An original realistic crochet amigurumi rat pattern from the Fuzzy Friends collection by June Gilbank.
Yarn: a bulky weight fuzzy yarn and a worsted weight yarn for ears and tail. The specific yarns I used have probably been discontinued since I designed these patterns in 2007-8, but these patterns are very versatile and you can substitute many different yarns with great results:
Bonus Information Guide: All Fuzzy Friends patterns include an additional PDF instruction file called About Fuzzy Patterns. This 4-page reference guide is crammed full of information, tips, and examples for choosing and using both eyelash and fluffy/fuzzy yarns, how to substitute any regular yarn of your choice, and how to brush smooth pieces with a wire brush to give a fluffy result.
Hook: US H / 5mm and US E / 3.5mm
Size: approx 9″ long (not including tail!)
Details: Pattern includes full instructions to make a lifesize realistic crocheted rat.
