Free Amigurimi Pattern: Baby Gator

I love amigurumi, and am often crestfallen when I discover that the adorable pattern in an amigurumi thumbnail turns out to be – *sob!* – crochet. So my girl Anna Hrachovec (ok, I don’t know her & have never met her, but if she’s creating knitted amigurumi patterns for me to snarf up, she’s my girl) has graciously let her knitted Baby Gator amigurumi pattern be available to us as a free download:

I’m actually going to make this for my husband for Father’s day instead of a craft. I’m thinking that it can sit on his desk at work and make him happy a little.  🙂
