Make a seal – Free amigurumi pattern

Tiny Rabbit Hole Differences between crochet and knitting

This cute little seal is designed by Shu from Momshoo! She has created a knitted amigurumi pattern some time ago and we decided to use her seal character and recreate for crochet. Thank you Shu for accepting my random request!

Read more about our mini ‘race’ using a knitted and crochet pattern. We have also answered the most burning question which the crochet and knit community has been asking – what’s the difference between crochet and knitting?

Enjoy making this cute little seal! Don’t forget to tag and hashtag both @momshoo and @tinyrabbithole after you have finished making them!


Momshoo is a mother-and-daughter craft duo that works with traditional techniques of embroidery, hand-sewing and knitting. We design whimsical lifestyle products including pouches, home décor items and brooches. Momshoo is all about handmade items that are unique and personal, very much like a home-made gift from a friend.

Since 2014, we have also been holding workshops for participants to enjoy crafting with us stitch by stitch.
