Sloth Crochet Patterns

My son has developed a sudden fascination with the sloth that lives at our local zoo and suddenly those sleepy little animals seem to be everywhere I look…

Notebooks, lunch boxes and of course… sloth crochet patterns!

Oh my, these creatures are so cute and cuddly that your family and friends will be lining up to have you make one for them!

Make sure you scroll through this whole collection because as well as fabulous toy sloths I also found the cutest curtain tie backs, a tote bag and a fabulous hat and glove set!
