This is my very first pattern, and it’s also my most popular (click here). I made this for my daughter when I was first learning how to crochet. Her only only requirement was to make it stand up. There weren’t many patterns and none that I could follow as a beginner.

From all the wonderful feedback I’ve received, there are a few features that people really seem to like:

โ˜† Simple shapes that are easy to make
โ˜† Stands on her own
โ˜† Bendable tail

Video Tutorial

I’ve wanted to make videos for a while now, but I was a bit nervous. I learned how to crochet from watching videos and I want to help people make their own toys. It’s challenging, cheap and you get a fabulous toy when you’re done! Easy Crochet Cat Part 1: Heads Up on YouTube.

But where to start? Why not at the beginning. My very first tutorial accompanies my first pattern. I hope making this along with following the pattern and doing this with me makes it easier for you to make your own cute little cat.

Things where the watching a video can help you:

โ˜† Embroidering the face
โ˜† Making the paws
โ˜† Creating the tail
