Mermaid Cat Doll Free Crochet

Hello Amigurumi Lovers,

Today we share one free amigurumi crochet pattern again for you. As you know we share new amigurumi free patterns every day. The main crochets are amigurumi gazelles, amigurumi bears, amigurumi pola, amigurumi pandas, amigurumi penguins, amigurumi giraffes, amigurumi llama, amigurumi pigs, amigurumi bunny, amigurumi clowns, amigurumi lambs, amigurumi bees, amigurumi unicorns, amigurumi dolls, amigurumi foxes, amigurumi penguins, amigurumi dinosaurs, amigurumi elephants, amigurumi hippos, amigurumi monkeys, amigurumi cats, amigurumi dogs and more …

Who said cat couldn’t be mermaids? For this intermediate level pattern requires 4 to 5 colors (including white and pink for snout) and some thin black thread to embroider the eyes. Gauge is not essential for this project : you can use any size of hook you want as long as your yarn choice is consistent with it. Just be careful to work tight stitches so as the stuffing doesn’t show through. The original owner of the pattern is June Lee Hooker. You can find other free amigurumi patterns on our site here. Let’s start 🙂
