Cat Knitting: 14 Patterns for You and Your Feline

Your cat will love these patterns almost as much as the ball of yarn they were made from!

Updated September 07, 2018
Cat Knitting

The world needs more cat knitting patterns. Those goofy, lovable little creatures capture our hearts in unique ways every single day, and it's natural to want to knit for the people—or creatures—you love. After all, dogs get sweater patterns galore! It's time that cats got their moment in the limelight.

Whether you're a newly-minted cat guardian and you just brought you little, mewling kitten home from the shelter, or you're a long-time feline lover with more litterboxes than human bathrooms, you'll adore these patterns. This list includes cat toy patterns, cat clothes, and even cat-themed patterns for yourself for knitters of any skill level, so no preferences or levels of experience are left out.

Kitty Bow Tie

The best part about wedding invitations is that they usually don't explicitly tell you that you can't bring your cat. Surprise your friends on their big day with your adorable kitten dressed to the nines! (If you're worried about losing friends, maybe just dress him up at home.)

Make Your Cat 10x More Dapper

Insanely Adorable Kitten Mittens

If regular mitten patterns are just a bit too bland, turn them into cat knitting patterns! It's easy to embroider a sweet little kitty face onto otherwise normal-looking mittens, so you can bring your obsession with your cats out of your house, for once.

Kitty Egg Warmers

If you've never used egg warmers before, you're probaby an average person. Hey, why not start using them? These egg warmers give you an excuse to slap a cute little kitty face on yet another piece of your home decor. Plus, can't you imagine how adorable and fat they would look stuffed with an egg?

Catnip Bunnies

When humans chase after stimulants in a harried frenzy, it's generally frowned upon. When cats do it, it's freakin' adorable! Knit up little fluffy a rainbow of these quick and easy catnip bunnies for her birthday or gotcha-day and she'll be entertained (and a little crazy) for hours.

Knitted Cat Face Scrubby

What's that? Your kitchen is desperately lacking in cats? Fear not, fellow crazy cat ladies, we've got you covered. This scrubby will do an equally as amazing job of scrubbing dirt off your dishes as making you smile. Plus, check out that little tongue sticking out of his mouth! Who could resist it?

Quick Kitty Hat

Did your job send you home the last time you arrived at the workplace dressed up as a full-fledged cat? It's a bummer, but being an adult usually means you can't get away with dressing up like an animal. This hat is probably the most socially acceptable way to cat-ify yourself.

Transform Yourself Into Your Cat

Preppy Cat Vest

The last time your cat tried desperately to claw himself out of a sweater, did the thought ever cross your mind that maybe he just didn't like the sleeves? Try this vest next. Surely you'll be able to win his heart with the precious fair isle fish design or the sophisticated cable detailing.

Sweet Kitty Easy Knit Toys

We give our kids tiny dolls that match their hair and eye colors, so there's nothing wrong with gifting your kitty a facsimile of herself. You can even match the fur and eye color! If, somehow, that is crossing the line for you, these also make great stuffed friends for children.

Lucky Cat Sweater

Legend has it that this cat sweater is incredibly lucky. The minute you put it on your pet, he'll start finding mice everywhere, he'll get wet food every night, and his humans will stop grabbing his paws and snipping down his painstakingly-honed claws. It's not fair to your cat to not knit him this sweater.

Significantly Improve Your Cat's Way of Life

Kitty Ear Kid's Hat Pattern

Does your child or grandchild love cats? Even if she doesn't, there's nothing wrong with a healthy dose of projecting your own hobbies and preferences on younger family members. Knit the little one up an adorable cat hat (or three); bonus points if the yarn is the same color as her cat!

Orange Tabby Kitten Mittens

Behold: another pair of kitten mittens! After all, you're going to need a second pair for when the first get dirty. Maybe you're just a rabid tabby fan and have to represent your favorite kind of cat. If you knit up your cat hat in the same orange color, you'll really be stylin'.

Candy DIY Catnip Toy

Just because your cat stares at you every time you sneak a piece of chocolate out of the kids' Halloween candy stash doesn't mean you should give him any. Distract him with his very own catnip toy shaped just like a piece of candy! Sure, it doesn't have any tails to entice him, but he'll probably still swat it around a couple of times, anyway, giving you just enough time to grab some more candy.

Distract Your Cat

Cat Ears Headband DIY Pattern

Perhaps the weather is too warm for a hat, or you don't want to mess up your hair too much. You don't have to be left out of the cat knitting fun! Cat headbands are just as easy to make as cat hats, and still give you that purrfectly feline look you're craving. For best results, pair with cat wing eyeliner and long nails.

Become The Cat You've Always Wanted to Be

Fat Knit Cat Toy

Do your cats make you laugh? You can try to make them laugh, too, with a goofy carbon copy of themselves made from yarn! Sure, they'll probably just sniff it a couple of times and walk away, but it will still make a cute decoration in your living room. Knit one to match each of your cats!

LOVE! As a feline fanatic, I truly appreciate these knitting patterns for cats. I especially like the "Fat Knit Cat Toy." Too cute!

Aww, these are so cute! I am slightly disappointed because I thought I was going to see cats knitting but these are the next best things.

What a cute collection of cat related knitting projects. The mitts are adorable. I love the Cat-Tastic hoodie. My cats would never let me put it on them, but it is really cute. My cats love to fling the catnip bunnies through the air. I need to try the Knit your cat a cat pattern. It is a hoot.
