Free Crochet Pattern: Mr. Buckwheat from Goblin도깨비

Lost in her thoughts about Shin, she doesn’t notice the squid catching fire. She blows out the flame when she notices, and starts to panic when she realised what she had done. On the other hand, Shin smiles when he sees the smoke emitting from his hands. He’s glad that she has finally summon him.

Today, we will learn how to make Boglegel aka. Mr Buckwheat from the popular Korean drama – Goblin. I modelled my crochet version against the actual plush, so this pattern has little details such as the removable hoodie and cute thumbs.

Disclaimer: I crocheted him in the wee hours of the morning so I can’t say for sure if there are zero mistakes in the pattern. If in doubt, just leave me a comment and I will try to help.

  • 4mm crochet hook
  • Passion knit Slumberland Frances Yarn in light brown and cream
  • 12-ply yarn in black and light pink

    Hi! I love this pattern and am gonna try it, but I was wondering if you have progress photos. And also, would you be able to list how many stitches after each round? ❤

      Hi Anna, unfortunately I didn’t snap any progress photos as it was quite dark when I was working on him. As for the stitch counts, you can do the checks at certain rows where the pattern indicates the no. of sc required.

  2. i dont understand how to start the body like what do you mean by
    Sc across from 2nd ch and Sc across the other side of the chain shouldn’t i just start with a magic ring with 12sc ?

      Hello there! Apologies for the late reply. Ch 12, sc frm 2nd st onwards and on the other side of the chain. Work in rounds thereafter. I modelled this against the actual plush hence for close resemblance, suggest to work it this way instead of magic ring from the beginning as the leg area is “rectangle-ish”.

    Hi! First I love your creation! It’s so cute! ❤ I do have a question on the head. If it's a continuation from the body, R1 on the body should start with 29 stitches? If that's correct, then R2 is 29 stitches, R3 is a (sc, inc) around, inc, and I came up with a count of 44 stitches. But when I figure out the count for R5, the instructions only cover up to a count of 43 stitches. So I ended up just decreasing the last one to make it match which brought me to a new total of 58 stitches. R6-12 are 58 stitches. Then when I come to round 13, 5sc, inc, 29sc, inc, 20 sc, the count comes to a total of 58 stitches. that leaves me with 2 extra stitches. Did I do something wrong? Sorry, this is a bit confusing. Thank you for your help! 🙂

      Hi Musubi, thanks for writing in 🙂 Apologies for the late reply as I was on a vacation. Rnd 3 should be 14 sets of (sc, inc) plus one additional inc at the last st i.e. 43 st in total.

      Hi there! Apologies for the late reply. I’ve been so caught up with my house moving matters. Unfortunately I do not have a video tutorial for this pattern. Which part of the pattern do you require clarity on?
