17 Crochet Sloth Patterns

Have you seen an animal that sleeps for a good part of the day, rarely sets foot on the ground, prefers hanging around and moves very, very slowly? The sloth!

Sloths are cute, lazy and the slowest mammals on Earth. Their normal facial expression looks like a smile. Sloths are so popular as many people, who are tired of their fast, stressed lifestyles, admire these animals and their quiet slow life. 

Celebrate your inner sloth this summer with one of these Crochet Sloth Patterns below!

1. Sloth Amigurumi Pattern by Spunky Onion Patterns

Complete with a cheeky grin, this sloth definitely has character. A darker shade allows you to use up all your chocolate brown fibers, which works nicely in contrast to his cream face. Or a pink one for a more feminine look. Don’t forget to add on its toes and fingers – the most integral part of the sloth being, of course.
