crochet cats

Hello again! Here’s the first post with actual content for winter break! So, even though last time I said I was going to try to work on my WIPs, I decided to work on something different entirely.

Last year or so, I made my first crochet project, a black cat, supposed to look like the one from Studio Ghibli’s Kiki’s Delivery Service. (I love that movie!!) I ended up changing the eyes/nose a bit, so my project looks like just a generic black cat. 😛

Today, my family had an early Christmas party with my aunt and uncle, since we are going to be in Vegas/Los Angeles over Christmas. Since we were exchanging gifts, I decided to make another one of the crochet cats to give to my aunt and uncle.

Random thoughts under the cut!

I was actually wondering, why is the one I made first so much larger, if I followed the same pattern, using the same yarn. I then realized that I must have used a different hook size….  Actually over break, I lost my knitting accesories/crochet hooks.  I went out Wednesday to get the size H/5.00mm, because that’s the one recommended on the yarn ball band.  But on the pattern, it recommends size G/4.00mm, so I ended up using that hook to make the cat. So pointless going out to buy  the new one. 😛   I must have used the 5.00mm last time though.

Haha, I think the original looks kind of dopey. It’s still cute, but I like the smaller one much better.

I still have maybe a fist-sized ball of black yarn left, so am considering making another one. OR!! Maybe try to adapt the pattern/find a new one and make a black dog instead?

      aw, haha thanks!! I do think looking at cute things puts you in a more cheerful mood. 🙂

  2. […] I’ll also bring the scrap black yarn to make another crochet cat/dog? Really not sure if there is enough yarn though… I think I should probably save it to use in […]

    Such a crafty person you are. The black cats are cute.

  4. […] the Ravelry pattern database, and found this pattern for a crochet scarf. After having made the crochet cats, I was in the mood for crochet. I think crochet projects are faster than knitting ones […]
