Since the game was released I'm almost addicted to it. I waste precious time to harvest silly fungis. It's so ridiculous 'cause the game is so pointless but I just can't help it. It's fun collecting them all. xD Therefore it was an absolute MUST-DO to crochet my own Nameko. Have fun with the free pattern! ♥

Starting with COLOR A.
LEGS (make 2):
Rnd 1. MR with a base of 4 sts.

F/O and cut a 6" yarn tail for one leg and leave the second leg connected to your yarn ball. Use the 6" yarn tail to sew the legs together. Do this by sewing two sts at the top of one leg opening to two matching sts at the top of the other leg opening. After they are joined together you should now have 12 free sts around the opening of the legs in the shape of an 8.
