• Getting Started
To make the cat we first start making the top of the head. We work our way down to the body. The head and the body are one continuous piece.
After that, we make the ears, legs, arms, tail, and green eyes!

Popcorn Stitch
This pattern uses a popcorn stitch to make the toes. If you don’t know how to make one, no worries! I explain how to once we get to that part.

 

First we’re starting by making the top of the cat’s head and work our way down to the body. The head and the body are one continuous piece.

  1. Just in time for Hallowe’en this month! Such a cute kitty!

    1. Oh my gosh that is so adorable! Your cat looks so fuzzy too, I LOVE that! 🥰 Thank you so much for sharing your adorable cat, those eyes are just beautiful too ❤️ I’m so impressed!

  2. Are you making a knot in the green for the eyes before inserting? If so, how did you hide it?

    1. Hi there Kristi! I didn’t knot it before putting in the yarn. Here’s what I do instead 🙂 I insert the yarn close to the eye, then put the yarn around the eyes, then after this I pull the yarn out of the same place I first inserted the yarn. Now the two tail ends of yarn will be coming out of the same stitch/hole. Tie both ends of yarn into a knot, then with your crochet hook pull this knot into the cat to hide. (I insert my crochet hook into the doll, then yarn over with both ends of yarn and pull it through the doll.) Now just cut the yarn to hide the excess yarn 🙂

      I hope that was able to help! Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

  3. Is there a video on making the cat?

    1. Hi Chana! There isn’t a video tutorial on making this cat, sorry! I will definitely consider making one for the future, though 🙂

  4. This pattern is awesome, thank you for uploading it. Really easy to follow for my first amigurumi.

  5. Mmh… I think something went wrong following your pattern…

    1. Wow that is so COOL! ❤️❤️❤️ You are so creative to look at a regular black cat pattern and make a red panda from it! (Or it could pass as a fox too, both super adorable). You did a fantastic job, I love it!!! 😍❤️

      1. I also made the regular black cat (the paw are felt needle), and before you put the ears you can tell your self “It could be a bear or a marmot, even a dog”, I’ll probably make several of different kind…

        1. Oh my gosh your cat came out SO cute! Like really, really cute 🙂 The way you made the cat it reminds me of a cartoon but I can’t put my finger on it. I think it reminds me of the black cat from Sailor Moon 🥰

          I can totally see making lots of different variations using this pattern, maybe you could make a husky with it? 🙂

          You really did an amazing job, the cat looks GREAT! I wish I had your skills 😍 Please show me if you make some more!

  6. Hi. I’m working on this cute little kitty now. Just curious. What size is it supposed to be when completed?

    1. Hi there Nikki! Thank you so much for your question 🙂 This cat comes out to be around 8″, but depending on your hook size, yarn size, and tension it may come out larger or smaller! I hope this was able to help answer your question 🙂 If you have any other questions along the way, please feel free to let me know!

  7. I just finished this cute kitty as a graduation present. I added a removable grad cap. I love the little feet. I had some issues with placement for assembly and I don’t have safety eyes/nose but I think it came out ok. He’s a bit hole-y but I’m sure I just stuffed too much.

  8. i just found your website and pattern today and i LOVE it! everything you make is soooo great and im looking forward to using more of your patterns. your website is super cute btw <33

    1. Awww you are so sweet! Thank you so much for such kind words, it means so much to me 🙂 I’m really happy that you like my patterns, and I hope you’ll come back to see the new ones I put out each week!
      I hope you have a fantastic day, and feel free to let me know if you ever have a question with one of my patterns!
