Crochet your tigers

Crochet can be an awesome craft to pick up on over this festive season, especially if you’re looking to make adorable toys for your little tigers. Stephanie from All About Ami shares her impressive amigurumi pattern with us this year, and we’ve totally fallen in love with it!

Celebrate the Lunar New Year by crocheting this adorable tiger with stripes, cute paws and long tail in a sweet sitting position! This amigurumi tiger is the perfect gift for tiger lovers and those born in the Year of the Tiger!

Go wild with your amigurumi makes! Patterns are just a guide, so you’ll be happy to know that you can always change them up to make them your own.

Making amigurumi is such a wonderful way to express yourself as people can choose different colors, arrange the limbs into different positions, give different facial expressions, embroider the stripes in various ways, and choose to include or omit the faux fur detail on the sides of the head.
