There is an ad that keeps showing up on Facebook of a cat and pumpkin sweater. I absolutely love the cats in the design, so I decided to try to create them in crochet.
This is the first one I made. The yarn is more fuzzy than eyelash, so it didn’t pair well with a strand of acrylic yarn. This made it much smaller than the second cat I made, which used eyelash yarn paired with a strand of regular worsted weight.
My second attempt looked a bit more like the sweater as it’s poofier, and I love how it turned out. I just wish I’d made the eyes smaller. I’ll do that on the next one
Here’s a screenshot of the inspiration sweater
These are adorable! I, too, love that sweater print. You did an awesome job bringing it to life. I think they both look great and snuggly!
I think they are both adorable little puff balls! And it’s interesting to see where the inspiration came from.
I love them - especially the vibrant green eyes!
Oh my gosh!!! They are super adorable!! I love how fuzzy they are!!! Great job bringing the cats on the sweater to life!!!
I love them both! They turned out so cute and just like the sweater!
Oh! I used to remember the designer of that pattern. The year it came out I didn’t snag the fabric fast enough so I purchased a zip pouch made from it on Etsy. Your cat is so adorable! I think either one is great. You could always use one of those steel brushes to bring out the yarn fibers to look like fur.
These lil chockers are so dang cute!!! You’ve done a great job interpreting those sweater cats. I keep seeing great Halloween sweaters, too, but simply cannot wear orange and of course, all the ones I like have orange. Woe is me!
Cuuuute!! I like them both!
