Zebra Amigurumi Doll: Free Crochet Pattern!

This zebra crochet pattern is free! And it is also super-cute! With his big snout and striped pajamas he's ready for some serious snuggle time. His long thin arms and legs are suitable for little hands to grab hold, so you may consider making him as a baby shower gift. Use your favorite colors: the world could do with more pink and yellow zebras!

This pattern has been translated and published in this article with permission of the original designer: Ana Artedetei. This super-crafty person has filled her aptly named "Hyperactive Mothers" website with examples and patterns of all her crafts, including fabric flowers and stuffed animals, bespoke t-shirts, bags and purses, surgical caps, knitted hats and scarfs, felted decorations, Halloween costumes and, ofcourse, amigurumi crochet patterns!
