My kiddos have been OBSESSED with this app called Among Us. Have you heard of it?
Just make sure you figure out who the IMPOSTER is and you’re all good.
Your character is a super cute little astronaut! AND SO…
IN CROCHETVERSE MOMMY STYLE…
I HAD TO MAKE ONE!
You can make a whole bunch. You can make imposters. You can launch your own mission with your own little crochet babes in your house.
SUPER fast too!

Now, for the pattern:
– small amounts of worsted weight yarn in red, dark red, black, white, light blue, dark gray
– G (4.25mm) crochet hook
– small amount stuffing
– tapestry needle, scissors
About 5.5” tall by 5” wide
Want a bigger toy? Double the yarn and use an I(5.5mm) hook
While not critical, you need to make sure you have tight tiny stitches so the stuffing doesn’t show through.

Joining the two main body panels:
Lay the panels on top of each other making sure that the right side of the edge round is facing out on both sides. *I tucked the ends from the main body panels inside the body as I joined and did not bother to weave them in.*
Rnd 1: Insert hook through any st working through both panels to join, then join black yarn, ch 1, sc in same sts, stuffing lightly with stuffing as you work the round and working through both sts matching st for st all the way around, sc in each around to join the panels together. Once around, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn. Weave in any ends.

Join the backpack panels:
Lay the backpack panels on top of each other, matching colors making sure the right side of the edge round is facing out on both panels, in the same manner as you joined the main body panels together, join the black yarn in st working through both panels at the same time to join and sc in each st around, tuck the tails inside and there is no need to stuff. Once around, sl st to 1st st made and leave long tail to sew to body.
Using the long end tail from the backpack and making sure the right side of both black edge rounds are facing up, sew the backpack to the right side of the body so the bottom row of the dark red sits at the same row as the top of the leg on the right side of the body. I sewed the black edge round of the backpack behind the black edge round of the body. Weave in ends.
With gray, chain 5:
Row 1: sc in 2nd bb from hook and nxt 3 bb. (4)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc. (4)
Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc, continue to edge round. (4)
Do not turn, sc in each end of row and st around making 3sc in each corner, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn.
With right side of gray end round facing up, join black with a sl st in any sc around, ch 1, sc in same st and each st around, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn leaving a long tail to sew to face. Weave in all ends except the long last black end.
With light blue, chain 6:
Row 1: sc in 2nd bb from hook and each bb across, cut yarn leaving tail for sewing. (5)
Using the light blue tail and using the photo as a guide, sew the blue at the top just inside the black edge so it meets up.
With white, chain 3:
Row 1: sl st in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch, cut yarn leaving tail for sewing.
Using the white tail and using photo as a guide, sew the white to the top left side of the blue.
Weave in all ends except the long black end from row 3. Using the long black tail sew the face shield to the left side of the body opposite the backpack. Weave in any remaining ends.
Using a strand of black yarn and tapestry needle, sew a crease line from the crotch to the left leg as seen in the main pattern photo.
