Kitty Mod Free Cat Amigurumi Pattern

KittyModCatAmigurumiPatternKittyModPattern
I love cats in general. Growing up, cats always seemed to naturally come into my life for one reason or another. Currently the cat in my life is a female cat named Hobbes, as seen in the above picture. When I created this pattern, I imagined a world run on Kitty Energy. Kitties would be the source of everything, pretty much from fruits, vegetables, desserts, random objects, transportation, weather, and so on. But before I could populate such a world with these different type of Kitties, I wanted to create a very simple basic cat amigurumi pattern, and so this is the result.

KittyModAmigurumi I call this crochet pattern “Kitty Mod” because I imagine all these different kitties with different mods (short for modifications) to them, and I see them all frolicking about in this wonderful universe. In the pictures, you can see Strawberry Kitty Mod, S’mores Kitty Mod, and Candy Corn Kitty Mod. I will blog very soon how to add on these simple customizations, but for now, please enjoy my Kitty Mod Pattern! Don’t forget to share them with me after you’ve finished your project. I’d love to see your version of Kitty Mod! My social media is listed below after the pattern.
