Let me introduce Neat Little Nelli the Rat – an amigurumi rat pattern from the book Cuddly Amigurumi Toys. There are several patterns in my books that are not available online, this white little rat is one of them. I decided to talk about her since it`s rat year now and it might be that some of you want to celebrate it with a proper crochet project.

This amigurumi rat was designed for my daughter who, at the age of 8, decided she wanted a rat for herself, as a pet. This idea really scared me, because I´m not a huge fan of rats. And besides, we already had a cat, so I simply couldn`t imagine all of us living happily together! So I got this idea of crocheting an amigurumi rat that she could cuddle, and see if she “forgets” that she wanted a real rat. And it worked!!! She totally fell in love with this cute furry toy and we never had to talk about domesticating a rat.

I wanted my amigurumi rat to look like a real one, so I put a lot of effort in getting it life-like. I am especially in love with those tiny legs. Aren`t they adorable!

The rat doesn`t have too many pieces to crochet and sew together. You will start making the body from the tail and end at the nose, so all this comes in one part. Later you will add ears and legs, plus embroider a nose. Piece of cake, right?
