I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s still fall, and so there is still time for fall-themed patterns

Of course, what says fall better than squirrels and chipmunks “squirrelling away” (sorry, had to do it!) their nuts and seeds. They are a favorite cartoon character, but also a wonderful sight to see in parks and in the backyard. Moreover, both animals are fairly easy to crochet, especially as they are made of simple, basic shapes with decorations. All in all, they are unquestionably fun to work on, but also a joy to play with for the kids. Additionally, they’d make wonderful stocking stuffers. Let’s see Squirrel and Chipmunk Free Crochet Patterns below.

Here is Oscar busily putting away his acorns before the winter. Indeed, this is probably the last of his pantry. So, this is definitely a great fall amigurumi.
