Unfortunately, this pattern is no longer available.

These are the miniature versions of the Amigurumi Flower Fairies. There is no carrying pouch in this book, and the wings are different from the Flower Fairies.

Amigurumi Mitsu means “Crocheted Trio”, and that’s just what you get in this crochet pattern. You’ll use punch thread or equivalent with a size 12 hook to make the tiny cat, bear, or rabbit in the Japanese style. Their little fairy outfit is made from size 12 perle cotton or size 30 crochet thread, and includes the jumper, flower hat, wings, and wand. You could also use purchased appliques as wings, as shown on the bunny.

These little guys are about 2.5 inches tall, not including their ears. Of course, you can make them bigger if you want to use larger thread and hook. They have a cotter pin and disk jointed head, and thread-jointed arms and legs. The cat’s tail is wired, and can be used to help her stand.

The pattern is clearly written with lots of detail. The booklet has 16 pages, and includes several color photos. It also contains instructions for attaching the eyes, jointing, etc, as well as a helpful list of internet suppliers, and a handy thread comparison chart.

The Cat, Koneko, appeared as the cover girl on the December 2007 issue of Teddy Bear Review magazine.
