A Birthday Goomba

goomba plushie

I’ve been planning on making this guy for over a year now and I finally did it!!! Happy Birthday Bobby!!! 😀 ~<3 Anna


Nerdigurumi’s “A Goomba-gurumi Pattern


  • Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted yarn in Cream
  • Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn in Chocolate
  • Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn in either Honey or Rust… pretty sure it’s Honey (threw out the label… sorry ^^;)


  • Boye G6
  • Bates E

I made a few minor changes to the Nerdigurumi Pattern.

  1. Used a G6 hook (cuz “G” is for Goomba :P)
  2. Different yarn/colors because I wanted it to look more accurate
  3.  Alternate start instead of the ch 2 or magic ring. (ch 4, join to form ring. Ch 1, sc 6 into ring.)
  4. Decided against the invisible decreases because I wasn’t turning it inside out. Switched to an “E” hook to make tighter stitches instead.
  5. Opted for the glue gun approach  to face items instead of sewing it on. XD
