Moomin free amigurumi crochet pattern.

This is the free amigurumi Moomin pattern.

Hi Hook Ninjas!
I have to say that after the head was made, the rest of the body was very easy. I tried different kinds of strategies to get the shape right. I tried increasing and decreasing stitches in between rows until the shape finally took form and I could move forward to the rest of the details.

Here you can read an earlier post that we wrote about Moomin. Who is Moomin?

I am very happy with the result. I hope you like this pattern and please let me know if you find any mistake or you have doubts about it.

To make the eyes cut two pieces of white felt and two pieces of blue felt. In this amigurumi I used wood glue to fasten them in place, but if you are making this Ami for a child, please sew them to the head to avoid an accident.
Embroider the eyebrows and the ears with some black thread and you are done!
