Supplies:
5mm crochet hook, 4/Medium weight yarn in any desired colors for body, pink for nose, white for muzzle. 12mm safety eyes, tapestry needle, scissors, and stuffing.

Additional Information:
Difficulty: Easy
This pattern refers to “Main Color” as the main color you want your cat to be. You can use any color, but I wanted a striped cat so I used white, pink, and purple. I started in white and alternated to the next color every 2 rounds.
We start by making the cats head, which leads into the body. They are one piece. Next we create all of it’s head pieces,such as ears and whiskers, and sew them on. Finally we make the arms, legs, and tail.

Note: I used a 5mm hook because it’s easier on my hands and I wanted the cat a little bigger and less stiff. If you want you can use a 4mm hook and yours will still come out very similar to mine. Also, specific colors used for this cat is Big Twist in White, and Red Heart in Pale Plum and Petal Pink.

  1. I like the fact that you have a stitch count at the end of each row. It really helps tremendously. I like the patterns. Thank you

    1. Thanks for letting me know that you find that helpful! And I’m glad you like my patterns 🙂 Please feel free to let me know if you have any pattern suggestions <3

  2. Hi! I crochet animals and sell them, would it be okay if I crocheted a cat using your pattern, posted it on Instagram to sell, and tagged you? If it’s not okay, don’t worry!

    1. Hi Michaela! Thank you so much for asking, you can definitely sell the finished cat you make from this pattern 🙂 I only ask to not sell the actual, written pattern – which I know you’re not doing! Good luck on selling your cat amigurumi, I bet it’s adorable 🙂
