This month’s mystery animal – Tiamo the axolotl, was designed by me – Joy of Anvi’s Granny.

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.


And yes, as usual, shout out to my talented tester, Lian from Lian2807. With her help, I have finished the Valentine Axololt amigurumi pattern the way I want her to.

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