This listing is for two original crochet amigurumi patterns (Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Girl) by June Gilbank. 

Please note: if you've already bought one of these patterns, don't use this listing! Just pick the one you want: 
Chunky and flat, just like the edible version, Gingerbread Man is crocheted amigurumi-style (in a continuous spiral) from only 35m (40 yds) of yarn and has only 4 pieces, so the pattern works up quickly with minimal finishing!
This Expansion Pack includes all the modifications for the Gingerbread Man pattern required to crochet a Gingerbread Girl with a built-in skirt.

Yarn: approx 35m (40yds) worsted weight yarn per gingerbread person (the pictured samples use Bernat Satin yarn) 

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Size: approx 6" (15cm) tall. (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)

Additional info: All the embellishment options pictured here are included in the patterns, but Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Girl are the perfect blank canvases for you to decorate however you want - just like the edible kind!

You can create all sorts of expressions and accessories, personalise them to match your family members, and match the embellishment colours to your seasonal decor. Or keep the decorations as simple and fast as you want - it's completely up to you.

  • To make the small crocheted features pictured here, you'll also need:
    • Embroidery floss (in black, white and red, or your choice of colours)
    • B US/2.25mm crochet hook
  • Or, to make an extra-large gingerbread man (approx 8"/20cm tall), you'll need:
    • Gingerbread: 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together plus an I US/5.5mm hook
    • Embellishments: 1 strand of the same yarn plus an E US/3.5mm hook
  • To decorate your gingerbread man in any way you choose, you could also use:
    • Your choice of craft supplies (e.g. embroidery floss and tapestry needle, felt, buttons, beads, sequins, glue, fabric paint, etc)
