KEY FEATURES:
• Perfect summer DIY project to take on holiday and get creative by the pool or the sea – just use a cool cotton yarn and customise the colours to suit you.

• Add extra aww-factor with the quick-to-make accessories – includes patterns for duck rubber ring, bucket and spade.

• Pattern is given in UK crochet terms first and then US crochet terms, so you only need to read the section that’s relevant to you.

• Pattern support is available from the designer if you need it – feel free to ask me questions!

MORE INFORMATION:
• Beginner-friendly soft toy project uses chains, slip stitches, magic loop and UK double crochet/US single crochet increases and decreases.
• Finished cat measures approx 15cm/6in tall and 10cm/4cm wide – this size makes the cat quick to make but big enough to hold in your hand.
• For this project, I used DMC Natura Just Cotton yarn (100% cotton, 50g/155m) – shades are detailed in the pattern.
• You’ll also need a 2.5mm (US C/2) hook, a pair of 7.5mm safety cat’s eyes, and one 3mm black safety eye (for nose).

DESIGNER INSPIRATION:
Becky Skuse says: “I love amigurumi and I designed Sandy as a happy little pusskins who would love to hit the beach with you any time! Perfect as a holiday project, my beach cat is simple to hook and the pattern comes with bucket, spade and ducky rubber ring for maximum seaside fun! To complete the adorable design, Sandy is dressed in a stripy blue and white bathing suit – perfect for a family day out at Weston-super-meow (sorry!). You won’t need much yarn for this project so it’s worth splashing out on some cat-effect safety eyes to add an extra life-like look.”
