Hi again! A new week and a new free pattern is here. 🙂 This time, we’re taking it to the outback with this super cute free amigurumi koala crochet pattern! When I get designing and stitching out my own patterns, names for my little crocheted creatures just sort of come to me. So far, we’ve had Lily the Llama and Walter the Whale. Now let me introduce..*drum roll* … Kimmy the Koala Bear! She’s spunky, adorable, and easy to stitch up. Let’s get started!

Attaching pieces & finishing Kimmy Koala

1. Attach nose to head area. (You may lightly stuff if desired before sewing)

2. Attach arms to the sides of the body, lining up the tops of the arm openings to the neck area of the koala.

3. Attach legs to the bottom of the body. (Alternatively, you can attach them to the lower sides of the koala if you prefer to have her in a standing position!)

4. Sew one ear front to an ear back, lining them up with the wrong sides together. Repeat for remaining ear front and back pieces. Attach ears to the top of the head.

5. Attach tail to the back-bottom area of the koala.

6. OPTIONAL NAILS: For each nail, insert your hook into one of the BLO stitches for the arms and legs and attach the yarn. CH 2, SL ST in same st & bind off. I put three nails onto each limb for my koala.
