Amigurumi Crochet pattern tough Viking with red beard

Pedr the Viking


Step back in time and experience the adventures of Pedr the Viking with this cool Amigurumi Crochet Pattern!


In 1781 Pedr Hansson married Magdalena Wilkens in Amsterdam. Pedr is an ancestor through my father's side, he came from Denmark. I can't get any closer to Viking blood! This pattern brings a piece of Viking history to life with a modern twist.

Pedr Hansson, a true Viking from Denmark, comes to life with his distinctive red beard and tough look. While he may look intimidating with his horned helmet, knife, and axe, Pedr is actually a very friendly guy – perfect for Viking-age adventures or just as a unique decorative piece.


This crochet pattern offers the opportunity to create a unique and characterful figure, complete with wild red beard and a long braid that accentuate his proud Viking heritage. For the cool effect, Pedr wears a helmet with horns, a nod to the iconic Viking style.


Do you dare to crochet Pedr the Viking and bring a piece of history to life?

Lynn: I couldn't resist this gorgeous Viking when I saw it, then wondered whether I'd bitten off more than I could chew! However it was much simpler to make than I'd expected, and I'm delighted with Pedr!
