Cute Axolotl Yarn Crafts

Posted on


The axolotl is a very cute type of salamander, named for the Aztec god of fire and lightning- Xolotl. They are typically pinkish with upturned mouths that resemble smiles. These are some knitting and crochet patterns that do justice to their cuteness.

This pixel crochet sweater by officially hooked is definitely going on my project list. There’s four different sizes, but it can be altered. The creator has included photos of a few different colour schemes, I want to make it in all the colours!

This colourwork knitted hat by Alison Menzies uses just two colours to make a very effective, cute design. The axolotl is surrounded by bubbles and plants, like it’s in an aquarium.

These knitted socks by Emma Bermudez Designs are amazing! They look like little axolotls are devouring your feet. I like how the creator has used textured yarn on the gills, maybe you could experiment with different fibres?

From Toft UK, you can get an amigurumi toy kit, to make your own pet axolotl! Or if you’d rather make a mini version, there’s a pattern in the How to Crochet: PETS book, which might be easier to access internationally, through local booksellers. When I made my mini axolotl, it was stolen in minutes by my cat, Kiki. This pattern is kitten approved!
