Mini Whale Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Sep 23, 2023

Hey everyone! We're thrilled to share a pattern designed by our newest designer, Cheebi. This is just one of many more to come, so stay tuned. Their patterns are just adorable, and I'm honored to be publishing them on Love & Crochet.

Aside from myself, this is the second designer we've worked with so far. If you haven't already, check out the pattern we posted last week with our other pattern designer, Bloomalotl, as well! It's a little kitsune fox plush 🦊

You can also publish a pattern at Love & Crochet—just send us a message here and we'll get back to you ASAP 😊

That's it for now, let's get into the pattern!
