An original crochet amigurumi Himalayan Cat pattern from the AmiCats range by June Gilbank. This pattern can be used to make any similar-looking cat breed, for example Himalayan, Colourpoint Persian, Birman.
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in a pair of point colours, e.g. white or cream and mid-dark brown or grey
Hook: US E / 3.5mm
Additional info: This pattern includes 5 pages of bonus info in 3 appendices:
- Two-page appendices for both right- and left-handers that clearly explain my innovative method for joining the legs and body while you crochet so they sit at exactly the right angle in the finished cat.
- Bonus instructions to crochet the (optional) pictured nose from crochet thread or embroidery floss and a 1.25mm/size 9 steel hook. Instructions for making a simple felt or embroidered nose are also given.
This is a modular pattern: save paper and ink by printing only the appendices you need (crocheted nose; right-handed or left-handed assembly guide, or neither).
Size: approx 5.5"/14cm tall
Eye size: 9mm (Although I used black eyes for my sample cats, I purposely chose the size to work with 9mm eyes - the most common size of cat 'safety' eyes!)
Note: Take advantage of the savings when you buy this pattern as part of the complete AmiCats Collection 2!
