To crochet a meditating cat, we will need wire – we will insert it into the front and back paws to give the desired pose. Optionally, you can also insert wire into the tail to increase its charm. 


mr – magic ring

ch- chain

sc – single crochet

Crochet with main color yarn. I have a ginger cat. 

Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR (6) 

Rnd 2: inc in each sc around (12) 

Rnd 3: (1 sc, inc)*6 times (18) 

Rnd 4: (2 sc, inc)*6 times (24) 

Rnd 5: (3 sc, inc)*6 times (30) 

Rnd 6: (4 sc, inc)*6 times (36) 

Here I attach a contrasting color yarn to make it easier to count rows (marker). 

Rnd 7 – 13 (7 rounds): 36 sc (36) 

Rnd 14: (3 sc, dec)*6 times (24) 

Rnd 15: (2 sc, dec)*6 times (18) 

Stuff the head with filling. 

Rnd 16: (1 sc, dec)*6 times (12) 

Rnd 17 – 18 (2 rounds): 12 sc (12) 

This is the neck. Stuff the head tightly. It’s very convenient to use a chopstick or a wooden pencil for this. Then continue crocheting the body. 


Rnd 19: (1 sc, inc)*6 times (18) 

Rnd 20: 18 sc (18) 

Rnd 21: (2 sc, inc)*6 times (24) 

Insert contrasting color yarn (marker). 

Rnd 22 – 27 (6 rounds): 24 sc (24) 

Rnd 28: (11 sc, inc)*2 times (26) 

Rnd 29: (12 sc, inc)*2 times (28) 

Rnd 30: (13 sc, inc)*2 times (30) 

Move the marker here. 

Rnd 31 – 32 (2 rounds): 30 sc (30) 

Rnd 33: (3 sc, dec)*6 times (24) 

Rnd 34: (2 sc, dec)*6 times (18) 

Stuff the body tightly with filling. 

Rnd 35: (1 sc, dec)*6 times (12) 

Rnd 36: 6 dec (6) 

Stuff completely. 

Close the opening, secure the yarn, cut, and hide the remaining end. 


Crochet with white yarn. Do not stuff the muzzle. 

Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR (6) 

Rnd 2: inc in each sc around (12) 

Rnd 3 – 7 (5 rounds): 12 sc (12) 

Rnd 8: 6 dec (6) 

Close the opening, secure the yarn, cut, leaving a long end for sewing the muzzle (about 50 cm). Sew it slightly below the middle of the head: in meditation, the chin is slightly lowered. 


Crochet with main color yarn (ginger). 

Rnd 1: 4 sc in MR (4) 

Rnd 2: inc in each sc around (8) 

Rnd 3: (3 sc, inc)*2 times (10) 

Rnd 4: (4 sc, inc)*2 times (12) 

Rnd 5: (5 sc, inc)*2 times, 1 hdc (14) 

Secure the yarn, cut, leaving an end for sewing the ears (see 30). Sew them to the head, considering that we need to create the illusion of a slightly tilted head. 

Next, we will embroider the nose and eyes with black or brown yarn. Cut a long enough piece of yarn, determine the position of the nose, secure the yarn in that place, and hide the end. Embroider the nose, smile, eyes, and eyebrows with the same yarn. Then, to hide the yarn, I return it to the nose and secure it under the embroidered nose. Cut and hide discreetly. 

Front and Back Paws: 

Start crocheting with white yarn. Stuff only the soles and palms loosely. Do not stuff the paw itself. 

Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR (6) 

Rnd 2: inc in each sc around (12) 

Rnd 3 – 5 (3 rounds): 12 sc (12) 

Rnd 6: 6 dec (6) 

Change the color to the main one (ginger) and continue crocheting 6 sc in each round to the desired length of the paw. For the back paws, they should be long enough to be placed in the desired pose. I made an additional 32 rounds with 6 sc each. The front paws are shorter – below the buttocks, approximately the length of the palm. I made 16 rounds with 6 sc each. Yarn thickness and crochet tension vary for everyone, so adjust according to your cat to make everything harmonious. 


Crochet with main color yarn (ginger). 

Rnd 1: 5 sc in MR (5) 

Rnd 2 onwards: 5 sc (5) 

Crochet the tail to the desired length (I made 15 rounds). 

Now we need to attach the paws and tail to the body. For the back paws, cut a long wire for both paws. Insert it into the body and bend the ends of the wire. Put the paws on the wire and sew them on. For the front paws, cut two pieces of wire slightly larger than the paws themselves (see photo), fold the ends, insert into the paws, and sew to the body. For the tail, cut a wire more than twice the length of the tail, insert it through the loop, twist, and fold the end. Put on the tail and sew it. Arrange our cat in a yoga pose. The cat is ready!
