Free Crochet Amigurumi Lady Bug Pattern

I created this pattern, so please don’t try to take credit for it or charge for this cutie. I’m sharing it because I know I love free patterns and times are tough.

Every year I give my kids one crocheted gift for Yule (these work for any holiday or just for fun), so if you’re down on fundage but still spreading the love I highly recommend it.

You can use any yarn and any hook but I’m partial to the simply soft Caron variety. Red and black are traditional but any color works.

So have at it:
