Kitty Crochet

I managed to crochet a kitty-tribute potholder before the 4th of July to gift to my friends, Carol and Thane who recently lost their cat, Milo. I do love this pattern. It's actually a square for an afghan called "Cats Squared." I crocheted a striped piece for the back and joined the two pieces together to make a hot-pad or potholder.

Carol and Thane recently adopted a new kitty with a heart-shaped fur mark. Max, aka Maximilien Luce Prescott-Tierney. Max has absconded with my potholder and uses it as a sort of prayer rug.

Very cute! BTW, have you seen these? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/starburst-vintage-inspired-crochet-cushion-pillow-cover. I thought they were lovely. In one of the pic's, they look like those crochet covered stones.

Thanks for your comments, Ladies! This is a fairly easy pattern. You should give it a try!

My baby! He loves his potholder, and only wishes he had opposable thumbs so he could use it for his intended purpose!
