FREE Ghost Kitty Ragdoll Pattern!

If you are into following bakers and cake makers online, there is a good chance you know Hayley Cakes & Cookies, an amazingly talented maker based in Austin.

I follow them and came across their amazing GHOST KITTY COOKIE! I mean come on, how cute is this?! You can find all their amazingness here on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheHayleyCakes?ref=l2-shopheader-name

I REALLY loved it, and when I really love something, I want to crochet it!! So, I emailed them on Etsy and asked for permission to create their design in crochet as it is very important to me to take care to do that! I didn’t think they would have the time to even reply honestly. Imagine my happy level, when the reply came through, “Crochet away!” And… so I did. I am so so pleased with how it turned out and hope you enjoy!

A few things… I ask that you only share the link to this pattern page when sharing. Please do not ever copy and paste the info and share anywhere. Please do not alter the pattern a little or a lot and claim as your own for paid or for free. These few things allow me to keep creating for you!

Let’s begin:

  • small amounts of worsted weight yarn in light and dark pink, lime green, and black
  • about 150 yards white worsted weight yarn
  • size G crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge as show after row 14 in pattern
  • tapestry needle, scissors, tape measure
  • small amount of stuffing
  • glue gun and glue sticks if you choose the glue assembly method

Ears:

Position as shown and join white yarn with a sl st from the side in end of marked Row 52 as shown by the hook in the photo, ch 1:

 

Row 1: sc in end of same row and nxt 4 rows. (5)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. (5)

Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt st, sc dec over last 2 sts. (3)

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in last st. (2)

Row 6: ch 1, turn, sc dec over the 2 sts, ch 1 more to finish off nicely and cut yarn. (1)

Position the piece the same as you did for the 1st each, but join now in the end of the 56th row that you marked, ch 1:

Rows 1-4: Repeat rows 1-4 as for other ear.

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc in 1st st, sc dec over last 2 sts. (2)

Row 6: Repeat as for row 6 of other ear.

Arms (Make 2):

With white yarn and G hook, leave long beginning tail to sew to body later and chain 7:

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each rem ch. (6)

Row 2-3: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. (6)

Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc dec over 1st 2 sts, sc in nxt 2 sts, sc dec over last 2 sts. (4)

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc in 1st st, sc dec over nxt 2 sts, sc in last st. (3)

Using the long beginning tail and the photo as a guide, sew row 1 of arm to either side of body. They should sit just below where the neck tapers in.

Join with sc edge round:

Weave in all ends to this point. Stack the two body panels on top of each other. WORKING THROUGH BOTH LAYERS AT ONCE TO JOIN, join the white yarn with a sl st in the tip of the tail, shown at the “x”.

 

STUFF BODY NOTE: You will stuff the piece GENTLY (remember it is a ragdoll so you want some body to it, but it should remain fairly flat.) I stuffed each ear and the head when I was around the head, then the body and tail about 10 sts before closing the round completely.

Rnd 1: ch 1, remembering to work through both layers,  make 3 sc in the tip of the tail, make one sc in each st and end of row around, at the top either side of each hand make 2 sc to round the corner, at the tip of each ear also work 3 sc in the same st, once around, sl st to 1st sc made and cut yarn.

Nose:

With the bright pink yarn, and E hook (or two sizes smaller than what you used to achieve gauge for body panels), make a magic ring, ch 1:

Rnd 1: (ch 1, 2 hdc, sc, ch 2, sc, 2 hdc, sl st) all in the magic ring, pull tail tightly to close.

Using the end tail, sew the nose to the face. If you have chosen the glue, knot end tails tightly together, trim, then glue the nose in position using the photo as a guide. You can also use the end tails to sew shut any hole that remains in the center from the magic ring.

Inner Ears (Make 2):

With the light pink yarn and E hook (or two sizes smaller than body), ch 3:

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and nxt ch. (2)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc dec over the 2 sts. (1)

Edge: ch 1, do not turn, sc in the end of each of the 2 rows down the side, make 3 sc in each sc along the bottom of row 1, sc in the end of each of the 2 rows up the 2nd side, (sc, ch 2, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc) all in the single sc at the tip, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn.

Using the end tail, sew one inner ear to each ear on the main body. If you have chosen the glue, knot end tails tightly together in the rear, trim, then glue on inner ear to each ear.

Paws:

Repeat through twice, once for each hand.

Larger Dot

With the lighter pink and E (or two sizes smaller than body), make a magic ring:

Rnd 1: ch 1, 6 sc in ring, sl st to 1st sc made, cut yarn. (6)

Smaller Dot

Note: Doing the smaller dots like this almost requires the use of the glue because they are so small. If you opt for sewing only, you may replace the smaller dots with simple French knots sewn directly onto the paws instead.

Row 1: ch 2, sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch 1, cut yarn.

  • Using the photo as a guide, sew the larger dot to the hand (or glue into position). Knot the beginning and end tails together and trim short. When attaching with glue I rub the ends into the glue with the tip of the glue gun to secure them, then press the dot into place on the hand.

Eyes:

Main Eye:

With green and G hook, make magic ring, ch 1:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in ring, do not join round. (6)

Rnd 2: Do not turn, 2 sc in each st around, do not join. (12)

Rnd 3: Do not turn, (sc in nxt sc, 2 sc in nxt sc) six times total, sl st to 1st sc made, cut yarn. (18)

Pupil:

With black and E hook, ch 4:

Rnd 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in nxt ch, (sc, ch 2, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc) all in the last ch, working up the opposite side of the beginning ch in the remaining free loop, hdc in nxt  ch, (sc, ch 2, sl st in 2nd ch from hook) in last ch, sl st to 1st sc made, cut yarn.

Eyelid:

With black and E hook, tighly chain 6. Sew this onto the top edge of the eye already on the face, positioned starting at the 10 o’clock position and ending at the 2 o’clock position. Use a strand of black yarn and needle and sew the three eyelashes on the outer edge of the eye using the photo as a guide.

Sew the black pupil centered on the green eye. With a strand of white yarn, sew a large eye sparkled and small eye sparkle. Both the sparkled on both eyes are on the right side of the eye, larger on bottom smaller on top. Go around 2-3 times for the large dot and 1-2 times for the smaller. Knot the tail for the sparkles behind the eye and trim. Sew the green eye onto the face. If you are gluing, glue all into position.

Repeat all of the above for the second eye.

Mouth and Whiskers:

Split a black length of yarn in half and use only 2 of the 4 plies. Stitch a “W” shape centered under the bottom of the heart nose. Stitch three whiskers to either side of the face. Use the photo as a guide throughout.

And you are done!

Weave in all ends. Repeat as many times as desired lol!
