Floro, the red squirrel, my new crochet pattern

Rust red with a fuzzy tail and fluffy ears, Floro is a crochet red squirrel with spirit.

When I started designing this squirrel pattern, I wasn’t sure about the outcome and didn’t even managed to draw a decent sketch. It was a project of many uncertainties. And now look at the result, I’m very happy with how Floro turned out. I was worried that I wouldn’t succeed in making a nice squirrel doll. But the funny thing is, now he’s finished I think he’s the best combination of a realistic, recognizable animal, with a playful doll shape. It just worked out perfect for this squirrel pattern.

Now I proudly present the images of my red squirrel crochet pattern!

red squirrel amigurumi

This red squirrel amigurumi is made with lett lopi yarn, a worsted weight, 100% yarn. From head to toe, he’s 9 inch / 23 cm tall.

The Floro red squirrel crochet pattern is in available in my shopΒ and in my Ravelry shop. You can also order it directly from me here. With this pattern you can make a red squirrel, but with some different colours, you can also make a grey or black squirrel. The pattern is written in standard American crochet terms and contains clear instructions of how to crochet and attach the squirrel. It also contains many example pictures.

I know some of you looked forward to this pattern, I really hope it meets your expectations!

    Geweldig al jouw mooie patronen ! Deze vind ik denk ik het leukst. Ben echt onder de indruk ! Is het mogelijk de patronen bij jou te bestellen en per bank/giro overschrijving te betalen ? Hoor het heel graag van je !! Zou er graag een paar maken en dan maar hopen dat ze net zo mooi worden als die van jou ! Gr. Erica

    Hi do you have a similar knitting pattern of this lovely squirrel. I am a beginner in crocheting and am not sure I could do this pattern, although I would love to try it.
