Long ago in the year of 2012 I was obsessed with making small clay figurines. The sushi cat was a popular figurine to make among the clay community. So now I decided to make it in crochet form! Now don’t go actually using cats in sushi. Please enjoy this free cat amigurumi crochet pattern!

  1. Hi! I’m currently following this pattern but I’m not sure where the safety eyes should be put in since it’s not mentioned in the pattern. May I ask between which stitches I should be putting the safety eyes? Thanks! Can’t wait to finish this cute pattern!

    1. Hi there! Thank you so much for your question πŸ™‚ The best place to put the safety eyes in between rounds 6 and 7, 6 stitches apart from each other ❀️ Please feel free to let me know if I can help answer any other questions!

  2. how large is the finished product?

    1. I made the sushi part for now, it came out 10×8 cm.
      I would guess the finished cat is around 20x10cm size, +/- 3-4cm
      With 4.5mm hook and 50g/150m polyester yarn
      I hope this helps a bit

  3. Hi! Is the body in rows or rounds. Having a bit of trouble with this part πŸ™‚ appreciate your help and this pattern 10/10

    1. The pattern says it’s done in rounds! πŸ˜€

  4. How many yarn did you use?
