In august 2013 I crocheted an Om Nom from Cut the Rope, following a pattern by fishmamma. He is pretty adorable if I do say so myself.

Mini Voltorb Pattern

This is my pattern for mini Voltorb, mine was made with 3 mm needles and DK yarn, but you could make it bigger by using different needles and yarn.  It is knitted in the round, with optional extra eyebrows knitted flat. I used a single circular needle and the magic loop method, but you could also use double pointed needles, or two circular needles.

You will need:

Circular or double pointed needles

Red and white yarn

Black thread for details

White felt for eyes

Fabric glue


Cast on 6 stitches in white and work in the round

1. k6 (6)

2. kfb 6 times (12)

3. k12 (12)

4. ‘K1, kfb’ 6 times (18)

5. k18

6. ‘k2 kfb’ 6 times (24)

7. k24

8. ‘k3 kfb’ 6 times (30)

Change to red

9. k30

10. k30

11. ‘k3, k2tog’ 6 times (24)

12. k24

13. ‘k2, k2tog’ 6 times (18)

14. k18

Begin to stuff now if you haven’t already

15. ‘k1, k2tog’ (12)

16. k12

17. ‘k2tog’ 6 times (6)

Cut tail and thread through the remaining stitches, pull tight

 Thread any remaining tails through the body and cut to hide.

 I used black thread in a single stitch around his equator and secured at the back to neaten up the border between red and white, but he looks fine without this extra detail.

 Eyebrows- optional

 Once working out the position of the eyes but before securing them,

 Pick up 5 stitches over each eye, starting at the outer corner of the left eye and work flat

 Kfb K3 Kfb ( working with the face pointing away from you) (7)

 Cast off the seven stitches Purlwise .

Use the tail to secure the corners of the free edge.

 Repeat for the right eye, except start picking up stitches from the inner corner.

 I sewed a line of black thread under the free edge of each eyebrow to give definition, but this is up to you.


Secure the felt triangles with fabric glue, using a picture of Voltorb as a guide. Alternatively you could embroider them.

 Using a single black stitch add the pupil to the eye. A short vertical stitch from above the edge of the felt down into the centre.

And you are done!

I hope you enjoy making your own Mini Voltorb and if you have any questions you can contact me here or on my Ravlery page (
