CROCHET HELLO KITTY DOLL ************************ LEGAL NOTICE: This pattern is the sole property of Ernestine (Tina) Wells. Under no circumstances is this pattern to be sold or reproduced for monetary gain. By printing, downloading, saving, copying, linking, or using this pattern, you agree to these terms. Violation of these terms will result in legal action. My pattern is free and I intend to keep it that way. NOTES: Depending on the type of yarn and size of crochet hook you use will determin the size of your Kitty. The first Kitty I made I used size3 mercerised cotton yarn and size G/6/4mm crochet hook. This produced a Kitty that was about 7 inches tall. Using the same hook size and Lion Chenille Sensations stitched very tightly I made a second Kitty that was 5 inches tall. If you use heavier yarn such as chunky weight, you will probably get a Kitty that is about 8 or 9 inches tall. In all incidences I used luster sheen for the eyes and embroidery floss for the nose. To keep things simple, I made these instructions for the basic Kitty with a basic outfit. You can later make clothes for it yourself if you like. If you plan to do this, I would recommend doing the body white and changing to pink for panties half way down the body. Your choice! Oh yeah! If I misspelled anything, please don''t yell at me. The entire Kitty is crocheted in rounds (unless noted). There are no accomodations for the end of each row. When you get all the way around a row, do not ch st to move upwards for the next round (unless noted), just keep going. As you are working each round, you will find that the repeated stitches (Ex.sc5, inc1, repeat around) will not always add up to amount of stitches of that round. If the next round has inc/dec just treat the last inc from the previous round as the first inc for the next when the remaining # of sts before the inc is half or less and if it is greater than half don''t do the inc before beginning the next round. If there is no inc/dec on the next round, just leave off where you are and begin the next round. Clear as mud? You may also want to use a marker, saftey pin or string to mark the beginning/end of rounds so you can tell where to begin the next round. Believe me, it helps! OK OK the pattern... ---------------- HEAD: Using white yarn, ch3 + join with sl st to make loop. 1) ch1, sc8 in loop (be sure to work your yarn tail into these sts-after this round is done, pull on the tail to close up the hole then continue crocheting over the yarn tail for at least half of the next round) 2) sc2 in ea. st around 3) inc1, sc3, rep. around 4) rep. rnd 3 5) inc1, sc5, rep. around 6) inc1, sc7, rep. around 7) inc1, sc10, rep. around 8) inc1, sc15, rep. around 9) inc1, sc20, rep around 10-14) sc around 15) dec1, sc20, rep. around 16) dec1, sc15, rep. around 17) dec1, sc10, rep. around 18) dec1, sc7, rep. around 19) dec1, sc5, rep. around 20) dec1, sc3, rep. around BODY: (yet another note-if you want to, you can work in a spot to create a look of the kitty having a shirt under the jumpsuit but in the interest of keeping the pattern simple I am not giving the instructions to do so.)

If you have made a shirt under the jumpsuit, you wil want to use the color of the shirt here. If you are making clothes separate, continue to sc for 2 more rounds, bind off leaving a tail about 18" and you''re done. Sleeve- 8-9) sc around 10) ch1, turn, working in outside loop of st only for this round, sc around 11-13) working normally, sc around Bind off leaving about a 20" tail, turn sleeve down toward paw and tack stitch to arm then draw yarn up under sleeve to the opening.

Tack stitch to edge. EYES: Using black Luster Sheen 1) follow instructions for #1 of HEAD 2) ch1, sc2, inc1 in ea. of next 2 sts, sc2, inc1 in next 2 sts (if making kitty using chenille and it is stitched tightly, this will be large enough for an eye, follow the binding off instructions following #3) 3) (if making Kitty with size 3 cotton, do this round too) sc4, inc1 in ea. of next 2 sts, sc4, inc1 in next 2 sts bind off yarn leaving a tail about 24" long for stitching eyes on and whiskers on same side of head. NOSE: using gold (or pink if you prefer) embroidery floss Work same as for eyes. Bind of leaving a tail about 18" for stitching on. BOW: ch11, sk1 ch, sc accross, ch1, turn. Repeat for ten rows. While yarn is still attached, (bow wrap) ch9, sk 1ch, trc across 8sts, join to square with sl st, bind off leaving a long enough tail to stitch ''bow wrap'' in place and to stitch bow onto head. Now take the square and fold it in half corner to corner (bow wrap side to opposite side). now fold the bow wrap corner and opposite corner down so that bow wrap corner and opposite corner are on first fold, wrap the bow wrap around this and stitch in place. You will most likely have to stretch the bow wrap to get it all the way around... ...this is a good thing. ASSEMBLY: Stuff ears, arms and legs firmly. Be sure to push stuffing in real tightly and about 1/2" below edge to keep out of the way of stitching or it will be drawn out with the yarn and look messy. Use any sort of needle you like for stitching on the arms, legs, bow, etc. but you will need a sharp needle to do the eyes and whiskers. Stitch in their appropriate places. Stitch on nose so that the top of the nose is in line with the bottom of the ears and centered. Stitch eyes onto face with the bottom of the eyes aligned with the bottom of the nose referring to the picture for placement. Once you have an eye stitched on, use the remaining tail of yarn to stitch on the whiskers. To stitch the whiskers, be sure to dig your needle down into the stuffing so that the black yarn doesn''t show under the white face. Refer to the picture for the placement of the whiskers.
