Finally I had the time to publish my latest pattern. Meet Martouf, an orange tabby crochet cat!
When designing this pattern, I tried to make a simple and striking, but also very versatile crochet cat. Martouf has become an orange and white tabby cat. I also thought of making him a brownish tabby or a black & white cat, there were so many options! Cats are one of my favourite pets and I love their diversity in looks. It was hard to choose which kind to make. And making my own cat, a mad black one, was not an option because that would make this pattern a bit too basic. The cat had to be multi coloured.
And that diversity in looks presented another lovely challenge too. What if I could create a pattern that makes all sort of cats?
So, with that in mind I started designing and for every body part of the cat, I looked if there were easy colour changes to add to the pattern, so one could make a different looking cat.
This cat pattern has become so versatile, most types of cats can be made with it. For instance, in the part for the head, you can find an extra instruction of how to create a white line between the eyes. And the part for the body offers a second instruction to make a complete white belly. In the pattern you can find several of these instructions that can help you make your own cat.
Here are some more pictures of Martouf and below it you can find info about and links to buy this crochet cat pattern.

Hooray!! My hook has been hovering, naked and bereft, just waiting for this little darling! If my collection grows any bigger we’ll have to move house… 😀. Thank you Sonja – another winner! 😺 😽
The only thing better than a cat is an orange cat!! Next on the hook!
What a little orange darling! I love him, Sonja! My biggest problem will be deciding how many to make!
Thanks Jan & Chris, I am looking forward to seeing your projects!
Gorgeous! But will have to add it to the queue… 🙂
