Those who know Nyan Cat will definitely know the addictive theme song. I never knew what a Nyan Cat was until one of my friend requested if I could make one for her. I went to Google it and realized it’s this cute little bread-shape cat. Click on the YouTube video below if you’re curious what does a Nyan Cat do. I bet you simply can’t resist his cuteness.
That’s right, he hops around (non-stop) in the sky with rainbow rays behind him. After watching this video, I just can’t get the theme song out of my head! As I was making this little cat, I was humming the music while crocheting. It’s addictive. I like Nyan Cat because he is a simple looking cartoon yet he still looks so cute.
Here are some work in progress pictures of my little Nyan Cat.
I used gray, pink and yellow 8ply acrylic yarn and a 3.0mm crochet hook for this project. The patch elephant pouch is where i keep all my crochet hooks, needles and scissors.
It took me awhile to figure out how to crochet his rectangular body.
Look at this mess! I wanted to attempt to make a block shape like body instead of a pillow shape but I didn’t know how to join the block at the end. So I had to start all over again.
My 2nd attempt in making the body was better. These are pictures of the body. I crocheted in rows to create a rectangular shape and single crochet around the completed rectangle so it looks neater. I made 2 rectangles one for the front and one for the back, and a smaller pink rectangle to be sewn at the front of the body.
For the face, I crocheted an oval shape and stuff fiberfill in it. Then I added 2 triangular ears and 2 safety eyes.
These are pictures of the legs and the tail.
After completing all the parts, it’s time to piece them together. I made the legs a little too big, so I sewed them overlapping each other. It turned out not too bad hey?
And this is my completed Nyan Cat. I hope my friend like this new friend that I made specially for her. Nyan Cat is really excited to meet her. He is all set and ready to be delivered to her soon. Meanwhile,
Nyan Cat loves mingling around with the rest of my little yarn friends. Seems like they are having a great time.
But it’s time for Nyan Cat to leave. We’ll miss you Nyan Cat. Thanks for bringing so much smiles and laughter to all of us.
