Koala amigurumi crochet free pattern

Hello friends. First of all, welcome to my blog. Today, I will share with you a very nice koala free amigurumi pattern. As you know, Koala is a very cute animal that lives in Australia. It is very slow and loves to hug.
It is an animal that is famous especially for its free sleep all day. In fact, it is not preferred as amigurumi. The biggest reason for this is that it is not a well-known animal. As a natural environment, it can only live on the Australian continent. Although I don’t know much about the subject, I think it’s about evolution.
Just like kangaroos, they evolved there millions of years ago. Anyway, let’s leave the scientific issues to us scientists :). Let’s continue talking about the amigurumi. Yes, friends, it is very difficult to knit the amigurumi. But when you complete, you will have a very nice amigurumi.
In this way, it is quite difficult to find patterns free of charge. So thank you very much to #bumbee_crochet. You can reach her via Instagram. She shares very nice and free amigurumi free patterns. I share the materials required to complete the amigurumi at the finish, I hope you liked it.
Finally, if you finish knitting the amigurumi, please share your picture with me. I love you all.

Charming Mr. Koala Amigurumi – knitted toy from Christina @bumbee_crochet. To create a koala, the author used hook number 2 and Alize Cotton Gold yarn. From the description of the scheme, you will also learn how to knit panties to complement the image of Mr. Koala. The height of the finished knitted toy is about 22 cm.

sl st and cut the thread, leaving the long end to be sewn on.

First, you need to calculate how many loops you need to dial for the panties. To do this, you need to make a sample of 10 loops – 10 rows and measure its length and width. I got 3 cm long. Now you need to measure the waist of the koala (I have 17 cm).

The number of panties loops is calculated using the formula.
Waist circumference * 10 / sample length
17 * 10/3 = 56.6
I rounded to 56 stitches.

Now you need to measure the distance between the legs and calculate the number of loops in the same way.
I have ~ 1.7 cm ->
1.7 * 10/3 = 5.6
I have rounded up to 6 stitches for convenience. The number must be divisible by 2.

Now we collect 56 loops and knit:
1-3. Elastic band 1×1 (3 row)
4-n. Front surface
(Knit to the length you need. I have 25 rows).

In the next row, you will first need to close half of the loops that we calculated between the legs (I have 3 loops).
Next, you need the knitting needles.
For the leg, the number of loops must be calculated by dividing the total number of loops by 2 and subtracting the number of loops between the legs.
56 p / 2-6 = 22 loops.

26.3 p-close, 22 p-knit
27-37. 22 stitches with front stitch. (I have 11 rows. You can have more or less depending on the length you want).
38-40. elastic band 1×1 (3 rows)
41. Close 22 loops.
Pass a cldecok over the last stitch and crochet 8-9 sc back to row 26. Alternatively: cut the thread and attach to row 26.

We knit the second leg.
26.6 p-close, 22 p-knit
27-37. 22 sts with front stitch (11 rows)
38-40. Elastic band 1×1 (3 rows)
41. Close 22 loops.
Pass a cldecok through the last stitch and crochet 8-9 sc back to row 26.
Close the remaining 3 loops in the 26th row.
Sew the trousers. Done!
