Retsuko is a Red Panda from Netflix's anime-inspired cartoon Aggretsuko (she enjoys Death Metal Karaoke to work out her job-related stress...). I made her for a friend at work as part of a surprise craft swap that I organized on the fly. My co-worker loves her! She sits on her desk now.




Retsuko is made entirely from DMC embroidery floss using a US Size 2 hook, and she stands ~3.5 tall, including her ears. I used a free pattern I found on Ravelry, which can also be found here: https://minasscraft.com/en/aggretsuko-amigurumi/.



I spent about 7-8 hours making her, as crocheting with floss always means I drop half as many stitches as I complete! I used toothpicks to reinforce her neck join, and this pattern gave me an opportunity to practice smooth color changes!  I was really very good at it by the end. Smiley

Omg I don't know how you can do crochet so tiny!!! Really masterful work. I'm jealous. I can't crochet. I've tried.  Lol.

Thank you all so much! I was taught very basic crochet by a very sweet older neighbor when I was a child. I taught myself to crochet more complex things after college using YouTube and books. I love doing amigurumis with embroidery floss, since the end result can fit almost anywhere! Sometimes it does exhaust my eyes, though.  Grin

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
