crochet: Starknuts June Challenge


Meet Crookshanks.

Yesterday, the Harry Potter knit & crochet community starknuts posted a new challenge for June.  I loved the idea so much, I, ehem, am done.

What?! I had a spare hour and just the right yarn so…

Crook is made with Nimoe’s Miuku The Cat pattern and Yarn Bee Cameo yarn and has a DMC scarf.

He’s a clever kitteh, but is also a very brave Gryffindor.

I added a join, ch 1 at the end of each round, which I found easiest to work with because of the fuzz factor.

Add it to your ravelry queue



His scarf has stripes (and gave me a cramp in my right hand…)



Bottlebrush tail and slightly cocky ears.  Love him!

Meeting some of the family…

A HUGE thanks to my lovely daughter, for her creative input.

If you make a Sew Awesome Craft or any pattern, craft or recipe from sewhooked,  I’d love to see a photo.  Email me or add it to the sewhooked flickr group.
