Kogepan-chan free amigurumi pattern

6 Aug

Kogepan-chan is a burnt red bean bun character created by San-X.

The adorable brown bread boy is often in a foul mood – you would be too, if you were left forgotten in a sauna 30 minutes past your tolerance for furnace-hot air!

Pop in the white brads for the eyes – it should fall right below round 13. There should be a space of nine stitches between the eyes.
