This pattern is available from for $3.00.

Please note this is NOT a complete pattern: this is an EXPANSION PACK for my Sloth (three-toed) pattern. It includes all the modifications required to crochet a Two-Toed Sloth.

Size: approx 8” (20cm) tall (excluding limbs)

Yarn: worsted weight yarn: less than one skein of tan/light brown (approx 120m), and small amounts of cream/beige and medium/dark brown.

Hook: E US/3.5mm crochet hook

Additional info:

  • My two-toed sloth has a pale head with a darker face and nostrils crocheted into the muzzle.

And, as with the original Sloth:

  • His long legs have crocheted-in knee shaping so they don’t just look like tubes.
  • His shoulders and hips are jointed (I’ve also provided instructions for a non-jointed version) and he can hang around like a real sloth thanks to almost invisible hook-and-eye fasteners on his feet (optional, and I’ve also suggested alternative fasteners).
  • Note: You could brush your sloth to give him a shaggier look that would be even more realistic, but I opted to leave mine with clean lines so you can see him more clearly.

The last 2 photos of this listing show both sloths together.

You can buy the Three-Toed Sloth pattern together with this expansion pack at a reduced price here.

Or if you already have the original Sloth pattern, the pattern link on this page will let you buy just the Two-Toed Sloth Expansion Pack.

What is an Expansion Pack?

  • An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
  • The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
  • You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone - you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.
