An original crochet amigurumi Orca (Killer Whale) pattern by June Gilbank.

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in black and white

Hook: US E / 3.5mm


  • Although it is worked in pure amigurumi-style (it uses only single crochet stitches with increases and decreases), this is an intermediate level pattern, as it includes a lot of colour changing to create the beautiful smooth killer whale markings down the entire underside of the body. This is a pattern that requires concentration!

  • The pattern notes include bonus tips to make your colour changes look as good as possible.

  • The pattern includes full instructions and detailed step-by-step photographs with explanations so you can crochet and assemble a perfect orca of your own.

Size: approx 11” long

Eye size: 9mm
