It’s Day 9 of our 30 Days of Cozy and today’s free crochet pattern is brought to us by Stephanie of Grace and Yarn. I’ve been admiring Stephanie’s work for months now. Her designs are playful, bright, and filled with the whimsy of childhood and this amigurumi seal pup crochet pattern is no different. Any little girl or lover of marine animals would delight to find this lovely stuffed seal under the tree this season and Stephanie adds a sweet, feminine embellishment with a darling little bow. It’s the perfect finishing touch.

PATTERN DETAILS

    • Skill Level: Beginner/Easy
    • US Terminology
    • Gauge is not necessary for this project, your finished seal pup will measure approximately 7 inches tall.
    • No matter your skill level, I always suggest that you read through the pattern from beginning to end before beginning your work just to be sure you don’t have any questions that might cause frustration in the midst of your project.
    • We will work the tail, body and head as one piece and will be working in the round. I recommend using a stitch marker at the beginning or end of each round.
    • Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched.Pattern Stitches Used:If you intend to make this sweet seal pup for a little one under 3 I recommend making crochet eyes instead of the plastic safety eyes.
