Materials:

* 3.5mm crochet hook and adequate yarn for this hook size in the colours of your choice for the Cat’s fur main colour and contrasting colour for the ears and the tail

* Yarn to embroidering the nose and the eyes

* A piece of satin ribbon to adorn the neck if you want

* Scissors

* Tapestry needle

* Stuffing fibre

* Blush makeup


Yarn information:

For this project, I used 100% cotton yarn Barroco Maxcolor (Círculo Produtos, TEX 885, Ne 4/6, 6ply, 7WPI) with a 3.5mm crochet hook.


Size:

Approximately 12cm. The actual size of the finished item may change depending on the materials used.


My abbreviations (based on US terms):

* MR - magic ring

* ST - stitch

* SL ST - slip stitch

* SC - single crochet

* INC - increase (2sc in the same st)

* DEC - decrease (sc 2 together)

* (STITCH)xNUMBER - number of times you have to repeat that stitch

* [ ] - total number of stitches


Tips:

* If you don’t know how to do one of the crochet stitches used in this pattern you can search on YouTube for “name of the stitch + tutorials” and you’ll find some very easy and detailed video tutorials for beginners.

* The rows that don’t mention to do a chain between them are worked in continuous rounds, so it’ll be easier if you use a stitch marker to mark every last stitch from the row.
