Here’s a pattern for a little cat amigurumi. This was originally supposed to be my fox pattern (sort of), but that ended up going off on a different tangent. So I turned this into a kitty named Miuku (mew-koo). My cat Luna insisted on being in the picture.
Size: 3″ tall
Worsted weight yarn
3.50 mm (size E) hook
6 mm safety eyes
Note: Start the head by working down one side of the starting chain, then back up the other. This diagram may be helpful for round 1.
Rnd 1 — Ch 5. Starting with 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc, 3 sc in next st, 2 sc, 2 sc in next st. (10 sts)
Rnd 2 — [2 sc in next st, 1 sc] rep around (15 sts)
Rnd 3 — [2 sc in next st, 2 sc] rep around (20 sts)
Rnd 4 — [2 sc in next st, 3 sc] rep around (25 sts)
Rnd 5 — [2 sc in next st, 4 sc] rep around (30 sts)
Rnd 6 — sc around (30 sts)
Rnd 7 — [sc2tog, 4 sc] rep around (25 sts)
Rnd 8 — [sc2tog, 3 sc] rep around (20 sts)

Attach eyes and embroider whiskers on head, then stuff. Fill body with plastic pellets, then sew body and head together. Sew on ears. Stuff tail lightly, then sew onto body.

Another Saiunkoku amigurumi finished, yay! It’s Shi Ryuuki this time around, my fave SaiMono character who brings out my inner squee-ing fangirl. And here I thought I’d outgrown that phase. XD I’d like to try making a bigger version with the more elaborate court robes (elaborate robes = pretty)… The simpler outfit is a lot easier to make into a chibi doll, though!
It’s a good thing Shuurei is there to lean on ’cause he’s about to fall over under the weight of the hair. ^_^;;
Finally finished my Kouyuu amigurumi from Saiunkoku Monogatari that I started, like, ten years ago… ^_^;; I was going for a grumpy look. The little hair bun thing was really fun to make. Doll hair amuses me way too much, I think. ^^
Ryuuki is (probably) next. :D
