      For those who love cute things, this sloth is the perfect size to hold on your palm or attach to your bag as a keychain and be your traveling companion. You can also make a small blanket and attach him to make a lovey for your little one.

approx. 3.25" height x 3"length

*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Light Brown (35yds)
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Felt: Beige, Light Brown & Black
*Tapestry Needle
*Matching Thread

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.
Female sloths are normally pregnant for seven to 10 months and
will only give birth to one baby. They tend to live up to 40 years old.
 HEAD/BODY with light brown
  Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring (6)
  Rnd 2: 2sc in each st around (12)
  Rnd 3: sc in next st, 2sc in next st around (18)

  Rnd 17: sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog around (18)
  Rnd 18: sc in next st, sc2tog around (12)

F/O and leave a tail for closing. Add any bits of stuffing need it to finish shaping the head/body. Weave in the tail through the final round and draw up tight to close. Secure and weave in the ends.

FEET with light brown; make 2

  Rnd 4: sc in each st around (7)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

ARMS with light brown; make 2
  Rnd 1: 5sc in magic ring (5)
  Rnd 2-3: sc in each st around (5)
  Rnd 4: sc2tog, sc in next 3 sts (4)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     FEET...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 14 and 16; approx 1.25" apart. need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     FACE...using beige felt, make the outer part for the face. With the light brown felt, make the spots for the eyes. With black felt, make 2 small circles for the eyes and a small triangle for the nose. Using black embroidery floss or thread, make a smile. Once you glued everything in place, you'll be placing it between round 6 and 11.
     CLAWS...using white embroidery floss or thread, embroider small lines on the arms and feet.
