Growing up we always had pet from dogs, horses, fish, geckos, barn cats to the week we had a chipmunk. So many fun memories with them all. I love to see my kids experience this same excitement. However, it isn’t always easy to get them what they want. For example, my daughter really wanted a guinea pig for Christmas this year. We compromised and she got a toy guinea pig in her stocking. She thought it was cute and was thrilled I just wish I would have crocheted her one. So in hind site I found some of my top picks for Free pet amigurumi crochet patterns.
I hope that you find one, two or three that you absolutely love. Each one of these crochet designs brings a smile to my face, and my daughters. She sat next to me as we browsed for the cutest crochet designs. So, if you have a young one in your life who has been begging for a pet to love and you are in a situation where you cannot provide one, check out these cute options.
Plan ahead this year, April 11th is National Pet Day, and I am sure that getting one of these cute ami’s would put a smile on someone’s face. Or, if you are in the market for an actual pet to love, here is a great article on The Top 13 Low Maintenance Pets for Kids, click HERE.
