Pom Pom Cat


Hello! Superstitions want to make us believe to be wary or even scared of black cats, but I think black cats are beautiufl and my Ziggy is the sweetest cat that I've ever met. He has become a huge part of our family and he has inspired me to crochet several things, like a cat hat and lacy cat ears and I have a feeling that he will continue to inspire me. Now, I have created a cute cat made out of pom poms! Scroll down for the free pattern!


The cat body is made from a large pom pom and a small pom pom. 


The cat eyes, nose, ears, bow tie and tail are all crocheted.
