Crocheted Panther Pattern

When my nephew asked me to make a black panther like a comic book hero of his, I came up with this pattern. You will need small quantities of red, yellow, blue and gray #10 thread for the mouth, eyes and cheeks. Embroidery thread may also work. The body is done in black #10 cotton thread. All you need to know is single crochet worked in rounds and the slip stitch. It is about 3-4 inches in a sitting position, depending upon hook size. I used a #7 steel doily size hook.

You may use a worsted or 4-ply yarn for a bigger animal. The size of the hook can be bigger or smaller, just make sure you crochet tightly, so when it is stuffed the white fiber fill stuffing doesn’t show through. The most difficult part is stuffing those tiny cheeks and getting those eyes to look a little scary and a lot appealing. Use good lighting since you are working in black thread, and it can be difficult to see the stitches.

There are many pieces to this that will be sewed to the head and body section, but I think that is what gives this cat its appeal. Have fun with it.
