Litten Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Free Amigurumi Patterns | 2

Litten is that moody kitten from Pokemon Sun and Moon. If anyone else watches the anime, you’ve probably had your heart broken in that episode where Litten loses his friend Stoutland to old age. I bawled watching that episode. But after a few days of mourning, Litten was back up and at ’em. Make your own crochet Litten and remember to keep moving forward, even if life gets you down.

    Thank you for this crochet pattern. I give my child a new ornament based on what she is into every year but this year she asked for litten in particular. The size of the pattern is perfect.
