The Purrfect Snowflake! For Day 16

 For all who love animals this is a real treat, if you are real quiet, you can here them meow.
You even get to snip picots, for whiskers, which is oddly satisfying.
    

Yes I have been working on your Christmas present too! I was inspired by Karey Solomon who's Idea of cats in a circle for snowflake looked fun, but did not look like cats to me.

 Cute tail and wreath and large size 3 thread makes a great festive brooch. The chains in the cat do well no twisting problems!

Here are three different size threads the  orange one is 3.5 wide by 6 cm (omitting tail) the Siamese cat is size 20 thread he is 1.5 by 3 cm (omitting tail) I used black and white thread but ears are colored with black ink marker, the picots for ears, (after connected back on ring) are made by pulling one thread and can be pointed with water and fingers or by blocking.

You can down load the down below and let me know if pattern problems I am not the great with this kinda thing!

  18. These are great, but you need to credit yourself on your pattern! Put the date you created the pattern and your name, so when people print it out they know who the designer is!
