This makes for a 5” amigurumi axolotl, but remember you are creating magic from your hands, so you can vary the size by increasing or decreasing both the yarn weight (thickness) and the hook. Just remember to use a smaller hook than what the yarn calls for.

I’ve made a version with velvet yarn and H hook (5.00mm) and it came out roughly 11” and so so so cute! I strongly suggest trying this!
