Enter Amineko, the most famous cat of all. It has even got their own Facebook page. Those two cute guys were made on special request of two adorable little boys, who were missing their tomcat something fierce after he joined all the cats that have gone before him. This has been my first foray into Amigurumi, the fun and crazy world crochet animals and figures.
Amineko the 1st and 2nd
The Amineko pattern is originally in Japanese but has been translated into many languages by now and can also be found on the internet. It’s basically a crochet chart with a few instructions for putting the whole thing together. It’s not exactly complicated but also not a walk in the park. But this might have been only my personal experience sind I am not the most proficient crocheter at the best of times.
Amineko Crochet Cats
Would I do those two cuties again? Probably not even though they are indeed adorable. It was just too fiddly and annoying. Was it worth it seeing two lovely boys being happy beyond anything? Of course it was. If one of my own kids asked me for one I would probably do it all over again. Go check out the projects on Ravelry and enjoy those cutie pie cats!
Materials: sock yarn held double, wool for stuffing, rice to weigh down hands and feet
