Flippable toy crochet pattern

Flippable toy crochet pattern

I’ve been thinking about this idea for a while now: a flippable toy crochet pattern. A stuffed toy that can be turned into a cat or a dog. After making up different designs, frogging and more designing, I came up with this flippable animal. I’m happy to share this free pattern with you.
