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.
