Updated Hello Kitty Pattern

Updated: 5 days ago

Happy Friday everyone! For this week's pattern, I wanted to give our old friend Hello Kitty a pattern refresh!

First of all, I want to say thank you again, to all the people who have reached out to me via email and social media for help on this pattern! It really helps me to know what I need to change and how to proceed with future patterns, so I really, truly appreciate it!!

Now, I didn't change much about this pattern (other than a whole new pictorial). I did however, change a couple things, namely shortening the head by 1 round, taking the last row out of the ears, and removing the sleeve portion/color change in the arms. In addition, I added the option to make the skirt removable. I quite like this option as it gives you the ability to change out skirt colors, but it is a little bit more work, so keep that in mind.

I think I've done enough blabbing, so, let's jump into this very refreshed pattern, shall we?

~The increases should be at either end of your chain. I highly recommend working the beginning tail of your yarn into your stitches so that you can pull it a little tighter so that there aren't any gaps in your stitches.~

Round 5: (sc 3, inc)x6 [30]

Round 2: sc x3 in each stitch around [72]

Round 3: sc around [72]

Fasten off, weave in ends.



Skirt with ties

(alternative, removable option)


Begin with ch 25

-Starting in 2nd st from hook, sc across [24]

-ch 1, sc x3 in each stitch across [72]

-ch 1, sc across [72]

-ss into beginning chain on either end and ch 20, these will be your ties.

Fasten off, weave in ends. Tie around body.

While you're constructing the skirt, it'll be very twisty, but when you tie it around your Hello Kitty, you can just untwist it and the ruffles will form instead.


When weaving in the ends of the ties, you'll need to try and go in between the fibers of the yarn like this, that way it'll blend in better:



Arms (x2)

Round 1: mr 4 [4]

Round 2: (sc 1, inc) [6]

Round 3-6: sc around [6]

Fasten off. Stuff, sew opening in half and attach to body.


Feet(x2)

Round 1: mr 6 [6]

Round 2: inc x6 [12]

Round 3-4: sc around [12]

Fasten off, stuff, and attach to body.


Tail

Round 1: mr4 [4]

Round 2: sc around [4]

Fasten off, sew in half, and attach to body.


Bow

Start with a mr with a long tail. Do not pull tight.

(ch 3, triple crochet 4 times. Ch 3 and ss into ring.) Repeat.

Pull mr tight and wrap the extra yarn around the middle of the bow, leaving enough extra yarn to sew to body.



Assembly Time:

Now, to begin, go ahead and attach the ears to the top of the head, I like to pin them so that the base is more of an oval than a circle, but I've also seen many people pinch them shut before attaching. After attaching the ears is when I like to embroider the face. I find it easiest to mark the center of the face by pinning a contrasting color string of yarn down the center of the head and proceeding to place pins where I think I'd like the eyes and nose to be. After the eyes and nose are sewn on, I like to add the whiskers.



After the head is all finished up, attach the head to the body, making sure it's all aligned properly. Next, go ahead and attach the feet, again, I like to pin these into a more oval shape, rather than a round one, it makes them look more... footy. After those feets are attached, sew on the tail. The tail is really going to be what helps hold her up, so pin it in a way that acts almost as a tripod. Moving on, attach the arms to her sides and then if you haven't added your skirt, go ahead and do that. For this pattern I decided to use the tie on skirt, mainly because I didn't feel like making two skirts, because I'm lazy, but also because I might want to change her skirt out in the future. After all that, you just have to sew on that classic Hello Kitty bow and you are all set!



I would LOVE to see your finished projects! Either tag me on Instagram (@cutiepie_crochet) or send me an email (crochet_things@yahoo.com)! And if you loved this pattern, consider pinning it to Pinterest, that'll really help more people to enjoy these patterns! (:

Thank you for sticking around until the end of this post, and I'll see you next Friday!
