This is a great amigurumi pattern featuring the endangered Malayan Tapir (Tapir indicus), an endangered species from the islands of Malaysia. They are related to rhinos and horses and though they have a bold bright body pattern it actually serves as camouflage in the rainforest. This pattern is a nice easy beginner pattern that works up quickly in about 2 hours total. You will be making the mini blanket 4 hoof corner covers ,a head, ears and the snout. You will need white, and black yarn, 8mm eyeballs, stuffing and an embroidery needle. Lots of explanatory pictures and tips and tricks inside! Sewing tips and diagram for making an easy granny square included. Babies will love the contrasting colors!

This is a PDF file, not an actual tapir or a paper pattern.
