Amigurumi Cat Free Pattern

Hello amigurumi lovers and beautiful visitors, I wanted to share the free amigurumi patterns for you here. In my article I will share 1 pattern and how to make it for you. At the end of my article, I will share amigurumi patterns that can generate ideas for you.

WHAT YOU NEED / MATERIALS
* Two balls of Lion Brand Yarn’s Go For Faux in Black Panther
* Worsted weight yarn in the following colours: white, black, purple, and pink/rose.
* 8 mm Crochet Hook
* 4.5 mm Crochet Hook
* Poly-fil Stuffing
* Small bean bag (optional)
* Scissors
* Yarn Needle

STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS
st/sts – stitch/stitches
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sc inc – single crochet increase, 2 single crochet in one stitch
sc dec – single crochet decrease, single crochet 2 together

NOTES
* When using the faux fur yarn, use the 8.0 mm crochet hook
* When using the worsted weight yarn, use the 4.5 mm crochet hook
* The front legs are crocheted along with the body, so make sure you make the front legs before you start on the body.
* Both sides of the fabric that you create using Go For Faux is equally as soft and fiuffy, so it doesn’t really matter which side you decide to use as the outside of your amigurumi
* But as an FYI, I used the “wrong side” to be the outside of my
amigurumi.
* Make all the pieces using Lion Brand’s Go For Faux with an 8.0 mm crochet hook unless otherwise noted.
* Check out my 5 Tips for Crocheting Amigurumi using Faux Fur Yarn to help make your life easier.
* The red bow that you see in some of these photos is actually a headband that I made a while back. I will write up the crochet pattern and post it on the blog soon.

The little bump created in round 8 with the extra 2 increases is meant to be the tip of his nose. After you stuff it with poly-fil stuffing, try to shape the head so that it’s nice and round and have the nose just stick out just a tiny bit as shown in this photo.
