Craft a Charming Mike Wazowski Crochet Ornament

Discover the joy of crafting your own festive ornaments with this engaging and easy-to-follow crochet tutorial.


Today, we’re focusing on a crowd favorite – Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc!

This project involves creating a spherical crochet panel which forms the base for various holiday ornaments.

With this base, you can let your imagination run wild to create nearly any ornament design you desire.

Creating a Fandom Favorite

For this project, we’ll be using the crochet technique to craft a charming Mike Wazowski ornament, a fun twist on a beloved character.

Typical of my Ragdoll patterns, this creation involves making separate pieces in flat rows, then joining them together for a unique 2D appearance. This pattern does not require color-work, so it’s a breeze to finish up!


The completed ornament measures approximately 10cm/4″ from top to bottom. If you prefer a smaller ornament or tend to crochet loosely (my technique leans toward tight crocheting), feel free to adjust to a weight 3 yarn. Don’t forget to modify your hook size too – a 2.75mm hook should do just fine.

Let’s dive in!

Materials Required

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

  • 3.25mm hook for main piece
  • Hobbii Rainbow 8/8 Cotton in Colour 84 (less than 50g) or any worsted weight yarn in green
  • Patons Canadiana in Winter White (less than 50g) or any worsted weight yarn in white

Step-by-Step Mike Wazowski Ornament Pattern

The pattern involves creating a main panel (two pieces), two horns, one eye, and one brow. Follow the steps in the “Mike Wazowski Ornament Free Crochet Pattern” text for detailed instructions on how to create each piece.

After creating these pieces, proceed to the assembly stage:


  1. Face: Stitch or glue the eye onto the front panel. Stitch a mouth under the eye using black crochet thread. Use green yarn to stitch the brow onto the front panel above the eye.
  2. Joining Panels: Start by aligning the panels and crocheting around the edge in green. Attach the first horn between the panels and secure it with green yarn. Stuff the ornament, then continue crocheting around. Attach the second horn in the same way as the first, then top up the stuffing and close off the crochet.
  3. Finish: Add a hanging loop or an ornament hook, and voila, your Mike Wazowski ornament is ready to shine!
