Amigurumi Kitten Crochet Pattern
Kiki & Siblings

scroll ⬇️ to get the free pattern & tutorial

This crochet kitten pattern is comprised of three siblings, using the same pattern with variations in colors. Kiki, the middle child of the three, looks just like her mother! She loves getting her pictures taken and dressing up in beautiful clothing. “For all you know, Kiki might be a diva in the making.” Her father, Cosmo, always jokes. Aside from following her mom to work, she spends most of her time in ballet school, where her passion truly lies. This Amigurumi kitten may be young, but she’s pretty determined to become a professional ballerina when she grows up.

That’s Kiki and her younger brother. He was often mistaken as Kiki before his black-colored ears, and a small black spot on the side of his belly started to show.

To help us share this kitten crochet pattern with you, the Amigurumi kittens and cats gathered in the photo studio together for the first time. With kids, you’d expect the studio to be chaotic, but it wasn’t! The kittens posed with style and obediently. At the end of the day, they received compliments saying they were natural-born models

How to crochet kitten with basic crochet materials & tools?

For this kitten amigurumi pattern, you will need to prepare some polyester fiberfill and acrylic yarns in black, white, and red colors. Additionally, set aside a pair of 6mm safety eyes, one piece of 8mm safety nose, and a button for the red skirt. Do increase the number of materials needed according to how many Amigurumi kittens you will be making 🐱

If you’re a beginner with an understanding of a couple of basic stitches, you’d have no problem following through with this kitten crochet pattern. It is made up of five types of stitches; chain (ch), 2sc increase (inc), invisible decrease (inv dec), single crochet (sc), and slip stitch (slst). 

For the most part, you will be working in crochet rounds for this kitten Amigurumi pattern. However, you will be required to work in rows for the skirt and bow. To place a spot marking on your Amigurumi kitten like the picture above, you would need to change yarn colors, it is meant for intermediate level amigurumi. For beginners, please feel free to just use the same color throughout ☺

After a long day working for the crochet kitten pattern, the three musketeers have gone off for a nice treat and rest. For kittens to grow into strong and healthy cats, they need around 18 hours of sleep per day! Don’t we all wish we could get that much rest at least once a week? 😉
