This written crochet pattern includes all the instructions needed to make a cute small donkey. Arms and legs are attached using doll joints (or buttons and yarn) to make them movable.

Includes one PDF file, 18 pages.
Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.


21.5 cm (8 1/2”) from head to toe, 26 cm (10 1/4”) including ears, when crocheted with DK weight alpaca and wool blend and a 2.50 mm hook.


3: Intermediate – includes some less common crochet techniques and color changes.



  • Yarn. I used DROPS ‘Lima’, a DK weight alpaca and wool blend, 100 m = 50 g (109 yd = 50 g) / 8 ply / 11 wpi / 3: light. You will need about 35 g of gray, 3 g of white and 12 g of black yarn.
  • 2,50 - 3,50 mm crochet hook (US size 2/C - 4/E) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • 8 mm (1/3”) safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Two 12 mm (1/2”) and two 15 mm (3/5”) doll joints or safety eyes or buttons.
  • Black cotton embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.
