Roly Poly Cats Pattern
happy poo

I've had a lot of requests for this pattern, but I never got around to it. The reason - I'm just too darn lazy to write up a written form of the pattern! I'm still not used to written instructions (I prefer number charts), so if you find any problems in the pattern, please let me know.

I ♥ your Roly Poly Cats! Thanks for posting the pattern. I want to try making one. :)


I just totally love all your crochet babies! ^-^ I saw a picture of your Sgt. Frog and Kururu and they look amazing! :3

I am so sharing this with my crocheting friends...but also will be making as next year's christmas gift stash. They look like they'd make great toppers for gifts.

Hi from Russia ;)
Your Roly Poly Cats are very cute! I'm going to try to make one right now :D Thanks a lot for the pattern))

wondering, is it US sc or UK sc? I just cant get mine right and I'm thinking the definition might be the issue.

It's US sc (UK double crochet). Almost all amigurumi is done in US single crochet :)

Hello all, my mother in law told me that if I bring her the pattern of this cute kitty, she´ll make it for me :). Shes amazing at crochet, I suck so bad instead. Is this the pattern? I mean when I see some patterns in magazine is very different, But I dont know the first thing about crochet!. Can anyone give me some directions?

Hello, i have a question.

May i translate your free patterns, for my own website for (free) dutch patterns.
Ofcourse i link to your originel patterns.

Greetings Patricia
