This is the original Australian wallaby joey pattern by cupcake from downunder. Steal my ideas or images and you will suffer the curse of the great red kangaroo!

Didyaknow the wallaby is smaller than a kangaroo, but from the same family? These are rock wallabies and are having fun with their boomerangs playing in the rocks. Call them kangaroos if you prefer! There isn't much difference in the joeys as they are all pretty cute and innocent looking. Yep this is a fair dinkum crochet roo!

This pattern set includes full instructions for making a crocheted wallaby joey worked in 8ply, double knit or worsted weight yarn using a 4mm hook. These little guys measure approximately 7inches/17cm. Instructions are also given for a boomerang for them to play with. What else would a joey keep in their pouch?

The pattern can also be worked in a 3ply yarn and a 3.5mm hook for a smaller joey arround 5 inches/13cm depending on your yarn.

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 wallaby family! The trendies would call this amigurumi. To me it is basic crochet. 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 sets them off.
