Pattern Notes for Maneki-neko (Lucky Cat)

● Pattern is worked in continuous rounds without joining; unless otherwise stated.
● Place stitch marker in 1st stitch of round to indicate beginning of round and move marker up each round.
● Pattern uses invdec for decreases, except where indicated.
● Changing Color: insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, complete st with new yarn color.
● To avoid clumps in the poly-fil when stuffing, pull out a handful at a time and pull apart to fluff.

Pattern can be worked in any type of yarn with appropriate corresponding hook size. I used super bulky size 6 weight chenille.
