By K W Warburton, The Reluctant Spoonie

Last year, I wrote up three crochet patterns for the Rabbit, Bear Cub and Cat Animal Crossing Villagers. One year on, I am back with two more. This time, I have free crochet patterns for the Deer and Rhino villagers.

The body, arms and legs are the same for each. You will just have to change the yarn colour when appropriate. For clothing, I enjoy using vintage fabric, but you can use any scrap fabric that you have available. Please note, that these Animal Crossing crochet villagers patterns are for people with advanced crochet skills. You can make your own Bluebear using my Bear Cub pattern
