Introducing True Blue Kangaroo! This critter reeks of Australian patriotism. The Kangaroo is the largest of the macropod family and this roo is about 30cm/12 inches tall from head to toe. If you look at the last photo you can see how True Blue compares to the Wallaby Joeys which are a separate listing.
The pattern gives crochet instructions for an adult Kangaroo with or without a pouch. Male kangaroos dont have a pouch as it is the female who carries the joey. The gum leaf neck tie sets her off.
Instructions are provided in Australian/English and American terms. Materials used include 12ply bulky/chunky weight yarn, with a 4.5mm (7) or H hook. This makes for a sturdy kangaroo which is a nice sized kids toy. By making your own childrens toys you can be sure they are safe.
Red kangaroos are found on the flat open plains, grey kangaroos prefer denser bush, and Rock-wallabies live among piles of boulders, rocky hills and cliffs. Wallabies and Kangaroos are like rats and mice in that they belong to the same family but are a different species. They are easily confused.
“True Blue” is an Aussie saying that means honest or sincere. The pattern looks just as good in natural colours.
Patterns will be emailed to you in a pdf format. There are no shipping costs.
Make your macropod family! The trendies would call this amigurumi. To me it is basic crochet. I have tried real hard to make these guys reflect the gentleness of the creature as found in our Aussie bush. Kangaroos are an iconic Aussie animal and my name sake crochet roo. I love these guys to bits.

I love this pattern and received it very promptly! Kangaroos have always been my favourite animal, and being from the States, it's so hard to find plush kangaroos, let alone a decent pattern for one. Thanks so much! I can't wait to finish him! :)
