Amigurumi Cat Crochet Pattern

Cats, the most unpredictable pet you can get. The exciting thing about cats is that you will never know what your cat wants from you and she will always intentionally give you the wrong signals so that you always do exactly the wrong thing.

If you are looking for a more predictable alternative to a real cat, then this small crocheted Cat is just right for you.

This crochet Cat is exclusively crocheted with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The depicted Amigurumi Cat has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 5 cm.

Assembling the Cat

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, start sewing the legs onto the body. Start sewing the first leg onto the body directly over the edge that was created by the round that was crocheted only into the back loop. Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Ears: Sew the ears right and left 1 to 2 stitches from the middle of the head onto the head.

Tail: Sew the tail to the back of the body centered over the stitch edge.

Muzzle: Sew the muzzle to the head centered below the eyes.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a vintage-colored thread. Embroider the nose on the middle of the just sewn on muzzle. To do this, first pull the thread vertically one time from one stitch to another with 1 stitch in between. Then pull another vintage-colored thread horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping 1 stitch between those stitches.

Whiskers: Push a tapestry needle with a black thread through a stitch right and left of the nose and pull it through through a stitch on the opposite site of the nose. Always use the same stitch to pull the threads through. Cut the threads to the desired length. Repeat this so that you have 4 whiskers on each side.

DONE!
