Donkey Pattern

I have a new pattern to share with you today! My little farm animals family is slowly growing, the latest addition being this sweet donkey.

Pattern: 4-way jointed donkey // Kristi Tullus (

I found an awesome yarn for this pattern - BBB Filati Full - the softest merino wool I have ever worked with. Here's the full list of materials you'll need:

  • Yarn. I used BBB Filati Full , a worsted weight merino wool, 90 m = 50 g (98 yd = 50 g) / 8 wpi / 4: medium. You will need about 75 g of gray, 25 g of dark brown and 10 g of white yarn.
  • 3,00 - 3,50 mm crochet hook (US size 3/D - 4/E) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding for stuffing.
  • 12 mm (1/2") safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Two 20 mm (3/4”) and two 30 mm (1 1/5”) doll joints or safety eyes or buttons and thread.
  • Dark brown cotton embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.

My donkey turned out about 35 cm (14") tall from head to toe, 43 cm (17") including ears, just the perfect size for cuddling. But of course you can size it up or down by picking a finer or thicker yarn.
