Crochet Cute Cat Applique

I really like cats. Last time I recently shared crocheted cat coasters with you. And today I want to purpose you my crochet cat appliques. This is my own pattern and I really hope that you will enjoy it. I made it to decorate my daughter’s backpack. You can also use it to decorate clothes, a pillow or even a postcard. Using an embroidery needle, you can create different facial expressions. The cats are so different and so cute!

Materials:

  • I used Golden Sun cotton yarn 50 gr / 180 m (pink and rose colors),
  • crochet hook 1.5 mm
  • needle for embroidery, black thread for embroidery, scissors

Measurement: Cat is approx. 2.16 inches (5.5 cm) high and 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) wide.

Abbreviations Used (In American Terms)

sts= stitches
sc = single crochet
trc = treble crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Inc = increase

How to crochet Cat’s Head:

Work in pink color yarn. Make Magic Ring.

Round 1: Sc 6 into Magic Ring (6)

Round 2: Inc 6 around (12)

Round 3: [ Sc, Inc ] repeat around (18)

Round 4: [ Sc 2, Inc ] repeat around (24)

Round 5: [ Sc 3, Inc ] repeat around (30)

Round 6: [ Sc 4, Inc ] repeat around (36)

Sew or stick the head to the body as you like. By changing the location of the head, you can get different poses. For example, the head is down if the cat is sleeping, or the head is up if the cat is active.

  1. Do not understand from row 9, did you sc down the sides of row 9?how did you get 26 and how did u get to the other side? Dont understand

  2. Having no luck finding Rubi Cotton online .. Can you please tell me whether it is 3 ply or 4 ply? Thank you

  3. Hello, Jane! It’s 3 ply cotton yarn, 100 gr – 187 m.

  4. Hello, Vonz! Now I’ll try to explain it more clearly:
    Do row 8 – 20 sc, after that we do row 9 equal to row 8 (20 sc) + we go down the “stairs” of the previous rows (6 sc). Totaly 26 sc.
    Then turn around and go in the opposite direction (row 10). Rise up to the edge of row 9 (this is 26 loops) and again we go down the “stairs” ( 8 sc, 4 “stairs”). Totaly 34 sc. This is necessary to create volume.

    I also added a pattern at the end of the post. Here you can see how to crochet these rows.

  5. How did you make the nose?

  6. Hi, I love the mask! Just wondering do you have instructions on how to put the cat face on the mask?

  7. Hello, Brenda!

  8. Hello, Debbie!

  11. Thank you so much.

    Nice to have a pattern with a Bohemian background. My mom(who taught me to crochet and knit) was Ukrainian (my grandmother always said she was Romanian!) Thank you very much for the pattern. I wish I had some way to print your pattern that you added for illustration. Thanx for sharing.

  15. Thank you so much! Was thinking about improvising on my own, but this is much easier!

    If anyone wants the gauge, it is about 4.85 sts per inch or about 1.91 sts per cm.

  16. Hello is it English or US crochet ?

  17. Sorry , it’s american 😉 !! Thank you for this pattern

  18. This mask is great! Have you tried it with a thinner yarn? Every time I try to do something like this with a size 2 or 3 yarn it just doesn’t come out right! Maybe I’m doing something wrong.

    Thanks for your pattern!!

  19. I love this pattern, however i didnt like the fact that the sides were two different sizes. I was able to get 9 sc down one side and 13 down the other comfortably without any wrinkles and that bugged me. So i may play with this pattern a little to ensure equality.

    Thank you for this. I like it better than most I’ve tried.
