Axalotl Amigurumi

Hello to everyone,

Today we share one free amigurumi crochet pattern again for you. As you know we share new amigurumi free patterns every day. The main crochets are amigurumi gazelles, amigurumi bears, amigurumi pola, amigurumi pandas, amigurumi penguins, amigurumi giraffes, amigurumi llama, amigurumi pigs, amigurumi bunny, amigurumi clowns, amigurumi lambs, amigurumi bees, amigurumi unicorns, amigurumi dolls, amigurumi foxes, amigurumi penguins, amigurumi dinosaurs, amigurumi elephants, amigurumi hippos, amigurumi monkeys, amigurumi cats, amigurumi dogs and more …

Today I’m going to show you a free crochet pattern for the axolotl, a small pink salamander unique to Mexico.  The axolotl is made in 4 parts: the body, fins, legs, and gills. I used worsted weight yarn (Knitpicks Mighty Stitch in blush, and conch) with a 3.5mm hook. All parts were made in blush (light pink) except for the gills. The finished salamander measures about 10 inches long and 2 inches wide.

I would like to thank Suvy Geary, the real owner of this free amigurumi pattern. You can find other free amigurumi patterns on our site here. Let’s start 🙂
