Several years ago, a friend of mine asked me if I could design and make a crocheted cat for him. I said that I would try, and Bob E Cat was born. The original was given to my friend Robert (Bob E is named for him), who has sinced passed on, God rest his soul. Now, I offer the Bob E Cat pattern free of charge in memory of Robert.

Bob E Cat is about 3.5 inches tall, made from size 30 crochet thread and a size 10 hook. You can make him bigger or smaller by changing the thread/yarn and hook size (be sure to adjust the size of the eyes accordingly). He has a cotter pin and disk-jointed head, and thread-jointed arms and legs.

Most of the supplies needed to make Bob E Cat can be purchased from my friend Deb at www.tedsfromthreads.com.
