Axolotl - Amigurumi pattern
When I first saw an axolotl it was in Minecraft, I thought the game just made them up. I was floored to find out they are real, and their real life counter parts are even more cute! I knew right away that they would be perfect for a crochet pattern. I create this pattern looking at images of them on the internet. In addition, I posted asking if people would be interested in the pattern for them once I had on made and come to find out people have them as pets!
This pattern has many options from the gills to the feet, making it easier for a beginner. You will love this easy amigurumi pattern for how to crochet an axolotl. This project is great for beginners and can be completed in about 3 hours. What are you waiting for?
