For those who love cats, Crochet Cat Stitch is a fun stitch pattern to learn. This Stitch consists primarily of double crochet and chain stitches. Try making an abstract cat scarf, blanket, or washcloth as a gift for a cat-loving friend or for yourself!
It is fun to stitch out by playing with the color, contrast colors are favorable to make the cat pop out. Go get the yarn scrap and start hooking for small coasters to bags, blankets and even fashions.
