Friends, all the signs are already out there: temperatures are dropping, days are getting shorter, and leaves are turning brown. We need to face the inevitable truth that summer is coming to an end, and there is nothing that we can do about it. But wait! I might be giving you the wrong impression. I’m not saying any of this with a sad and fatalist tone; on the contrary, I think that every season has its own magic. And yes, summer’s magic involves sun, water, and many margaritas, but trust me, autumn can be just as good.
So as we dust off the cardigans, let’s not dwell on the past and start looking at all the great things that this upcoming season has in store for us. And don't worry, you are not on this alone; we are here to help! In order to make the transition easier, we have decided to compile the cutest and corkiest autumn crochet animals that will not only bring a smile to your face but will also remind us that fall is a wonderful season full of changes, movement, and beautiful colors.

These 25 fall animals crochet patterns will make you re-fall *wink* in love with autumn:
This sneaky little animal will spend most of the fall eating loads of food and building a comfy nest for hibernation. That’s right; they sleep from November to March (and here we are, struggling to achieve 8 hours of sleep a day). They are the living proof that the “beauty sleep” is a real thing because they CAN’T get any cuter!
In some cultures, it is said that hearing an owl hooting at night is a sign of bad luck. We are not superstitious *knock on wood*, but just in case, let’s stick to this beautiful owl crochet pattern, that we promise will only bring positive and joyful feelings to your life.
Autumn season means nut season, which also translates into squirrels season! Woohoo! What is not to love about squirrels and their fluffy little tails? With this pattern, you’ll have a beautiful squirrel to stare at all Autumn long, which is an excellent option since catching a real one is not only cruel but also near to impossible #teamsquirrels
The Chibi Fox
Foxes have been found to be smart and cunning, which is one of the reasons why they can adapt to so many environments, including your bedroom. This little red fox will fit in any room like a glove, so if you are up for a fun challenge, just get this pattern and crochet way!
Autumn, and especially October, is the most exciting time of the year to go into nature and try to find some deer. This is when the “rut” happens, which is when males fight each other using their antlers or horns in order to mate with a lucky female deer. It’s something very impressive to watch, or better yet, to recreate through this beautiful crochet pattern. Just bear in mind that this pattern is so cute that you’ll only be able to recreate hugs.
Italo, The Wolf
Do you know what’s cuter than a crochet wolf? A crochet wolf with a bow tie! This pattern is so pretty that you won’t be able to stop yourself from doing it once and once again, so yes, you’ll probably end up with a whole pack of them.
Flint, The Bunny
If you are looking for a gift for a child, flint the Bunny is ideal! Perfect size, perfect ears, and even more perfect sweater. Any kid would grab this stuffed rabbit and take it with them wherever they go!
Bradley, The Badger
For me, it’s impossible to read the word “badger” without thinking of the phrase “honey badger don’t care” (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, please do yourself a favor and look for the viral video RIGHT NOW). Create this beautiful crochet pattern, and I promise that you will smile every time you look at it.
Aldric, The Lovely Owl
Something that I've always found impressive about owls is their ability to spin their heads around. It's the perfect combination of creepy and cool. This owl pattern doesn't have that ability, but I assure you that there will be heads turning to take a look at it!
Their name comes from “dormeus,” which literally translates to “sleepy one.” They have this name for two reasons: they are nocturnal creatures that spend most of their day sleeping, and they can hibernate for more than six months! Let this tiny crochet pattern climb into your heart, and give him a cozy home for the coldest months to come.
Morris, The Baby Seal
As for many animals, like seals, fall is also a mating season. This is why they will approach the coast during this time, giving you the perfect opportunity for some seal contemplation. Don’t live close to the ocean? Don’t sweat it! This adorable baby seal will be more than happy to join your family regardless of the season!
Frankie, The Fox
All the wind and drastic changes in temperatures make Autumn the flu season, so we need to take extra care of ourselves during this time! Be smart like Frankie and wear your scarf wherever you go, although we are not sure that you’ll reach Frankie’s supreme style.
Finn, The Fish
Many fish, such as salmons and trouts, swim from the oceans to the upper reaches of rivers during Fall. Their goal is to lay their eggs in the cleanest spots possible so that their babies can later be born with the best chances of survival. For mating, they will usually return to the same river where they were born, isn’t that fascinating?
If you're a warm climate lover, a bird should definitely be your spirit animal. They dislike cold so much that they will fly to southerly grounds every year to avoid the chills. That would be the same as you traveling to the Caribbean when the temperatures drop. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a great deal to me!
Easy Butterfly Amigurumi
This insect is spectacular! They also migrate during fall, filling the skies with all the colors of the rainbow. It is a beautiful thing to watch! This butterfly crochet pattern is so easy and versatile that you’ll be able to create as many versions as you want to fill your life with tons of colors.
Barkley, The Beaver
Nature’s most famous constructors! This semi-aquatic buddy is among the world’s largest rodents and spends most of its time eating and building. Their cutest trait? Those adorable large teeth which Barkley here represents so well.
Rose, The Rabbit
We all grew up with a rabbit close to our hearts: Peter Rabbit, Thumper, the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, Roger Rabbit, Bugs Bunny, and even the Energizer Bunny! Let’s create this lovely pattern and let Rose the Rabbit join the clan.
Classic Teddy Bear
During the fall months, bears need to put on weight to prepare for winter, so they eat and drink nearly nonstop #LifeGoals. Are you worried about your snack supplies? It’s okay; with this free and easy pattern, you can create a fluffy friend who won’t eat any of your precious reserves.
Did you know that this adorable little beetle also hibernates during winter times? During the Fall, they will look for a cool and dry place to spend the colder season, and this is why they usually end up inside people’s houses. Don't worry! They don’t eat wood, fabric, or people; they are just looking for a place to nap 🙂
Crochet Bat Ornament
We normally associate bats with two things: Halloween and Batman; but we need to remember that these creatures of the night are way cooler than just that! Echolocation, thermoregulation, and magneto-reception are just not “fancy words,” but incredible abilities that make this little animal one of my favorites!
Elegant Crochet Butterfly
There are so many possibilities with this beautiful butterfly pattern. From coasters to garlands, and everything in between! Get this pattern and let your imagination fly as high as these beauties.
Why do we see more spiders during the fall? The secret is that they’ve been inside your house all along *insert suspense music for dramatic effect*. Baby spiders are typically born in spring, so they spend their summer growing, growing, and GROWING. And of course, when autumn arrives, they have turned into substantial black spots in your wall that can’t go unnoticed.
Meyer, The Mallard
In this crochet pattern, you won’t only have a duck, but also its ducklings (small tears of joy). It’s so simple and easy to make that we recommend it for beginners and, of course, any animal lover. Spoiler alert: Yarn and water don’t mix well together, so don’t even think about putting these cuties into your bathtub!
Baby Humpback Whale
This migrating humpback whale will be the perfect gift for any friend. This stuffed animal turns out so lovely and squeezy that it’s impossible not to love it and sneak it into your bed for a good night sleep.
Skippy, The Squirrel
Squirrels can be so hypnotizing. Their fur, the way they move, everything is just magical. I notice that when I’m walking with my dog, and we run into one, she won’t take her eyes off it until it is completely out of sight. It's like a spell! But honestly, can you blame her? Look at that cutie!
