Learn to make Cat Butt Coasters!

To purchase a PDF, add free version of this pattern, you can do that via THIS LINK at a very low price.    

If there's one thing all cat lovers know to be true, it's that at a cat will ALWAYS present, and offer you their butt, and you have no choice but to accept.   That was the inspiration for this fun and quick pattern.

For this project, I decided to use Lily Sugar 'N Cream 100% Cotton Yarn in Coral Rose and Overcast.  I chose this yarn because it's an affordable sturdy cotton yarn that you can throw in the wash over and over again.  If you wish, you can substitute any other worsted weight cotton yarn you prefer

This a great project for those left over balls of yarn that aren't quite big enough to make much of anything with.  You can mix and match all sort of colors to create a unique look and even replicate your own cat's butt!

These are also great if you upcoming craft shows and fairs.

What You'll Need:

Pattern Notes:

Pattern is worked in the round (we will not be turning until specified), with a slip stitch (sl st) to join at the end of reach row 

Chain (ch) 1 at the end of a row/round does not count as a stitch 

Repeat stitch pattern between * - * until the end of the round/row

Total count of stitches per round/row will appear in ( - ) at the end

Gauge is not important for this project.  With suggested materials, your cat butt will measure approximately 4 inches across the center.

Skill Level:  Easy

Terms Used (US Crochet Terminology)
  • SC:  Single Crochet
  • MR:  Magic Ring
  • HDC:  Half Double Crochet
  • DC:  Double Crochet
  • Sl St:  Slip Stitch
  • CH:  Chain
  • INC:  Increase (two stitches in the same space)
  • Sk St:  Skip Stitch
  • F/O:  Fasten off


Starting with Coral (Pink) yarn"

R1 8 HDC in MR (8)

F/O and hide ends

Attach secondary color (this is the color of your cat) secure with Ch 1

R2 2 HDC in each stitch, sl st to join, ch 1 (16)

R3 *1 HDC in next st, Inc* sl st to join, ch 1 (24)
R4 *1 HDC in next 2 sts, Inc*  sl st to join, ch 1  (32)
R5 *1 HDC in next 3 sts, Inc*  sl st to join (40)

Place a stitch marker in the last sl st.

F/O and weave in end. 

This next part may get a bit "wordy" as we have to place 5 more stitch markers to block off the legs/feet for your cat.  Follow along with the steps below and reference the photo if you get confused.

Starting with first stitch marker, count 20 stitches in either direction and mark this stitch (this is the center point that we will base the legs off of).

From the second stitch marker, count over two (2) stitches in BOTH directions and mark each of these stitches (you should now have a total of 4 stitch markers)

From the 3rd and 4th stitch marker, count over another two (2) and place and your last two stitch markers (this blocks off the legs)


Right Leg:
R1     Starting with the right foot, attach your cat color yarn and SC 4 across the body (you should end at the other stitch marker for your leg)

R2     1 SC in each st, ch 1 turn (4)
R3     1 SC in each st (4)

F/O hide tail

Left Leg:

R1     With the right side of the work facing you, attach a new piece of yarn, SC 4 across the body to the other stitch marker. ch 1 and turn (4)

If the right side is facing you, you should be starting with the stitch marker furthest from the right foot and ending two stitch over from the second stitch marker that was placed.

Continue as with right foot (do not fasten off after the end of R3)

Border and Tail:

CH 1, instead of turning, we are going to work right into the last SC of R3

Start working SC stitches down the left leg leg and towards the right leg.  Continue working SC's around the right leg and up towards the first stitch marker placed.  Stop at the last SC before this stitch marker.

Ch 12

Being careful not to twist your chain

DC in 2nd stitch from hook and next two stitches.

3 DC in next stitch (you should have 6 DC at this point)

1 DC in the remaining 6 chains.

Attach to the body with a SC, skipping over the st with the stitch marker.

Continue to SC along the body until you arrive at the point where we started the SC border

F/O hide ends

If you know me, or follow me on social media you'll know that gaming is one of the few things I do as much as I crochet.  Recently, they remastered and released the first 3 Spyro games - and let me tell you, this girl has gotten in her Spyro time.  

A few nights ago, in a complete crochet slump, I spent the night playing the third installment, Spyro: Year of the Dragon - when the inspiration hit me.  I had chased down an Egg Thief.  He bobbed, I weaved (flew off a cliff, it happens).  When i caught him, an adorable baby dragon popped out of the egg.   I knew I needed 1,…

Some of you may be familiar with Sammy's friend, Tony Smokes (below).  Tony is available as a purchase only pattern on my Etsy Shop.  Both Tony and Sammy came to me in a moment of ... inspiration 😅but it took a while before I put hook to yarn and completed the pattern for Sammy.  I'm so happy I did, and that I get to share this with you all for free.

Pro Tip:
