Axolotl amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern. (Axolotl Plushi Crochet Pattern)

Crochet this adorable Axolotl with this easy written free crochet pattern
his Axolotl crochet pattern was originally not intended to be a pattern. it was a customer request for a little boy who loves the Axolotl in Minecraft! and wanted one.
In the chosen colors of purple and yellow and they wanted it a BiG Axolotl.
So I made this pattern in both a chunky blanket velvet yarn to make a plush Axolotl and I’ve made in Double knit and a smaller hook to make a small Axolotl.
Same crochet pattern just different hooks and yarn

To be honest, I made posted it and forgot all about it until all of a sudden I was inundated with requests for the pattern after it was posted online by the customer, and I was inundated with requests to write up the Axolotl Crochet Pattern. 

Prior to this request, I had never heard of an Axolotl but believe me when I say they are the cutest little things EVER. I am obsessed with Axolotl on Tiktok!  They are extremely rare and have very specific requirements and take a LOT of care.
So this is why the mom had thought a crocheted axolotl would suffice until the little boy is a little older and more able to provide the specialist care the axolotls require.
So if ANY mistakes I apologize as it was a written pattern I made it so others could enjoy it too.
I Love crocheting sea animals and my favorite EVER sea animal crochet pattern is my Crochet SHARK! he's huge! and great fun to make and play with 
Or if he's just too big here's a small keychain-size to crochet a Shark whale or an ORCA

Materials you will need to crochet the Axolotol 

  1. For the LARGE axolotl. I used Mariners Chunky Yarn 
  2. (Alternative Chunky Blanket Yarns Available ) here and a 6.500 mm hook. 
  3. Fibre Toy stuffing - BUY stuffing here 
  4. saftey eyes 

Note: I could have gone bigger with the hook but I'm a loose crocheter so I wanted to ensure there were no holes in the axolotl. 

I attatched the arms and legs as i went, place the legs equally apart then when adding the ARMS make sure you line up the arms to the legs, you may need to shift a few stitches over, to line them up but sew through ALL the stitches of the arms and bosy to seamlessly attatch 

PLEASE use a stitch marker, especially at the body and head.
