Introduction: Amigurumi – Crochet Rhino “Piko”

Before crocheting the Amigurumi Rhino, some preparation is necessary. Here you will find all necessary information about prerequisites, materials, and size that you need. If you need help, you will find additional links in the respective sections.

Attention! Amigurumis are very cute and, therefore, not only popular among adults. Children often see them as toys, so you should be especially careful. Amigurumis that are not intended for play should be kept out of the reach of children. If an Amigurumi is meant to be played with by children, you should strictly adhere to the guidelines for toys. If you plan to give away or sell Amigurumis (license for sellers), you must strictly adhere to the legal requirements for toys and display the required CE marking.

Prerequisites

To implement this crochet pattern for an Amigurumi Rhino effortlessly, you should already be familiar with the following crochet techniques. You will find a detailed tutorial for each technique here so that you can quickly learn them yourself.

  • Crochet Chain Stitches
  • Crochet Magic Ring
  • Crochet Slip Stitches
  • Decreases
  • Increases
  • Loops of a Stitch
  • Single Crochet Stitches (US!)
  • spiral rounds
  • Turning Chain Stitches

Note! By offsetting regular increases and decreases, they become almost invisible. You can recognize regular increases by the phrase “double every … stitch,” and regular decreases by the phrase “crochet together every … and … stitch”. The stitch chart for spheres and circles might also be helpful for you.

Note! Using a special technique for invisible decreases makes them nearly invisible. Although this technique requires a bit of practice, it’s worth giving it a try.

Supplies

To crochet the depicted Amigurumi Rhino, the following materials were used. The Amigurumi Rhino can be crocheted with any yarn and the corresponding needle size. To achieve an authentic result, you should use exactly the listed materials. In addition to the materials, you will also find a list of the necessary tools and supplies here.

Crochet Hook

You will need a crochet hook with a size of B or C (alphabetic) or 1 1/2 (numeric). For converting to other sizes, the crochet hook size converter will help you. I have selected some great crochet hooks for you here.

Darning Yarn

I have used darning yarn in the shade of black here. If you cannot find a suitable darning yarn in your supplies, I have already selected some for you.

Darning Yarn

Colour: white Help? View example

Filling

For filling, I used synthetic filling made of 100% polyester. However, there are numerous alternatives for filling material. If you’ve run out of filling, I’ve prepared a refill for you here.

Pins

You’ll also need a few pins. The more colorful your collection, the better. If you need more, I’ve found something for you.

Safety Eyes

I used 2 safety eyes with a diameter of 1/4 inches. The eyes are completely black. However, there are countless alternatives for amigurumi eyes. You might prefer other safety eyes as well.

Scissors

You’ll need any scissors. It’s best to use your most beautiful scissors because it brings you joy. If you don’t have really nice scissors, I’ve picked out some lovely ones for you.

Wool Needle

You’ll need a wool needle with a blunt tip. The thickness of the wool needle should match the thickness of your yarn. You might like the set of wool needles I’ve picked out for you.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – 269 – graublau

I used yarn in the shade Grey Blue. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – white – 106

I used yarn in the shade White. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Note! I have used safety eyes here. If you have never attached safety eyes before, you can also find detailed instructions on how to attach safety eyes here. In addition to a wide selection of other safety eyes, there are also numerous alternatives for amigurumi eyes. Simply use the eyes that you like best.

Note! The specified yarn was used for the example shown here. In principle, you can use any yarn and an appropriate needle size. However, the quality of the material also affects the quality of the result, so you should avoid cutting corners in the wrong place. Also, the thickness of the yarn and the needle will influence the size of the outcome, which you can, of course, intentionally take advantage of.

Size

Here are the size specifications for the crocheted Amigurumi Rhino. The height was measured standing without ears. Please note that the actual size depends on the yarn used, the size of the crochet hook, and individual crochet tension.

Needle SizeYardageSize
Crochet Hook B, C or 1 1/2137 yds / 1.75 oz6 1/5 inch
Crochet Hook C, D or 2 1/2120 yds / 1.75 oz?
Crochet Hook E or 493 yds / 1.75 oz?

Note! If you want to change the size, you can simply use a thicker or thinner yarn with a suitable needle size. Simply doubling the rounds, rows, and stitches, on the other hand, will only result in an uneven outcome.

Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi – Crochet Rhino “Piko”

For the Amigurumi Crochet Rhino, we first crochet the head and body, and then the arms, legs, snout, horn, tail, and ears. After that, all parts are sewn together, individual parts are shaped, and embroideries are applied.

Next, we want to make the ears for the Crochet Rhino. We crochet the ears from top to bottom in spiral rounds. However, the ears are not filled so that they can be sewn flat with the yarn end to the head later.

Rhino Finish

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - free pattern - crochet pattern

After you have crocheted all the parts, the puzzle can be completed. Before you start, be sure to pin the crocheted rhinoceros together with pins to find the right positions. This makes sewing it together easier, and you can make corrections easily.

Sew Head to Body

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - free crochet pattern - pattern

First, sew head and body together with the openings facing each other. Use the long yarn end from the head and work around the two openings. If you have never done this before, the pattern for sewing together open parts might help.

Sew Snout to Head

Now you can sew the snout all around with the yarn end. It is very helpful if it is first pinned with pins, and you gradually remove them. Just before completing the round, fill and stuff the snout well.

Sew Horn to Nose

Next, place the horn exactly in the middle of the nose and sew it all around. You can also use the remaining yarn end, and just before completing the round, fill and stuff the horn well.

Sew Ears to Head

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - free crochet pattern - pattern

Then sew the ears onto the head. They are not filled, only folded flat. The open side

Sew Arms and Legs

Next, you can sew the arms just below the head. Either horizontally flat folded or articulated with thread joints, as described in the pattern for thread joints.

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - free crochet pattern - pattern

The legs are sewn horizontally folded to the center of the underside in a line.

Sew Tail

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - pattern for beginners - crochet pattern

Now attach the tail to the center of the back, as you can read under attaching small parts. Use the yarn ends and tie it horizontally around the 6th round.

Embroider Eyebrows

Finally, embroider the eyebrows with black embroidery thread or stuffing yarn. They are positioned 7 and 8 rounds above the eyes, slanting upwards on the inside.

Shape Belly Button

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - free pattern - crochet pattern

Afterward, use yarn color to shape the belly button. Horizontally stitch around two stitches at the appropriate location and pull them on the back around two stitches below the tail.

Embroider Toes

Amigurumi - Crochet Rhino - Piko - crochet pattern for beginners - pattern

Then, each foot gets 3 toes, which you embroider with white stuffing yarn or embroidery thread. It’s easiest to start with the middle toe, stitching vertically over 2 rounds until the size and volume of the toe fit. Then, similarly, embroider a toe on each side, ensuring an even distance.

Done!
