Crocheted lucky Japanese cats
Maneki Neko Cats are the cheeky feline chaps that can often be seen waving from shops with an eastern flavour. Unfailingly happy they are said to bring luck to the shops owner.
The cats were part of a custom order and were a real labour of love. It was all worth it in the end as the fabulous three felines look perfect. They even have the lucky coins around their necks and the jaunty beckoning paw in the air.
