Amigurumi Black Cat Door Stopper Reviewed by Kathy on 2014-03-09 *****
Even though this pattern has few details, it works up into a different personality every time! I've made a lot of these in different yarns and colors, even in striped yarn which is a favorite of my grandkids. A very easy project.
