Hello Kitty Amigurumi Pattern

Updated: Feb 9

Hello crochet friends! I'm so excited to share today's pattern with you! This Hello Kitty Amigurumi Pattern is fun and easy to make and will have you wanting to crochet yourself a kitty friend in every color!

Welcome back to another Free Pattern Friday, friends! This Hello Kitty amigurumi pattern is a bit different from previous versions, and I think you'll like it! This time, I've made sure that there is minimal sewing and I've also tried to design a body that more closely resembles the original character. There are some joining techniques that you may be unfamiliar with, but I've done my best to try and make everything as clear as possible.

Thank you so much for joining me today on this crochet adventure! Let's get to crocheting, shall we?

Sc 12, tie off leaving long tail for sewing. Weave in starting tail.

Mr 6, tie off, leaving long tail for sewing, weave in starting tail. 


-Attach the head to the body, being sure to line it up carefully so that the head doesn’t end up turned to the side (unless you want it that way).

-Pin the ears into place where you want them and then sew them down.

-Add the overall straps to the back, just behind the arms, on the line where the color change happens. To affix the front of the straps, I like to sew the button to the strap and then use the tail from the button to sew everything down to the front of the overalls.

-Sew the bow middle to the bow and then add it to the ear.

-Embroider on the eyes, nose, and whiskers. I usually start by pinning scrap yarn down the middle of the face to better map out where I'd like the features to be. After my guide-lines are pinned down, I use pins to mark where I want to embroider. Once I'm happy with how the pin face looks, then I use a satin embroidery stitch to sew on the face. I make 3 passes for the nose, four for each eye, and one for each whisker, taking out each pin as I'm about to sew it, so I remember where I'm supposed to embroider it.

-After that you are all done with your new Hello Kitty friend!!
