Here it is! The Zombie Cat Plushie Crochet Pattern! I wanted to create a flat crochet plushie and decided to create a zombie cat. And yes, I know it’s nowhere near Halloween. Also not one hundred percent sure if there is an actual zombie cat pattern out there though hey here’s another one world! This pattern took a week like all my patterns do. The amount of times I unraveled is too many times to count the results always pay off! The yarn I used for this pattern is yarn I dyed. This yarns creation was a huge accident and at least I know where I went wrong. This accident yarn dye turned into an amazing whoops! Here is a closer look at the yarn.
This was a great accident and I’m glad I got to use this yarn for this amazing purpose. I still have a little bit of this yarn over and may use it for hair on whatever crochet pattern I whip up in the future or next. Here is a closer look at the cat. There are more pictures of the zombie cat with my black cat Cleopatra though we call her Cleo.

- First, decide which way you way your cat to face the left or right. I picked the right.
- Let’s start with the arms of the zombie cat. I added two little claw marks on the arm like the picture below. I went over the mark once more to thicken the claws. Align both the arms together and sc around. F/O
- Now grabbing the Zombie Cat front body sew on the arm. You can apply a # on the cat or get creative. Put the front of the cat body down for now.
- With the tail bend your pipe cleaner in half. Slide the pipe cleaner into the tail and cut off any remaining pipe cleaner sticking out. Sew the tail closed.
- With the back of the body and tail. Attach the cat tail about 1-2 rows in. You want to sew the tail on the inside of the back body. So, therefore, when you apply the front of the body the tail looks neat.
- Sc around font/back body. When you get to the tail area only sc the front body (come back here and sew it in closed). Make sure to stuff your zombie kitty! It’s up to you if you want to overstuff or not overstuff your zombie cat. F/O weaving in ends.
- Next, let’s sew the feet together! Before sewing, the feet together apply the claws like so.
- Sc around. Try to start at the top so therefore when you F/O you can easily sew these feet on.
- Apply the feet at row 2 on the body.
- With the felt cut out triangle for your zombie cat ears! Sew your felt onto the ears. Stuff your ears and sew the ears closed! Put the cat ears to the side for now.
- Determine your zombie cats face. I decided that my zombie cat was going to have 1 eye, 1 x eye, a little nose/mouth and # on its face. Here is a closer look at my zombie cats face.
- Once you are done applying these to the cat align the back and front face of the zombie cat. SC around and stuff your zombie cat face lightly. F/O weaving in ends.
- Apply your Zombie Cats ears towards the back of the cats head like so
- Now here comes the really, really fun part. Attach the zombie cats head to the body. I applied my Zombie cat head on the body at row 2 from the top. Doing this the cat head was floppy. It to top heavy and I already did the deed and sewed everything in. Whoops. Thankfully my husband gave me the idea of giving the zombie cat stitches/sewing on the head idea. So with the head already sew on, I brought the head down more towards the cat arm. I started sewing in all around front and back. I did this twice around. Here’s a picture closer to the front and back
- This is the front
- This is the back
