Black Cat Potholder

black cat potholder

Last year’s Black Cat Keychain pattern was a big hit, so this year I have enlarged it a bit to be a potholder. Using only 12 yards yellow and 30 yards black cotton worsted, you probably have enough in your stash to make a few of these kitty cats.

Materials:

Cotton worsted yarn:

12 yards yellow

30 yards black

Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook

 Finished cat measures approximately 7” wide

 Directions:

Body:

Rnd 1: With yellow yarn, ch 2 (or magic circle), 7 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Do not join.

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st (14 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 3: *Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (21 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 4: *Sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (28 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 5: *Sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (35 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 6: *Sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (42 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 7: *Sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (49 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 8: *Sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st,* twice in yellow, then repeat * to * 5 times in black. Fasten off yellow.

Rnd 9: Ch 1, turn, *sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st,* 4 times, sc in last 9 sts (49 sc).

Rnd 10: Ch 1, turn, *sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st,* 4 times, sc in last 9 sts (53 sc).

Rnd 11: Ch 1, turn, sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 sts, ch 15 for tail (hanging lp), sl st in ch closes to sc, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next 10 sts, 2 sc in next st,* twice, sc in last 9 sts. Fasten off black.

Head:

Rnd 1: With black yarn, ch 2 (or magic circle), 7 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Do not join.

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st (14 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 3: *Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (21 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 4: *Sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st,* repeat around (28 sc). Do not join.

Rnd 5: *Sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st,* repeat twice, sc in next st, ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch, sc in 3rd ch (ear made), sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch, sc in 3rd ch (ear made), repeat * to * twice. Join with sl st. Fasten off black leaving 9” length for sewing.

Sew bottom of Rnd 5 of head to Rnd 11 of body on the opposite side of the tail.

Weave in all ends.

Pumpkin Spice Dog Toy

Everywhere you look, you can see pumpkin spice! We hoomans love it, but what about the fur babies? Wouldn’t they like to have some pumpkin spice too? Crochet a mug of pumpkin space latte for your dog as a special treat.

Please be aware that all dogs are different; some will eat a toy within a day. Bruno will chew on a toy for about 3-4 months before it’s ready for the trash. Regardless of how long it takes them to finish the toy, cotton yarn and cotton stuffing are best because they can be digested by the dog.

For a larger dog, use a double strand of cotton yarn and a size J hook to make a larger toy. For a cat toy, eliminate the squeaker and add catnip and some bells.

Skill level: Easy

Finished measurement approximately 6” tall
