Crochet Axolotl Amigurumi Free Pattern – Kiki

Spread the love

Today let’s learn how to crochet Kiki – the baby axolotl with my easy crochet axolotl amigurumi free pattern for beginners. My amigurumi axolotl free pattern was designed with an easy less sewing technique that helps you to finish this Mexican walking fish in just a few hours. Besides, I also created a Youtube amigurumi video tutorial for this crochet pattern. After all, Axolotl lover or not, who doesn’t love such an adorable axolotl plush toy?

This amigurumi axolotl pattern is inside my collection of Underwater animals (squid, ball fish, narwhal or whale, octopus, and axolotl). They are all very easy and fast crochet projects that you can finish in your free time. You can use them as keychains, bag charms, car hanging charms, and playsets for toddlers. Enjoy the pattern as much as I did, my friend!
