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!
TC = Triple Crochet
Crochet Cat Applique Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 10 SC in ring, join to first SC, chain 1
