Meet Kevin the crochet minion

In the film Despicable Me 2 some of the minions got names:

Since my dad is called Kevin and I was looking for a new crochet project after the monster amigurumi, I decided to have a go at making a Kevin crochet minion.

I can be a bit of a perfectionist at times and was enjoying experimenting with different crochet shapes to get just the right look.  There were quite a few tries before I was happy with the final look:

A bonus was that when put together little Kevin was able to stand up on his own.

This wasn’t a quick project as there was lots of undoing and redoing and working on small details, but I really enjoyed the process and am very happy with the finished character.

Here are some photos of Kevin exploring his new home:

  1. Hi Alexandra,
    I love your crocheted minions!
    I have an officemate named Kevin, and we have been trying to find one of the McDonald’s Kevin the Minion for him. I was wondering if you have a pattern for your crocheted Kevin, andwhere you got it, or if you would be willing to share it with me. I crochet, but I’m not expert enough to create my own figures.
    Many thanks,
    Ginny

    1. Hi Ginny,
      Thank you 🙂
      I didn’t use a pattern for the minions I made, so I just have rough notes to myself which aren’t really in a shareable state. However I believe a few other people have posted crochet minion patterns so if you search for those hopefully you will find something that fits the bill.
      Good luck with your search for a Kevin minion for your office mate!
      Alex
