  • Step 1

    Make the Curly-Tailed Cat
    1. Crochet each part. Use a C/2 (2.75 mm) crochet hook, except for the scarf for the Black Cat. Use a B/1 (2.25 mm) crochet hook for the scarf for the Black Cat.
    2. Stuff each part, except the ears and the tail. Make sure to use the wrong side of the single crochet as the outside fabric.
    3. Attach the eyes, nose, and mouth to the head. Embroider the mouth, as shown in the diagram on page 56.
    4. Sew all parts together, as shown on page 49. Curl end of tail and sew the tail to the back.
    5. Press the feet into a flat shape and embroider the toes, as shown in the diagram on page 56.
    6. Tie the scarf around the cat’s neck as a finishing touch.
