This started out as a headband, but midway through I remembered that I hated crocheting fun fur. I connected it with the thoughts of making it into a cat toy, but it fit my wrist, so I kept it that way! I love how it turned out.

Very cute.
I did something similar as well

and laced it up with ribbon. Pattern is on my site if you want to see it.

Kinda makes me feel like wonder woman.

Missy, I too have a feeling it'll become a cat toy if I keep laying it around *grin*

Air Bear, I used Lion Brand Fun Fur. Do you have a Michael's around you? All the Michael's I've been to seem to have the Fun Fur.

The yarn I used I got from artfibers in San Francisco. They also sell a silver version. It's a really plush thick fur, you cannot even see the thread running it together. I would think that doubling up the fun fur would give a similar appearance.

I made a scarf out of Lion brand fun fur that is white, pink, and brown stripped.  I intended to wear it but it has become one of my cat's favorite toys that I can't bear to take from her.

My LYS hates to crochet...so they made these lei kinda things by knitting the fuzz stuff into an Icord around a string or ribbon...worked great!  I think the fuzz would get to me around my neck like that....argggg....

I just recently made a white furry muff for a friend with a Berrocco eyelash yarn, I think it's called Zap.  I doubled it up with Classic Elite mohair, and also used the mohair to make an I-cord so the muff will stay around her neck when she takes her hand out.  I have a pic, but haven't figured out how to post them yet.

That's the muff I was talking about.  It's just a tube knit on circulars with an I-cord attached.  Great project for beginning knitters that are bored of scarves! Smiley

kbgjess,
Your site is cool. Great stuff. I think your barbie undies are pretty hillarious too.
