Crochet Yak Pattern

This sweet little yak amigurumi is the letter Y animal in my Amigurumi A to Z series! He is about 11 inches tall, and made with some of my favorite amigurumi yarn, Red Heart Hygge! (his shaggy mane and horns are my fave!) I hope you enjoy making him!

You will need:
Approx 180g Red Heart Hygge in Rust
Approx 50g of Ivory worsted weight yarn (I used I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby)
Crochet Hook in Size 4mm
Tapestry Needle (I recommend a large one for the bulky yarn.)
Polyfil
12mm safety eyes
stitch marker

Abbreviations
SC- single crochet
SC INC- single crochet increase (2 SC in each stitch)
INV DEC- Invisible decrease (put hook through the FRONT LOOP ONLY of two consecutive stitches [two loops on hook] Yarn over pull through both loops. [two loops on hook] Yarn over pull through two loops)
Magic Circle- Make a loop, leaving a long tail to work with. Insert hook in center of loop, yarn over and draw up a loop. Yarn over, pull through to make the first chain (this does not count as a stitch!). Continue to crochet over the loop and tail with the number of stitches called for. (If you need 6 SC, then crochet 6 SC inside the ring.) Pull the tail to close the circle.

Slip stitch in the next 3 stitches. Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew on to the face. Get a long piece of brown yarn. Sew two little snout lines with dark brown yarn. When you are ready to attach it, the bottom of the piece will be on row 27 and the top about row 35. Use pins to attach it. Sew it around and lightly stuff it.

Fasten off and sew the bottom edges together. Pin the ears directly under the horns and sew on.

Attaching the Hair
I begin by cutting yarn about 5 inches long. It was about perfect to wrap the yarn repeatedly around my hand and cut it at one end. Put your hook under one of the stitches at the top of the head. Put the ends together so that it is halved, and put the end loop on the hook. Pull it through. Go through the loop and pull the ends back through and tighten it. Repeat until the area between the horns is filled. Pull the threads of the yarn for a more curly cue look.
