Plushie Cat Crochet Loaf Pattern (No Sew)

| | |

We have a super cute mini crochet cat plushie for you to have a go at this. These crochet loaf plushies are super quick to make. You can scale them up or down to match your yarn. If you use regular cotton to crochet, they make adorable keychains. If you use super plush, you get a cute plushie. The best bit? This Loaf Cat Crochet pattern is no sew (save for the loose end at the end.. and adding features). We have a Large Loaf Cat Crochet pattern for you too.. great for beginners!
