could you post a tute perhaps? im not that great at crocheting and need help...lol....and i love the kee-tee
he is gorgeous.....
I basically googled crocheting videos... the "spikes" are a bobble stitch. If I could find it again (it disapeared about 2-3weeks after I made it LOL darn kitty, took it off and hid it on me.... ) I could have a better look at it, so I could give you more help. But I'm thinking it is mostly DC's, crochet in the round. Hopefully that's mildily helpful.
