According to the Chinese Horoscope, the year 2020 is the year of the Metal Rat! So I decided my first design for this year would be a little rat made in ‘metal’ grey yarn. Allow me to introduce Reginald the Royal Rat!

Reginald, as befitting someone born in the year of the rat, is an industrious, thrifty, diligent and positive wee fellow. He can accommodate himself to different circumstances quickly and get clear about the surroundings - which makes him perfect as an ornament to have on your shelf or desk at work.

The Year of the Rat is going to bring us creative energy where everyone will show determination regarding their goals, aspirations, and hobbies! So why harness your amigurumi making abilities to hook up this regal little project.

A fun little design for anyone born in the year of the rat, or for a rat or royalty lover!

The 5 page pattern is written in UK and US terms and includes explanations of all stitches and abbreviations.

I hope you’ll tag on Instagram or share your projects on my Facebook page as I love to see your finished work! Happy Crocheting!
