Now, if you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I love the bubble stitch. Sometimes it’s called the bobble stitch, but I prefer bubble. Just ’cause. So when I decided to make a bubble skirt on this cat, it was set!

Pattern Notes:

  • All parts of this cat, aside from the skirt, are worked in continuous rows. You will not slip stitch at the end of each round, so it is highly recommended that you use a stitch marker to put into the last stitch of each round.
  • I use Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! For this pattern. This is listed as medium weight, but it is lighter than many medium weight yarns such as Red Heart Super Saver and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice. Just be aware that the gauge may change depending on the yarn you use.
  • There will be a photo tutorial in the pattern for working the bubble stitch.
  • The invisible decrease (inv dec) is simply a single crochet 2 stitches together done only in the front loops. If you’d rather just do a simple decrease, you are welcome to, but it will be noticable. 
  • Ch 1 does NOT equal a stitch.
  • Ch 3 DOES equal a double crochet.
  • When stuffing the cat with poly-fil, the best strategy to take is adding a little bit at a time while you are crocheting. If you add it all at once, it will be hard to keep it smooth. Make sure to pull the poly-fil apart with your hands before stuffing it into the cat.
  • It’s important to count the rows, so a row counter is highly recommended.
  • Follow the following guide for how number of stitches is communicated:
    • The number before the stitch is the amount of times worked in one stitch
    • The number after the stitch is the number of stitches you are to work that specific stitch into.
    • When stitches are surrounded by asterisks (*), you are to repeat what is between the asterisks the amount of times stated.
    • Number in parentheses is the number of stitches in each round. 
    • Eg. “*2sc, sc 4* 6 times (36)” means “2 single crochets in first stitches, single crochet once in next 4 stitches. Repeat this pattern 6 times. (There are 36 stitches in this round.)
