Crochet Kitten Plushie Free Pattern!

September 9, 2018

These little kitten plushies make for the perfect gift for any cat-lover :) 

 

I had such a fun time designing these adorable amis, feel free to get creative with the colors you choose! I think the design is perfect to experiment with different shades of yarn or even to use the colors that don't get as much attention in your stash!

Sew the tail directly under the middle of the stripes on the back of the cat, in the last row of the body. The tail should span about 3 stitches. Do not stuff. Flatten and weave in ends.
