Pierogi have always been a huge part of my life. At every holiday or family gathering growing up, pierogi were never short in number. It was not a party unless you wound up regretting the sheer number that you consumed. Even now, at every holiday we bust out the pierogi platters and pile ’em on high with all of the carby goodness.
When my husband and I started dating, he had never had a pierogi before. I know, weird right? Not. One. Needless to say, he quickly became a fan – I mean, how could he not?! I have so many happy times tied to these that it’s safe to say they conjure up all the warm and fuzzies for me.
Do yourself a favor, make you or someone you know one (or several) of these fun little amigurumi pierogi! Chances are you know a pierogi fiend who might get a laugh out of these!
These is a great beginner-friendly pattern. These are so quick to work up that you can easily make up a bunch in an afternoon and start spreading the pierogi love!
sc (single crochet)
inc (increase): Make 2 single crochet stitches into the same stitch.
dec (decrease): Insert hook under front loop only of next two stitches, yarn over, draw through first two loops on hook, yarn over, draw through remaining loops to finish.
sl st (slip stitch)
blo (back loop only): Rather than insert your hook into both loops, insert your hook under the back loop only and work the indicated stitches.
Gauge is not terribly important here as long as you are producing a nice tight fabric so that the polyfil won’t pop through your stitches.
This pattern is written using US terminology.
Pattern is worked up in continuous(spiral) rounds. I recommend using a stitch marker in the first stitch of each round.
Size of finished item measures approximately 3.5″ wide and 2″ tall.
Please note that I crochet left-handed and my photo guides reflect this. If you crochet right-handed (with your hook in your right hand), all the stitches are the same and will look the same, you will simply be working in the opposite direction as I am.
Please do not copy or sell my pattern in any way. You are most welcome to sell finished objects made using my pattern. I only ask for you to credit me so that other makers can find my patterns as well. Thanks!

Make a sl st into next st and fasten off, leaving at least a 6 or 7 inch tail for sewing.
Now, begin stuffing your pierogi. They’re very small so not a lot of stuffing is needed, and if you over stuff it gets a little difficult to sew it up.
Thread your yarn needle with the tail left behind after finishing off the pierogi.
Now it’s time to to sew the pierogi together!
Now finish off and weave in your yarn tail and enjoy your little pierogi!
