Description

This is the original Koala pattern by cupcake from downunder.

This pattern set includes full instructions for making a crocheted koala adult worked in 8ply, double knit or worsted weight yarn using a 4mm hook, and instructions for a baby koala worked in 4ply and a 3.5mm hook. Adult measures apporximately 7inches/17cm high while baby is 5 inches/13cm depending on you yarn.

Options are for a fluffy tummy and ears or plain.
Instructions are provided in both Australian/ English and American terms. Patterns will be emailed to you in a pdf format. There are no shipping costs.

Make your koala family! The trendies would call this amigurumi. To me it is basic crochet. Most crocheted koalas I have seen look quite feral. I have tried real hard to make these little guys reflect the gentleness of the creature as found in our Aussie bush.

The gum leaf neck tie with gum nuts sets them off.

Didyaknow the koala is a marsupial NOT a bear. They have a dopey look cos of a eucalyptus high. This is one reason why Koalas don't do well outside Australia. They eat mountains of gum leaves. They are true vegetarians and quite fussy eaters. Eucalyptus leaves are very fibrous and low in nutrition. Koalas have a very slow metabolic rate which helps them maximise the nutrition from the leaves. They have a tough life and sleep for up to 18 hours per day in order to conserve energy.

All designs are fair dinkum original and are protected by copyright. Please do not reproduce my patterns or images by any means. While I am happy for you to make these for personal use, gifts and limited charity fundraising, please do not sell on the web or sell to make a personal profit.
