The little cat is easy to make and if you like to experiment with different yarns and textures then you'll end up making many of them. And yes, it will look great with the yarn that's been lonely sitting in your stash for years as you'll need less than one skein of main color to complete the cat.
The cats pictured on the left are made of cotton yarn, the grey one is made of boucle yarn.
Format: PDF document of 8 pages with detailed instructions and 22 photos illustrating the process.
Finished size: It works well with any type of yarn, the size of finished cat depends on the yarn and crochet hook you use. When done with worsted weight yarn and an E hook, the cat sits 8 1/2″ (20.5 cm) tall. If done with sport category yarn and a 2.5 mm hook, the little cat sits 5.5″ (14 cm) tall.
