This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This Cat in the Hat amigurumi was created for my little one, who went to see the Cat in the Hat puppet show at a children’s theatre. This crochet pattern is offered as a free PDF download in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday (March 2nd). This dabber cat makes a perfect reading buddy, don’t you think?

You will need:

  • Crochet hook G/4.0mm
  • Yarn needle
  • Fiberfill stuffing
  • Stitch marker
  • #4 medium worsted weight yarn


  • Finished size: approx. 10.3” height (top of ears to feet; hat alone measures 2.5”) x 3.2” width.
  • Pattern is written so that you can sew/attach the parts as you go, minimizing sewing at the end.
  • The legs, body and head are all worked in one piece.
  • This pattern uses mostly basic stitches such as sc (single crochet) and sc2tog (single crochet decrease).


  • This fully tested crochet pattern is in PDF format (9 pages, 1.1 MB in file size) and includes clearly written instructions (easy for beginners to understand), progress photos and stitch count for every round.
  • Doriyumi patterns are always written using standard U.S. crochet terminology. An abbreviation chart in U.S. versus U.K./Canada terminology is included in the pattern for your reference.
