With this clear written pattern, you can make a super cute and realistic-looking crochet wolf. This .pdf crochet pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.

Size
If you use the recommended yarn, your wolf will be 6 inch / 15 cm sitting.

Materials
For this crochet wolf you’ll need worsted weight yarn (Lètt Lopi) and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need two or three main colours and a dark colour for the nose: grey 0057 (1/3 of a 100-yard skein) and light ash grey 0054 (1/8). A little bit of oatmeal 0085 to add some colour to the face is optional. You also need a tiny amount of a black 0052 for the nose. For the eyes I’ve used 8 mm animal eyes. You will also need fibrefill and pellets for extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads). A pipe-cleaner to make the tail bendable is optional.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. All my patterns are text edited for correct English and have been tested by an experienced crocheter before publishing.

Yarn
Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.

If you feel like it, please sell a finished koala to donate some money to an Australian wildlife rescue organisation like Wires. I will donated a part of my earnings from this pattern to them.
