“Ahhh~ What a nice day to be out!” said Ron eagerly as he lay in a meadow of fresh leaves and grass. Being surrounded by nature has got to be one of his favorite activities. He loves admiring the beams of sunlight through the trees, the calm wind sweeping his face, and most of all, the smell of grass. 

amigurumi rhino

As its name suggests, rhinoceros means “nose horn.” These gentle giants are known for the enormous horns growing out from their snouts. Unfortunately, these brilliant animals are on the brink of extinction due to illegal hunting. For centuries, people from certain countries have taken their horns for medicinal purposes and status symbols. Click here to find out about what you could do to protect Ron’s extended family!

Who Is Ron Rhino Amigurumi?

Ron, the crochet rhino amigurumi, measures about 13” tall standing up and 10” while sitting. And at this size, making him the perfect huggable size. Ron can be in any color as per his creator’s preference. He’d be the best companion for children, keeping them comfortably safe and sound while they sleep.  

What Do You Need To Crochet Rhino Amigurumi?

This crochet stuffed rhino is made up of basic crochet materials and tools; 2.5mm hook, two balls of acrylic yarn in Blue (or your preferred color for your Ron), half balls of acrylic yarn in Beige, polyester fiberfill, and a pair of 10mm dome-button Eye. If you’re making Ron for a baby, replace the buttons with felt or embroidery as buttons can be a choking hazard. As for the tools, you’ll need a long darning needle, water erasable fabric marker, scissors, and pins. The amigurumi pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions on how to crochet the body, ears, horns, arms, legs, tail separately before combining and assembling them.

Who Is Rhino Amigurumi Ron’s Best Friend?

Does Ron’s little friend look familiar to you? That’s right; he’s Elwis, the Amigurumi elephant! Elwis has been so kind to Ron ever since he became a part of our animal wildlife collection. They immediately became best friends as they share many similarities; owning strong tusks and being vegetarians. Not to mention they love a good ol’ mud bath, especially during the Summer. 

Can we Dress Up Crochet Rhino?

While they are often seen running wild in their natural form, these gentle giants enjoy dressing up for simple occasions too! As we prepare the yellow overalls pattern in the picture above, you may crochet these outfits for Ron; doll bikini crochet pattern and diaper pants from the Elephant Amigurumi pattern (need some scroll down to get the diaper pants pattern there).

Is It Difficult To Crochet?

This is an Intermediate Amigurumi Project and it involves knowledge of making some crochet stitches. The basic crochet stitches you need to know are single crochet stitches in rounds. You will need to know how to sew up parts to assemble the stuffed Rhino and that’s the tedious part.

As a beginner, the steps in the pattern may throw you off, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try! With a bit of patience and determination, you’ll be able to crochet your very own stuffed Rhino. On the other hand, if you’ve made an Amigurumi from our free crochet pattern previously, you shouldn’t have a problem following the steps for this crochet stuffed rhino. Still, remember to read the pattern carefully before starting to avoid mistakes 😊 

Happy Crochet!

More Details on how to crochet & assemble the Rhino Amigurumi

  1. Crochet parts for Amigurumi Rhino and stuff them according to the crochet pattern: Body, Head, Ears, Horns, Arms, Legs, and Tail.rhino assembly
  2. Sew Eyes, Ears, Horns, and Nostrils to Head:
    a. Sew eyes at round 18, 24 stitches apart. Do not cut the yarn after sewing the first eye, instead, insert it into the head and come out from the second eye to sew another eye. Pull the yarn a little to sink the eyes into the head, knot securely. You can run the yarn through the head a few times to prevent the yarn from snapping in the long run.
    b. Sew the ears to the head, about 5 rounds at the back of the eyes.
    c. Sew Horns to the muzzle part of the Rhino, both horns are 3 rounds apart.
    d. Sew Nostrils with 2 strands of yarn.
