Cat and Mouse Throw and Pillow

I laughed out loud, in a good way, when I first saw this delightful kittycat design by Deb Richey. Folks, it doesn't get much cuter than this. While I'm not ordinarily a fan of cutesie crochet designs, I'd have to make an exception for this one.

This free pattern is available from the Caron Yarns website.

Crazy Cat Hat

This fun hat has great big cat eyes plus ears and a couple of smallish earflaps. The pattern was designed by Brenda K. B. Anderson; it's posted at the crochetme.com website. You'll probably have to close a pop-up before you can access the free pattern.
