This is a cat that truly loves boxes. Watch other videos starring Maru the cat at mugumogo.
This is a really easy pattern (name of pattern: Satin – Poncho (knit)) and you’ll soon have it memorized. I recommend this pattern to knitters who want to learn how to:
- Knit basic lace
- Seam vertical to horizontal edges (also see Knitty for more instructions)
- Block acrylic yarn (you’ll want to block the two pieces before you seam them together)
- Knit i-cord (the pattern suggests using a ribbon at the neckline, but I wanted i-cord – I used size 3 double-pointed needles)
I knitted this poncho with yarn from my stash – Caron Simply Soft Autumn Red. I look forward to wearing this in the fall!
Here are some images which show more detail:
I found this fun tool at Sheep to Shawl.
This is a nature story with a happy ending – all thanks to one very observant and caring man.

I packaged the washcloths together by first creating a covered cardboard bottom (4×4″). I used scrapbook paper to cover both sides. I adhered the paper to the cardboard with Spray Mount.
I then folded the washcloths, placed them on the covered cardboard bottom, and then tied a ribbon around the cloths (crossing it in back). The cardboard bottom makes it easier to tie the cloths together with the ribbon: it prevents them from getting scrunched up.
I made four unique gift tags and used one to complete the package. They are available to you to print and use (there are two tags for knitted cloths, and two for crocheted cloths). All you’ll need is some white cover stock paper to use in your printer, a pair of scissors, and a hole punch. Enjoy!
I completed a couple of circular washcloths which I’ll give away at some point. One washcloth is crocheted. The pattern for it is a variation of the Daisy Wheel found on this page. The knitted round washcloth pattern is here. I used Sugar ‘n Cream yarn for these washcloths as well.
Here’s my best man! I love this silly cat to pieces. You too can participate in the Friday Ark (multiple pet categories).
