In a Dutch magazine "Handwerken Zonder Grenzen" there is a contest to make a design for a yarn called Hoooked zpagetti http://www.hoooked.nl/.
This yarn is a tube of jersey made of rest materials from the fabric and fashion industries.

Since I didn't have the yarn at hand I made my own version to get a material with similar properties. I cut up 2 t-shirts in two long bands of jersey yarn. With this I knitted my design in dropped stitches on needles sz 10.




And here's the result: a "Ztad-Kat" (="Zity-Kitty") It's a cozy for the small poles you find in a lot of Dutch towns. I did it in red and white because many cities, like my own, have those as their town-colours. And the candy stripe effect makes it an original decoration for the upcoming holidays!

Aw that's cute! I love the button eyes. We have posts like that in our area but I don't think that would last with all of the destructive college students :/

I didn't leave him out yet, as he is not that weatherproof either. ( I might make a orange/black version out of stockings for halloween =^x^=)

He's going to welcome the family on christmas day. I thought it would be more original than a wreath.
No-one would destroy such a sweet kitty on christmas, now would they?
