12 Crochet Amigurumi Animal Patterns

I earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

If you love to crochet, I’m sharing some fun crochet animal patterns for you to try. You’ll find a crochet cat, owl, fox, and more. I’ve even included Reese the Alpaca, a cute Animal Crossing character.

If you’re new to crochet, I think that amigurumi projects are great beginner projects. If you’ve never heard of amigurumi, essentially, amigurumi are crocheted small projects such as dolls, or animals.

  1. The Best Crochet Hook: These BeCraftee crochet hooks are ergonomic and so comfortable to use.
