My Kitty: The Collection

My Kitty: The Collection was a month-long project of designing and testing. This huge pattern will allow you to make no less than 8 kinds of cats with the option of longhair or shorthair on any of them. In addition, there are multiple options for tails and ears as well as color suggestion charts, a cat-term glossary, and much much more. This is a fully comprehensive pattern with photo-instructions for everything beyond your very basic crocheting. This pattern is written and arranged to where even a novice crocheter can tackle these kitty blankies with no problem.

If you are an intermediate+ crocheter who wishes for a little less cat, you can purchase one of the 5 excerpts from this pattern found HERE. Purchasing the entire collection, however, is equivalent to about a 40% savings.
