Crochet is my new favourite medium!
While I’m not the best at it, I’m slowly finding my pace and the projects keep getting more and more ambitious. Okay, a cat hat really isn’t that ambitious, but until this project, I had never created anything with purposeful chaining beyond stitch creation.
Best way to learn a new skill? Repetition.
Halfway through, I began to understand the pattern differences between crocheting for a flat circle and a circle for a curved project. While you’re learning, it’s not uncommon to have aha! moments, especially when it comes to a task where eventually you can get lost in the hand movements of your craft.
Have you ever seen a cat give up on life and accept the costume that you’ve put on them?
This was the first picture that I took and Cleo absolutely hated it, but eventually she saw it as a toy and its been added as part of the household.
The only thing about the pattern that I would change is the stem with the vine – it didn’t curl as much as I wanted it to, I might have to sew it in place. I think I will actually add a few thinner ones – rule of three, after all. Maybe make the stem brown and leave the vine green?
Either way, this was a great project and it makes the house a little more festive, no? 😛
Have you ever put a costume on your pet? Did you take a picture? I’d love to hear about it!
Coming soon – more crochet and probably some good news
