Free Crochet Cat Rug Pattern: How To Make It?

If you love cats and crochet, you might want to make a cozy and cute cat rug for your furry friend.

A cat rug is a simple and fun project that can be customized to suit your cat’s personality and preferences.

You can choose different colors, shapes, sizes, and textures to create a unique and comfortable mat for your cat to nap on.

In this article, we will show you how to crochet a cat rug using a free, easy-to-follow, and beginner-friendly pattern.

You will need some basic crochet skills, such as making a magic circle, working in the round, and changing colors. You will also need some bulky yarn, a crochet hook, a tapestry needle, scissors, and some toy stuffing or fiberfill.

Materials And Tools

To make a crochet cat rug, you will need the following materials and tools:

Yarn

You can use any type of yarn you like, but I recommend using a bulky or super bulky yarn for a soft and fluffy rug. You can also use multiple strands of thinner yarn held together for a similar effect.

For this pattern, we used Bernat Blanket yarn in white and gray.

Crochet Hook

You will need a crochet hook that matches the size of your yarn.

For bulky or super bulky yarn, you will need a large hook, such as 10 mm or 12 mm. You can also use a smaller hook for a tighter and denser fabric, but it will take longer to crochet.

Tapestry Needle

You will need a tapestry needle to weave in the ends of your yarn and to attach the ears and tail to the rug.

Additionally, you will need a pair of scissors to cut the yarn when you finish your project.

Toy Stuffing Or Fiberfill

You will need some toy stuffing or fiberfill to stuff the ears and tail of your cat rug.

Similarly, you can also use scrap yarn or cotton balls for this purpose.

Safety Eyes (optional)

You can add some safety eyes to your cat rug to make it more realistic and adorable. You can also embroider the eyes with yarn or use buttons instead.

Please note that safety eyes can pose a choking hazard for children under age 3, so if you plan to give your cat rug to a child, it’s best to avoid them.

Pattern Instructions

The crochet cat rug consists of three parts: the body, the head, and the tail. You will make each part separately and then sew them together.

The body is worked in the round in a spiral, while the head and tail are worked in rows and then seamed. The pattern uses US crochet terms and abbreviations.

Body

The body of the crochet cat rug is a simple circle that is worked in the round using single-crochet and double-crochet stitches.

You will start with a magic circle and increase every round until you reach the desired size. You can change colors as you like to create stripes or other patterns.
