Raccoon crochet free amigurumi pattern

Make this cute raccoon amigurumi crochet toy. Free amigurumi raccoon pattern.

Just a very quick text-only-pattern if you want to make your own lil racoon. You should have some experience with amigurumis as I don’t explain the steps too well. But if you made a few before, it should be pretty straight forward.


–  cotton yarn; small amounts of black, grey and white (/offwhite) I used Catania (50g/125m)
– hook size 2.5
– needle
– safety eyes: I used 7.5mm (with colors as all black would be hard to see)
– polyester filling

MR=magic ring, sc=single crochet, hdc=half double crochet, dc=double crochet
inc=invisible increase, dec=invisible decrease

– Ears (make 2): With black: R1: MR, 3sc, 3dc, 3tr, 3d, into ring, sl st to first. Break off, weave in ends. With grey yarn: R1: same as black. Place the black on top of the grey, continue with grey yarn and crochet together like this; R2: 5sc, 2hdc in next, (dc, tr, dc) in next, 2hdc, 5sc, sl st to first. (for a simpler version just skip the black)

– Hood: With grey – R1: 6sc in MR
R2: (inc)x6 (12)
R3: (sc, inc)x6 (18)
R4: (sc, inc, sc)x6 (24)
R5: (inc, 3sc)x6(30)
R6: (6sc, inc, 3sc)x3 (33)
R7-12 (6rnds): 33sc (33)
R13: (dec, sc3)x3, in next 3sts;(hdc in one st, 3dc in  the same st, hdc in 1st), sc, dec, sc2, (dec, sc3)x2 (29)
Break off, leave a little tail for attaching hood later.
