The newest amigurumi pattern from Hooked by Kati is Spirit the Wolf. Howling with his head held high, this softie wolf is full of attitude and ready to snuggle. He would make a great addition to a forest themed nursery or would be a lovely item for a wolf sanctuary fundraiser.

I’ve been asked on several occasions to design a wolf, and I was very happy to finally find a gap in the design schedule to fit it in. I remembered a T-shirt a friend of mine had back when we were kids. It depicted a howling wolf on a cliffside with a big moon behind him. With that image in my mind, I started on Spirit.

Construction

Spirit is constructed from the nose down. The chin is worked in without sewing and his legs and body are formed by branching into a tripod, similar to Babineaux and Anduin.

This wolf has some of my FAVORITE feet I’ve done, and the testing group agrees! They are clunky, with big toes and they are worked directly onto the front feet. The back feet has separate, equally clunk-tastic toes that are sewn on to the end of the hind legs.

This pattern doesn’t use any safety eyes — since Spirit is howling at the moon, his eyes are shut. However, if you wanted to add them, you could do so before the branching section. But he’ll need eyebrows…like, he’ll really need eyebrows.

The branching of the body and legs is where the Premium Pattern will be most important. It will be very helpful to have the tutorial photos for that section, as you will be splitting the body into two legs and a torso with chains in between.

This pattern is also available as a Premium Pattern! Premium Patterns are ad-free, printable .pdf files, professionally formatted and edited, with extra tutorial photos not available in the free version, and print-only perks, like checkboxes for every round*!

Premium Patterns are available in the Hooked by Kati Shop, Ravelry, and Etsy.

Pattern Notes

  • Work in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch unless otherwise specified by the pattern.
  • For best results, assemble parts in order as directed.
  • Weave in attachment ends at very end of project in case pieces require repositioning.
  • Rounds labeled “Short round” are worked back and forth and will end before the round is complete, leaving stitches deliberately unworked to be worked in later rounds as instructed.
  • When instructed, an additional sc(s) will be added at the end of a round to move the starting stitch of the next round to the left (clockwise). This does not change the stitch count of the round. It only moves the starting point. At branching point of torso, instructions are written assuming the artist left the carried working MED yarn attached.
  • Artist has the option to cut MED yarn before working legs and using sc join to begin torso if they did not carry the yarn through the neck.
  • When curving torso, 15 unworked sts from Rnd 64 should be centered behind legs. If necessary, move starting st of Rnd 64 to make sure unworked sts are even behind the legs.

Hind Leg Attachment

Sit body on a flat surface like a tripod. Hold hind legs to body so that the starting rnd of the Thigh touches the last st of Rnd 65 (the longest short round). The point of the back leg should stick out behind the body and the Lower Leg should be flat along the ground. Using pins, mark where the Thigh touches the body around the Thigh, making sure to pin around the very edge of the Thigh when flattened against the body. This will help stretch the leg so the attachment is more smooth.

Mark both leg attachments with pins before sewing to ensure the legs are symmetrical on either side of the body.

Using the pins as a guide, sew the Thighs to the body, leaving the Lower Leg loose.

Hind Toes

Bind off leaving long tail for sewing.

Wrap toes around the end of Hind Foot, being careful not to stretch out the toes too much. They should match the front toes as much as possible. Using the finishing tail, sew the Hind Toes to the Hind Feet. Optional: Stuff toes very lightly before finishing attachment.

Using sewing tail from Blaze, sew Blaze to face, making sure to pull tight so the Blaze doesn’t bulge.

Count down 2 sts, right 2 sts and place pin 3. This pin should be 2 sts from blaze as well. Count down 1 st, left 1 st and place pin 4. This curve should follow the curve of the blaze.

    On the head and chest part, from round 37 why is the colours moving sideways? On one round you chrochet 12 with Soft and 29 Med, the next round 13 and 28…so on and on. I remade that part twice but the result was stil not good. Is there something wrong in the pattern maybe?
    The toes also point to the right and not forward….help please

      Mine is turning out like that too! Seriously wondering what’s going on. 🤔 Did you figure out why it’s doing that?
