dec = decrease (2 sc together)
sl st = slip stitch
bo = bobble stitch
(..) = repeat the instructions in brackets the given number of times

Work in continuous rounds using a stitch marker.

Head:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in a magic ring [6]
Rnd 2: (inc) repeat 6 times [12]
Rnd 3: (sc in next st, inc) repeat 6 times [18]
Rnd 4: (sc in next 2 st, inc) repeat 6 times [24]

Rnd 7: (sc in next 5 st, inc) repeat 6 times [42]
Rnd 8-15: sc in all 42 st [42]
Rnd 16: (sc in next 5 st, dec) repeat 6 times [36]
Fasten off and hide the yarn tail.

If you use safety eyes, insert them between Rnd 9 and Rnd 10 (5 st in between them).

Back part:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in a magic ring [6]
Rnd 2: (inc) repeat 6 times [12]
Rnd 3: (sc in next st, inc) repeat 6 times [18]
Rnd 4: (sc in next 2 st, inc) repeat 6 times [24]

Rnd 8-14: sc in all 42 st [42]
Rnd 15: (sc in next 5 st, dec) repeat 6 times [36]
Don’t fasten off.

Now we’re going to join the head with back part.

Crochet sc in next 6 stitches through both parts, thus joining them together. Continue crocheting in rounds on both parts excluding those 6 stitches you have just made.

Rnd 16-18: sc in all 60 st [60]
Rnd 19: (sc in the next 10 st, dec) repeat 5 times [55]
Rnd 20: (sc in the next 9 st, dec) repeat 5 times [50]
Rnd 21: (sc in the next 8 st, dec) repeat 5 times [45]
Rnd 22: sc in all 45 st [45]

Insert the wire through the top of the back part and fasten it from the inside. Cut it off leaving more than enough length for the tail.

Rnd 23: (sc in next 7 st, dec) repeat 5 times [40]
Rnd 24: (sc in next 6 st, dec) repeat 5 times [35]
Rnd 25: (sc in next 5 st, dec) repeat 5 times [30]
Rnd 26: (sc in next 13 st, dec) repeat 2 times [28]
Rnd 27: (sc in next 12 st, dec) repeat 2 times [26]
Stuff the heart with fiberfill.
Rnd 28: (sc in next 11 st, dec) repeat 2 times [24]
Rnd 29: (sc in next 10 st, dec) repeat 2 times [22]
Rnd 30: (sc in next 9 st, dec) repeat 2 times [20]

Rnd 31: crochet sc in each st till the place where you want to make paw pads, then crochet (bo in next st, 1 ch, sl st in next st, sc in next st) x 3 times (3 paw pads) [23]

How to crochet bobble stitch: work 4 dc all into the same stitch, leaving the last loop unworked on the hook each time. When you have 5 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull trough all 5 loops.

Rnd 32: sc in all 23 st [23]

Stuff with fiberfill.

If you want the cat to stand on it own, insert a coin or plastic circle in the bottom. Continue crocheting the footing.

Rnd 33: (sc in next 2 st, dec) repeat 5 times, sc in next st, dec [18]
Rnd 34: (sc in next st, dec) repeat 6 times [12]
Rnd 35: (dec) 6 times [6]
Fasten off leaving a small tail. Weave in the yarn tail in front loops of the rest 6 stitches, then pull to close the hole. Hide the end.

If you find it hard to crochet with the coin put inside, you can crochet the footing circle separately, then sew it on using a needle.

Tail:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring [6]
Rnd 2: (inc) repeat 6 times [12]
Rnd 3: (sc in next 2 st, inc) repeat 4 times [16]
Rnd 4-8: sc in all 16 st [16]
Stuff slightly only the tip of the tail.
Rnd 9: (sc in next 6 st, dec) repeat 2 times [14]
Rnd 10-11: sc in all 14 st [14]
Rnd 12: (sc in next 5 st, dec) repeat 2 times [12]
Rnd 13-15: sc in all 12 st [12]
Rnd 16: (sc in next 4 st, dec) repeat 2 times [10]
Rnd 17-30: sc in all 10 st [10]
Finish with sl st. Fasten off leaving a tail for sewing.

Ears (make 2):
Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic ring [4]
Rnd 2: (inc) repeat 4 times [8]
Rnd 3: (sc in next 3 st, inc) repeat 2 times [10]
Rnd 4: (sc in next 4 st, inc) repeat 2 times [12]
Rnd 5: (sc in next 5 st, inc) repeat 2 times [14]
Finish with sl st. Fasten off leaving a tail for sewing. Don’t stuff.

Assembly:
1. Pin the ears to the head, then sew them on.
2. Cut off the excess wire, insert the wire in the tail, and sew the tail on the top of the back part. Bend it as you like.

3. Embroider a nose and whiskers.
