Tiger Keychain Amigurumi Crochet Pattern
Hello to everyone,
I shared the cute baby tiger amigurumi key chain pattern for you today. You should carefully read the description that you can easily make this little cute amigurumi pattern step by step. You can embroider the jumpsuit pants color of the free amigurumi pattern with colored crochet as you wish.

When the cute tiger keychain amigurumi pattern is completed, its size will be small enough to fit in the palm. The yarn color of the amigurumi tiger pattern is orange. You can use yarns that you do not use at home for the jumpsuit pants of the free pattern. We crochet the arms and tail of the amigurumi toy first. We crochet the body and head together. The mouth of the amigurumi pattern is crocheted using white yarn. The nose part is crocheted using black yarn. Their ears are small and you can crochet them right away. You can make eyes using plastic accessories. After completing the free pattern, you can crochet the amigurumi tiger’s eyebrows using black yarn. You can make black lines on the amigurumi pattern using a fine crochet. You can crochet the cute amigurumi tiger as a gift. Don’t forget to add the Amigurumi keychain to your favorite list.

Round 7: (5 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (42)
Rounds 8–13: 6 rnds total – 1 sc each into every st. (42)
In the next round, the front paws will be incorporated. Leave a distance of 11 sts between the paws. For this, pat the paws flat, and, using the ears for orientation, find the middle stitch on the body. From this middle stitch, count off 5 sts each to both sides. These 11 sts will be distance between the front paws. For the pictured sample, this worked out as follows:
Round 14: 4 sc – through both sets of sts from body and paw at the same time, too, 11 sc, 4 sc – through both sets of sts from body and paw at the same time, too, 23 sc (42)
