“Crochet Kittens” amigurumi kit

I have kept this secret for so long time, but not anymore. In a co-operation with The Book Shop from New York and Sterling Publishing we`ve published “Crochet Kittens” amigurumi kit and a booklet. It`s an exclusive product for US market and will be sold at Barnes and Noble.

The booklet includes 10 brand new designs. I´ve focused on including cats in different size, way of construction and skill level. All of them are created about a year ago, but I wasn`t allowed to show them to you until now. So here you are to browse the gallery and get to know all of them.

When I accepted this offer I was actually quite scared of how I will manage. As you know cats have never been my theme (Although I adore my own furry friends so much! One of them is on the photos as well, guess he scent the cat smell :)). But as I started working my hesitations slowly disappeared. One design led to another. Have you ever experienced it?! You make something and it gives you inspiration for the next project. Happily it happened to me this time as well, so after completing all 10 cats for this booklet I couldn`t stop and made some extra patterns (Meow cat and Rag doll cat) for my shop.

The kit includes materials for making 2 smaller cats – the green one called Tiny Kitten and the purple one named Playful Kitten. There is yarn, crochet hook, stuffing, safety eyes and even thread for stitching the nose.

The book is small, so it`s quite handy if you want to take it with you and crochet on the go.

So if making some cute cats feels right for you at the moment, then go and grab the crochet kit from Barnes&Noble shop or webshop.

Please note! The book won`t be sold separately. Also the patterns are written exclusively for this book and won`t become available online.

    I received this kit as a gift, with the Marine Cat Couple. I am almost done & have realized I am not going to have enough gray. How can I get a bit more?

      Hi, Laura! It`s so sad to hear there`s not enough yarn in the box. My part was only to write patterns for the booklet and I have no responsibility on the materials included in the kit. I´m sorry, I can`t help you. I don`t even know which yarn it is.

    I bought this kit and it sat for a couple years until I opened it up while under quarantine for 20 days, and started crocheting! I haven’t been able to stop and I just love creating now. Thank you for introducing me into this beautiful world of crochet!

      This feedback makes my heart sing!!! So happy for you, and that you`ve found amigurumi :) I´m so glad to be part of your little journey.

      Hi, Kelli! This is strange, because in the sample kit they sent me, there was a crochet hook included. I´ve used 3 mm hook throughout the kitten booklet.

    My comment is a little overdue, since I purchased this kit a while ago, but I still wanted to say thank you. I have been crocheting on and off since I was a child (I’m now 61 years old). I don’t usually purchase kits, but decided this was the safest way to explore the world of amigurumi. I’m so glad I started with YOURS. Your directions are crystal clear, the photos are helpful, and your creations are adorable. I started by making the purple kitten for one of my daughters and the black kitty for my other daughter. They were delighted! I learned so much from your book, that even as somewhat a novice with amigurmi, I am able to modify and improve other patterns I’ve used. Next up is the siamese kitty – a gift for my mother-in-law. Thank you for your inspiration and instruction.

      Hi! I couldn`t be happier with this feedback. Creating amigurumi toys brings a lot of joy to me, and it means a lot if people feel it when they use my patterns. Thank you so much for sharing this with me!

    I bought this as a gift for my wife last Christmas at the Barnes and Noble at Union Square, New York. It was collecting dust, and I was getting a little upset, but she finally opened it up last week, and now she’s hooked! Her first kitten she made is a gift for an expecting friend’s baby. I went shopping with her the other day because she wanted to buy more yarn and crocheting materials. Thank you for opening my wife to this hobby. She loves it. I wish I could send the photo of her first kitten, but I think it looks good.

      Hello, Kristoffer! Your comment almost made me cry. It`s one of the moments I feel that I´m doing the right thing. Thank you so much for sharing the story with me! I would be more than happy if you`d also share a photo. You can email it to me at lilleliis@gmail.com
      Many greetings to your wife!
