She says on the post about this pattern that it is not only easy but requires very little yarn. This would be a good time to use some leftover yarn scraps!

I've fallen in love with the Little Woollie Blog!

Jules of the Little Woollie Crochet Blog kindly gave permission for me to feature some of her images and patterns and I am so happy that she did.

The beautiful colors that she uses in her crochet projects just make me want to take a bite out of whatever she is making. Seriously!

I love her use of vibrant colors and can just imagine giving this Kitty Cat to a little one for them to love and cuddle.

Even though this awesome free crochet toy pattern has several steps to it, I know it is very doable for me.

I'm giving it a rating of Intermediate Skill Level.

There are two parts to this crochet tutorial and you can check out both parts here Kitty Cat Crochet Tutorial Pattern Part 1 and Kitty Cat Crochet Tutorial Pattern Part 2.

Be sure to comment and let her know how much you love her awesome crochet tutorial and her very lovely crochet blog!

      Crochet!!!! So much more versatile. I just love this kitty cat. My daughter is a cat fanatic, I am going to start making her one this weekend. Thank you so much for posting a pattern!!!!!!!!!

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I love the kangaroo and the owls. You are so very talented.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      Crochet definitely so quick and not so much sewing up.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I am more comfortable with crochet but teaching myself various knitting techniques as I like both.

    • CrochetLady1 3 years ago

      Both. I do both.

      But I do knit a little with crafts. But seems like knitting goes much slower. The slippers I make are Aunt Alma's Boots and yep Knitting. So I guess I am a cross over between crochet and knitting.

    • Elsie Hagley 3 years ago from New Zealand

      I like it either way, but crocheting looks an interesting challenge.

      I prefer crochet because it was the first one I was taught. I am still struggling with knitting.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      I love to crochet have been crocheting for over 40 years and it's so much more easier and relaxing than knitting is to me. Yes I can knit if I so desire, but try never too as it frustrates me too much! Hahaha

    Knitting for sure!

        I've knitted quite a bit and done some crocheting. I prefer knitting but love the Kitty Cat and will be picking up my hooks soon.

      • knitstricken 4 years ago

        I am, alas, more inherently a knitter, but am descended from a noble and deep line of crocheters. :o) I am DELIGHTED to have found this lens, for it is definitely inspired *as well as* inspirational! I shall visit regularly! Many thanks!

      One of my little grandson's favorite toys to chew on at the moment is his Mario stuffy toy that his Dad got for him. I think he likes the big fat nose part the best. It fits perfectly in his little mouth and is great for teething it seems.

      I'm thinking that I need to whip up this Big Mushroom Crochet Toy Pattern and see if he likes chewing on that as well.

      This pattern is supposed to be SUPER Easy according to the poster of this free crochet pattern, Amanda Giraeo on Ravelry.
