Bolthus, realistic crochet ferret or polecat amigurumi pattern



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 PDF

With this very detailed pattern, you can make a super-realistic and playful ferret or polecat. You can even make your own pet! This .pdf crochet pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.

Size of finished doll: If you use the recommended yarn, your ferret will be 9.5 inch / 24 cm from nose to tail end.

For this crochet animal you’ll need worsted weight yarn (Lètt Lopi) and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need three colours: oatmeal 0085 (1/3 of a 100-yard skein), sheep black heather 0052 (1/5 of a 100-yard skein) and a little bit of white 0051. For a polecat’s nose you can use the black sheep heather but if you make a ferret you need a tiny bit of pink for the nose. For the eyes I’ve used 8 mm animal eyes. You will also need fibrefill. A pipe-cleaner to make the tail bendable is optional.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.

All of the crochet designs are adorable, which is why I bought a pattern from this shop in particular. The instructions were clear and well laid out, and I appreciated the accompanying pictures to aid with crocheting. This was my return to crochet after taking a break for a while, so the ferret I made is a little wonky but that’s all on me. Definitely will be making more to perfect the look!

Excellent pattern! Very detailed and produces an adorable ferret. I used blanket yarn and he turned out so soft and cuddly.

I've done few of SonsPopkes patterns before and this one was just as nice as the other ones. Very easy to follow and enjoyable. I am not a biggest fan of the recommended yarn so I've used some drops alpaca with mohair. I would definitely get another pattern in the future and I would definitely recommend it to everyone, doesn't matter what level of skills you on!
