Animal rat amigurumi pattern free

Realistic Rat (Amigurumi Free Pattern)

This little cuties are the reason why I’ve been crazy bussy this last week (and why I wasn’t too active here as well). I had the pleasure of making them as my last comission for this year, and I’m super happy with how they look. I don’t think most people know, but rats are actually incredible pets -smart and super friendly beings- which is why I was so thrilled to make them!

I needed to have the three of them done in just one week, and boy did I struggle (specially with the black and white one).  The pattern it’s super easy, and it’s meant so you can modify it into the combination of color that you need, you just have to change colors whenever you like.
