I assumed these were made with worsted weight acrylic yarn, but I was wrong! I think the cotton yarn is a great choice for an amigurumi "toy" like this cute crab. Now, it does specify how and where to use the cardboard. It goes on the inside of the toy and then you stuff it with the polyfill fibers. I can see an entire family of crabs in ALL summertime beachy colors like turquoise, dark blue, coral, red, among others.

I was born under the sign of the crab. When I was under I collected all things crab because it was not really fashionable and rare. Still, you do not see a lot of "crab" items. Here is an opportunity to have a little bit of my youth again. Thanks for the free pattern.

You dont have to be a fan of that Square Spongy fellow to fall for this cutie! The adorable project has a charm all her own. The pattern is easy to follow, but lacking step by step photos. The only confusing part deals with the cardboard to use with the base. I have no idea exactly what the designer wants me to do. I can guess, but it would be better spelled out properly.
