Bonds the Scarfie Sloth

For a while now, I have had this urge to enter the realm of Crochet Wearables, but the more I try to come up with a fashion piece, I just get more frustrated and nothing looks the way I want. It's not something I'm entirely passionate about right now. So I thought of a compromise, why not a wearable Amigurumi? And that is how I came up with this scarf pattern! Lion Brand Yarn were so generous to help me with yarn support on this piece, so a huge thank you to them!

Here you can find the free pattern, please find me on Instagram (@knot.bad) tag me and show me how it turned out! :)
