Who doesn't like this adorable and very funny animation!
The Minions are small, yellow henchmen shaped like pill capsules who have one or two eyes and a few wispy strands of black hair on their heads. There are many of them, and I love them all but I've made just only one Minion with a tiny cute bear.

Here he is!


Size: It is approx. 9cm/3.5in if you use specified yarn and hook.

The pattern can also work well with the yarn of other weight, but the size of finished crochet toy will be different.

1. Cotton yarn weight sport: blue, yellow, white, black.
    Crochet thread n.10: brown, grey
2. Crochet hook 1,6 mm/7 for Minion, and 0.7mm/13 for the bear
3. Yarn Needle
4. Scissors
5. Pins
6. Black, pink, white thread embroider eyes, mouth
7. Polyester
8. Stitch marker or remaining yarn
