It took me a while to get this website running but it’s finally here! Hope you are enjoying it and hope you will be always coming back.
First, my name is Ana and I am the human behind MysteriousCats, Tommy is the cat. I learned how to crochet not so long ago, using all the amazing material available on the internet. I totally recommend it if you don’t have anybody to teach you.
Crochet for me now is a passion, it gives me the freedom to create whatever I want. There are really no limits and that is the beauty of it! And I love sharing the results of my yarn adventures with you.
Today I decided to tell you how to make a cat beanie. Sounds appropriate for the first post of MysteriousCats.com. I love how cute Tommy looks wearing it and I can tell you I made him loads of different ones. One thing is for sure, Tommy does not like them at all but I am a silly cat owner, what can I do?
I must first tell how this idea of a cat beanie started… Some years ago, I tried a sock as a beanie for Tommy and he seemed quite happy with it so I thought I better make him a proper one! How wrong I was, as cats seem to dislike anything that is made specially for cats.
MysteriousCats Cat Beanie
– Aran yarn
– 5 mm / H hook
– cat for measurements (the most difficult part)
Rnd 1: start with 6 sc on magic ring.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in every st around. (12sts)
Rnd 3: *1 sc in next st, 2sc in next st*. Repeat from * around. (18sts)
Rnd 4: *1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * around. (24 sts)

That’s the size necessary for Tommy’s head, if your cat’s head is smaller skip some rounds or if it’s bigger continue increasing it.

Rnd 13: using bck loop only, sc around
Rnd 14 – Rnd 15: sc around.
Rnd 16: sc around. Sl st in next st.
