I may have knitted one for my cat...

All Babe really wants out of life is to become internet famous. I know it won't happen, she's just not lol-cat funny enough yah know? But let's not tell her that... she's just so cute when she tries. 

She's so kindly let me take photos of her in my newest knitted Triangle-shaped neck-piece!

I used a slightly-larger than a golf-ball-sized ball of left-over Malabrigo rasta to knit this. I used 15mm needles and cast on something like 9 stitches (about 3 1/4 inches worth of stitches) and I just knit in seed stitch until it fit Babe's neck. This could me modified to fit any number of fluffy animals. I sewed on some buttons and there you have it! Something my cat tolerates! 

I put the pattern up on Ravelry! It can be found here

  1. How adorable. I saw it on Ravelry and just had to see the blog of someone who would make this AND have a cat who would model.

    1. (oops, I posted this a while ago but I just posted it as a comment not a reply!)

      Haha, Babe resisted for a little while - she did that cat thing where she walked around crouched really close to the ground and looked at me pitifully like "why would you do this to me?!". Then the kitty treats got involved and she warmed up to the concept, as per usual. Thanks for commenting!

  3. If you put a bell on it, the people might substitute it for a cat collar. It's so sweet.

    1. It would be very sweet, but most cat collars have a break-away feature so that if they get caught on a branch or fall and get hooked they won't choke. This one might not be great for cats who go outside or are left unsupervised :)
