Have you ever played with a roly poly toy? I had one as a child, and was absolutely in love with how it would wobble when pushed, but wouldn’t fall over. I was inspired to make myself a crochet toy with the same shape!

This Roly Poly Cat in a Dress is approximately 5 inches / 13 centimetres tall, when made with a 3.5mm hook and DK (#3) yarn. :) If you make it with another size of hook / weight of yarn, it will increase or decrease in size accordingly.

Both US and UK terms are available for this pattern.

Materials required:

  • DK yarn (#3) - less than 30g
  • A small amount of embroidery thread for the facial details
  • 3.5mm crochet hook
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Stuffing
  • Yarn / tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers

Skills required:

  • Magic ring / circle
  • Crocheting in the round
  • US single crochet / UK double crochet
  • US double crochet / UK treble crochet
  • Slip stitch, chain stitch
  • Increasing and decreasing
  • Changing the colour of yarn used
  • Sewing (for the ears!)

Level: Intermediate. (You should be able to crochet, at least!)

Language: English
