Coco the Cat

Learn how to crochet a very cute cat amigurumi with this easy and fast to make free cat amigurumi crochet pattern. This small project is very suitable for beginners that want to learn how to crochet an amigurumi.
You can make the cat in any yarn that you like. I made it in cotton and chenille yarn, the cotton one is very small, the chenille one is much larger, these two cats are both made with the same kitty pattern.

If you want to crochet a big plush toy within a few hours, use big chunky yarn and crochet hook and you will have made a cute gift very fast! It will take about 2 hours to make.

Materials:

These are the materials that I used. You can replace them with other materials. If you wish to crochet a larger or smaller version of this cat amigurumi, you can just use a thicker or thinner yarn/crochet hook.

Small coco the cat: 6 cm / 2,5 inch
Big coco the cat: 16 cm / 6 inch

Purple cotton – catania color: 226
Black Cotton – catania color: 110
Synthetic Poly filling
1 pair black safety eyes: 8 mm

The big cat amigurumi (24 cm / 10 inch) was made with chenille yarn (super bulky), 5.0 mm hook and 16 mm safety eyes.

TIP Chenille/Velvet or other similar yarn: The body of the cat might look a bit to oval when crocheting it, don’t worry about it, it will be fine when you put stuffing in it.
