Cute Whale Crochet Pattern

I’m all about finding quick and fun projects that you can finish in an afternoon! I love my big projects, but sometimes you just got to complete something. This cute whale crochet pattern is perfect for that need. Maybe an ornament? Or just something cute to hang somewhere. I love little amigurumi like this just hanging around in random spots.

Please check out the companion pattern page that has MINIMAL pictures for your convenience.

Finished Size:

The finished size is about 2.5” tall and 5.5″ wide. Size varies based on yarn, crochet hook, and your tension.

Special Stitch Instructions:

Most pieces begin with a “ring.” Use any type you feel comfortable with (i.e. Magic Circle, chain 2, and single crochet in the second chain, etc). You’ll be working most pieces in a continuous spiral, as indicated by the MC. If your row starts with CH then you’ll be working in regular rows unless otherwise indicated.

The use of a marker is very useful if you’re not used to working in continuous rounds. It’s also great if you have to stop midway.
