The newest member of the amigurumi collection is this little rhino. This crochet pattern is completely free and really easy to make. It’s one of the simplest amigurumi patterns I’ve designed so it should be really quick to work up.

You’ll only need two colours of yarn, grey and little bit of white for the horns. I’ve used James C Brett Top Value DK but you can use any DK weight yarn you like. For the eyes you don’t have to use plastic ones as I have, you could use some black yarn to embroider some but I highly recommend The Craft Factory Toy Eyes Solid Black – 9mm if you want to use plastic eyes.
