Free pattern: Neko Atsume #2

Here is the second neko atsume pose pattern! You can find the first, a sitting pose,
here. I made Shadow but feel free to adjust the colours to make any cat you’d like. :)

For this particular cat I used a 2.25 mm hook, sport/5 ply yarn, and 4.5 mm safety
eyes.

Be sure to stuff very firmly! The number between the brackets after the instructions of
every round is the total amount of stitches that will be in that round.
Head
1. 6 in a magic circle [6] This will be the top side of the head

2. ( inc ) x 6 [12]

3. ( sc, inc) x 6 [18]

4. ( 2 sc, inc) x 6 [24]

5. ( 3 sc, inc) x 6 [30]

6. ( 4 sc, inc) x 6 [36]

7-13. sc around [36]


14. ( 4 sc, dec) x 6 [30] Place the safety eyes between row 10 and 11

15. ( 3 sc, dec) x 6 [24] Embroider the snout now if you prefer to do it before stuffing

16. ( 2 sc, dec) x 6 [18] Slowly start stuffing while crocheting along

17. ( sc, dec) x 6 [12]

18. ( dec ) x 6 [6] Finish off and shut. Leave a long thread.

With some black thread, embroider the snout if you haven’t already.

Ear (x2)
1. 4 in a magic circle [4] This will be the top of the ear

2. ( sc, inc) x 2 [6]

3. ( inc ) x 6 [12] Finish off. Don’t stuff or shut. Leave a long thread.

Fold the ears into flat shapes. Sew the ears on top of the head.
Front leg (x2)
1. 5 in a magic circle [5]

2. sc, inc, sc, inc, sc [7]

3-10. sc around Finish off the first leg, but do not finish off the second leg!
When you’re finished with your second leg, don’t finish off. It’s time to merge the
two legs into one piece that will be the beginning of the main body.

Continue from your second leg and chain 5 sc. Continue from your chain and join it to
the first leg, and sc around all 7 sc from the first leg. Make 5 sc over one side the
chain you’ve just made and sc around all 7 sc from the second leg. Continue
crocheting onto the chain and make 5 sc on the other side than the one you’ve just
crocheted on. You now have a round of in total [24 sc] and you can continue to work
in rounds.
