Cats Reporting

There is a web comic called Breaking Cat News, it would be fair to say that I am deeply involved in the lives of the cats it portrays, or you could just say obsessed. The premise is three (now four) cats that live in an apartment and report on the goings on in said apartment.

Due to my, lets call it, obsession, I have made a few fan crochet items from the comic. Here is one of them, the essential microphone.

I do use them at times, along with my partner, when we read the comics aloud.

The images in this post are my little reporters, each with their own microphone.


What You Will Need:

2.5mm hook;


Small amount of grey, black, and light aqua cotton yarn;



Small amount of stuffing;



Tapestry needle.




This pattern in worked in one continuous round. Use a stitch marker and move it up each round to indicate the first stitch of the round.


The Microphone:

Start by using grey, chain 2



Round 1: 5sc into the first chain (5 sc)



Round 2: 2sc into each sc around (10 sc)




Round 3: *sc into the next sc, 2sc into next sc*, repeat from * to * around (15 sc)




Round 4: *sc into the next 2 sc, 2sc into next sc*, repeat from * to * around (20 sc)


Round 5: *sc into the next 3 sc, 2sc into next sc*, repeat from * to * around (25 sc)



Round 6: sc into each sc around (25 sc)




Round 7: sc into each sc around (25 sc)




Round 8: *sc into the next 3 sc, sc2tog*, repeat from * to * around (20 sc)




Round 9: *sc into the next 2 sc, sc2tog*, repeat from * to * around (15 sc)




Round 10: *sc into the next sc, sc2tog*, repeat from * to * around (10 sc), change to black on the last stitch. Stuff microphone head firmly.




Round 11: sc into each sc around (10 sc)




Round 12: sc in next 3 sc, skip sc, sc in next 3 sc, skip sc, sc in last 2 sc (8 sc)




Round 13: sc into each sc around (8 sc)




Round 14 - 24: sc into each sc around (8 sc)




Round 25: sc2tog around (4 sc).


Stuff handle of microphone.


Fasten off and weave in ends.




News Station Emblem




Using light aqua, chain 9

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across (8 sc)




Row 2 - 5: turn, ch1, sc in each sc across (8 sc)




Fasten off and weave in ends.


Using tapestry needle and black embroider “CN” onto emblem.
Use the black to sew onto microphone just under the head of the microphone.


Fasten off and weave in ends.


Since this is a piece of fan crochet, I do not own the copyright to this, that belongs to Georgia Dunn of Breaking Cat News, and would as that you also respect this and do not sell any items made from this pattern.


If I have intrigued you enough to check out the web comic you can do do here https://www.gocomics.com/breaking-cat-news/2010/01/01
