People Have Been Crocheting Little Couches For Their Cats
The ongoing pandemic has undeniably left many of us with no choice but to spend more time indoors. Nonetheless, this gives us a chance to finally do the things that we’ve been putting off for a while now. So, if you’ve been meaning to take on a new craft project, then now’s a great opportunity. And if you’re into crocheting and you also happen to have a feline friend then these cute cat couches might just give you the perfect inspiration.
Indeed, crocheting entails some serious stitching skills coupled with lots of creativity. However, once you’ve learned the ropes, the possibilities are endless. From dolls, costumes, slippers and even tampons, there’s just so much you could create out of several strings of yarn.
And this time, the latest crochet trend has got people creating miniature couches just for their feline friends
“I did not crochet a full-sized couch, mind you, but a kitty version fit for Jigglypuff Sprinklepop!”
“It took 4 months but it finally happened! My cat actually sat in the sofa I crocheted for her”
While photos of these adorable cat-sized sofas have gone viral just recently, the project idea is actually not entirely new. In fact, we’ve spotted an entry in a crochet forum that dates back all the way to 2009. There’s also a pattern for this project on Ravelry that was published back in 1998.
“Sushi enjoying her new Kitty Couch!”
“Sofa I made for my mom’s cat with the obligatory back-of-sofa granny-ghan”
“I figured if I’m sitting at home on the couch all the time, the cats should get to do that too.”
