Description: Dive into the world of amigurumi with our Crochet Chubby Shark Tutorial! This free pattern will guide you through creating an adorable chubby shark plushie, perfect for cuddles and as a delightful addition to your crochet collection.

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in shark color (usually gray or blue) and white for the teeth
  • Crochet hook (size determined by your yarn choice)
  • Fiberfill stuffing
  • Safety eyes or black yarn for eyes
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors


  1. Start with the Body: Begin by crocheting the chubby shark’s body in the round. This typically involves creating a magic ring and increasing your stitches to form a circular shape. Work your way up to create the chubby shape of the shark’s body.
  2. Add Fins: Attach dorsal (top) and pectoral (side) fins to your shark. These can be sewn on or crocheted directly onto the body.
  3. Craft the Tail: Create a cute, curled tail for your shark. This can be done by crocheting a tail shape and then sewing it onto the back of the body.
  4. Make the Face: Add the shark’s eyes and mouth. You can use safety eyes for a polished look, or simply crochet them using black yarn. Attach white yarn or felt for the sharp teeth.
  5. Stuff and Assemble: Stuff your chubby shark with fiberfill, making sure it’s nice and plump. Sew up any remaining openings securely.
  6. Final Touches: If desired, add any additional details like gills or a fin on the back.
  7. Finishing: Weave in any loose ends of yarn and trim them neatly.
  8. Enjoy Your Crochet Chubby Shark: Your chubby shark amigurumi is now complete! Give it a squeeze, or gift it to someone who adores ocean creatures.

This free crochet pattern is perfect for both beginners and experienced crocheters. It’s a fun project that results in a charming and huggable chubby shark plushie. Get creative with your color choices and make a whole school of chubby sharks!
