Hope everyone had a Merry Christmahanakwanzika and Happy New Year!
These cats have the honour of being the first pattern written by me! It was pretty interesting, and I hope crocheters out there get to enjoy a cat made by their own hands as well. Download to get my
ugly pdf pattern!
The ears, honestly, sometimes work, sometimes don't... but are still usable. I'll keep trying.
I used some Patons DÉCOR yarn that is probably 10 years old… oh! It’s 25% wool, no wonder it’s so soft and nice… that’s the minty cat. Both orange cats were made with some Red Heart Super Saver. It’s decent acrylic, but kinda rough in feel and look. I gotta say – cotton really can be the best. It gives really crisp stitches, and is real soft. Go get some Bernat Handicrafter.
The eyes were, of course, hot glue gun drops. Not Smarties.

The cat on the bottom right is actually not so teeny, but pretty much uses the same ears and tail as the other cats. I forgot to measure, but the teeny cats were around 4 inches/10cm-ish.Here are the abbreviations used (bleagh there are a lot):
Ch - chain
Sc – single crochet
Dc – double crochet
Hdc – half double crochet
St – stitch
Rep – repeat
Dec – decrease – recommend the more invisible single crochet decrease taught here: [link]
Sc2tog – single crochet two together. Alternative to invisible decrease.
F/O – fasten/finish off
BLO – In back loops only
R – round
[#] – number of single crochets made in a round
boring warning stuff:
Please link back to and credit this page for the pattern. PATTERN NOT TO BE SOLD.
Please don’t sell projects made from this pattern as well. Teeny cat is meant to be a gift, or else s/he will combust without warning.I’ll try my best to help with any questions, so go ahead. I wrote the pattern as I worked, so it should have no mistakes... Hopefully… I’d love to see any finished projects! It really means a lot to me.
