I like a kind of cute that I don’t usually see.
I don’t know how I made my past cat attempts and so had to begin again and this time write the pattern. In so doing, she evolved into something else, remembered, friendlier and more angular.

Aviva’s body and legs are crocheted in one piece.
Her head alone will work as a cat pin.
Her tail is about 5”, her body is about 4” tall and 3.5” deep
(from front paw to back paw) using worsted weight yarn.

The pattern is named for Aviva, a beautiful barn-born cat, who, unbeknownst to me, was pregnant when I adopted her in exchange for the adoption of my Leto, too wild for urban life, who made a great barn cat hunter. I kept one of her kittens, Solar, who like his mother, became a soulmate.
