Crocheting the ear can be a little tiring for you. I think it is an advanced koala amigurumi pattern. However, it is explained in detail step by step. If you are experienced in crochet, you can easily complete this pattern.
You can also crochet the koala’s shorts as a bonus. In the last part of the article, I share the pattern on his shorts. I hope you will like it.

Blue Koala with Short Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Helpful hints:
1. We start knitting with an amigurumi ring.
2. When knitting a piece, use a different color of thread as a marker. This will make it easier for you to look at the symmetry of the knitting. If symmetry is broken, knit an offset loop. The offset loop is always the first loop of the row (knits like a regular sbn.), But then the second loop that follows it is already considered the first loop.
3. Knit the parts in a spiral. Do not use a connecting post at the end, an air lift loop at the beginning of the row.
4. Fill the toy tightly so that it does not lose its shape later.

We leave a long thread for sewing on the nose.

 

Tightening
Sew the nose to the head between rows 13 and 23. Without sewing to the end, fill the nose (not very tightly) and sew up the remaining hole.
Further stepping back from the nose 3 sc to the right and to the left, place a marker.

Into the hole that we did not pull together at the end of the knitting of the head, we introduce the needle and bring it out to the place where the marker is.

Then we retreat 2 loops to the left, as shown in the photo, insert the needle and bring it back into the hole. We tighten the threads, making a tightening. We tie knots. For reliability, you can repeat it a couple of times.
Then we again insert the needle into the hole and bring it out a row above the marker and insert it on the row below the marker. We withdraw the thread into the hole. We tighten the threads, making a tightening. We tie knots.
Thus, we get the threads crosswise.
!!! Make sure that when tying knots, the tightening does not loosen.
In the same way, we make a tightening under 2 eyes.
Cut the threads and hide them inside.
We glue the eyes and embroider squirrels, eyebrows and blush.

Assembly
We sew the ears to the head, stepping back from the crown of the 4 rows. Seam # 1 runs between rows 6 and 7.
Seam # 2 runs between rows 4 and 5 Look at the photo.
Sew the head tightly to the body. For reliability, it is better to walk a couple of times.
Sew the handles between 28 and 27 rows.

Now let’s get down to shorts
We collect a chain of 58 ch and close it in a ring. Next, knit 8 rows of 58 dc.
Row 9 knit 58 sc. We do not cut the thread, we will knit a strap.
We knit row 10 with 4 sc, then we knit in rotary rows of 4 sc at the end of the row we use chп. 38 rows.
Fold the shorts in half, find the center and count 25 loops on the idle, sew the middle by grabbing 4 loops on both sides.
Thus, we get 25 loops for the holoshe.
Sew the strap, stepping back a little to the left.

Have fun knitting Liam !!!!
Success!
