Design Notes
Some of the parts of this doll are started using the magic ring technique. Here are directions if you are unfamiliar with this technique. The doll is worked in the round unless otherwise instructed. Mark the last stitch in each round to keep track of where you are supposed to stop each round. This is also done with a very tight tension. Tight tension will stop the stuffing from showing through the stitches and help the doll keep his shape.

FINISHING

- Place small amounts of PolyFill into the very bottom half of the hands and feet, leaving the top half empty. Sew them to the body so The Moogle will be in a seated position.

- Flatten the wings and sew the open ends shut. Attach them onto the body as shown in this photo

- Fill the body with the PolyBeans and place a small amount of PolyFill at the top to keep the beans from spilling. Set aside.

- Fill the nose with PolyFill and sew it and the ears to the Head.

- Using the black yarn, sew the lines for the eyes. Set Head aside.

- Using the plyers, bend the top of the wire into a shape to hold it inside the Bauble. This could be a Y, T or spiral shape. Slide it through the center of one Bauble half. Sew the two halves together leaving a small hole to stuff the Bauble and then finish sewing it together.

- Slip the wire through the top of the head and out the bottom. Bend this end of the wire at the length you want the Bauble to be above the head and into another shape to hold it inside the head.

- Fill the head with PolyFill and sew it to the body.

- Sit back and enjoy your new friend!

    I literally jumped for joy when I found this, looking up an image of a moogle for a project I’m working on.

    I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for posting this! I usually crochet teddy bears, and it was beginning to get a bit old… Now I can really delve into it again.

    You have made my day! Thank you!!


  2. Wow, this is wonderful!

    I don’t crochet however :( I do knit though, and have knitted a moogle of my very own. I just found a random teddy pattern and based it off of that. I’ve yet to make the wings though, lol.

    I have no idea what a moogle is but my 20 year old son is very excited to see it and wants one created for himself and his 35 year old uncle. and I thought crochet was to make baby things.

  11. I love your creations; I am crocheting weighted critters for my grandson, who was diagnosed not too long ago with a high functioning autism (SPD) and I cannot find poly-beans or poly pellets. Where can I find them. thank you. (I have been using rice in cloth bags that I sew and putting velcro on the bottom of the items to take the bags of rice out for washing. I would like to use the poly beans/pellets so I don’t have to go to that much trouble).

  12. Pika Says:

    I must say, I can not agree with you in 100%, but it’s just my opinion, which indeed could be very wrong.
    p.s. You have an awesome template for your blog. Where have you got it from?

  15. Leilalockhart Says:

    Hey!! I ADORE your stuff!! it’s all fantastic and looks great! quick question…. when you posted this design sonmewhere else you said it was… 3 1/2 inches? is that right? and is it possible to make it bigger? I’ve never crocheted in my life, but i have someone who is very willing to help me and who knows how to do it… so is it possible to make this like… teddy bear sized? as a gift? thanks so much!

  16. mew1230 Says:

    I love moogles ^^
    I have a question on the gauge. I have never worked with one so Im kinda lost then pattern says 6 stiches and 6 per row. can you please explain it a bit more?

    1. amysbabies Says:

      the gage is just to indicate that the crochet needs to be done very tightly. The tighter the better, that way it won’t distort when it is stuffed
