Bow, the kitten

06-13-2016

 

I made my first crochet kitten to a very good friend of mine, Livi, who loves cats. Her cat's name is Bow, that's why I named my amigurumi kitten that way, and put a bow on its neck. I didn't want to use any pattern, so I designed my own and simple one. I used Catania Denim yarn, so it looks like a tabby cat without using different colors of yarns. I listed the other yarns, too, but feel free to use your favorite ones.
