Moomin amigurumi toy

Tove Jansson’s adorable Moomin comes to amigurumi!


With his simple shape and cuddly dad bod, Moomintroll is the perfect cuddly toy candidate. He’s hooked up in the new Novita Muumit, a new, soft DK weight yarn available in six colours, in a 55% merino wool, 45% cotton blend.


Start with the ears and arms, so you can stitch them onto the head and body as you work down the rounds. Alternatively, if you sew the ears and arms shut you can stitch them on separately at the end.
