Super Mario World Fire Flower



I have very fond memories of spending hours and hours playing Super Mario World on our Super Nintendo as a child. When I was looking for patterns for my first softie/amigurumi I was excited at all of the Mario items and characters I found (most from the amazing WolfDreamer - this woman is amazing and I have already made quite a few of her patterns). After making a few items, I wanted to add a fire flower to my set, but all I could find were patterns for the more recent versions. So I decided to add my own!

It starts out with a semi-circle to which I've added some points and a stem with leaves. A big thanks to Inner Child Crochet for their tutorial on semicircles which you can find here

This is the first time I've ever written a pattern for anyone else, so please let me know if there are any problems or if you have any questions.

Materials
8ply/DK weight yarn in orange, green and a tiny bit of black
3mm hook
yarn needle
fibre fill or other stuffing
This is what I used, but feel free to adjust to what you have at hand. I have learnt with basic amigurumi that gauge isn't super important, as long as your hook is small for your yarn so it's nice and tight.

The numbers in brackets at the end of the row indicate the number of stitches in that row.

Flowers - make 2
1. Ch 2. 3 sc in second chain from the hook.
2. Sc twice in each Sc, ch 1 turn (6)
3. Sc in next Sc, Sc twice in next Sc across ch 1 turn (9)
4. Sc in next 2 Sc, Sc twice in next Sc. Repeat to end. ch 1 turn (12)
5. Sc in next 3 Sc, Sc twice in next Sc. Repeat to end. Ch 1, turn. (15)
6. Sc in next 4 Sc, Sc twice on next Sc. Repeat to end. Ch 1, turn. (18)
7. Sc in next 5 Sc, Sc twice on next Sc. Repeat to end. Ch 1, turn. (21)
