This little badger amigurumi looks great alongside my previous patterns, the fox (found here) and the wolf (found here). It’s another really easy pattern which uses DK yarn – here I’ve used James C Brett Top Value DK, of course you can use any DK yarn you like, you’ll need three colours – black, grey and white.

The eyes I’ve used are The Craft Factory Toy Eyes Solid Black – 9mm which I think look great but you don’t have to use them. You could easily embroider some eyes using left over grey yarn. I also recommend not stuffing the head too much as I think it looks better if it is slightly flattened.
