I know I said I was only going to post once a month, in order to preserve by pattern backlog a little, but then I found out that June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month within two days of having finished this cutie, and I figured, why shouldn't our favorite ectobiological mutant feline speak out on behalf of shelter cats?



Adorable, isn't he? And now you can make your own, too!


What you need to know for this pattern: US stitch names; crocheting in the round (in a spiral); single crochet (sc); double crochet (dc); increasing ([stitch] 2 in 1); decreasing ([stitch] 2 tog); slip stitch (sl st).
