Free Narwhal Pattern

Updated: Jun 9

Today I am able to release to you a new under the sea pattern to you! I hope you enjoy this narwhal crochet pattern as much as I enjoyed designing this amigurumi pattern. While the free crochet narwhal pattern is just the smallest size, the premium pattern offers three different sizes.


As I was trying to come up with a name for my Narwhal family, I asked some designer friends and also asked my girls. I came up with the family name of Grace the Narwhal Family. I have been wanting to name a pattern after a child that I miscarried years ago. We named her Grace, so this pattern I decided to include her with this pattern. My kids and another designer friend Trista's kids helped name each narwhal.
