Tiamo – the Valentine Axololt amigurumi is the first design inside a cool collection named “Roly-Poly Mystery Collection” – a year-long collaboration between Anvi’s Granny and Hooked By Kati. It is my big pleasure to work with my crochet friend, Kati of Hooked by Kati, to introduce to you the cool chubby animals each month! The coolest thing: all the patterns are no-sew amigurumi designs, which are great for busy crocheters who don’t want to struggle with sewing tasks.

Each month, on the first Friday of the month, a new pattern will be released! I am so excited to show you all the fabulous animals and even more excited to see your makes from the patterns.
This month’s mystery animal – Tiamo the axolotl, was designed by me – Joy of Anvi’s Granny.
UPDATED: Earlier, the Roly-Poly collection is only in paid version, but we have got so many emails saying that they love our collection but can’t afford the premium ones.

A VALENTINE AXOLOTL TOY
Yup, the valentine amigurumi sea animal crochet pattern is a no-sew crochet project, isn’t it cool? I love axolotl and really wanna have a whole collection of axolotl amigurumi with different topics.
When I and Kati discussed which animals to crochet in the Roly-Poly Mystery, the first one that popped up in my head was Axolotl. Haha. I am a true axolotl lover. Comment below if you love the weird but super cute creatures like me to let me know.
I was struggling to create an axolotl in Valentine’s theme, and no-sew, but finally, Tiamo came out so cute with 7 hearts on her body. Tiamo’s mission is to spread love all over the world. I hope you will crochet her and help her in the mission.
With this pattern, you don’t need to sew at all! And as a print-friendly version, with more than 30 tutorial photos, I hope you enjoy my effort to make the convenient pattern as much as I can.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR THE AXOLOTL PLUSHIE PATTERN

Same pattern, but Axolotl looks so different under different clever hands, doesn’t she?
