Woody the Beaver Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Mar 29


Happy Tuesday my crafty friends, today I'd like to treat you with an oldie but goodie...

...my lovely Woody the Beaver.


You may have seen it before, since it was part of the amazing Zoomigurumi 8 book, together with other awesome 14 crochet characters.


A few years have passed since the book was released, and I thought it would be nice to make it available on my website...so I revised the pattern for you, since I used a different yarn, I made few more pictures and now it's ready for you to check and try it out!


*** You can purchase an AD-FREE PDF of WOODY THE BEAVER pattern with many step-by-step pictures on Etsy HERE.
