Free Frankenkitty & Pumpkitten Halloween Cat Ornaments Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Happy Halloween, friends! While people have already moved on to making Christmas patterns, my Halloween loving self just couldn’t help it but put out one more Halloween amigurumi crochet pattern this year. Meet Frankenkitty and Pumpkitten!

Free Frankenkitty & Pumpkitten Halloween Cat Ornaments Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

I included the pattern for crocheted eyes below, but I prefer the look of the felt eyes more.

To make the felt eyes, cut out two 1-inch circles with Black felt and two 1.5-inch circles with Yellow felt. Glue the black circle onto the centre of the yellow circle and set the eyes aside for assembly. Using white wool roving and a felting needle, felt a small white circle onto the top left corner of the black part of the eyes.

Keep in mind that felting over dried glue is going to be a little bit more difficult. I personally don’t mind it, but if you’re having a hard time felting through the glued pieces, just felt it onto the black circles before you glue it together. Also, I recommend you make the eyes after you finish the head so that you can adjust the size of the eyes based on how big your cat’s head is.

Yarn I Used

I used WeCrochet Shine Sport Yarn for this ornament; however, you can use any yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn.

For the Pumpkitten, I used 13g of Black, and a little bit of Sweet Potato (or Grapefruit), Dandelion, and Macaw. For the Frankenkitty, I used 12g of Green Apple, and a little bit of Crocus and Wallaby. Optional: White or Cream yarn for eyes.



Gauge

5 Round Circle = 1.5” with a 2.75mm hook

Note: If you are working with an x-stitch (yarn under single crochet), you will need to go up a couple hook sizes. I recommend 3.25mm. 

Gauge isn’t super important for amigurumi, but I included it just in case you want to check your gauge. Being a little off should not affect the final product too much. You can learn more about how to measure gauge for amigurumi here!

The difficulty level of this pattern is Easy. There is a bit of basic embroidery involved.

The finished ornaments measure to be roughly 2” (5.25cm) tall (Frankenkitty) & 3” (7.5cm) tall (Pumpkitten).

This pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

  • For Frankenkitty, use Black embroidery thread to embroider in the eyebrows above the eyes, an inverted V-shape mouth one round below the nose, some lines where the Crocus coloured ear meets the head, and some scars randomly around the face.
  • For Pumpkitten, use White embroidery thread to embroider in an inverted V-shaped mouth one round below the nose and 3 lines onto each cheek.
  • To make them into ornaments, just string a piece of yarn through the top and tie a knot to create a loop.
