Step-By-Step Hello Kitty Crochet Pattern

Ready, set, go! Time to grab your crochet hook and get started. But before you get down to business, here are some things to bear in mind:

  • Crochet patterns are divided into SECTIONS depending on the “body part” you’re knitting.
  • Each section is also divided into ROUNDS (rnd). You complete each round once you’ve knitted all the stitches.
  • At the end of each round you’ll find a number with the final stitches you’re supposed to have. E.g:

“Rnd 5 . 24 sc + 1 inc at the end- [25]

STEP 1: The Legs

 This Hello Kitty crochet pattern goes from the bottom to the top.

For this section, start with white yarn:

Round 1 – Make a magic ring with 8 single crochets – [8]

Round 2 – Knit 8 increases (two single crochets in each stitch) – [16)

Round 3 – Every two single crochets, make 1 increase (16 sc + 8 inc) – [24]

Round 4 to 8 (5 complete rounds) – Knit 24 single crochets straight 5 times.

You’ve got the first leg! But don’t cut the yarn yet; you’ll use it later.

Now repeat these steps to make the second leg and join them with 1 slip stitch.

 

STEP 2: The Body

Are you ready to use some abbreviations? For the body, start with the blue yarn:

  • Round 1 – Make 24 sc on the first leg and 24 sc on the second – [48]
  • Round 2 to 6 (5 rnds) – Knit 48 sc straight – [48]
  • Round 7 – Every 6 sc, make 1 dec ( 36 sc + 6 dec) – [42]
  • Round 8 to 10 (3 rnds) – Knit sc straight – [42]
  • Round 11 – Every 5 sc, 1 dec ( 30 sc + 6 dec) – [36]
  • Round 12 (pink yarn) – 36 sc straight – [36]
  • Round 13 (white) – 36 sc straight – [36]
  • Round 14 (pink) – Every 4 sc, 1 dec ( 24 sc + 6 dec) – [30]
  • Round 15 (white) – 30 sc straight – [30]
  • Round 16 (pink) – 30 sc straight – [30]
  • Round 17 (white) – Every 3 sc, 1 dec ( 18 sc + 6 dec) – [24]
  • Round 18 (pink) – 24 sc straight – [24]

Now cut the yarn but leave a long tail to sew later. Then, staff the amigurumi firmly. The more fiberfill, the better!
