I'm pretty new to crochet toys so this is my first written pattern for the ones I do make. I've been into an animal fetish lately and this is just one of the animals I am in love with. I made this squirrel from a picture I found in a Nature Photography Book. I am really bad at enhancing my creations 'personality' so don't feel you have to use exactly what I did. You can embroider, cut out felt features, use buttons, or whatever you feel with bring out your Squirrels personality.

Materials List

Cocoa Caron Yarn 1 skein(150 yds) WW 4ply
Size G hook
Stuffing (fiberfill stuffing)
Google eyes (2)
Felt (for features)
Pipe Cleaner (for legs and arms)
Hot glue gun and glue

Tapestry needle

Finished Size

4inches tall (not including ears) 2inches wide


Not important for this pattern.


Back Loop (bl) - The stitch is worked into the back loop

Marck Stitch (ms) - Move stitch marker

Weave in any loose ends

Use tight stitches

Decrease Single Crochet (dec sc) - insert in first stitch, yo, pull up a loop,insert in second stitch, yo, pull up a loop, 3 loops on hook, pull through all three loops dec sc made.

Stuffing - It is better to take a little stuffing at a time and stuff instead of taking big pieces. When you think you've stuffed enough, stuff a bit more. Tight.
