50+ DIY Amigurumi Teapot Crochet Ideas, Tutorials and Free Patterns

By

Some people may defer to the European, Beauty and Beast type of teapot, but this little amigurumi teapot is inspired by the distinctive look of the Japanese tetsubin tea kettles. Of course, at this size, a round teapot is any round teapot, but hopefully the unique handle of this amigurumi sets it a bit apart!

This teapot is constructed pretty simply, using crocheted rounds, worked with a seam along the back.

But you don’t close the top of the amigurumi right away. You leave it open so you can create the loops through which the handles will go. Then you work up a separate cap, just like a real kettle that is then sewn onto the body of the kettle using mattress stitch.

When the body is done, line up the spout on either side of the face, and sew it to the body. You can add just a tiny bit of stuffing in the spout to help it hold its shape.

Unlike the little teapot song where the handle is on the other side of the spout, the handle floats above the tea kettle and is simply made from chain stitches and macrame square knots.

You can also purchase a printable and downloadable PDF from my pattern shops. The inexpensive PDF includes all the instructions below, as well as photos at the end for easy printing. Having a PDF is great for offline crocheting!

ASSEMBLY

Align the seams of the CAP on the BODY and sew the CAP onto the BODY using a mattress stitch, skipping the ch 3 loops.

Stuff the amigurumi before sewing the opening closed. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Sew the SPOUT onto the body, aligned with the ch 3 loops and so that the bottom of the spout lines up just above the eyes. You can stuff the spout lightly.

Use C1 and ch 50, starting and ending with a long tail. Thread an end of the handle through both ch 3 loops and then tie ends together.

Double up on the handle.

Take the beginning and end tails and work macrame square knots around the handle for about an inch.

Fasten off and weave in the two ends.

Enjoy your new amigurumi teapot!
