Crochet your very own ‘unicorn of the sea’ (ie. Narwhal!). Or, if you want a whale, simply finish him without adding a horn.

This cutie is big and snuggly, measuring 17 inches (43 cm) long.

This is an intermediate level pattern that involves single crochet, colour changes, increasing, decreasing and attaching pieces.

Materials needed:

  • G US (4 mm) hook
  • two colours of worsted weight yarn (142 yrds for body; 70 yrds for belly)
  • yarn/tapestry needle
  • stitch marker
  • two 15 mm plastic safety eyes
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
