Project

Eloise the striped cat

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the expressive face, and I am most proud of the lovely color sequence. I spent an entire day surrounded by balls of cotton yarn just making swatches until I finally got the right combination. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun! This is a fun easy project to use up some stash yarn.

You Can Make This

Ida Herter made Eloise the striped cat with:

  • Lily sugar 'n' cream cotton yarn
  • 9mm safety eyes
  • size f crochet hook
