Easy Crochet Cat (a pattern by Me!!)

Easy Crochet Cat

I made this cat for my neighbor. It didn’t take long at all. The finished cat is about 6 inches long and six inches tall including tail. ~IF YOU WOULD LIKE A PRINTABLE PDF PATTERN IT IS AVAILABLE IN MY ETSY SHOP FOR $0.50!



Abbreviations:
sc= single crochet
ch= chain
F/O= fasten off
dec= decrease
2sc= 2 single crochet (increase)



Materials:
  • cat colored yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Shocking Pink)
  • stuffing
  • small amount of cream and black yarn or embroidery floss
  • needle
  • scissors
  • size I crochet hook
  • Pipe cleaner to put in tail for flexibility


Body:
Ch 26
Row 1- sc in second ch and in each ch across
Rows 2-32**- sc across
F/O  

**You may want to do more rows or less rows depending on how long you want your cat to be.

Rows 2- 9- sc across
Row 10- dec once, sc in next 7, dec
Row 11- dec once, sc in next 5, dec
Row 12- 2sc once, sc in next 5, 2sc
Row 13- 2sc once, sc in next 7, 2sc
Rows 14-22- sc across


F/O



Tail:
Ch 19
Row 1- sc in second ch and in each ch across
Rows 2-4- sc across
F/O



Assembly:
Fold head in half. Sew together and sew diagonally for ears. Fold tail, sew together; before finishing put pipe cleaner inside the finish. Follow these instructions for body:



To make legs, fold two corners in half. It kind of looks like two fingers holding something. Sew leg seams. Sew the edges of your work together to make the cat rounded. Do the same for next legs as you did last time.



Now, sew head to front of body and sew tail to back of body. Embroider face on head of cat. Weave in any ends.



Enjoy your cat!




I don’t care if you sell the cat you make, but DO NOT SELL THIS PATTERN! I made it up. If you’d like to sell a pattern you can come up with your own. Thanks!
