**It’s so nice to hang out with Ollie the Sloth any day of the week! Sloths are such amazing animals, I am sure they could teach us a thing or two about slowing down and relaxing.**


This pattern is written in **US crochet terms**, with step by step photos to help along the way. The main body, head, legs and arms are worked in a round and joined seamlessly, with tummy and face sections sewn in at the end.


**When made in Rico Baby Cottonsoft Dk and 3.5mm hook the finished Sloth is a nice cuddly toy size, about 25cm/10inches tall, with long arms to dangle from branches.** Add small yarn loops to the inside of the arms to easily pose him in different places.
