Scout The Newborn Gryphon
"This Newborn Gryphon crochet pattern is full of challenging techniques that you will love. The finished baby gryphon (griffin) amigurumi makes a great gift for kids or fantasy-loving friends. After making Toby the Newborn Dragon, I knew I wanted more amigurumi in his shape. I loved the way he was laying on his back, asking to be picked up and cuddled -- perfect to put in a basket or rock back and forth. The size and shape of this plushie reminds me of being a kid and just wanting to take care of my stuffed animals."
