Emmet The Emu

Emmet The Emu amigurumi pattern is the perfect crochet pattern for bird lovers.

Skill Level: Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Emmet The Emu is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. We suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Emmet The Emu is crocheted in worsted weight yarn is approximately six inches tall.  Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!
