Robbie the Raccoon Amigurumi

Crochet a very cute raccoon with this free raccoon crochet pattern. You can crochet him with any yarn that you like, make sure to use the smallest crochet hook recommended on the label of the yarn.
Size raccoon made with sport weight cotton yarn: 11 cm / 4 inch.

Robbie the Raccoon greatest wish is to be able to fly. Sometimes he gets into big trees and jumps out of them to try to fly. But he always fails. Luckily his friends always save him from a hard fall.
After his last jump he decided that it’s a better idea to just look at the birds from a high tree instead of trying to fly himself.
