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
