I had a custom order for an ombre boucle kitty. I used the same yarn I made my sweater out of, and honestly it was easier to crochet sc in the round than rows and rows of hdc.
I did change the ears slightly, I made them flat instead of in a round. Started at the bottom with a row of 6, decreased the stitches on each end until there was only one, and then sewed them on all curved.
I keep getting away from this post. The internet is a rabbit hole. Also, children.
This is my American Shorthair Kitten pattern, I’m going to make another one in worsted weight and I’ll add that one to the pictures on Ravelry.
