Hello Kitty Pattern

Updated: Feb 29

You can find an updated, more in-depth, and picture-heavy version of this pattern HERE!

I absolutely love Hello Kitty, which is why it's a total no-brainer that I would try and make a pattern (and fill my house with these fun little plushies) so, here you are, a fun little pattern for a very kawaii kitty!

You can customize this pattern in so many different ways! Want a zombie themed Hello Kitty? Change the color of the skin and leave off an ear! Do you want a winter themed Hello Kitty? Try making the dress blue and instead of a bow, make a snowflake! It's so fun to see just how many different kinds of Hello Kitty you can make! I can't wait to see all your variations, so be sure to tag me on Instagram with your finished creations!

A video tutorial would be greatly appreciated. I've had a little trouble figuring out some of the instructions. Especially the skirt with adding the bpsc to the already made item.

Am I overlooking something with the body? It stops at 11 rounds.

Hello. Do you have a better explanation for the first two rows? It doesn’t say to join on any of the rows and I really do not understand how to make row 2 work. Thanks!

I found a tutorial to do this by googling “magic circle oval”. Not what it is, but got me the information I needed.
