This pattern features step-by-step instructions for both the adorable adult and baby narwhals pictured!

This is a unique amigurumi pattern because it incorporates a small and easy polymer clay element to give your little narwhals an artistic and polished look! If you’ve never used polymer clay -- or if you’ve never used it in a crochet pattern before -- fear not! There are many pages of instructions dedicated to the polymer clay portion of the finished product, and this would be an easy first project.

This full-color PDF is 15 pages and includes detailed written instructions with over 40 instructional photos.

Oh ho ho, it’s a little narwhal –
The unicorn of the great blue sea!
If he had legs and ground to stand on
He’d dance a jig for you and me!

Smart as a dolphin,
Loyal as a whale –
Get up, little narwhal
And shake yo’ tail!
