Included in this pattern are instructions and pictures to crochet a Hammy the Hamster using the no-sew method where ears, feet, and arms are attached in the round with SC. I have also included a text only version of the pattern for those who would like to print the pattern without pictures.

Finished Size: approximately 6” tall 5” wide ear to ear
Size will vary depending on yarn and tension used

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Pattern designed to be beginner friendly for those new to amigurumi. Requires basic crocheting and sewing skills to attach ears, arms, and feet.

Pattern is written in US terms

Pattern is worked in continuous rounds throughout

Pattern was made by yarning under rather than yarning over. Do whatever you are comfortable with! Note that if choosing to yarn over, the look and size of your finished project may differ than what is pictured.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or need help! I can be reached via my Instagram, Facebook, or email and will get back to you within 24 hours or sooner.
