Woven Whimsical Cats

One of the joys of self publishing patterns is that I get to talk about them as soon as I finish them. (Not allowed to do that with commissioned projects! It’s up to the editors to decide when the word goes out on those).

My most recent self published pattern is for the Woven Whimsical Cats.

You can order the pdf pattern from my website:  Link

They have been so much fun to design.

I started the designing process for them last February.

I went through several variations of them  before I settled on the two versions that are in the pattern.

There’s the sitting Whimsical Cats, who are infinitely poseable (and can be convinced to wear shoes and play musical instruments, too!)

They have distinctly, ‘Who me?!’ expressions of feline innocence, which probably means that they are up to all manner of mischief!

Their ‘Laying Down’ cousins:

are lovely to rest your wrist on when playing with the computer mouse.

Of course, they might take a swipe at the mouse, but that’s to be expected, isn’t it?

They were woven on the lovely potholder loom from Dewberry Ridge looms:http://www.dewberryridge.com/products/potholder-loom

The yarn is art yarn, handspun by the delightful Nancy Nagle of Nangellini: www.nangellini.com

The spool knitter that is used in the project is the Lollipop from Harrisville designs: Link

When I was designing and weaving the Whimsical Woven cats, I was remembering all the wonderful cats who have graced my life with their marvelous ways.

So, here’s to our Feline Friends! with love and thanks for all the blessings!😀

    Just too, too cute! Another winner, Noreen! They are perfect presents for cat lovers, though I think my felines would think they are personal toys for them, not gifts for humans.

  2. Thanks so much, Caroline! LOL… not only do cats think that the Whimsy Cats are gifts for them, the dogs do, too! We had to rescue the little black cat from our small dog who was VERY reluctant to let go of it! LOL!😀

    Absolutely enchanting! Even as a non-cat person I can see the charm and mischief glowing out of these incredible creations. I’m glad we didn’t have to wait to see them.
