Putting the Friend in Amigurumi

Rebel Cat Amigurumi free crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

Happy Monday, friends! It’s the last Monday of May and honestly, the month has felt like it flew by. I’m lucky though, this Rebel Cat Amigurumi pattern has been keeping me company for weeks.

I love cats. I’m not sure if you know that about me, but I do. If I didn’t move so much, I’d probably have a couple now but I don’t know where I’ll be living in a couple years and I don’t want to bring a cat into this. That’s why I’ve made this ami (also the Sweetheart Cat Ami if you’d like a different style).

I’m not kidding, though, this ami has been keeping me company on the couch for a while, just hanging out while I work on blog posts and on other yarny projects. I like having a friend around who always thinks my new design is super and very supportive. It’s a ton of fun. πŸ˜€

I also designed this pattern specifically for the 2020 Softie CAL sponsored by Fairfield World. I had some very soft and squishy velvet yarn and I couldn’t wait to use on something special, which I’m glad I did because this turned out so fun. Don’t you think?

Make sure you head to the 2020 Softie CAL information page or check out the Facebook group so you can learn about how to join the CAL, see all the designers, and enter to win some of the prizes.

I hope you like this pattern and give it a try. It’s really not as hard as it looks. πŸ˜€
