AMIGURUMI BABY SLOTH FREE PATTERN

Head (starting with cream yarn)

R1: Ch 7, starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc 6, turn and sc 6 in the front loops of the chain (12 sts)

This is called a foundation chain and is a great way to start a piece that you want to be more oval than round. After crocheting through the top loops of the chain (pics. 1 & 2), you turn your work around and crochet in the bottom loops of the chain (pics. 3 & 4). The first round is complete! Now you just continue as you normally would.

R2: Inc 1, sc 4, inc 2, sc 4, inc 1 (16 sts)

R3: *Sc 1, inc 1 sc 5, inc 1* rep 2 times (20 sts)

Switch to brown yarnR4: Sc 1, inc 1 sc 1, inc 5, sc 1, inc 1, sc 1, inc 1, sc 7, inc 1 (29 sts)

Increasing 5 in a row at the top of the head gives him a cute sloping forehead.

R5-7: Sc in all 29 sts (3 rounds total—29 sts)

R8: Sc 1, dec 1, sc 1, dec 5, sc 1, dec 1, sc 1, dec 1, sc 7, dec 1 (20 sts)

R9: Sc in all 20 sts (20 sts)

Cut out two small oval pieces of felt, each about 3/4 inch (4.5 cm) long. Cut small slits in each of the ovals and insert the safety eyes (make sure the slits you make aren’t exactly in the middle, but towards the top of the pieces).

But do NOT put the safety backings on yet until the eyes are properly positioned on the face and the felt pieces are sewn into place.

Insert his right eye (your left when facing him) between R 2 & 3, where the arrow is pointing. Insert his left eye (your right when facing you) between R 1 & 2 where the other arrow is pointing.

As you see, you should have about 4 1/2 sts between the felt pieces. The face is what makes the sloth cute, so make sure you take your time to get it just right. 🙂

Now we’ll embroider the little nose on, right between the eyes in the middle of the foundation chain. The nose is about 1 1/2 sts wide. Embroider 3-4 sts across using black embroidery floss.

Do not attach the safety eye backings until the felt pieces are sewed on.

Using the sewing thread and your needle, neatly sew the felt pieces to the head. You will always need more sewing thread than you think, so start with a long piece.

Felt pieces should be at a slight angle, with the bottoms pointing away from each other. Now attach the safety backings.

And there you go! The hardest part is over! Now continue crocheting.

R10: *Sc 2, dec 1* rep 5 times (15 sts)

Stop and start stuffing, continuing as you work.

R11: *Sc 1, dec 1* (10 sts)

R13: *Dec 1* (5 sts)

Finish off. Finish stuffing firmly and sew up hole neatly, since this part will be visible.

Body (using brown yarn)

R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook

R2: *Inc 1* rep 6 times (12 sts)

R3-6: Sc in all 12 sts (4 rounds total-12 sts)

Finish off leaving long tail for sewing. Stuff firmly and sew to head. The body will be positioned the same way for the long-armed sloth as for the short-armed sloth. Refer to the picture at the beginning to get the body positioned just right.

Arms (for SHORT-armed sloth)

Using brown yarn. Start with a long tail for sewing later.

Ch 4, starting in 2nd ch from hook, sl st 3

Finish off leaving tail for sewing.

Sew arms onto the sides of the body right up against the neck. When there’s more than one yarn tail on any given piece, usually when you’re working in rows, I like to weave both ends into the body or head. That way there aren’t any ends popping out or fraying like they do when you just cut them.

Legs (for SHORT-armed sloth)

Using brown yarn. Start with a long tail for sewing later.

Ch 3, starting in 2nd ch from hook, sl st 2

Finish off leaving tail for sewing.

Sew the legs onto R 3 & 4 of the body. Weave in all ends

Arms (for LONG-armed sloth)

Using brown yarn. Start with a long tail for sewing later.

Ch 9, starting in 2nd ch from hook, sl st 8

Finish off leaving tail for sewing.

Sew onto the center of the body, under neck. See the picture below to see how to sew his back arm on. Weave in all ends.

Legs (for LONG-armed sloth)

Using brown yarn. Start with a long tail for sewing later.

Ch 7, starting in 2nd ch from hook, sl st 6

Finish off leaving tail for sewing.

Sew the legs onto R 2 & 3 of body. See the picture above this one to see how to position his front leg. Weave in all ends.

To attach Zippy to different things, just take some extra yarn and sew the arms together. Do the same for the legs. Just imagine how cute this little guy would look hanging from all sorts of things!

And you’re done!
