What is Cinamoroll?
Cinnamoroll is a Japanese character created by Sanrio, the same company behind Hello Kitty and My Melody. Cinnamoroll is a white puppy with long ears, big round eyes, and a cute little tail shaped like a cinnamon roll! He has lots of friends who often appear in merchandise featuring him, such as keychains, plush toys, stationery, and more.
Supplies Needed for Crochet Cinnamoroll
To get started on your journey to crocheting an adorable Cinnamoroll of your very own, you’ll need the following supplies:
- Yarn in a variety of colors – white, pink, blue, and yellow will be needed for Cinnamoroll’s body and details.
- Crochet hook size appropriate for the yarn you choose
- Stuffing material such as wool, cotton batting, or polyester fiberfill to stuff the plush toy
- Tapestry needle for embroidery
How to Crochet Cinnamoroll in 10 Easy Steps
Step 1: Make a Loop
Begin by making a magic ring (also known as an adjustable loop). Making a loop is an essential part of crocheting and it will form the base of your Cinnamoroll. To make one, wrap the yarn around 2 fingers and insert the hook into the loop.
Step 2: Chain Stitches
Next, you’ll need to chain stitch 10 times while keeping your chain stitches tight. Chaining is a basic crochet technique used to form the foundation of your project. Also, make sure to keep the first loop from Step 1 when doing this.
Step 3: Single Crochet
Once you’ve chained 10 stitches, single crochet into each of those chains, make sure to keep your single crochets tight and even so that your Cinnamoroll comes out looking neat. To single crochet, insert the hook into the chain and then yarn over (yo) before pulling the thread through.
Step 4: Increase Rounds
Continue single crocheting while increasing each round until you reach 10 stitches. Increasing is a way of adding extra stitches to your project, which will help form the shape of Cinnamoroll’s body. To increase, add two single crochets into the same stitch.
Step 5: Work Even
Once you have 10 stitches, work even until your project measures 4 inches from the loop. Working even means continuing to single crochet without any increases or decreases in each row. This will help create Cinnamoroll’s body shape and size.
Step 6: Decrease Rounds
After working even for 4 inches, you’ll need to decrease in each round until you have 3 stitches. Decreasing is the opposite of increasing; it helps make your project narrower and more defined. To decrease, single crochet two stitches together (also known as sc2tog).
Step 7: Cut Yarn and Fasten Off
Once you have 3 stitches, cut the yarn from the hook and fasten off. This will secure your project so that it stays in place. Cutting the yarn also helps keep your project neat and tidy.
Step 8: Stuff Your Cinnamoroll
Next, stuff your Cinnamoroll with the stuffing material of your choice. Make sure to stuff it firmly but not too tightly so that it holds its shape. You can also add a bit more stuffing in certain areas, such as the ears and legs, to make them look plumper.
Step 9: Close the Opening
Once your Cinnamoroll is nicely stuffed, you’ll need to close the opening at the top. To do this, use a tapestry needle and yarn to sew up the hole. Make sure to keep your stitches tight so that it doesn’t come undone.
Step 10: Embellishments
The last step in crocheting your Cinnamoroll is to add any desired embellishments. This could include embroidering on the eyes and a nose, adding a tuft of hair to the ears, or creating a cute tail out of yarn. You can also add any other details to make your Cinnamoroll look even more adorable!

8 Common Mistakes to Avoid
Are you just getting started learning how to crochet cinnamoroll? If so, there are a few common mistakes that you should avoid in order to create the perfect Cinnamoroll. Here are eight of them:
- Skipping gauge check. Before starting your project, it is important to do a gauge check. This will ensure that the pattern you are using is the right size for your Cinnamoroll. Skipping this step can lead to a finished product that is too small or too big.
- Not measuring the yarn correctly. Accurately measuring your yarn is key to making sure that you have the right amount of yarn for your Cinnamoroll project. Too little will mean that your work won’t be done properly, while too much can cause it to look messy.
- Not prewashing or felting the yarn when needed. If you are working with a yarn that needs to be prewashed or felted in order to create the perfect look, make sure to do so before starting your project. This will help ensure that your Cinnamoroll looks great and keeps its shape over time.
- Making too tight of stitches. Making too tight of a stitch can cause your Cinnamoroll to be rigid and hard to manipulate. This will make it difficult for you to create the perfect look, so try to keep your stitches loose.
- Not using enough fiber fill. Fiber fill is necessary in order to create a plush and full body for your Cinnamoroll. Make sure to stuff it as much as you can without overstuffing it, so that your Cinnamoroll looks perfect.
- Not blocking your work before sewing the pieces together. Blocking is an important step that helps your Cinnamoroll shape its body correctly and keep its form for a long time. Don’t skip this step!
- Using too much glue when sewing the pieces together. When using a hot glue gun to sew the pieces of your Cinnamoroll together, make sure that you are not using too much glue. Too much will cause it to look messy and can even damage some of the pieces if it is left on for too long.
- Not weaving in the ends. It is important to weave in all of your loose ends when you finish making your Cinnamoroll, as this will ensure that it looks professional and clean. This step also helps keep the pieces from unraveling over time.
By avoiding these eight common mistakes, you can be sure that your Cinnamoroll project turns out perfectly! Have fun and happy crocheting!
Tips for Working With Smaller Pieces
Working with small pieces can be tricky, but there are a few tips that you should keep in mind when making your Cinnamoroll. Here are some of the best ones:
- Use stitch markers to mark where you’ll start and end each section. This will help you keep track of where you are in the pattern and ensure that your work is even and consistent.
- Use a magnifying glass to help you see smaller stitches more clearly. A magnifying glass can be incredibly helpful when working with small pieces, as it will allow you to see mistakes that would otherwise go unnoticed.
- Use a blunt needle to help you pick up dropped stitches. A blunt needle is the perfect tool for picking up small, dropped stitches without damaging your work.
Crafting Cinnamoroll is not only an enjoyable craft activity, but one that can also bring a sense of accomplishment and pride. Once you have mastered this basic pattern, you could even create your own customized version of the popular plushie! Adding embellishments and further details to make each individual piece unique and special can really have a positive impact on the finished product.
