Is there a cat on Your head? There isn't?! Oh no... I feel so sorry for You :) I have a good news for You, You can change it right know with my free crochet pattern.
I am in love with the idea of crochet hair clips and accessories so the cat is definitely the first of the series, one I have ready already is a pony so this will probably be my next post.
But back to the kitten - he is cute and little and white, perfect for every little and not so little girl (or a boy). If I didn't sale You the idea yet I can tell You he looks great on every hair color - I checked, and both on loose hair and as a decoration of a pony tale - as You can see on the photos. Another adventure is that he is ease to make even for a beginner and not that time consuming for the impatient ones.
All You need to make him is a white and black yarn plus a hair clip - You can buy one or use some old and unused ones.
- white, black yarn ( I use the yarn which gauge is 24.0 to 30.0 sts = 4 inches )
- hook 3 mm
- cotton wool or other filament.
- hairclip ( Mine is the black basic clip almost 5 cm)

All cat parts are finished now. They should look more or less like that:
Take a bit of filament and stuff body to make a little cute butt.
Now take two paws and sew them in front of the body, just like shown on the photos.
Take the black yarn and make two lines on each of the front paws. They look more like paws now, You can do it on the back paws two if You like.
Sew the tail and back legs.
Sew ears almost on the back of the head.
Now it's time to make eyes. Take black yarn and embroider two circular eyes.
You can make white reflections with white thread or yarn if You like. It will make him even cuter.
Sew head to the body.
Last step is attaching the hair clip. You can glue it or sew it.
I sewed my clip to the cat.
THE END! Cat is ready to wear!
