Free pattern Amigurumi Origami Crane

Do you want to crochet an amigurumi origami crane?

Origami has always been one of my favorite hobby’s. And I always wanted two combine Origami and Crochet. And yes now I’ve finally done it an amigurumi origami crane! In June 2017 I was challenged by a good friend of mine: Jocelijne to try and crochet a micro crochet origami crane. I couldn’t resist this fun challenge, so after a couple of weeks of trying I’ve finally mastered it.

I’ve also decided to publish this pattern in my book: Haken met Dendennis – Geluk & Vriendjes; literally translated: Crochet with Dendennis – Luck and friends. For me folding cranes is a feeling of luck. I’ve folded so many cranes in lots of different sizes and I always left them behind in public places as a gift for others. I love the idea of surprising people with small gifts. And now I can also surprise every crochet fan with this free Amigurumi Origami Crane.

Enjoy the pattern!

It’s not like real origami, so you don’t start with a flat square and fold it. I’ve looked at a finished origami crane, and crocheted the shapes which I later sewed together.

For crochet instructions I recommend PlanetJune on youtube. Her online tutorials are very easy to learn
