I’m in love with cute animal crochet toy patterns! Ever since the art of toy crocheting made a huge come back come back, people have been going crazy over amigurumi patterns. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting small stuff yarn animals. Most of these are worked in super easy stitches of single, double, invisible decrease, etc. There aren’t any hard techniques that you need to learn.
To help with shapes, some patterns will call for pipe cleaners and plastic eyes to attach. Of course, you can always hand stitch your own eyes onto these cute animal crochet toy patterns. I hope that you’ll love these amigurumi patterns as much as I do!
