The 25 Most Huggable Crochet Stuffed Animals

Adriana Maronese  - January 12, 2021

The animal kingdom is a wild and dangerous place, and at the same time absolutely fascinating. There are so many interesting creatures out there, with different shapes, sizes and colors that make this planet so beautiful to live in. Our curiosity about other species starts when we’re kids and during our life that feeling grows into admiration. Actually, I think I have never met a one single person who doesn’t like any animal at all.

Lately, mostly due to the confinement, I’ve spent some time watching animal documentaries. It’s so incredible to see how many beautiful animals there are in our world! So as a way to honor the diversity of our planet, I’ve decided to create a compilation with all my favorite crochet stuffed animals. I’ve gathered projects from all around the web! Hope you enjoy it!

Check out my top 25 favorite crochet stuffed animals!
