This pattern uses weight 6 blanket yarn. Though any yarn may be used, it is highly recommended to use a bulky weight yarn for this pattern. Use a hook 1-2 sizes smaller than your yarn calls for. This pattern is in US crochet terms.

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds and using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch is recommended. 

*Safety eyes are NOT recommended for children who are three years old or younger.

The Axolotl pictured in the pattern is made with Sweet Snuggles Lite yarn.

Bobble Stitch (bo):

If you are unfamiliar with the bobble stitch, here is how you make it:

Yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop.  

Yarn over again and pull through two loops, leaving 2 loops on your hook.

Continue these steps until you have 5 loops on your hook.

Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops. Chain 1 to finish stitch.



R1: 6 sc in a magic ring

R2: 6 inc (12)

R3: (1 sc, inc) x 6 (18)

R4: (2 sc, inc) x 6 (24)

R5-6 (2 rounds): 24 sc

R7: 8 sc, bo, 6 sc, bo, 8 sc (24)

R8-10 (3 rounds): 24 sc

Insert safety eyes between rounds 5 and 6, about 3 stitches apart.

R11: (2 sc, dec) x 6 (18)

R12: (1 sc, dec) x 6 (12)

Stuff the body firmly.
