Crochet Cat Amigurumi


Find here a cute pattern for a little crochet cat!


 

Hi everyone! My baby sister just had a baby and she asked me if I could make her a crochet mobile! She has a tribal theme nursery. And this crochet kitten is the third amigurumi that I made for the crochet mobile. The crochet feathers were rather challenging to design! I wanted them to be small enough but to look like feathers anyway. I hope you will have fun making this cute crochet cat!

 

I hope you will enjoy and understand the pattern. If you have any questions, feel free to write to me. Don’t forget to join my facebook group where you can ask questions and share your work with me and other crocheters.

 

And feel free to share the link to this pattern on social media, as it really does help to support me as a designer. Your support means so much to me!
