Soft cotton DK yarn or any yarn that you already have
Crochet hook size 5/0 or 3mm Etimo crochet hook
Polyester fiber fill
Stitch marker: Clover Needlecraft Split Ring Markers
Tapestry needle


st(s): stitch(es)
sl st: slip stitch
MR: Magic Ring
R: Round
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
[#]: number of stitch(es) in a round
inc: increase (make 2 sc in the same space)
dec: decrease (sc2tog) – use Invisible Decrease for better result. Using invisible decrease (dec) instead of sc2tog is recommended when making amigurumi; you can’t even tell that the stitches are decreasing.

To do Invisible Decrease, insert hook through front loop of the first stitch, then through the front loop of the next stitch (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through the first two loops on the hook (2 loops on hook now). Yarn over and draw through both loops on the hook. Invisible decrease completed.

– The pattern is worked continuously in the round unless otherwise stated.
– Use stitch marker to mark first stitch in a round.
– In this tutorial I used yarn color green, dark brown, terracotta, yellow, and white.
