When I was a girl, my mother had a small stuffed animal that was used to hold ice whenever we got a scrape. Modeled after that pattern, this cat is worked in Tunisian Crochet Knit Stitch, and is a perfect project for beginners!
This cat calls for worsted weight yarn and a Size I hook, but the yarn and the hook can be adjusted to make a larger or smaller cat.
Notions: Tapestry needle to weave in ends
Closeable stitch marker
Safety eyes, or felt to make eyes
Embroidery floss for nose and whiskers
