Each month in 2022 I published a new cat pattern! You can grab the eBook, 2022: A Year of Cats or just pick your favorite squares. My daughter asked me why I drew this… I told her that for some reason, a lot of grown ups think a cat’s butt is funny. She didn’t agree.

I also created a BONUS square in November, with this cat’s face: November Cat Face!

You will receive one file containing:

  • the interlocking written line-by-line pattern
  • a one-page chart (81 x 81)

And another file with:

  • the mosaic written line-by-line pattern (including instructions for an envelope border)
  • an X-marked chart (77 x 77)

The interlocking mesh dots and border lines have been removed for the overlay mosaic version of the pattern.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row. The back is striped but often gives a faint impression of the pattern on the front (sort of like illusion knitting). See an example here.
