Leopard free amigurumi pattern

Here I am, continuing to share this special collection with you: the Safari crochet animals! This collection is very close to my heart since it was created especially for my baby girl, with some wonderful input from all you amigurumi crocheters at Little Crochet Farm. Remember when I asked which collection I should make for her? The majority of you voted for Safari crochet Animals, and I’m delighted to bring them to life! Today, I’m happy to announce the newest addition to the collection: the Leopard. The Amigurumi Safari Animals will feature 12 delightful crochet stuffed animals that will be released online bit by bit. And when I say “bit by bit,” I really mean it!

In the meantime, you can already check out the Lion, Elephant, Zebra, Giraffe, Hippopotamus and Tiger! They’re all beautiful crochet stuffed animals, perfect for your next amigurumi project!

ASSEMBLY

  1. Introduce two rounds of the body inside the head. Sew the head taking the second round (counting from top to bottom) of the body, and one stitch from the head.
  2. Sew the top paws in the first round of the body, leaving 6 stitches between one to another.
  3. Sew the down paws in round 10 of the body, leaving 14 stitches between one to another.
  4. Sew the snout between rounds 10 and 18 of the head. Sew the light brown detail on top of the snout. With dark brown, embroider a little nose, in a triangle shape, on the tip of the light brown detail.
  5. Fold the ears in half, making a triangle shape. Sew it in the top of the head, starting from round 3 and going down to round 8. See the images for reference.
  6. Embroider the eyes in round 10 of the head, leaving 4 stitches between them. With the same thread, embroider the eyebrow 3 rounds above the eye with 2 stitches in length.
  7. OPTIONAL: take a small piece of a light pink yarn and embroider two little lines on each cheek. One round under the eyes 2 stitches to the side.
  8. Sew the tail in round 12 on the back side of the body.
  9. Now, take a long piece of dark brown yarn and embroider a couple of small lines all around its body. When you make two lines, one on top of the other, with the length of one stitch, these messy lines will look like leopard dots!
