An original realistic crochet amigurumi Three-Toed Sloth pattern by June Gilbank.

Sloths live in the rainforests of Central and South America. They live, move and eat very slowly, and spend almost all their time hanging from branches by their specially-adapted hands and feet.

Yarn: worsted weight yarn: less than one skein of grey/brown (approx 130m), and small amounts of beige/cream and dark brown/black

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Additional info: 

  • My sloth has a pale face with distinctive slanted eye stripes and that never-ending enigmatic sloth smile.
  • His long legs have crocheted-in knee shaping so they don't just look like tubes.
  • His shoulders and hips are jointed (I've also provided instructions for a non-jointed version) and he can hang around like a real sloth thanks to almost invisible hook-and-eye fasteners on his feet (optional, and I've also suggested alternative fasteners).
  • Note: You could brush your sloth to give him a shaggier look that would be even more realistic, but I opted to leave mine with clean lines so you can see him more clearly.

Size: approx 8″ tall (excluding limbs)

Eyes: 10mm
