FREE Crochet Pattern - Mr. Poopybutthole Plush from Rick and Morty

Make yourself a long-time family friend!

I'm not totally pleased with the hat I made for mine, so do as I say in this pattern not as I have done in the photos, kids.

Your finished Mr. Poopybutthole will be about 14" from the top of his hat to his feet.

Materials and Stuff

  • size J crochet hook
  • worsted weight yarn in yellow, black, cyan (or some light blue), brown, and a little white - I actually used sport weight yarn for his yellow parts because it was a nicer yellow, but worsted should be fine

  • stitch marker
  • some sort of stuffing material
Abbreviations
  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • rnd/rnds: round/rounds
  • st/sts: stitch/stitches
