This pattern is for an amigurumi Niffler. Pattern is 9 pages long and includes photo tutorials for stitches and assembly and a link to a stitch tutorial video.

The Niffler is a mischievous creature, who has a tendency to steal and hoard gems, gold, and anything else shiny it can find. I would suggest keeping this fellow away from your jewelry box.

Easy/Intermediate pattern. Need to have knowledge of chains (ch)s, single crochet (sc), increases and decreases, and amigurumi part attachment. Knowledge of loop stitch useful, but an eagerness to learn is a great substitute.
