View Full Version : kitty pi bed
07-24-2006, 06:35 PM
Since Moshi (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Pets/DSCN1926.jpg) has decided that he must sleep in boxes (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Pets/DSCN1577.jpg) I decided that it was past time for me to make a kitty pi bed (http://wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm) for him.
1st of all, I increased the size of the pattern because Mo is a huge (17 lbs) cat! I used double stranded WOTA and size 11 Options (love, love). I used 5 different colors and striped the bed using the fibonacci sequence (http://www.fuzzygalore.biz/articles/fibonacci_seq.shtml). The colors that I chose are the colors that are in our rug so that it will match our home better than the boxes that he claims ;)
Almost forgot...I didn't include the fun fur yarn (simply because I don't have any, nor have I ever had any, for some reason, I don't seem to like it...perhaps one day) and used an icord bind off.

Becka - Moshi is one gorgeous kitty!!! He's like snow :inlove: :inlove:
I want to make one of these, but I'm scared that Miss Monkers will not use it. Of course if I set it on top of something else, and pretend it's not for her, she might get in it. She does have a thing lately for basket shaped beds. :thinking:

How big did you increase the pattern? I have biggie kittes too, and have always wanted to make this for them! But since they are 14.5 lbs and 15 lbs respectively I didn't want to insult them with ill fitting beds! :rofling:

Awesome! I have that pattern saved in my favorites. I have three cats and I know one of them will love this bed. Good job!

Lonnie surprised me with Mo several years ago, he is the white-est (word?!), well, the most white cat I have ever seen! His skin is all pink, not a speck of another color anywhere. LOL, he's a monster cat, too...I believe that he remained kitten sized for about a week, LOL, then, he was this huge cat that we love :D
Xbeloved, I simply did another increase round in addition to the ones that are called for in the pattern ;)
Okay, this is how much Mo appreciates his bed :roflhard: :rofling: :roflhard:

aw. mine took awhile to lie in hers. I thought she never would. she only last month started sleeping in it, and I think I finished it in January or February.
good luck rebecca! :heart:

:cheering: :cheering: I'm so excited....He likes it! He likes it!!
LOL, he did go straight for the box that my yarn came in today....I mean, he made a bee line to it...out it went, so, I guess he decided the bed was better than nothing :roflhard: :rofling:

:roflhard: Great pictures, Rebecca! I especially love the one of Mo sitting next to the bed! I will eventually make this for my Jasmine!
