Stitch or glue some strong felt or leather fabric, to the bottom of the feet,so it will be flat. Fix both feet to the bottom of the legs.

Sew the tail to the body.

Make some eyes with fabric or what you like, and fix them to the head. This little chipmunk has eyes from white fabric and black yarn.

Last thing to do: embroider one black line in the back of the body, from head to tail, and two white lines, one at each side of the black line. See the pictures

And the cutest crochet chipmunks are finished.

  1. Wow! this is really generous of you to share this free pattern. I love crocheting even though I do not have such mastery as you in it but then, I am developing well and the chipmunk procedure you have shared here would be replicated by me immediately. This is almost equated to learning from YouTube videos as you have simplified everything very well. Thanks so much for this post. Thumbs up

    1. Thank you very much, but the designer is Irene Kiss. I love her work. If you make something, I would appreciate it if you would share it on my Facebook page. I am creating a supporting community, and you are welcome.

  2. Hi Katja,

    This is a pretty cool and cute pattern, I was wondering if this is a good pattern for someone who is new to crochet? My niece loves craft and chipmunks, so I think she would love to make these, but I would be her first attempt. If it is too complicated for a beginner, do you have any alternative she could start with?

    1. Hi. Thank you. I wouldn’t recommend it for her first attempt. It would be better to try The eyeballs, or The cat and even The bear keychain patterns. I am sure she will love it because she will do it faster because they don’t have so many details. It is better if she starts with the basics. Have fun crocheting, and if she needs any help, she or you can write to me, and I will do my best to help.

      Have a nice day.

  6. What a cool crochet Chip n’ Dale pattern. I have always loved these brother chipmunks! Since I was a kid. Did you know that Chip n’ Dale appeared for the first time in a cartoon of “Private Pluto” back in 1943. Back then, they were just annoying Pluto and didn’t have names. People loved them from the very beginning.

    I’ll enjoy playing with these crochets with my kids.

    1. I did not know that. It is so interesting! Thank you for sharing. I love this kind of information; if you read my posts about Halloween costumes for boys and the other for girls, you will see I wrote a lot of background stories.
