Sammy the Seal

SAMMY the SEAL

I created this baby seal back in late 2014 when I was trying to come up with something suitable for the upcoming winter months. When I finished this little guy, I immediately jumped into other projects without writing its pattern up. Now that spring is almost here, I was thinking about hanging onto it until next winter but I’ve been surprised by the number of ongoing inquiries regarding Sammy so I decided I had to find some time to sit down and work on this pattern for you all!

And to thank you for all of your patience and for your ongoing support of my work and designs, I would like to present this pattern to you for FREE! I can’t wait to see all the baby seals that will be made! Please send pictures of your finished seals to [email protected] and don’t forget to include your city and country!!

Happy crocheting, everyone!! XOXO, Amy

For the first piece you make, fasten of and cut the yarn. For the second piece, stop after round 9. You will now continue by joining the two pieces together. 

Rnd 10: After completing round 9 on your second piece, insert your hook into a stitch from your first piece. Draw up a loop and yarn through as you would for any single crochet stitch. This will join the two pieces together. Continue crocheting around the newly attached piece and if you keep going all the way around, you should end up with two joined pieces and 18 stitches total by the end of the round.

ready for attaching!

POM POM There are many diferent ways to make pom poms but this is the technique that I used. Feel free to experiment and find out what works best for you! Wind your white yarn around a medium sized dinner fork around 40 times. Use a length of white yarn (about 7 inches) to tie the middle of the bundle together tightly. Slide the

fork out and snip the open ends of all the loops. Fluf out the pom pom and trim evenly. You can use the tail ends of the yarn which you used to tie the bundle to now attach the pom pom to the top of the hat! Weave in all yarn ends neatly. SCARF Chain 66 in white and 2 in blue yarn [68] Starting into the 3rd chain from the hook, dc across Bind of and weave in your yarn tails

Almost done…

ASSEMBLY Stuf the head and body generously. Place the eyes between rounds 13 and 14 with 10 stitches between them. Sew the nose onto the muzzle and center it between the eyes. Sew the muzzle on neatly and carefully. There is no need to stuf it. Using your black embroidery thread and needle, sew a couple of whiskers onto each side of the face. You can add eyebrows too! The head and the body both have the same number of stitches in the openings so sewing them together should be seamless. You can position the head however you wish. (ie. instead of looking forward, you might face the head towards the side instead…) Next, position the tail against the back of the body and sew it on. You will need to fill the tail with fiber fill before completely attaching it to the body. Try to center the tail so that your seal can sit by itself without toppling. Attach the flippers next. Take note that they are symmetrical.

Put the scarf and hat on – you are finished!! I hope you’ve enjoyed making your own baby seal!
