Zebra Amigurumi – Free Crochet Pattern

Loving by nature, ZeeZee loved to romp around in the pasture with the other four-legged amigurumi stuffed animals. He lives in the countryside, in a village that is nestled in a valley. The village is always cool because it’s surrounded by three mountains. It’s also very peaceful there, all amigurumi animals live together and love helping their neighbors out.

Now, it’s the weekend and ZeeZee the crochet zebra amigurumi sat next to a little stream at the bottom of the mountain. The water was mountain-cold, brrrrrrr but ZeeZee loved it, especially when he stands in the shallows with all four hooves in the stream. He loved the feeling of the cold water in his toes while standing in the sun because it’s a mix of cold and warm. He felt so fresh and energetic and was looking forward to galloping with his cousin Ziggy later in the afternoon. In fact, he was waiting for Ziggy right at that moment and wondering why he wasn’t here yet. But he didn’t mind waiting, as he could enjoy the cool mountain stream a little longer.

A few minutes later, Ziggy was heard trotting up behind him. But he was not alone. Close behind him were Hessy and the horse amigurumi family, all neighing happily. They shook their manes in greeting ZeeZee and started drinking from the stream too. More footsteps were heard and soon, they were joined by more of the amigurumi toy family. Gem and Guy the amigurumi giraffes came strolling by, and they too stopped by the stream to stretch their necks out for a long, cool sip.

“This is how it should be,” ZeeZee told Ziggy. “All the amigurumi family together in our favorite place on a beautiful day. I’m always happy when we’re all together with our friends and neighbors.” Ziggy was also very happy to see the rest of the animals from the valley. Most of all, he was happy to spend the whole weekend with his cousin, whom he loves like his own brother. Many people think they are brothers because they look so much alike, except Ziggy is a little smaller and he is still a foal, while ZeeZee the zebra amigurumi is all grown up.

Just as he spoke, Elwis and Elyra the elephant amigurumi join the group at the stream.

“Have you heard?” they asked ZeeZee. “A new neighbor is coming soon.”

“Oh really?” ZeeZee asked in surprise. “Do you know who?”

Elwis and Elyra shake their heads and their trunks waved languidly too. “No,” they answered. “But we hear the new cottage at the foot of the mountain will be their new home. Isn’t that exciting?”

“Oh yes, we love it when our neighborhood grows. More animals here means more new friends,” said ZeeZee gleefully. “That’s absolutely perfect”.

And everyone smiled in agreement. ZeeZee the zebra amigurumi felt like his weekend just got a whole lot brighter. Making a new friend is always exciting!

ZeeZee is a 14” long Zebra Amigurumi, he’ll not only make a perfect couch and table-top decoration for the family room, but kids will also definitely love to hug and cuddle him

ZeeZee zebra amigurumi has a cousin named Ziggy, who is a little smaller and he is still a foal.

Materials

Zebra

Foal

Tools

  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Fabric Glue
  • Darning needle
  • Long Sewing Needle (about 2") and strong thread (to sew button eyes)
  • 4" Cardboard (for winding the yarn for the mane)
  • Fabric marker (water erasable)
  • Scissors
  • Pins

Instructions

  1. Crochet all parts by following the crochet patterns stated below. 
  2. Stuff the parts as instructed.
  3. Wind yarns on the 4" cardboard. Cut about 70 strips of 4" long yarn from black and white yarn respectively to get a total of 140 strips to make the mane of zebra.
  4. Sew button eyes for adult zebra and ears to the head.
  5. Sew body to the head followed by sewing arms, legs and tail to the body
  6. Fasten mane to the zebra with the strips cut in #3.


Note: Since we are making stripes by alternating the rounds with Black and White color yarn, using a jogless color change is advisable for a more professional look. There are different ways of doing the jogless stripe in amigurumi, if you are new to this, I am using the jogless method from this video.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE ZEBRA AMIGURUMI

Cut Yarn Strips for Mane

zebra maneFor each black and white color of yarn, wind 35 rounds of yarn on the 4" cardboard. Cut both ends to make about 70 strips of 4" long yarn for each color.

The amount is only an approximate, you can add more if you prefer your zebra has a fuller mane and vise versa.

Sew Eyes

zebra eye 1zebra eye 2For zebra amigurumi, the eyes are sewn-on button (10mm black domed button). The eyes are sewn at Round 24. The distance between 2 eyes is about 24 sts.

Place the head so that the mouth is pointed downward. Mark the top centerline of the head, at Round 24 count 12 stitches to the left/right to sew the first button eye. Use a few strands of strong thread, and a long needle. After knotting the first eye, insert your needle onto the head and come out from the second eye's position. Pull the thread to sink the button eye deep into the head, deeper than what you prefer. Knot the thread on the second eye before sewing the second button eye. The second eye will sink into the head as well due to the tension of the thread. Sew the thread back to the first eye and knot, this is to further secure the indentation of the eye. You may use a tapestry needle and yarn to sew if they can pass through the hole of the button.

Stitch On Ears

zebra head 1zebra head 2Mark the ear positions as shown in the picture, start from round 32 and 12 stitches apart, extend the diagonal line to Round 37 and 8 stitches apart.

Pin the ear on the marking and stitch around the base of the ear to the head to complete the assemble. Repeat the same to the second ear.

Sew All Parts To The Body

zebra assemblyYou have Head, Body, Arms, Legs, Tail, and Mane Strips to make the final joining up.

Sew Head To Body

zebra assembly 1zebra assembly 2Mark about 3 sts x 14 rows at the center bottom of the head. Mark the same to the body from the top center to the front side of the body. These are the joining part of the head and body.

With tapestry needle and yarn, sew to attach the head to the body. The head is tilted to the front.

Sew Arms And Legs To The Body

zebra assembly 4zebra amigurumizebra assembly 3Place the arms between the head and the body, stitch around to join them to the zebra amigurumi.

Next, Stitch the legs at Round 14, about 18 sts apart.

Lastly, stitch to attach the tail to the back of the zebra.

Mane Installation

zebra assembly 6zebra assembly 7zebra assembly 8Mark the mane position of the head, it is about 4 stitches wide, straight down to the back of the head.

These pictures show how to fasten the yarn strips to make the mane. Note that only the stitches between the top and the bottom row are fastened. Install the mane with the same color yarn as the stripes of the zebra amigurumi.

zebra assembly 9This is how the mane of the zebra amigurumi looks like after 4 rows.

zebra assembly 10Continue to fasten until you have reached the joint where the body is.

Optional: 1. You may trim the mane a little shorter if you prefer. 2. Use fabric stiffener to make the mane standing up straight.
