After making the very complex stoat patterns, I felt like making something a bit more simple. So I made a new cat! This is Maisie, a shy crochet Siamese.
When I designed my first amigurumi cat, Baltazar, I made all sorts of cat faces in the process, just for the fun of it. I made a tuxedo cat, a tortoise shell, an orange tabby, a Siamese and a few more. It resulted in a lovely image for Instagram and I knew I would finish some of these later.
So, the pleasant thing when designing this pattern was that I already had a finished head. I only had to design a new coloured body. Luckily for me – and for you, too – Siamese cats don’t have very complicated stripes or colour patches, so I could quickly work my way up the body. Only the back paws were a bit of trial and error, because I wanted to create a shape in colouring that made it look like the legs are folded underneath the hips for this sitting cat.
Maisie turned out to be a bit more shy-looking than Balthazar, probably because of the dark facial features. I really love how each animal has its own character. Seeing the creatures made with my patterns always gives me much joy, because I see my own work in it, but also a new and unique doll.
Here are some more pictures of this curious crochet cat, and below them you can find all the info about the pattern.
Info about & links to buy the pattern
This is a pretty easy and quick amigurumi Siamese to make. Only the colouring of the face and the attaching of the front paws require some extra concentration. The cat is made with Istex Lett Lopi, a 100% wool with a lot of fuzziness. It’s 5.1 inch /13 cm sitting. The pattern contains a clear and colour-coded description of how to crochet and assemble the doll, with instruction images next to the text and example pictures at the bottom to help you get everything right. In the pattern you can also find out what materials you need, the yarn colour numbers — in short, everything you need to know to make your own lovable Siamese cat. All the additional information you need to know about this pattern you can find in the shop listings. You can purchase it in my shop at Ravelry, Etsy or order it here.
