Free Crocheting Pattern for an Amigurumi Squirrel
Crochet Squirrel Pattern
Crochet a little Squirrel of your own. This was one of my first written crochet patterns. This is way before I knew about safety eyes so google eyes and pipe cleaner arms were my substitutes. I've motified it once but if you find any errors please do let me know.
I've posted this at CrochetMe.com and really enjoy making these little guys. In the first one I made arms from pipe cleaners and hot glued google eyes. You can add safety eyes (I like SunCatcherEyes.com) or really anything your creative heart desires. Make Him/Her your squirrel.
My Little Crochet Amigurumi Squirrel Pattern
As featured on Crochet Me
I'm pretty new to crochet toys so this is my first written pattern for the ones I do make. I've been into an animal fetish lately and this is just one of the animals I am in love with. I made this squirrel from a picture I found in a Nature Photography Book.
I am really bad at enhancing my creations 'personality' so don't feel you have to use exactly what I did. You can embroider, cut out felt features, use buttons, or whatever you feel with bring out your Squirrels personality.
