Mister Walrus Free Crochet Pattern




Summer is around the corner and it's time to bring some summer vibes into our crochet projects!


I designed this cute Walrus crib toy some years ago...but I thought it was about time to take it out of the drawer and give it a new fresh look.


...and if you wanna make it even more fun for your little one, just insert a little rattle into it and it's going to become his/her favorite crib companion!
