Free Amigurumi Plush Eagle Pattern


 


Happy Friday! I'm so excited to introduce you to Eli the Eagle, our newest plush pattern release!

He works up in a breeze and with plush yarn is quite soft and squishy! When complete he measures approximately 6 inches tall.

He was an absolute blast to design and I hope he brings a spark of joy as you work on his pattern as well!

- Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round; I like to use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

- The body and head will be made as one piece.

- Yarn used in pictures is Hobbii Toucan in the shades Cappuccino and White.
