Amigurumi Asian Cat "Maneki Neko" - FREE Crochet Pattern / Tutorial (scroll down for pattern in English)
Onni the Beckoning Cat (Maneki Neko) amigurumi pattern Here’s an amigurumi pattern for a little Japanese Beckoning Cat, or Maneki Neko. These little cats welcome customers and are thought to bring good luck. “Onni” is a Finnish word/name meaning “luck.” I tried to simplify the design and add some kawaiiness, hope it was successful. :3
The Maneki Neko ( AKA beckoning cat) is an ancient tradition symbol of luck and fortune in Japan. This is one superstition I thoroughly believe in and follow religiously. The cat breed is the Japanese Bobtail. This is also the inspiration for my tattoo!
