Little Zoo Crochet Water Buffalo

The Little Zoo Crochet Water Buffalo is such a great addition to the Little Zoo series because it brings some great red color to the table. Even with the horns, this buffalo amigurumi doll looks tough without seeming too mean to join the barn party. There are a lot of pieces involved to this doll, such as the ears, legs, and eyes, but with so many pictures and detailed instructions, it will be a fun challenge. There is also very little sewing involved because you join as you go. These Little Zoo free crochet toy patterns are such great alternatives to the plastic zoo kits that you can get at the store, or you can keep them for yourself for a great display shelf.

So cute! Lots of great photo references to follow, which is really helpful for some of the more unusual steps, and I really appreciate the lack of sewing parts on. Everything is crocheted, making the seams much stronger.

Comprehensive hardly begins to describe this wonderful pattern. The designers practically take you through every stitch in these detailed instructions and photos. In fact, I find their explanations even better than an instructional video. Download the pattern for this sweet little fellow. Even if you dont normally work amigurumi, give it a try. Its completely worth the experience

THIS IS SO CUTE! I want to make like 15 of them. His little wavy horns are the best detail. Ahh! #BestIdeaEver and #CutestIdeaEver

I have to admit I have never see no a crocheted water Buffalo before. The only time I ever heard much about them was on the Flintstones show. I think Fred and Barney belonged to the wTer buffalo lodge. I am showing my age. But this is a fairly easy pattern and I can add something to my grand daughters zoo that she has never had. Thank you
