Amigurumi Puffin Free Crochet Pattern
Puffins are also a wonderful subject for crocheting. With their black and white “suit” and orange feet and beaks, they are every bit as elegant as penguins. In amigurumi form, their shape lends itself to easy crocheting and a fun time, especially with the kids. For the youngest ones, please consider crocheted eyes for safety.
