Crocheted Chess King & Queen

By Sarah-Jane Hicks

Chess has been around for centuries, and players of this strategic classic will love Sarah-Jane Hicks’ amigurumi version of the two most valuable pieces. Standing at around 16cm high, Sarah-Jane’s Crocheted Chess King and Queen figures are made using Scheepjes Cotton 8 and a 2.5mm hook. Should you want to get serious and adapt the design to make an entire set, two of the 50g balls will make up to 10 pieces.

  • Yarn B 515 (black) x 1 ball
