Squirrel Amigurumi Crochet Pattern by Paw-Gurumis

Pattern Notes from Underground Crafter

  • This pattern uses US crochet abbreviations. You can find a standard list of abbreviations here.
  • Pattern pieces are crocheted in the round in unjoined spirals. (Optional: Use a stitch marker in the last stitch of each round to mark position. Move stitch marker up each round.)
  • Pattern pieces worked in the round list the total number of stitches in the round first with directions following in parenthesis.
  • To increase, work 2 sc into same st.
  • To decrease, I recommend the invdec. Planet June has a helpful invdec video tutorial here.
  • Oombawka Design Crochet has helpful tutorials for the magic circle (also called the magic ring) here.
