Pussycat Meow

The Name

Pussycat Meow by Deee-Lite

Another tush that needs some cush!

The Tush Cush

Dimensions: 15 inches square

This time I created in double crochet for faster turnaround. It still took just as long as the single crochet, only because I had to recall to memory my Solid Granny Square pattern. Maybe I better write it down before dementia sets in.

Yarn

Caron Simply Soft
Color: Black; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: 4, Worsted

Red Heart Super Saver
Color: Yellow*; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: 4, Worsted

Those are the only two I could come close to guessing. All other yarns – red, orange, green-purple multicolor, red-blue multicolor, tan, pink, brown – were deemed by me, as worsted and man-made fibers, except the gold lace crocheted together with the black Caron.

Stray Cat Strut

The Name

Stray Cat Strut by Stray Cats

Another animal name for an animal product and because “I got cat class and I got cat style!”

The Cush Tush

Dimensions: 14-inch diameter

This time I was determined to work in double crochet for faster turnaround. Well I finished this one is less than a day, so that’s cool! I originally started with a square but have forgotten the formula for a square design, with no holes, in-the-round. Now that I’ve made a round one, I am thinking of different shapes; maybe a star one!┬áColor selections were random reaches into my bag o’ scraps of worsted yarn.

The Yarn

Lion Brand Wool Ease

Feza Cayenne

I apologize for my crappy photography; I can no longer remain still long enough for good focus.

Cat’s In The Cradle

The Name

Cat’s In The Cradle by Harry Chapin

As I am not a fan of cats, but this is a pet pad, I am forced to start using cat name. Then again, I don’t know who’s tush, this pad will cush.

The Pet Pad

Dimensions: 18.5 x 16.75 inches

This is based on a foundation chain of 5. I need to change my corner as I am noticing puckering. I think I will definitely change from single crochet to double crochet to speed up the process of making these.

The Yarn

Still working on scraps obtained from CSNanaCat.

Dog Days Are Over

The Name

Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine

This is my last dog song, so I may stop making pet pads until 2019.

The Pet Pads

The sizes vary, but all approximate at about twelve inches, squared. They are constructed in single crochet and comprised of yarn scraps of different weights.

The Yarns

Scrap yarns randomly, – more or less, trying to match weights – pulled from one of my scrap yarn containers. I started this with the left over yarns from my previous pet pad work with the afghan squares I was charged with at the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers guild.
