Moomin Amigurumi Pattern

Hello friends, today I am here again with a very different animal pattern. I think you will love the amigurumi pattern of the moomin character you all know. Especially with the soft yarn texture used in our crochet amigurumi pattern, a very sweet and cute moomin emerges. Although I know that our children will get dirty immediately with its white color and big black eyes, I am sure you want to try it right away. You can download the free amigurumi patterns.
