Skeleton Cat amigurumi free pattern

Meet the Halloween Cats! The new Little Crochet Farm collection, special edition for Halloween crochet toys!

There are other Halloween collections available that might be interesting for you to check out, the Mini Frank, Little Witch, and Chubby Black Cat amigurumi from last year.

The Halloween Cats collection comes with three free amigurumi patterns, the Cat Dracula (or cat-cula! LOL), Skeleton Cat, and Mummy Cat! They are all free written patterns on the website but this time, I couldn’t manage to make the video tutorial for the LittleCrochetFarm YouTube channel. So, maybe for the next year!
