Following on from my Father’s Day Fat Gnome for my Daddy, here’s the present I’ll be giving my Mum for her birthday next week (it’s also my Dad’s birthday tomorrow – It’d be an expensive month June if I couldn’t crochet!). This amigurumi is based on my Mum’s cat Astra (long story there – basically my Dad, a fireman, rescued her from beneath the bonnet of an Astra car when she was a kitten).
I learnt to crochet the right way round for this pattern – you’ll notice that my Gnome (and probably others I’ll post in the future) are wrong side out. I think it looks nice either way, but I especially wanted the Stripy Cat the right way out to give her that zigzag fur look.
Free pattern after the jump.
