Crochet Mermaid Doll Amigurumi Pattern
I hope you enjoyed this cute Mermaid. Once you have finished crochet the tail, body, head, and arms, you can then stitch on the ‘bikini’. I used sewing thread. I also used sewing thread to stitch on a little mouth. Eyes were created by stitching on eyelids over brown felt. I stitched a little nose on by stitching back and forth in the middle of the face. For ears, I simply stitched on a looop of yarn each side.
Hair. 4 ply light blue yarn is used, however, the threads are separated which creates a curly look. Stitch on top of the head using a sewing needle. Stitch on the same way you would stitch on tassels.
Top 10 Crochet Giraffe Amigurumi Patterns (based on cuteness)
It is hard to rate crochet Giraffe patterns based on cuteness, because in my opinion, they are all so very CUTE! I love Giraffes. To me, they symbolise standing tall and obtaining what seems out of reach. Giraffes also symbolise seeing far ahead, much further than most. Giraffes are so majestic as well, with Big Adorable Eyes and Long Eyelashes. In this cuteness contest, I have found 10 Crochet Giraffe patterns that have captured the unique Giraffe gorgeousness.
A best-selling Crochet Giraffe. This pattern is one of the most popular Crochet patterns on etsy. I found it onthe Etsy shop Halline. I love it so much, it was going to be the WINNER. However, another crochet giraffe stole the throne in the last minute (see image below) :D If you like this crochet giraffe, you can purchase it here. What I like about this pattern is the gorgeous lifelike shape, the big ears, the kind eyes and smile. :)

I always wanted to crochet a Giraffe, however, when I finally did make one, it was totally by accident. I was trying to make something else. I was toying around with it (it was going to be a green succulent) and I realised I had made 4 legs and a long neck. I made the same pattern in yellow and folded it up the way pictures below will show you. Vola! My very own Crochet Giraffe. I love it so much, it even ended up on my Crochet Giraffe based on Cuteness competition. :D
Crochet Hook size 1.25 mm
Crochet yarn: Yellow 2 ply, purple 4 ply, white 100 % cotton, dark green 2 ply, brown felt.
