A Little Background Story Of Amigurumi Cat

Ever wondered what Hello Kitty would look like if she became an adult? We imagine she’d look like the elegant white-colored Amigurumi cat pictured on the left in the portrait above, with long arms and limbs. Besides being a world-famous idol & model, did you know Hello Kitty was once a tourism ambassador to Japan in China and Hongkong? What a successful career cat she is! Little female kittens look up to her and aspire to be just like her when they grow up!

Hello Kitty met her then-boyfriend, Cosmo, the Creative Director, during one of her photoshoot sessions. They immediately hit it off and spent a lot of time together professionally. As days went by, the pair of friends found out they had so much more in common. Their favorite weekend activities are fishing & hiking. They’re both imaginative, share similar core values and adore children!

After confirming Hello Kitty was the love of his life, Cosmo went down on one knee and popped the question, “Will you marry me?” Of course, the bride said YES!

To no surprise, Hello Kitty gave birth to three adorable kittens a year after their marriage. Even though they’re the spitting image of their parents, the kittens all look different! Do look forward to the free amigurumi pattern for the kittens coming up next. [Update: the free crochet pattern of amigurumi kitten is here.]

Material & Tools To Crochet Stuffed Cat

The materials and tools for this crochet cat pattern are pretty basic. Prepare some acrylic yarns in black/white, pastel pink, red, a pair of 10mm colored iris, a piece of 12mm safety nose, polyester fiberfill, craft pipe cleaner/craft floral wire. As for the tools, you’ll need a 2.5mm crochet hook, long darning needle, water erasable fabric market, scissors, and pins. With that, you’re ready to conquer this cat crochet pattern! 

Side Note: Safety eyes and safety noses are baby-friendly and kid-friendly only if they are installed properly. Always use the safety eyes and safety nose that comes with a locking plate. The locking plate locks the eyes and nose in place so that they will not get pulled out from the stuffed animals. If this is still a concern to the safety, glue the locking plate to the shaft of the safety eyes and nose to add another level of security.

How To Crochet Cat Amigurumi

Unlike the Amigurumi Dragon, Amigurumi Giraffe, and Amigurumi Elephant, who are crocheted with multiple or vibrant colors, the body of the amigurumi cats are made with neutral colors. Hence, we pay attention to the little details, such as accentuating their paws and inner ear colors or dressing them up with the doll dress/panties or sexy bikini

First of all, to a crochet amigurumi animal, you will need some basic crochet knowledge and skill. Amigurumi are crochet stuffed animals made up from single crochet stitches (abbrev as “sc” in American Crochet Terms). You may read out more about the introduction of amigurumi in this link.

There are two “bases” for this crochet cat pattern. One of which is the head, where you will use to attach the cats’ ears, crochet the whiskers, and install the safety nose and eyes. The other base is the body, which you will use to connect the Amigurumi cat’s arms, legs, tail, and bow (optional). Once you’ve crocheted, stuffed, and joined all body parts to the bases, stitch the head to the body! Et voilà, you’ve just made your very own crochet stuffed cat ☺
