Golang Gopher Amigurumi

Free Crochet Pattern

Wazzuuuup Crochet Crew?

Ever feel that solo vibe when you’re deep in the code grind? Say no more, fam. I got the solution to kill that loneliness: Peep my Golang Gopher Amigurumi crochet pattern. Whip up one of these dope Gopher homies, and you’ve got yourself a day-one coding sidekick. Real talk, once you’ve got them lil’ dudes by your side, taking care of them is even more chill than crafting them up in the first place.

This design? Pure freestyle. Rolled the dice and it came out straight fire. So I thought, why not spread the love? If you’re rocking both those Cs – coding and crocheting – then keep those eyes glued here.

And just a heads up: I’m mad in love with Go right now (yeah, geeking out a bit). And nah, it ain’t just ‘cause of that cute mascot, though he’s a major plus. 😹

UPDATE: meanwhile, I have reworked this Pattern to low-sew and offering 2 different sizes.


If you are generally interested in software and development as well (which I somehow assume with you landing on this pattenr), check out my blog original.flipster here.
