Crafty Intentions CROCHET PATTERN Cute Critters: Set 8: Yokai Critters Edition (printable PDF-file / 84 pages)

Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this pattern is for Five Cute Yokai critters! An Amabie, a Kappa, a Kitsune, a Nekomata, and a Tanuki!! This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.

This pattern comes with instructions to make cute critters!! The pattern comes with instructions for FIVE different adorable Yokai Critters! There is an Amabie, a Kappa, a Kitsune, a Nekomata, and a Tanuki!! Everything you see in the photos is included in the pattern. All instructions are carefully depicted with words and photos! This pattern features clear step by step instruction with a lot of row-by-row photos. The gauge is not crucial to the pattern as long as the stitches are tight enough to hold stuffing.

This pattern is a total of 84 pages containing a full set of written instructions with photographic illustrations, and there are video tutorials for particular steps and stitches available on my YouTube channel. This Pattern consists of ONE PDF File, and the last 24 pages are Text-Only, Printer-Friendly instructions, but I strongly recommend you still refer to the photographic illustrations throughout the pattern if you have any questions.
