Did I ever tell you I LOVE Cats! I've owned a cat or 2 or 3 for over 30 years and so I'm always drawn to cute cat stuff. This fun amigurumi cat pattern by Amigurumi Today was lots of fun to put together and I have plans for making more using a variegated yarn. This pattern can be found here and guess what...it's FREE! You can make all kinds of variations of this cat. Mine is wearing PJ's!
I used a 50/50 cotton/acrylic blend of yarn called Rico baby cotton soft (DK) with an 0/3.25mm hook. I also changed the paw pads a bit to look more like a cat's paw, but you can leave them as is and still have an adorable cat. My little guy came out a bit bigger and fatter I think than the author's because of the DK yarn I used. I'm not familiar with the yarn used in the original pattern, but I'd love to get my hands on some!
