Dandylion, crochet cat pattern

Dandylion is finished and he looks even more enthusiastic than I hoped for. As soon as I had him finished, I felt like making more. An orange striped version or a black one, maybe a wild cat. I love how he’s able to be positioned in different ways and he can surely observe you with his big eyes like real cats do.

Meet Dandylion, my crochet kitty cat pattern. This is such a fun and playful cat amigurumi. He’s made with basic shapes and doesn’t look very realistic, but because of his authentic cat expression, he looks exactly like real a real cat, probably the only animal who lies like this, watching you and being up to no good.

Here are some more pictures of this mischief and scroll down for info about & links to buy the pattern.

Info about the crochet cat pattern

With this easy pattern you can make a lovely striped amigurumi cat or a cartoon version of your own cat. Just divide his colours in simple shapes and crochet ahead, it’s fun! The cat is lying 9.1 inch / 23 cm long, when made with worsted weight yarn. The crochet kitty cat pattern is for sale in my shop at Craftsy and in my Ravelry shop. You can also order it directly from me here. The pattern is written in standard American crochet terms and contains a clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal with example pictures next to the instructions and at the bottom. In the pattern you can also find what materials you need, the Lopi colour numbers, in short, everything you need to know to make this unique crochet animal. All the additional information you need to know about this pattern you can find in the shop listings.

Personal use only

This weekend I got an email from someone, asking me if  I was okay with selling dolls made with my pattern. I was glad she asked me this, because I had to respond to her that I wasn’t okay with it.

I know some crochet character designers don’t mind it if people sell the dolls made with their pattern. But I do mind. I think it’s not fair to sell a doll which you didn’t design yourself. You are making money of someone’s else creations in some way. It’s not a very decent thing to do in my opinion.
Now I also know that when someone bought a pattern, they can do whatever they want with it, I can’t forbid anything. But I just hope ‘my customers’ understand my opinion about this and won’t sell the dolls.
In all my patters I’ll make a note that they are for personal use only, so for yourself or as a present, but not to make money with.
I hope you’ll understand.

 

Kitty cat crochet

There are so many idea’s I have, and each time I start a new project I have to pick which one I’m going to make. A squirrel and a sheep are hight on my list, but I also would like to make a cat. Sometimes the things on my list haven’t really ‘formed’ in my mind, so the idea that has, gets priority. This time the cat got it. There’s a clear image in my mind of how he should become and his colours etc. so I can’t wait to make him.

Here’s a sketch. He will be a ‘folded’ kitty.
