    There was no instruction as to what color yarn was used for this effect. There are no color change instructions to get this effect. There is no instruction for where to place the ears or the eyes or the arms. The instructions for the tail makes a fat, stumpy (not cat-like) tail. There is no warning to embroider whiskers and place the muzzle and embroider the nose or add the eyes BEFORE stuffing the head. The head that results from this pattern is NOT the shape shown in the photo. It’s just a typical round amigurumi head.

    Found this pattern really fun and simple to follow! I’d been looking for the perfect cat pattern for a gift, and I can safely say this one was it the moment I laid eyes on it!

    There is, however, a lack of instructions for smaller details. I’ve written some indication in case anyone needs it:

    • I used 3mm hook and DK yarn
    – sew tail between rounds 13-14
    – if you’re using safety eyes, insert them between rounds 35-37 about 5-6 stitches apart
    – I opted to embroider a simple T-shape for the nose
    – sew ears as you see fit once you’ve finished the head

    Hope that helps! And thank you for the free pattern! Can’t wait to use it again!
