Talking Angela Free Amigurumi Pattern

 

First heard of Angela the cat when my friend told me how it is adored by her daughter Sara, and asked me to make that cat as amigurumi doll for her.

For all of you that don’t know who is that Angela, here is a picture of this adorably cute cat.angela_bg_8bit

Took me a few days, maybe more…almost  a month to research about this Angela cat and to figure out how to do that doll.

Encouraged myself this week to finally make it, and here it is what I came up with. My version of Angela the cat.

Even have the pattern done and ready if you would like to try making one. Have to say, that it is working pattern so some mistakes might be found. I did check it in written, but didn’t make time to make second and third Angela cat to be absolutely sure about this pattern. So keep that in mind if you decide making Angela.

For any details or further instructions please, feel free to ask. I do apologize for any mistakes or misunderstandings caused by my english, but am here to clear those as well :)

So here is the pattern! Hope you will enjoy making Angela!

Leg 2

 

Repeat from Row 1 to 26

After finishing Row 26 DON’T cut off the yarn.

Now take both legs together and put them side by side, toes pointing same direction. Tie both legs together for easier work to continue.

Starting with second leg, where we didn’t cut the yarn:

Sc5, ch1, continue stitching to next leg starting to stitch on the last stitch you worked on before tying off, sc15 (leave last stitch on this leg unstitched), ch1, leave unstitched 1st (first empty stitch after last one you stitched on this leg) sc10 (32)

Row 28:             sc 32

Pull out the yarn you left for sewing on the first leg made through the gap between the legs so it doesn’t get into your way while crocheting. We will use it later to sew and close this gap.

Outline the iris of the eye with two threads of blue embroidery yarn.

On upper black stitch embroider tiny white spark.

Outline the upper side of the eye with black embroidery thread to give it long lash kind effect.

To fill gaps on eyes or eye lashes, you can always use some markers to make tiny corrections.

Nose and mouth

Pink yarn

Sew the nose in between the exes (one row lower from the lowest eye line)

Sew triangle shape nose, across three horizontal stitches wide and the lowest part of vertical lines also three stitches long

From the lowest nose point, sew the mouth line pointing down, additional two stitches, and from there sew two stitches long line to each side to create mouth shape.

  1. Quite a swanky looking cat! Will wait for the finished pattern, as I don’t trust myself to fill in all the missing info. Thanks for sharing. The likeness is amazing!

  2. Dear Ellisen, the pattern is done. Published it in free patterns and is ready for use. Looking forward seeing your version of Angela. I am here for any assistance you might need or want from me.
    Thanks for the comment and good luck making your Angela.

  3. can you explain this part please.Row 2: starting second stitch from the hook sc4, 3sc in next sc, turn around as we are making stitches around the chain, sc3, 2sc in next sc (12). The part that said is when u said turn aound I also counted 14 stiches total. thank very much.

    • You have to work around the chain. Both sides. If not mistaken, you start with the ch6
      first side of the row (starting from the second ch from hook) sc4
      Then there is the last ch on this side. In that one make 3sc
      Continue working around the chain. sc3, and at last ch stitch (this side) sc2 in one stitch. That will give you 12 stitches around. (4+3+3+2)
      Hope this helped you a little. Let me know if you will need any further help.

  4. I mean after I do the sc4 and 3sc in the next sc I finish crocheting in the 5 holes of the chain so where do i crochet the sc3 and the 2sc? Thank you

    • Hope that previous message helped you understand where to stitch after you reach the end of the chain. You continue stitching at the other side.
      Basically, you have to stitch through same chain stitches twice, only different sides. Your last stitch will meet first one at the end of the row.You will close the ring (oval shape in this case).

  5. Hello,
    Thank for the pattern.
    I do it, but I don’t undestand (pardon for the writter,but I am french), About the arms : row 3-4 : 12, ok ! but row 5 : *inv.dec.* x3, sc3 (6) ??? isn’t (9) ???? And after how I do ????
    Please help. Thank.

    • Dear Lheraud,
      Thank you for your mail. Before I was to answer went to check the pattern to be sure what were you having problems with.
      Row 5: you have to decrease three times, but instead of usual 2 stitches decrease, you need to make decrease of three. So invisible (front loops only through three stitches, or if that is difficult, 3sctog)
      This will make you 3 stitches!
      After decrease are done, you have 3 normal single crochet stitches to do.
      At the end of this round there will be 6 stitches count.
      For the finger in next row. If pop corn stitch is difficult. try to make little chain instead (in the same place where pop-corn was ment to be) chain of 3-4 and slip stitch it on way back; continue next stitch as in the pattern.
      If you will need any further help, please feel free to ask. You can always e-mail me at amigurumibb@gmail.com for easier correspondence.
      Regards,
      Vanja
