Small crocheted gray wolf

SMALL WOLF AMIGURUMI

I wanted my next amigurumi to be a wolf because I thought it would compliment the piggy! Would be fun to recreate the three little pigs with littles with all these fun makes! I really loved how he turned out, or she if we added a small bow and some blush.

It reminds me a lot of a fox too so this would also work by just switching up the colors and using the wire brush for a fox’s tail as well!

Hope you enjoy and stay tuned for my next amigurumi make!

Happy crocheting!

Check out my 5 ESSENTIAL TECHNIQUES WHEN CROCHETING AMIGURUMI

Materials:

  • F – 3.75 mm crochet hook
  • Medium Worsted weight (#4) yarn
  • I used :
  • Gray color from Loops and thread
  • White color from Hobby Lobby
  • Black color from Hobby Lobby
  • Black embroidery floss for the nose/eyebrows (optional)
  • 2 – Safety Eyes – size 10 mm
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (highly recommend this extra piece of yarn works great) X2
  • Poly-fil – I use the one for doll making
  • (Optional) Pins to help with ears and arms placements.
  • (Optional) Blush or paint for the cheeks. Add a little at a time.
  • Wire brush to give the tail that bushy look

Abbreviations: 

Stitches:

CHchain

ST – stitch (stitch space)

Sl Stslip stitch

SC – single crochet

FLO – front loop only

SC INC – single crochet increase (2 sc in the same st)

INV DEC – invisible SC decrease ( decrease using FLO)

Other:

F.O: fasten off

MC – magic circle / magic ring

Measure approximately 8 inches tall

Read Before beginning:

  • STITCH MARKER – You will be working in rounds so keep a stitch marker close to use when working up the doll. Unless otherwise stated to CH and turn. They will mark the 1st st of each round.
  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight)
  • STUFFING – When using poly-fil make sure to use it to shape your amigurumi. For this one, you want the body and head a bit dense so it keeps its shape and looks fuller. Focusing on the legs up to the middle of the body.
  • ASSEMBLY – The amigurumi is worked up by first making two legs, joining them together, and working up the body and the head in one piece. Arms, nose, and ears are separate.
  • BLUSH (OPTIONAL)- This is optional but you could also use blush to add some sweetness to the cheeks. I use cosmetic grade blush using a dense small brush and little at a time.
  • Pattern- (EX. *SC in 8, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (36) ) You will end that round with the second step of what that round instructs. This will vary.

START HERE –

Mouth/ Nose (Snout) – Gray & Black embroidery floss + poly-fil

[small amount of poly-fil needed when sewing.)

6 SC in MC

Round 1 – SC INC. in each st (12)

Round 2 – 4 – SC in every st to the end. (12)

Sl st in the next stitch and fasten off leaving a long tail enough to sew on the wolf face. It will go in the center of the gray and white.

Embroidery nose –

Using the black embroidery thread use instructions in the photos below. Use a long enough piece of floss. Then set aside to sew on later.

**If you would like to see how I join both legs, watch the video HERE.

Pattern LEGS #1 &#2 – with Gray + White yarn

START HERE – Make 2 (Stuff as you go)

Round 1 – SC INC. in each st (12)

Rounds 2 – 9 – SC in every st to the end. (12)

[For Leg #1. CH 1 after you make the last st, leave a long tail and fasten off.]

Continue to make Leg #2. Remember DO NOT fasten off. Continue to JOINING instructions when finished with Leg #1 & Leg #2. Keep stitch marker in both.

JOINING both legs [See page 8 for visual and video link for help.]

[Both of the pieces have a total of 12 sts each + 4 sts made. After Round 10, you will have a total of 28 sts.]

Round 10 –

  • Leg #2 – Chain 2
  • SC in Leg #1 where the stitch marker is (1st st from the last round made)
  • SC around Leg #1 (12 sts)
  • SC in one loop of each of the 2 chains made. (2sts)
  • SC around Leg #2 (12 sts)
  • SC on the other side of the 2 chains made. (2sts)

Total of 28 sts made.

Continuing to the shaping of the body: (stuff as you go)

  • At this moment before finishing the head. Plae your safety eyes centered between rounds 34 & 35. Five stitches away from each other.  If you’d like to add some eyelashes I recommend doing those in the space the safety eyes are going before you add the back of the eyes to make it a little easier.
  • Take the wolf’s nose you made and place it in the center, one round below the eyes level. Approximately Rounds 30-32. With a small amount of poly-fil inside.
