C is for Cat: Crochet Cat Applique

C is for Cat

This friendly feline can be made in any colors you choose! How about an orange tabby or a white persian or a siamese?! I used to have a gray cat named Smoki (before my black cat, Romeo) so this little gray appliqué reminded me of her :) Remember that I also have a Crochet Cat Hat Pattern that is purrrrfect for cat lovers! 
– Worsted weight yarn in any color! I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Silver Grey and Pink.
– Size G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqué and vice versa)
– Tapestry needle
SC =  Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet

Crochet Cat Applique Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 10 SC in ring, join to first SC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (20 SC)
Round 3: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1 (30 SC)
Round 4: SC in first 10 stitches, DC in next 5, SC in next 10, DC in next 5, join to first SC.
Round 5: Chain 4, * HDC in 2nd chain from hook, DC in next, TC in last chain, skip one stitch in round and join with a slip stitch to next stitch. Slip stitch in next 4, chain 4 and repeat from * to make other ear. Fasten off leaving long tail.

Use tapestry needle to stitch on inside of ears, nose, whiskers and mouth.
I made a french knot for each eye. HERE is a tutorial on how to make a french knot.

    Hi! I’m trying to make a little tiger face applique, and this is the closest pattern I’ve found. Would you change the ears to make it more tigerish? I still need to figure out the tiger mouth….but I’m hoping I can wing it…maybe! Thanks for posting these, by the way!
