An original crochet amigurumi koala pattern by June Gilbank.
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in grey, plus a tiny amount of black
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Size: approx 7" tall as seated
Details: Pattern includes full instructions to make an adorably realistic crocheted koala with true-to-life shaping and poseable arms. Detailed instructions and 23 step-by-step assembly photos ensure that your koala will turn out absolutely perfectly too!
Optional: If you'd like to make the fluffy ears as pictured, you'll need a wire pet slicker brush to brush out the pieces after crocheting (instructions are given in pattern).
Suggestion: Although I didn't do this with my koala, if yours will be a toy for a child you could add some velcro or a press stud to his hands so they can grasp together and he can cling onto things - extra cute!
Eye size: 12mm
