Cute Cat- FREE CROCHET PATTERN

About 3 years ago, I bought this lovely pink and blue sparkly wool. My daughter asked if I can make her a unicorn with it, so thats what I started to make, But then as I was near half way through she asked me to turn it into a cat. It is not my best pattern, but it still turned out really cute and my daughter still loves it now.

Hi, Welcome to MyBelle Creations. I taught myself to crochet around 5 years ago and really enjoyed it. Over the years I have made many different types of items, my favourites being my ‘geeky’ items such as the Labyrinth movie characters and Dungeons and dragons items. I have enjoyed making and sharing my patterns and finished items. Since my children have gone back to school full time, from being home school during the covid-19 lockdowns, I have decided to start a new way of sharing my patterns and items.
