The Cutest Crochet Toy Ever: Crabby Patsy

[2]

One of my favorite things to make is crochet toys [3].  Not only are they small and portable, they are also super easy to make.  This free crochet amigurumi pattern [4] is just about the cutest one that I’ve ever seen!  Meet Crabby Patsy.  She’s small, quirky and beyond adorable.  Make a bunch in all the colors of the rainbow, and you’ll have a sea of sweet little crochet amigurumi toys to play with.  They make great baby gifts and the older kids love them too.  Amigurumi might look difficult, but you don’t need to know how to do much more than single crochet to make a fun crochet toy in a snap.
