Mini Whale Free Crochet Pattern!

August 11, 2018

These adorable miniature amigurumis are a WHALE of a good time! (ha ha) 

 

 

It's a bit ironic that I chose the largest animal known to mankind for the smallest amigurumi I've ever made, but with every dose of irony comes humor--and these tiny creations are sure to put a smile on anyone's face!

 

If you've never worked on such a small scale, I would recommend starting at a slower pace than usual. With larger amigurumi, you can often get away with messing up a stitch or two every now and then. But because these whales are only a mere 2 inches long from eyes to tail, each stitch must be as perfect as can be to ensure the best ami as possible! 

 

This is also a great opportunity to use any leftover scraps of yarn you might have! The little whales don't require much yarn to complete, so feel free to experiment with various colors.

 

Lets get started!
