Product details

I just can't get enough hugs from George The Koala, he is so squishy and fluffy! 

This amigurumi is a very nice cuddly toy size, and works up very quickly with a 4.5mm hook and baby blanket yarn. When made with same yarns as the sample (details below) he will measure 27cm/11inches tall and 23cm/9inch wide at the ears. Mixing the different textured yarns for the body, tummy and ear trim creates a super-huggable toy.

The pattern is written in US crochet terms with added charts for the flat elements. The main body, head, legs and arms are worked in a round and joined seamlessly to minimise the sewing. There are lots of step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and sew together the toy.  

You’ll need to know how to:

  • make a Magic Ring 
  • work in a round 
  • single crochet 
  • increase/decrease 
  • invisible decrease
  • half double crochet 
  • work in back loops or front loops only
  • chain stitch 
  • slip stitch
