Amigurumi

* This is a PDF pattern, it is not a finished toy *

Crocheting these tiny crabs is really addictive! After the first one you can’t resist crocheting an handful of crabs with little claws.

3 PAGES PDF PATTERN – Available in English (US terms) and Italian

Pattern notes
The little crab is formed by 2 pieces (back and belly)then sewn together. The pattern is worked using the amigurumi method. Work in a continuous spiral without closing off the rounds with a ss. It may help to use a stitch marker in the last stitch of each round, moving it up as you work.
You can follow the written instructions or the chart.

Tension
To make this amigurumi it isn’t necessary to use the recommended yarn and crochet hook. Using a larger crochet hook, and a suitable yarn, the amigurumi will be larger preserving the same proportions.

Measurements:
Working with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and the suggested cotton yarn the finished amigurumi will be approx. 5 cm / 2 in diameter.

You will need:
– Sport weight cotton yarn (suggested yarns: DMC Natura Just Cotton, Silke Estate) (50 g approx. 130 m) in Orange
– 2.5 mm (US B/1 or C/2) crochet hook
– 2 beads (about 2,5 mm / 0,1 in)
– black cotton thread
– tapestry needle
– fiberfill for stuffing
