Finished large doll measures 4” tall and 3” across.  Finished small doll measures 3” tall and 2” across.   General Tips & Techniques: Be sure to keep yarn tension firm and consistent throughout your work. At the end of each row, I have given the number of stitches you should have. This is just a guide. If you are off by 1 or 2 stitches, don’t worry about it. Amigurumi is very forgiving. * I chose Caron Simply Soft for this pattern. You may substitute any medium-weight worsted yarn.  Bernat Satin or Red Heart Soft work well too. Abbreviations: ch chain hdc half double crochet sc single crochet sk skip sl st slip stitch st stitch   Materials: Worsted weight yarn (I like Caron Simply Soft, Bernat Satin, or Red Heart Soft). Crochet hook size U.S. D-3 Safety eyes or you can embroider the eyes Stuffing Yarn needle Large Doll: Row 1:  With body color and leaving a long tail, ch. 4.  Join with sl st into first st.  Work 8 sc into center ring and around tail.  Do not join.  Pull tail to close the hole in the ring, 8 st.  Place marker at beginning of row. Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around, 16 st. Row 3:  *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat from * to * around, 24 st. Row 4:  *1 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat from * to * around, 32 st. Rows 5-15:  1 sc in each sc around, 32 st. Embroider face or add safety eyes and facial features now. Rows 16-19:  Change to pants color.  1 sc in each sc around, 32 st. Row 20:  Skip next 16 st, 1 sc in next 16 st.  One leg begun, 16 st. Rows 21-22:  Continuing around the leg you must made, 1 sc in each sc around, 16 st.   Row 23:  1 sc in each sc around, 16 st.  Join with sl st and end. Row 24:  Join pants color to other side near the first leg.  Work 1 sc in each st around, 16 st. Rows 25-26:  1 sc in each sc around, 16 st. Row 27:  1 sc in each sc around, 16 st.  Join with sl st and end. Leg bottom (make 2): Row 1:  With pants color and leaving a long tail, ch. 4.  Join with sl st into first st.  Work 8 sc into center ring and around tail.  Do not join.  Pull tail to close the hole in the ring. Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around.  16 st. Join with sl st and end, leaving a long tail for sewing. Large Doll Beret: Row 1:  Leaving a long tail, ch. 4.  Join with sl st into first ch.  Work 8 sc into center ring and around tail.  Do not join.  Pull tail to close the hole in the ring.  Mark beginning of the row. Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around, 16 st. Row 3:  *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around, 24 st. Row 4:  *1 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around, 32 st. Row 5:  *1 sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around, 40 st. Rows 6-7:  1 sc in each sc around, 40 st. Join with sl st and end.  Weave in ends.  Pull beginning tail through top hole of hat and cut short for decoration.  That hat can be sewn onto the head or left removable. Small Doll: Row 1:  Using body color and leaving a long tail, ch. 4.  Join with sl st into first ch.  Work 8 sc into center ring and around tail.  Do not join.  Pull tail to close the hole in the ring. Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around, 16 st. Row 3:  *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around, 24 st.

Topknot:  Add a topknot the same way you added the ear trim with the eyelash yarn.  You will be adding them to the front 3 sc in the middle of the kitty's head centered between her ears.  Trim to desired length, approx. 1-2”.   Tail:  Using an approximately 24” piece of yarn in the main color, double it.  Insert your crochet hook around one of the stitches at the base of the back of the body in the tail area.  Grab the loop of the doubled-over yarn and pull through.  Hook both ends of the doubled yarn and pull through, attaching the yarn with a single crochet.  Continue working chains with both ends of the yarn until the tail is as long as you want it to be.  Make a pompom out of both colors and attach it to the end of the tail.
