Free Crochet Narwhal Pattern Amigurumi

Free Crochet Amigurumi Narwhal

Ned and Norah the Narwhals are the Letter N animals in my Amigurumi from A to Z series! These were made with the new Lion Brand Color Made Easy yarn which is a bulky size 5 yarn. This yarn is pretty fun for amigurumi and it makes the crochet narwhal a fun size pretty quickly. But you do not need to use it, a regular worsted weight works just fine. Your amigurumi narwhal will be just a little bit smaller (and pretty dang cute that way, too!) You may need to go down a hook size, (I recommend trying a 3.75mm or 3.5mm) just make sure your stitches are tight enough that they won’t show the stuffing! When made with the recommended yarn it will be about 10 inches from head to tail.

See the other patterns in the series here. Also, take a minute and read my amigurumi tips and tricks post. It will help a lot with all the details and how to get your amigurumi narwhal just right!
