Make a seal – Free amigurumi pattern

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!

Instructions

  • Our amigurumi are mostly done in continuous rounds starting with a Magic Ring. You don’t need to end with a slip stitch. Do use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch of every round at all times.
  • You may wish to download the Counter+ app to help you with your counting.
  • Please crochet the stitches tightly to prevent the poly-fiber stuffing from showing. However, do not crochet too tightly, otherwise it’ll be difficult to continue.
  • Be sure to push the washer down only the first screw of the safety eye, so as to prevent bulging.
  • If you’re using a smaller washer, you have to push down twice.
  • Always stuff your amigurumi firmly till the point that it feels bouncy.
  • Always leave a long tail for sewing.
  • When felting, ensure that the needle is perpendicular to object.
