I made this kitty today with fuzzy yarn. 




I also made this bird, it's part feather yarn part chunky yarn.  I used felt for the feet and attached them to the legs with a button.  Still don't have a name for either of them!!!




Here's the free pattern for the kitty:
Materials:

size F and size H hook

ww yarn in pink (i used caron simply soft)

2 balls fuzzy yarn

yarn needle, embroidery floss

Head/Body ( use H hook, hold 2 strands fuzzy yarn throughout)

6 sc in ring

rd1: 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)

rd2: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (18 sc)

rd3: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (24 sc)

rd4-7: sc in each sc around (24 sc)

rd8: sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc around (18 sc)

rd9: sc in each sc around (18 sc)

rd10: sc2tog, sc in next sc around (12 sc)

rd11: sc in each sc around (12 sc)

rd12: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (18 sc)

rd13-17: sc in each sc around (18 sc)

rd18: sc2tog, sc in next sc around (12 sc)

rd19: sc2tog around (6 sc)

stuff, sew closed

Ears (make 2, use F hook and pink yarn)

5 sc in ring

rd1: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last sc (7 sc)

rd2 & 3: sc in each sc around (7 sc)

rd4: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last sc (9 sc)

rd5: sc in each sc around (9 sc)

Fasten off.

Nose:

5 sc in ring

rd1: 2 sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, sc in last 2 sc (7 sc)

rd2: sc in each sc around (7 sc)

fasten off.

Tail:

6 sc in ring, sc in each sc around until tail reaches about 6 inches. fasten off.

Finishing:

Sew on ears and nose before the decrease rounds in the head. I did right after the last 24sc round.  Sew on tail to back of cat, wrap around and sew the tip of the tail to the front of the cat.  I used green embroidery floss and sewed the tip of the nose, just for some color. You dont have to if you want.  I stuffed the cat at the end, right before the 6sc round, but you can whenever you like.

Enjoy!!

LOL. Maybe try and make a second bird so you can take pics during the tut? I've seen quite a few good tuts like that. (The cat is cute too, but I love odd things, and that purple duck is oddly delicious!)

I don;t know what it is about the bird but I love him! Could you post more pics of him from the front when you post the tut or even sooner?
He's just to cute!
