Crochet Cat "Patches" for DKB

Originally uploaded by Elaine with Grey Cats.

I challenged myself to get this done for my youngest nephew while travelling back east for a Yuletide visit. During take offs and landings, in the car as we drove around, and during some of the chats while visiting, i worked on this toy. He’s understuffed in the bottom, simply carelessness on my part. While inspired by the pattern at Crochet Me, the head and ears are different. The head has a little more shaping in reduction, i left off the legs (running out of time, there), and the ears are just one layer, triangles worked in a base ring. The ears *are* a bit big for the head! Yoda cat?

The two color work on the side turned out well, but i somehow didn’t manage such clear demarcation on the black head top.

Still, fun to get a project done while traveling. And it was a good pattern to work on while visiting with other folks.
