Free Crochet Playing Cats Pattern
You can make this lovely crochet cat with this easy to use free crochet pattern. The amigurumi pattern is easy to read and suitable for beginners, but it assumes basic knowledge of crochet techniques. The crochet pattern is available in English and uses US terminology.
The two cats in the picture are made with:
- 25g of Paintbox Yarn Cotton DK in 402 Pure Black
- 25g of Paintbox Yarn Cotton DK in 401 Paper White
- A small length of black embroidery thread
- Two pairs of 6 mm safety eyes
- Polyester stuffing
- One 2.25 (size B) crochet hook
- A thin needle for sewing
If you use these materials the amigurumi will be 6 cm tall (about 2.4 inches). However, you can make the pattern with any type and weight of yarn (just be sure to adjust the hook size to the yarn you are using). The materials mentioned above are simply a recommendation in case you would like to make the exact same amigurumi. There is no limit to your creativity!
You’ll use the following stitches:
- Regular stitch
- Decrease stitch
- Increase stitch
- Slip stitch
You’ll use the following crochet techniques:
- Crocheting in rounds
- Starting with a magic circle
- Making a chain
- Crocheting two rounds into one
