My easy crochet raccoon pattern is designed to be simple to work up, and involve minimum sewing. The design is aimed at crochet beginners, and can be worked in a round without complicated color changes. I’ve turned the markings into complete circles for ease of crocheting, so that you can have a toy that looks like your favorite animal without leaving your crochet hook in a puddle of yarn confusion in despair. I hope I’ve pulled it off and that this easy crochet raccoon pattern looks the part but is still simple to create.

Kit list:

4mm crochet hook
Black DK yarn 50g
White DK yarn 50g
Gray DK yarn 100g
Yarn needle
Toy safe stuffing
Safety eyes

The yarns I used were Patons Fab DK yarn in Charcoal, and Women’s Institute’s Premium Acrylic DK yarn. The white yarn was some I had left over in the scrap box, so I’m afraid I don’t have a brand for it, but any DK yarn will be fine.
