Crochet Koala Plush – Free Pattern

Crochet Koala Plush Pattern - Free Pattern by Madi Paris exclusively for The Stitchin' Mommy | www.thestitchinmommy.com This pattern was designed by Madi Paris, exclusively for The Stitchin’ Mommy

All that is missing with this koala is a eucalyptus tree! I decided to make this koala after watching a documentary on native species to Australia and being thoroughly amused by koalas specifically and how cute they are! I wrote this pattern myself so if there are any mistakes, please let me know and I will try to fix and clarify the issues. -Madi
