Martouf, crochet cat pattern

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.

Wasby, the crochet raccoon pattern

What’s with all that racket? It is Wasby, my new crochet raccoon pattern. Here he finally is! I’ve called him Wasby, as raccoons are called ‘wasbeer’ in Dutch.

With a nice frontal picture, meet my crochet raccoon!

This crochet raccoon pattern was a bit of a tricky one to make. When I started, I had some good ideas of how to make this animal. I didn’t want the head to be round but it had to become wider like a real raccoon. I had in mind of how to shape it but that didn’t work out that wel, so I had to think of something different. Also, I didn’t want the raccoon to become too chubby, but just a bit, which meant I had to make a bunch of bodies before I got the right size. The last thing I had much doubt about was the colour of the hand and feet….dark or light? I made some test versions and decided to go for light, and added some extra little details with the dark yarn. The fun thing about patterns like these are, if you like dark feet better, just go for dark. I also choose rustic colours to make this raccoon, but just white and black will do too. You could even give the raccoon a more brown fur colour instead of grey.

Here are some more pictures of Wasby.

Isn’t he a ferocious little crochet raccoon? This is my favourite picture of him. Wasby is sitting 5,11 inch/ 13 cm tall.

The crochet pattern for Wasby the raccoon you can find in my shop and in my shop at Ravelry. Wasby is made with Lett Lopi, a 100% wool. I have chosen to use a light beige for the light parts of the raccoon and the darkest brown you can find for the dark parts. It gives him a more warm and rustic look. In the pattern you can find the Lopi colour numbers to make Wasby, the materials you need to make him and of course a clear description of how to crochet and attach him, with example images as an extra help.
