Jacque the Manta Ray Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Did you know that Giant Manta Rays wingspan can be as long as 29 feet? Yea. Completely amazing. When I finished this manta ray amigurumi crochet pattern, my husband said, “it’s great, but it’s big”. That’s about when I shared with him this shocking fact. And although I always welcome feedback on my toys, in my defense, I informed him that he would have been WAY bigger if I was actually making him according to some ratio compared to my 8-9 inch standard for most of my other characters. This guy’s wingspan comes in at a whopping 16 inches.

So there, Josh.

Anyway, this has definitely been a fan favorite so I’m thrilled to finally get to share him with you here! You can find his pattern up on my Etsy shop!

Here is a sneak peak at his story –

Our story begins in the Aegean Sea
A manta ray living a life fancy-free
You’d never have thought that a great time ago
One would consider him not friend, but foe

He was frightfully strong and his anger severe
All would take shelter when Jacque would come near
He was to be feared and greatly renowned
For he was the most dreaded pirate around

His speed and his size would cause much dismay
You’d do all you could to stay out of his way
But one day ol’ Jacque stopped dead in his tracks
when approached by a couple of giant humpbacks…

You can read the rest of his story which is included along with his pattern – a beautiful 9- page PDF document with detailed instructions and accompanied by LOTS of clear pictures to help you along the way. Find the Jacque the Manta Ray Amigurumi Crochet Pattern here!
