  1. Does the weight of yarn matter for your pattern? Kind newish to crochet and love your kittie pattern.

    1. Hello,

      For this pattern I used Patons Astra Yarn :)

  2. Hi, this is really cute! I started trying the pattern and I have 2 questions: For the head, row 13 accounts for 22 stitches, not 20. Is this a typo? Also, there appear to be 2 lumps on either side of the head--are these supposed to be where the eyes go? Are they chubby cheeks? I can't see any bumps in the images so I'm a bit confused by it.

    1. I have exactly this doubt in career 13 doing accounts to the contrary (8-4 + 6-4 = 30) the previous career should have 30 points and not 28. So I guess it should be (8-4 + 6 = 22) Please?

    2. Hello did you ever get a response to this question? Did you figure out the pattern on row 13? Im stuck here

    3. My fix so the math would add up with previous and following round:
      Rnd13: Sc x 6, dec x 4, sc x 6, dec x 4 (20)

  3. I love this cat!! Thank you so much!!

  7. I wanted to thank you for this excellent read!! I definitely loved every little bit of it. I have you bookmarked your site to check out the new stuff you post. ways to stop cats from spraying

  8. Absolutely amazing written article. Too Impressed after reading it.

  9. Row 13 on the head is written correct. Another way to write it is: Sc 8,(sc 2 together)x 4, sc 6,(sc 2 together)x 4. Each (sc 2 together) becomes 1 sc, so : 8 + 4 + 6 + 4 =22
