Zane the Zebra is the third pattern in my series of six matching safari amigurumi animals. Check out the other two I currently have completed, Harriet the Hippo and Laurence the Lion! I will be releasing the fourth pattern, a giraffe, next Wednesday. 🙂 Be sure to subscribe if you want to be notified via email when I post new patterns.
I am nothing if not a perfectionist, so creating this free zebra amigurumi pattern really challenged me to perfect my color changes without having to cut the yarn in between. I tried a variety of techniques and my favorite ended up being Planet June’s no-cut join method.
As you’ll see in the slideshow below, the stripes are almost perfect! You can still see a bit of a seam up the back of the zebra if you look closely, but it sure beats having a “stair step” with each color change, or having to cut the yarn and do a standing start on every other row.
