Rhino Amigurumi Free Pattern

What does amigurumi means?
The word Amigurumi comes from Japanese. The Japanese call handicrafts knitted with crochet and needle as Ami. The Japanese call the toys that are filled with objects such as fibers or cotton as Nuigurumi. The word Amigurumi is derived as a combination of these two words.

It’s not a difficult pattern to crochet, but the small details like the legs and especially ears can be a bit fiddly to make.
