Pirate Playset


Playing pirates is a must, no matter what your age. Here we have a complete pirate playset to set fire to any imagination!

This pattern details how to create, step by step, your own little pirate playset. Complete with treasure chest, cannon, pirate flag and more! There are plenty of options to customize the final look, it really is up to your imagination. The pattern will give some idea prompts to help you make a unique creation.

The pieces are all worked up in regular sports weight yarn, and any brand will do. The pattern uses yarn to create as many of the pieces as possible, but a pipe-cleaner or cocktail stick are useful to make the hilt of the pirate sword and the mast for the pirate flag.

But first a few details:

Termnology: The pattern is written in English, in standard US terminology

Measurements: The finished pirate figures measure approx. 10 cm.

  • Stuffing material

In terms of difficult, the majority of the pattern is worked in single crochet stitches, with increases and decreases. If you are used to amigurumi patterns then this will be worked up in no time at all! There’s nothing a moderate beginner couldn’t handle.
