Ponyo Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

SHARE

One more amigurumi from one of the animated movies by Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli! This time I made Ponyo which is a character from a movie called Ponyo on the Cliff or Gake no ue no Ponyo. You can read Ponyo amigurumi crochet pattern in this post.

Ponyo on the Cliff is a fantasy movie and suitable for all ages. The main characters are Ponyo, the little fish, and Sousuke, the boy who finds Ponyo. Ponyo, who left her home in the ocean, doesn’t want to come home and wants to live with Sousuke in her human form.

Like other Hayao Miyazaki movies, I really like the colors and the scenery shown. The story is very entertaining. The theme song composed by Joe Hisaishi is also very fun to enjoy.

I share Ponyo amigurumi crochet pattern free in this post. But if you need printable PDF crochet pattern, you can purchase it in my Shop. PDF crochet pattern also available in Ravelry.
