Cedric The Sloth enjoys the easy life. He hangs out here and there, always with plenty of things filling up his tummy… Add a touch of cute to your shopping trip with this quick-to-make sloth!

This pattern is written in US crochet terms, with assembly diagrams and in-progress photos for smaller details. There are step by step photos detailing how to begin crochet, a guide to assembling the parts and finish the object.

  • make a Magic Ring
  • work a round
  • work in a row
  • basic crochet stitches (sc, dc)
  • increase & decrease
  • chain stitch
  • slip stitch.

Finished sloth shopper will measure around 46cm/18” tall (including straps) and 28cm/11” wide when made in Noro Silk Garden with 5.00mm hook. You will need around 80g of main colour yarn and 20g of contrast colour. The pattern can be easily adapted to make a larger size bag too.
