Amigurumi Sloth free crochet pattern.

Hi Hook Ninjas! Have you seen how adorable baby sloths are? This crochet pattern will guide you through the steps to make an easy amigurumi baby sloth. This is a intermediate pattern which means that it has other shapes than the sphere and that it requires some detailing.

You can use this Amigurumi baby sloth as a key chain, to hug your curtains or napkins on the table, as a baby toy, you name it!
