Mamegoma - Shirogoma - Japanese Baby Seal Crochet Pattern

Mamegoma (まめゴマ) is a Japanese baby seal character from San-x studio. He is so cute and comes in many different colors and varieties. I use the picture below as a model for my crochet Mamegoma.

 

I know that it doesn't look the same, especially the tail that I just realized after I finish making him. For me, it's still cute anyway. :D
Let's go to the pattern section!
