Om Nom (Free Pattern)

So today’s free pattern is this little guy – Om Nom from Cut the Rope! He also counts as my Yarndango entry number God knows what now.

Om Nom Cut the Rope

 

I know most of my readership comes from America, and I’m not sure how big Cut the Rope was over there, so sorry if I’m preaching to the converted here. Cut the Rope is a cute little Android game where you have to cut ropes to feed candy to an adorable little green alien thing called Om Nom. It was big in the UK about a year ago, but I only discovered it last week. It’s amazing how much sitting around there is when your house floods (between panicked mopping, bailing out buckets full of water, and frantically calling your landlord, parents and the water board of course). So I nabbed my other half’s phone and got a little addicted to feeding Om Nom. And from addiction very rapidly came this amigurumi, which I have to admit is one of my proudest makes ever.

Om Nom eats candy:

And even crochet hooks:

Make your own with the free pattern (stage by stage photos plus more adorable photo shoots) after the jump!

The Essentials:

Hook: 3.5mm (makes the size shown, but I’m sure any hook size would work and scale up or down accordingly).

Wool: DK in green, red, pink, white and black.

Also needed: White felt, glue gun, optional pink felt.

Finished Size: 4″-5” tall.

Terms:

CH = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

INC = Increase

DEC = Decrease

SL ST = Slip Stitch

BLO = Back Loops Only

BPO = Back Post Only

YO = Yarn Over

Om Noms body is crocheted in two parts.

Base body

Magic ring/ Ch2 in green.

Round 1: 6sc into magic ring/ second chain from hook [6]
Round 2: INC around [12]
Round 3:{1sc, INC} around [18]
Round 4:{2sc, INC} around [24]
Round 5:{3sc, INC} around [30]
Round 6:{4sc, INC} around [36]
Round 7: {5sc, INC} around  [42]
Round 8: Sc around BLO [42]
Rounds 9-12: Sc around both loops [42]

Change to red in last YO of round 12.
In red:

Round 13: Sc around BLO [42]
Round 14: {5sc, DEC} around [36]
Round 15: {4sc, DEC} around [30]
Round 16: {3sc, DEC} around [24]
Round 17: {2sc, DEC} around [18]
STUFF
Round 18: {1sc, DEC} around [12]
Round 19: DEC around [6]

Finish off and tie in the loose ends.

Om Nom base

 

Looks kinda like a half watermelon! The BLO bits are what turn the crochet at a 90 degree angle – you can’t see it clearly in the photo (because it was took pre-squishing ) but the base isn’t actually curved, it’s flat. It’s clearer on the main finished photos.

Before you do the second part of the body (the head I suppose) you need to do the tongue. I’m not too pleased with my crocheted tongue, so I’d probably suggest just making it out of pink felt, but here’s how I’ve done it in case you want to try improve the pattern.

Tongue

Ch2/ magic ring in pink.

Round 1: 6sc into magic ring/ second chain from hook [6]
Round 2: INC around [12]
CH2
Round 1: 6sc into magic ring/ second chain from hook [6]
Round 2: INC around [12]

No that’s not a misprint – you’ll end up with two joined circles:

Tongue

Alternatively, crochet two separate circles and stitch them together.

Round 3: 18sc around both circles (sc into 9 stitches from each circle continuously, skip three when they join) [18]
Row 4: 6Sc [6] Ch1, turn
Row 5: 6Sc [6] Ch1, turn
Row 6: DEC three times [3].

Finish off:

Tongue

and sew up any hole where the two circles are joined, then sew in place in the centre of the red circle, so that the tongue lolls towards the front edge. It looks kinda like a skull to me at the mo. As I said, you’re probably better using pink felt for a better tongue!

Top body/ head

Magic ring/ Ch2 in green.

Round 1: 6sc into magic ring/ second chain from hook [6]
Round 2: INC around [12]
Round 3:{1sc, INC} around [18]
Round 4:{2sc, INC} around [24]
Round 5: Sc around [24]
Round 6:{3sc, INC} around [30]
Rounds 7-8: Sc around [30]
Round 9:{4sc, INC} around [36]
Round 10: Sc around [36]
Round 11: {5sc, INC} around  [42]
Round 12: Sc around [42]
Round 13: {6sc, INC} around [48]

Finish off, leaving a very long tail for sewing. You’ll have:

Om Nom Head

 

On the inside, find the back posts of Row 12.

Back posts

 

You’ll be crocheting into these. YO through your first one in red then continue:

Round 14: Sc around BPO [42]
NB: If you end up with 48 just add in an extra round here of ‘{6sc, DEC} around’ to the get to 42.

Om Nom head

Round 15: {5sc, DEC} around [36]
Round 16: {4sc, DEC} around [30]
Round 17: {3sc, DEC} around [24]
Round 18: {2sc, DEC} around [18]
STUFF
Round 19: {1sc, DEC} around [12]
Round 20: DEC around [6]

Finish off and tie in the loose ends. You should have:

This will now need sewing to the base. Plonk your body top/ head on top of your base body with the tongue pointing to the front. Sew from just before half way between the front and the back on either side. I’ve chosen to make a wide open mouthed Om Nom, but if you want your more closed mouth then simply sew further round towards the front – you can close the mouse fully by sewing all the way round.

I didn’t photograph this stage but you can see what I mean here.

Stuff them a little so they keep their shape, then sew them to the body in this formation:

For those of you still not sure who Om Nom is, he’s in the background of the first photo.

A final bit of finishing now!

Teeth

Cut six small triangles from white felt (size dependant on how open your mouth is – if you’ve totally closed the mouth only do the top four.

Glue gun the teeth in place, behind the lip ridge formed by the BPO on the top, and the BLO on the bottom, as shown.
