Crochet #7: Crochet cats with free crochet patterns
I have made several before crocheted dogs. In today's article I show two different cats that I crocheted. I made both cats with free patterns. Curious what I made?
I found one on the stip &haak site free kitten crumb pattern. I thought the kitten was so cute that I started crocheting it first. I crocheted my cat with leftover yarn with a 2.75 crochet hook.
The pattern is very easy to follow and very clear. At one point I thought for a moment, this will be okay. What only the body looked very dull. But with the tail, snout and ears the kitten became very cute. I crocheted the tail a little looser, with 9 single crochets in a ring. I still find this difficult.
For the first time I also used the technique of crocheting stripes that continue with a color change. This went well for me, but not yet perfect as you can see. I used this for this video on YouTube.
Big crochet cat
I saw a very nice big cat on Pinterest. Because I wanted to take on a larger crochet project, I chose this cat. It free big cat crochet pattern can be found on the Amigurumi Today site. The pattern is in English, but very easy to follow.
For this crochet project I chose mixed yarn, which I still had lying around and came from Kruidvat. I used crochet hook 3 for this project. The mixed yarn creates a nice pattern of different colors. To ensure that it did not become a repeating color pattern, I sometimes cut out some yarn. I wanted to keep it “spontaneous” :-).
I really enjoyed crocheting the cat. It took some time but it was very relaxing. This was mainly due to the size. The arms consist at their narrowest of 12 single crochets in a ring. So this is not very small and very nice for my fingers ;-).
I really recommend this pattern to everyone!
