This is easily one of the easiest, quickest, most fun patterns I have worked on in a long time. I really enjoy making these fat cats, and there is a plethora of them now in my amigurumi army.
This pattern is very well written, simple to follow, and even includes pictures and diagrams to help you through the slightly more difficult parts. (There is only one part that isn’t super easy, which is connecting the ears.)
The actual pattern is written to include a strip on the cat, so you will need to be able to color changes. I prefer a single color cat, as I am boring like that. But I do adore them.
When I first made them, I gave them different colored tails and feet from the main body. I ended up not liking it very much, but I kept the photo because my awesome friend photoshopped a face onto it for me, when I was debating how on earth I was going to give this thing a unique and adorable face.
These are my finished guys with their faces. I think I came pretty close, considering my embroidery skills are horrendous and it has been a constant learning process.
These cats are a MUST for any crocheter who adores cats or knows someone who does. And if you don’t crochet, don’t worry, I can totally make them in a million colors for you!
