Chubby Cat, Bunny, Bear or Pig Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

I haven’t had a pattern for a while so here is another multi-purpose pattern that can be used to make several different types of animals in similar styles. They are chubby little short cuties around 2 inches tall and could make fun little playsets for children, xmas tree ornaments, catnip toys or just cute plushies for decoration or gifts. The pattern is worked in a spiral and is fairly simple, well suited to all abilities. Ear and tail patterns from my other multi-purpose patterns could likely be adapted to fit these if you wanted to make a different kind of animal.

The set was made using a 3.5 mm crochet hook and my stash of 100% cotton worsted weight yarn.
