – the chicken coop where Baby Chick amigurumi was born and the pen where Princess P amigurumi Piggy loves to snooze in on warm days. It helps that MooMoo is so independent too, he’s not afraid to explore every corner of the farm on his own, often making new friends and finding new hidey-hole along the way.

This morning, he found himself in a freshly-plowed meadow, with square bales of hay laying around, waiting for the farmer and family to hoist onto their wagons. He loves it when it’s this time of the year, the field is full of hay smells and everything looks so clean and clear. He knows that soon, the days will get colder, though, so sitting in the middle of all the cut hay is such a comfortable feeling. “Boy, it’s so nice and warm sitting in the hay,” This stuffed cow thinks. “In a few months’ time, the weather will turn cold and the fields will be in all shades of white and gray.”

Just thinking about the coming cold months made this crochet cow a little low. But it didn’t last long. Soon, he was smiling again because he decided that he would enjoy today as much as he can, so he will have good memories during those cold days. “Plus,” MooMoo the amigurumi cow said to himself, “Every cold season comes to an end and there will always be another warm season to look forward to. Which means, more hay to roll around in! Woohooooo!” 

And with that, off he went to look for more milk!

cow tail amigurumi

With White yarn:

ch, Inv dec around, slst, ch

Fasten off. Trim near the knot. Apply tiny craft glue to the end and shape it pointy.

Slightly pull the white and brown yarn end brought from the tip of the tail, tie them closely with the yarn tail at the beginning of the tail, compress the length of the tail so that it curves a little. Knot the yarn to secure nicely.

HOW TO

Mark the first stitch of each round:
If you do not have a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round, you can always use a short length of yarn to do the marking. Cross the yarn across at the first stitch as your work on each round.
Pull to remove the marking yarn after you have finished the part.cow amigurumi 1

Pellets Stuffing (Optional):
Sometimes we might want to weigh our amigurumi a little heavier on the limbs or other parts of the body, you may use the doll pellets or plastic beads to do that. Just fill the tiny pellets into a small bag, sew to close the opening. I like to use socks to make pellets bag because of the stretchable property of the knit.cow amigurumi 3

ASSEMBLY

  1. These are the parts of the MooMoo Cow before assembly.cow amigurumi 5
  2. Place the Nose to the Head of MooMoo Cow, just below the eyes, pin to secure the position.
    Sew around with a darning or tapestry needle, stuff the nose with polyester fiberfill at about 1″ before completing the nose sewing. Sew to close the gap after filling.
    Make dented points on the nose by stitching them into the head.cow amigurumi 6
  3. Position the ears and horns, pin and sew.cow amigurumi 7
  4. Attach the head to the body by sewing them together. I sewed the body a little off to the back of the head so that the back of the head and the back of the body is aligned.cow amigurumi 8
  5. Flatten the opening of the arm and sew it in between the head and body. Repeat to sew the other side.cow amigurumi 9
  6. Flatten the opening of the leg and sew it at the side of the body, about round 13 from the bottom.cow amigurumi 10
  7. Sew the tail to the back of the body.cow amigurumi 11
  8. Cut out some patches from black felt, sew them onto MooMoo Cow to complete it.cow amigurumi 12


MooMoo the amigurumi cow is special because he can sit and stand on his own, with help from some pellets or beads. All you need is a little sock bag to put them in, then position them into the limbs as you wish. 

If you think this is a little too advanced for you, try another farm animal, Mr. Murasaki, the amigurumi owl. He is MooMoo’s good friend and a lot easier to crochet. Both of them are fun to have around the house. 

Show me how your cow amigurumi turns out. I would love to hear from you.
