FREE PATTERN: Kangaroo

Amigurumi_Kangaroo_4

Last year I created an amigurumi Kangaroo to take with me while I traveled. I received a lovely email shortly after if I’d ever release the pattern for it. I promised I would, and finally (thanks for your patience Susana!) I’ve put together the pattern (after testing it by making another kangaroo!) and some instructions which I hope you’ll find useful.

Please let me know if you do end up making your own Kangaroo – I’d love to see it!

ASSEMBLY

2)      Sew onto the head the muzzle and ears.

3)      Sew the tail onto the back of the body

4)      Sew PART A of the leg to the body first. This makes placing PART B easier.
