Kitty Costume Pattern

I use a size K (6.50 MM) hook and Red Heart Yarn for poptarn and a size F (3.75 MM) hook for rainbow.

For poptart:

Rw 1: With pale pink, Ch 18, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and across. (16 hdc)

Rw 2 and 3: Ch 2,turn, hdc in same st and across. (16 hdc in each row)

Rw 4 – 8: (Now creating one side of the poptart) Ch 2, turn, hdc in same st and next 2 st. (3 hdc in each row) Fasten off.

Rw 4-8 of other side. (Creating the other side of the poptart.) Jn with a sl st in the opposite side of Row 3. Now Repeat Row 4-8.

Rw 9: Turn and loosely sl st 3 st back to the top of the first hdc in row 8 so you can begin row 9 from there. Or if you want you can fasten off and join back at the beginning with a sl st. Ch 2, turn again, hdc in same st and in next 2 st, ch 10, hdc in each of the 3 st on the other side now forming the center square of the costume. (6 hdc, ch-10)

Rw 10: Ch 2, turn, hdc in same st and across putting 10 hdc in each of the 10 ch. (16 hdc)

Rw 11 and 12: Repeat Rw 2 and 3. (16 hdc in each row)

Border with pale pink: Ch 2, turn, 2 hdc in same st which will make a corner when you come all the way around and add one more hdc in it. Hdc in each st around, adding about 17 hdc along each side and putting 3 hdc in each corner. Hdc in last corner and Jn with a sl st in top of 1st hdc. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Border with tan: Jn with a sl st in any corner. Work in back loops only around poptart. Ch 2,  2 hdc in same st which will make a corner when you come all the way around and add one more hdc in it. Hdc in each st around, adding about 19 hdc along each side and putting 3 hdc in each corner. Hdc in last corner and Jn with a sl st in top of 1st hdc.

Rainbow Trail:

Switch to a size F (3.75 MM) hook.

Rw 1: Note this as right side. Ch 38, dc in 3rd ch from hook and in next 9 ch, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch. dc in next 11 ch, skip next 4 chs, dc in next 11 ch. Fasten off. Jn with next color with a sl st in last st. Ch 2, turn.

Rw 2: Working in front loops only, dc in same st and in next 9 sts, dc dec once, dc in next 11 sts, (dc, ch 3, dc) in the next ch-3 space, dc in last 11 sts. Fasten off. Jn with next in the same st with a sl st. Ch 2, turn.

Rw 3: Working in back loops only, dc in same st and in next 11 st,(dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 space, dc in next 11 sts, dc dec once, dc in last 11 sts. Fasten off. Jn with next color in the same st. Ch 2, turn.

Rw 4:  Working in front loops only, dc in same st and in next 9 sts, dc dec once, dc in next 12 sts, (dc, ch 3, dc) in the next ch-3 space, dc in last 13 sts. Fasten off. Jn with next in the same st with a sl st. Ch 2, turn.

Rw 5: Working in back loops only, dc in same st and in next 13 st,(dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 space, dc in next 12 sts, dc dec once, dc in last 10 sts. Fasten off. Jn with next color in the same st. Ch 2, turn.

Rw 6:  Working in front loops only, dc in same st and in next 9 sts, dc dec once, dc in next 12 sts, (dc, ch 3, dc) in the next ch-3 space, dc in last 15 sts. Fasten off. Weave in all ends.

Place rainbow along poptart where you’d like to sew it in place. Use poptart colored yarn to stitch the rainbow in place.

If you would like for the costume to be more stiff, I trace the costume on cheap foam board from Wal-Mart and then cut it out with a box cutter making sure it’s much wider than the poptart head center and smaller than the rainbow and the outside of the poptart and then I sew it in place with yarn.

Try on angry cat and take dozens of pictures. Check shoes later to make sure there is no vengeful hairball inside.

      Wow! You found so many adorable costumes to share! Thanks for the attention! 🙂 My Mizzy Kitty is really easy to get along with, haha! She lets me dress her up and barely even wakes up from her naps if that’s what she happens to be doing when I try to convince her to model!
