Kitty Overalls
Created By: Jody Hordenchuk

I used left over bits of Baby Soft yarn to make a pair of "overalls" for my kitty. I, sadly, had to have him declawed because I could not get him to stop scratching things regardless of what I tried. I came up with a simple pattern idea and just played with it until I found one that worked. After many rips and pulls, I croched a pattern that worked. I simply chained 3 and joined them. Then slipped ten stitches into the centre ring and joined. I doubled the next row for a total of 20 stitches. I then chained one, single croched one around maintaining my 20 stitches for about 5 rounds. I increased four stitches a round for four rounds (total stitches on last round was 36). I joined the legs together by sewing together four chains. I then made the tops by tying onto the legs (each separately). I continued the chain one half-double crochet one pattern for a total of 16 stitches for two rows, then started decreasing two stitches per row. I left the tops long so that it would be easier to attach the overalls to a frustrated cat.

All in all, my little invention worked out pretty good. I would put bandages and baby socks on his feet then put the overalls over top. He started to appreciate the overalls, but I think he is glad now that he no longer needs to wear them.
