FREE Classic Pocket Cat Hug Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Pattern Notes

Pocket hugs are great little things to send to a loved one when you’re missing them, especially those who like cats. Here is my take on pocket hugs from an amigurumi perspective. I introduce to you my collection of cat hugs. These are great to send as a gift without the magnet, or add a magnet and put it up on the fridge as a reminder. The pattern is worked in rounds and pieces are sewn onto the body. Each pocket cat is approximately 3” (7.5 cm) in diameter. You can buy the pattern in my shop for a small fee!
