Colour guide

To make the most of the Katia Amigurumi 100% cotton selection, Actante Dourada proposes that the pattern colours can be chosen as desired. The cameras are made with a gradient of 5 colours alternating on every row, another colour for the camera lens and another colour to embroider the camera with. So the nice thing is that each person chooses the colour combination that he or she likes best.
