The famous Amineko – amigurumi cat
I think the Ami-neko is the most photogenic cat of all. I got the pattern from this site in which is shared by the designer, Nekoyama. I have made several as gifts to my friends’ kids. The instruction said to put pellets inside before adding the stuffings. This makes the cat able to sit down and hold a pose. This is just super cool ! Thank you so much for sharing this pattern.
There is also a pattern for a panda and a bear in English that I plan to try out. If you look at the Japanese page, there are photo instructions. It is like eating your favorite ice cream and finding Maltesers hidden inside. Love !
