Day 1- Squishy Cat Amigurumi

DSCF1881I was in the trust pound shop the other day and came across parcel string. I did not really have much use for it in the old days but that was when I couldn’t crochet…

Parcel string is great to crochet with in a 5.5 or 6mm crochet hook. It is really sturdy and creates a surprisingly soft yet very strong finish. Originally I had wanted to make cat toys from it, but I thought I aught to test it out.

Low and behold! Squishy cat!

The pattern was very simple. Gained from the book found on amazon here, Puffy Pals by Sayjal, at £1.91.

The books patterns are really easy to follow and take less than 1 hour and a half to complete including features. There are so many variations on the basic pattern I’ve been having great fun with it! Parcel string is a really fun medium 3 balls £1!! Who can resist that!
