Free amigurumi Lemur Crochet pattern

If you would like an ad-free, printable version of this amigurumi lemur pattern including step-by-step photo tutorials you can find the full pattern HERE.

It’s been almost two weeks since I uploaded a free amigurumi pattern but I’m back with another primate pattern (check out my monkey pattern too). This little ring-tailed lemur was a lot of fun to make and looks great once finished. The pattern requires four colours of yarn; for the black, white and grey I used James C Brett Top Value DK and for the yellow I used Hayfield Bonus DK. The eyes I used are The Craft Factory Toy Eyes Solid Black – 9mm which I highly recommend as they’re easy to use and look fantastic -especially on this lemur amigurumi as they have bright yellow eyes which really stand out.

As with all my amigurumi patterns, this lemur should stand at about 4 inches tall once completed. Although it may look a little complex as is has quite a few separate pieces which need to be crocheted and sewn together, it only requires the use of the single crochet stitch so it’s an easy pattern to complete.

Assembly

For a photo tutorial of how to assemble your amigurumi lemur, check out the full pattern HERE.

Use a yarn needle to sew all the parts together. I would recommend starting by adding legs to the 6th round of the body. They sew the eyes and ears to the head. Finally, sew the head and tail onto the body.
