Happy Friday friends! I'm super excited to share this sweet little seal pup with you!

Funny enough, I have been trying to design a seal since January. It went into time out for a while and the 3rd try finally resembled what I was looking for.

My favorite part of this seal is that the fin, body and head are all made in one piece. There is little sewing involved with this pattern and the final size is only 7 inches tall.

They work up so fast! I'll be using them to stuff stockings along with the mini cow and pig!

A little while back I was asked to join other designers in the 30 Days of Cozy guest designer program hosted by Pam with The Crochetpreneur.

I knew I wanted to finish this seal pattern as I thought it would be the perfect addition to the bundle of cozy wintery patterns.

If you haven't heard about the 30 Days of Cozy head over here to find out the details and all the patterns that will be featured, there will be a new free pattern each day for the month of November! 

Also available this month is the pattern bundle of over 40 patterns for $10!

If you prefer to work with an ad-free printable version you can find one in my Etsy and Ravelry shop for just $3

You can also get it through November 30th in the pattern bundle I mentioned above, 40 patterns for $10


If you are new to amigurumi be sure to check out my Tips to Learning Amigurumi page, it's full tutorials and pictures to help you along the way!

While I made this seal pup a girl you can easily exclude the bow and eyelashes for a super cute boy version! They would also be adorable in white or grey!

I made mine with plastic safety eyes, if you intend your creation to go to a little one under 3 I highly recommend making crochet eyes like the ones here.

Christmas is only 48 days away and many of us have gifts and colorful projects on our minds!

I asked a lot of you in the Grace and Yarn Crochet Group (on Facebook) what Christmas patterns you would like to see on the blog and I LOVE the ideas.

I saw some requests for a penguin and reindeer and realized that finding some of my designs might be hard having to search through the pages. I'm hoping this post will make it easier by grouping all of my Christmas patterns together! 

I have plans for more Christmas patterns and will be sure to add their links to this post here to keep it going. Feel free to PIN this to your crochet board to find them again later!

You can also sign up for my newsletter and I will keep you updated on new patterns, giveaways and tutorials!

This post may contain affiliate links, if you make a purchase I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. These help keep the blog running and free patterns coming, thank you so much for your support to Grace and Yarn! If you'd like more information please check out our disclosures page here.

Each pattern has endless color options and with the addition or exclusion of eyelashes and bows you can boy or girl versions.

All patterns call for plastic safety eyes (with the exception of Penn the Penguin) but these crochet eyes can be used as an alternative if you prefer!

Each pattern is free here on the blog (miss seal pup is part of the 30 Days of Cozy event and can be found here!) 

You can also find the ad-free PDF versions in my Etsy and Ravelry shops.


Gingerbread Couple

A lot of my earlier designs had a boy and girl version each unique with their own outfit. I really wanted to keep that when I was working on this gingerbread doll couple! 

They work up rather quickly and their frosting details really make me want to start baking!




Patrick is ready for Winter with his nice warm sweater. Easily add a bow and eyelashes for a cute girl version. 

I've actually been contemplating making Holly the Honey Bear with the nose piece from Patrick to have a cute boy and girl version in different outfits. 

There just might be an update to her pattern or a Holly 2.0 in the future.




Welcome to Part 3 of the Crochet-A-Llama CAL! This is the last and final part!

Today we will make the arms, tail and scarf, plus make the final assembly!

If you are just joining in on the CAL you can head over here to find out all the details and the previous parts. It's never too late to join in and each part will remain here on the blog, feel free to crochet at your own pace.
