Stuff each part, except the ears and the tail. Make sure to use the wrong side of the single crochet as the outside fabric.
Attach the eyes, nose, and mouth to the head. Embroider the mouth, as shown in the diagram.
Sew all parts together. Curl end of tail and sew the tail to the back.
Press the feet into a flat shape and embroider the toes, as shown in the diagram.
Tie the scarf around the cat’s neck as a finishing touch.
For the white cat, follow the instructions in the chart.
