Only 3cm long!
A mini green Lucky Tiny Kitty.

This is one of the simplest patterns I’ve every written, and it’s not rocket science, but I thought I’d share it with you all anyway. Plus it’s a great stash buster.

  • Step 1

    The Essentials:

    Hook: 2mm (makes the size shown, but I’m sure any hook size would work and scale up or down accordingly).

    Wool: DK in green, scrap of DK red.

    Finished Size: 3cm long.

    Also needed: Small amount of green felt


    CH = Chain

    SC = Single Crochet

    INC = Increase

    DEC = Decrease

    I start my amigurumi using CH2 for simplicity, but if you prefer you can use a magic ring.

    Round 7: {2sc, DEC} around [18]
    Round 8: {1sc, DEC} around [12]
    Round 9: DEC around [6]

    Round 12: SC around [18]
    Round 13: {1sc, DEC} around [12]

    Finish off leaving a long tail. Thread the tail through the body to the back and cut to desired tail length.

    The above crocheted from bum to nose by the way. You’ll end up with the photo. Add your face using black embroidery thread.

    Step 3

    Grab your felt and cut two triangles for ears, and four ovals for feet. Stick the ovals straight on using your glue gun or some all purpose glue.

    Step 4

    Fold your triangles in half and glue them in place too.
    See the collar as well? That’s just a scrap of red wool glued in place. Or you could tie a bow round his neck if you’ve got a longer scrap or some nice thin ribbon..
