I needed a kitty pattern for an amigurumi swap but didn't want to use any of the ones I had on hand. They didn't fit the 'look' I was after.
So........I decided to make my own up. I was aiming for a 'webbles wobble but they don't fall down' kinda look but didn't quite get there.....so much for my 'vision!'
However, itty bitty kitty did turn out to be pretty cute so I thought I'd share my pattern with anyone interested.
I'm not the best at writing patterns so forgive me if you run across an error.
You will need:
Small amounts of yarn...I used Redheart acrylic
Seed beads for eyes (or small safety eyes)and a bead for the bow
Small amounts of embroidery floss
Needles sized for floss and yarn.
Crochet hook size “G”
Begin with body color.
Sc 6 into a magic ring, pull tight. If you don't know how to make a magic ring, here is a tutorial.
Row 1: sc 2 into each sc around = 12 sc
Row 2: sc 1 into next sc, then sc 2 into next, around = 18 sc
Row 3: sc 1 into next 2 sc, then sc 2 into next, around = 24 sc
Row 4: sc 1 into next 3 sc, then sc 2 into next, around = 30 sc
Row 5: sc 1 into next 4 sc, then sc 2 into next, around = 36 sc
Row 6: sc around = 36 sc.
Row 7 : sc 2 together, sc 1 into next 4 sc around = 30 sc
Row 8: sc 2 together, sc 1 into next 3 sc around = 24
At this point, you may add the eyes, whiskers and mouth.
Stuff, but not too tightly.
Begin to close
Row9: sc 2 together, sc 1 into next 2 around = 18
Row 10-13: sc 2 together around until you can close. Fasten off and thread ends through.
Ears (make 2)
Turn, sc back along chain into 4 sc
Turn, sc back along chain into 3 sc
Turn, sc back along chain into 2 sc
Turn, sc 1, fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing.
Sc 4 into a magic loop, pull tight
Row 1: Sc 2 into each sc around = 8
Row 2: sc 2 together into next sc, sc 1 into next sc, around = 6 sc
Row 3***-8: sc around, fasten off.
***If changing color, do it at Row 3
Keep in mind you can make the tail as long or short as you want!
Do not stuff the tail.
Paws (make 4)
Sc 6 into a magic loop, pull tight
Row 1: sc 2 around = 12 sc
Row 2: sc 2 together , sc 1 in next 3 sc, around
Row 3: sc around
***Row 4: sc around
***if doing a color change, do it at row 4
stuff each paw just a wee bit.
To assemble kitty just attach the ears, tail and paws with yarn using a blunt tapestry needle.
Tie a bow, sew to head and add a cute bead.
