Here’s a super simple amigurumi sloth crochet pattern for you to make. It really is very easy to make with only a few different pieces and making use of basic stitches, it’s the perfect pattern for beginners. The yarns I’ve used are Stylecraft Special DK (camel and white) and Hayfield Bonus DK (chocolate) which I think works great but, you can, of course, use any DK yarn you like.
