Winnie the Pooh Pattern

Winnie the Pooh and friends were some of my favourite characters when growing up. From furry diaries to carpets and blankets, it had to be Winnie the Pooh themed. So of course I had to recreate some of these loveable characters as amigurumis. They are all designed with chenille yarn to make them extra squishy. (It’s important that you use the yarns listed below or I can’t guarantee that the result will be the same.)

Please note, this pattern is for personal use only.
