This knitted cat pillow is a project I recently finished. The pattern is from Knit Picks and is available on their site here: Mini Kitty Pouf Pillow, The pillow – pouf pattern can be purchased alone as a download or in a kit with the yarn needed to make the actual pillow.
I had a lot of fun knitting this little cat pillow. It is knit using large needles – size US 15 so it knits up very fast. I think it only took me a few days to complete it and this was just knitting an hour or so here and there each day.
The yarn recommended for this knitted cat pillow is from Knit Picks called Big Cozy. Click here: The Big Cozy Yarn to view the yarn.
I just used some yarn I had in my stash since I am trying to use things up lately and not buy more. I used some chunky baby yarn for the cream part and for the gray I used some Alpaca Grande yarn. I think any super bulky or chunky yarn that recommends a size US 15 or even a 13 needle would work for this pattern, in my opinion.
You will also need some fiber fill to stuff the pillow and a small amount of black chunky yarn to embroider the face of the cat. The pillow is knit in the round with circular needles so there is only a minimal amount of sewing, or seaming, to do to create this cat pillow.
Our cat is not too impressed with the new cat pillow I created. My kids think it scares him but I took this photo of him with my phone to prove to them that he will sit by it. The pillow is not really for him it is just a decorative accent. It could also be knitted as a gift for a small child.
For now my knitted cat pillow hangs out in front of our fireplace near my yoga meditation cushion. The meditation cushion is a crochet pattern I designed myself and is available in my etsy shop or on ravelry.
I plan to make another one of these fun knitted cat pillows after I finished a couple of other projects I am currently working on. What are you currently knitting or crocheting?
