Cat’s Cafe Comics Crochet Doll Pattern

Cats Cafe Comics

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Cat’s Cafe comics, which is a webcomic created by Matt Tarpley. Cat’s Cafe comics centers around Cat and their friends as they visit Cat at their cafe. Rabbit and Penquin are regulars to the cafe (who I may do a pattern for in the future). Through Rabbit, in particular, we are taught how to talk about mental health. Rabbit suffers from a panic disorder and relies on Cat to help them cope. It is a heart-warming comic that is a place of understanding and acceptance where you can feel safe to be yourself.

For this pattern, I used a 3.5mm crochet hook, 12mm eyes, and Soft & Shiny size 4 in the color Yellow.

Abbreviations

sc = single crochet

ch = chain

st = stitch
