Nutmeg is a sweet (and a tad cheeky) kitten, who loves nothing more than playing with a ball of yarn or chasing sunshine around the room - her shape is inspired by vintage toys and nature. Join and shape the body as you go for a lovely seamless look.

When made with DK/Sports yarn and 4.00mm hook she will measure around 16cm/6” tall and 23cm/9” long from nose to tail. NOTE: Keep stitches very tight amigurumi style.

The pattern is written in US crochet terms. There are step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and sew together the toy.
