Squirrel Amigurumi Free Pattern

Hello amigurumi lovers and beautiful visitors, I wanted to share the free amigurumi patterns for you here. In my article I will share 1 pattern and how to make it for you. At the end of my article, I will share amigurumi patterns that can generate ideas for you.

Supplies:
• Yarn 4/Medium Weight in…
Light brown and dark brown
•3mm Crochet Hook
•Tapestry needle
•Scissors
•Stuffing
•8mm safety eyes
•(Optional) Pet brush for brushing out tail

Additional Information:

To start this squirrel, we will first start by making the top of our head, then working our way down to the body. The head and body are made in one continuous piece. After this, we will make his legs, arms, and ears. Finally, we’ll make his bushy tail!

• Getting the bushy tail
The tail looks cute being bushy, but you can definitely keep it regular! If you want it to look furry, I recommend getting a pet brush to brush out the tail. I bought a pet brush at the Dollar Tree. To brush out the tail, just run the brush over the same area a number of times, and the fur will form. Repeat this all over the tail.
