I’m knitting and crocheting like a mad woman now. I’m trying to get gifts made for Christmas. I’m not quite sure how successful I’ll be, but I’m giving it my best shot. Last night I finished this crochet amigurumi kitten. I was inspired by this pattern at Armina’s Ami-nals.
I followed Armina’s directions for creating the head, the body, and the ears; however, I created different legs because I wanted the kitten to look like a cat sitting on its hindquarters. I also created a tail. The tail makes this toy look more cat-like, and it acts as a balance. The kitten can stand on its own. Also, rather than crocheting a dress, I knitted a scarf, long enough to wrap twice and tie, and I crocheted a little hat with a tassle.
My plan is to give this toy to my niece, Amanda, at Christmas. She likes cats as much as I do. If time allows, I’ll try to knit her a matching scarf/hat.
