Sitting Cat Free Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

Free Sitting Cat Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

This is the sitting cat free crochet amigurumi pattern! The playing cat pattern can be found here. 🙂

You will need:
One small skein of yarn
A black thread
Polyester stuffing
One pair of safety eyes
Your favourite crochet hook
Your favourite sewing needle

For the cat in the picture I personally used:
4.5 mm eyes
2.25 mm (size B) hook
5 ply/sport weight yarn in white

Abbreviations:
sc = stitch
inc = increase
dec = decrease
hdc = half double crochet stitch
dc = double crochet stitch
sl = slip stitch
blo = back loop only
flo = front loop only
fo = finish off
( ... ) = repeat whatever is in between the brackets
[ .. ] = total amount of stitches in that round

Tips:
+ Stuff really firmly!
+ Stitch very tightly, so no holes show when stuffing. You can do this by using a smaller hook than your yarn label recommends, and by pulling your thread a little after every stitch.

3-6. sc around [7]
Finish off and stuff. Leave a long thread.

Sew the two tiny rear legs to the front of the body with the part you closed with 2 sc, but place them a little more towards the sides of the cat than the front legs. This creates stability, so it can sit on its own.

Finish off and stuff if possible. Leave a long thread.

Tail for sitting cat with wire

Sew the rear legs on the bottom of the body. Also sew the tail at the back of the lower back. To be able to pose the tail to your liking, you’ll have to add a little piece of bendable metallic wire to the tail. I do this as follows: take a piece your wire of choice and fold it over. One end will have a curvy side, this is the end that will enter the tail. Because of the curvy side, no sharp endings will come sticking out of the tail later.

Measure your folded piece of wire, and make sure that it’s just a little bit longer than the inside of the tail. So, if you push the wire into your tail, 95% will be in the tail, 5% will be sticking out. Then, push the tail onto the back of the cat body, and make sure that the 5% of sticking out wire (with the sharp endings) enters the main body of the cat. Then, sew the tail into place on your cat.

Sitting and playing cat.

Now you’re finished, congrats!
