“Mooooooooo, hellloooooooo!” Can you hear it? It’s MooMoo, the cute crochet cow, saying hello to the Craft Passion family! It’s been a while since my last amigurumi crochet animal design, and I’m delighted to bring you this very huggable MooMoo amigurumi cow stuffed animal. Get the free crochet pattern below.

MooMoo cow stands about 12″ tall and sits about 9″ tall, making it the ideal size for children looking for a huggable doll.

This free crochet cow pattern also includes instructions for stuffing the limbs and bottom of the body with stuffing pellets to weigh it down. Then your MooMoo will be able to sit and stand on its own.

What do you need to crochet a cow?

This crochet cow amigurumi is made with medium-weight acrylic yarn and a 3.0 mm hook. His body is white, his nose and ears are yellow, and his hands, feet, and horns are brown. His body patches are made by cutting out pieces of felt and sewing them on with a blanket stitch. This MooMoo stuffed cow has a fiery red jingle bell around his neck for a splash of color.

Oh good, no one’s looking. I can just sniff this milk and …..slurppppp

MooMoo, the crochet cow, is a playful and curious milk cow who likes to hop and play all around the farm. Occasionally, he will pretend to be helpful by going from bucket to bucket, checking on the quality of the milk collected by the farmer’s wife from all the other milk cows. It is a normal sight to see MooMoo nosing his way from stall to stall, sniffing intently at all the milk, and when no one’s watching, quickly take a gulp from whichever bucket is filled to the brim. 

Life on the farm is fun for this crochet cow stuffed animal. He has so many things to go around and inspect – the chicken coop where Baby Chick amigurumi was born and the pen where Princess P amigurumi Piggy loves to snooze in on warm days. It helps that MooMoo is so independent too, he’s not afraid to explore every corner of the farm on his own, often making new friends and finding new hidey-hole along the way.

Just thinking about the coming cold months made this crochet cow a little low. But it didn’t last long. Soon, he was smiling again because he decided that he would enjoy today as much as he can, so he will have good memories during those cold days. “Plus,” MooMoo the crochet cow amigurumi said to himself, “Every cold season comes to an end and there will always be another warm season to look forward to. Which means, more hay to roll around in! Woohooooo!” 

And with that, off he went to look for more milk!

ch, Inv dec around, slst, ch

Fasten off. Trim near the knot. Apply tiny craft glue to the end and shape it pointy.

Slightly pull the white and brown yarn end brought from the tip of the tail, tie them closely with the yarn tail at the beginning of the tail, compress the length of the tail so that it curves a little. Knot the yarn to secure nicely.

Helpful Tips

Mark the first stitch of each round:
If you do not have a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round, you can always use a short length of yarn to do the marking. Cross the yarn across at the first stitch as your work on each round.
Pull to remove the marking yarn after you have finished the part.cow amigurumi 1

Pellets Stuffing (Optional):
Sometimes we might want to weigh our amigurumi a little heavier on the limbs or other parts of the body, you may use the doll pellets or plastic beads to do that. Just fill the tiny pellets into a small bag, sew to close the opening. I like to use socks to make pellets bag because of the stretchable property of the knit.cow amigurumi 3

How To Assembly Crochet Cow

  1. Follow the crochet cow pattern to make all the parts for MooMoo Cow and stuff them according.
    cow amigurumi 5
  2. Place the crochet cow's nose on its head just below the eyes and pin it there to keep it in place.
    Sew around the nose with a darning or tapestry needle. Before you finish sewing the nose, stuff it with polyester fiberfill to a height of about 1 inch. Once the hole is full, sew it shut.
    Make sunken points on the nose by stitching them into the head.
    cow amigurumi 6
  3. Position the ears and horns, pin and sew.cow amigurumi 7
  4. Attach the head to the body by sewing them together. I sewed the body a little off to the back of the head so that the back of the head and the back of the body is aligned.cow amigurumi 8
  5. Flatten the opening of the arm and sew it in between the head and body. Repeat to sew the other side.cow amigurumi 9
  6. Flatten the opening of the leg and sew it at the side of the body, about round 13 from the bottom.cow amigurumi 10
  7. Sew the tail to the back of the body.cow amigurumi 11
  8. Cut out some patches from black felt, sew them onto MooMoo Cow to complete it.cow amigurumi 12


MooMoo the crochet cow is special because he can sit and stand on his own, with help from some pellets or beads. All you need is a little sock bag to put them in, then position them into the limbs as you wish. 

If you think this is a little too advanced for you, try another farm animal, Mr. Murasaki, the crochet owl. He is MooMoo’s good friend and a lot easier to crochet. Both of them are fun to have around the house. 

Show me how your crochet cow amigurumi turns out. I would love to hear from you.

Hi there! I am a newbie at amigurumi. Moo Moo is just adorable! I am making this for my nephew's son. I am just a bit confused starting with the body. Does this pattern work in continuous rounds without slip stitching at the end of each round? I am on round 2. It says increase, sc 4, correct? Do that 3 times, and then do sc 4 and an increase 2 times. I don't quite see how this adds to 20 stitches in this round.

It is the same as most amigurumi patterns where you just go round and round without any slst at the end of the round. On the second round, INC means 2 sc in the same stitch; sc 4 means 1 sc in each stitch for the next 4 stitches; [INC] 3 times means that you repeat INC for the next 3 stitches, follow this and you will get 20 stitches in a round.

Thank you for posting this detailed pattern along with pictures. I had so much fun making it! I crocheted the spots for it and also added a small crocheted cowboy hat and crocheted bandana instead of using a ribbon and bell. It’s adorable! Thank you again!
