How to crochet a whale amigurumi

Whales – who does not love them? I definitely like those huge giants of the ocean and am very happy that I finally have one around me now. Because I want you to have such a cuddly little miniature-whale, too, today, I will share a crochet pattern for the sea mammal with you. As mostly, the pattern is done completely without sewing on single parts. So there won’t be any annoying work to do at all 🙂

Just in case you don’t know how to crochet and still want to have amigurumis of your own, just have a look at my Etsy-Shop, where I always have some cute crocheted animals for you. 

Ok, so let’s go!

You need:

up to one skein of blue yarn

small amount of light blue yarn

crochet hook, which is slightly too small for your yarn (I use 2,5 when 3,5 is recommended)

filling

needles, scissors and everything you need for being comfy while crocheting

Abbreviations

sc = single crochet

sl = slip stitch

st = stitch

fpsc = front post single crochet
