Chief, crochet wolf pattern

A broader chest and cheeks, a more rugged, shaggy look. Chief has become a real crochet wolf character. He’s now the leader of my forest friends. (They are friends you know, they don’t eat each other.)

Meet Chief, my sturdy crochet wolf amigurumi.

I wrote in my last post that it was a little strange to make him, because of the similarities to Flam the fox. But I’m satisfied with Chief. He looks like a woolen little wolf doll and looks very different than the fox.

The crochet wolf has bigger cheeks because the head is wider at the bottom. Also, the light colour of the bottom of the head accentuates those cheeks. Chief’s muzzle is shaped different and points a bit downwards. His body and limbs are bigger and his tail is less pointy. That is what makes him wolf-ish. And Chief has a very sturdy accessory, a flat triangular shaped scarf, like a little cape. It makes him look very cool.

Here are some more pictures and without a scarf, this crochet wolf looks almost just as sturdy.

This pattern is for sale in my shop at Craftsy and in my Ravelry shop. You can also order it directly from me here.

Chief is 6 inch/ 15 cm when sitting. He’s made with 100% wool (a worsted weight yarn). The same kind I always use, from Lett Lopi.

The pattern is written in standard American crochet terms and contains a clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal with example pictures next to the instructions and at the bottom. In the pattern you can also find what materials you need, the Lopi colour numbers, in short, everything you need to know to make this unique crochet animal. All the additional information you need to know about this pattern you can find in the shop listings.

Have fun making this friendly wolf!

Wolf

Wolf-sketch

Because I wanted Finse to be the top post of my blog for a while, I didn’t post the wolf sketch. But now I only have to finish a few loose ends of the wolf so this seemed the right moment to post the sketch. The wolf is almost ready, needs to be photographed and I have to finish writing the pattern.

It was a bit different to make this wolf, because he’s a bit similar to the fox and I was afraid he would become too much like him. At some point I doubted to make him at all. But because I adored wolfs when I was a teenager and got some request for a wolf pattern, I decided I had to make him anyway. My goal was the make a ‘doll-ish’ wolf like the fox but with wolf proportions. I’ll tell more about him soon!
