After all, dogs get sweater patterns galore! It's time that cats got their moment in the limelight.

Lucky Cat Sweater
Legend has it that this cat sweater is incredibly lucky.

It's not fair to your cat to not knit him this sweater.

Knit Cat Socks
If you truly loved your cat, you would knit her some socks. Wait? What's that? You love your cat more than life itself? You might also want to knit yourself a matching pair, you know, just to show the world how much you love her. If she kicks off her socks in a fit, don't worry. That means she loves you, too.
Candy DIY Catnip Toy
Just because your cat stares at you every time you sneak a piece of chocolate out of the kids' Halloween candy stash doesn't mean you should give him any. Distract him with his very own catnip toy shaped just like a piece of candy! Sure, it doesn't have any tails to entice him, but he'll probably still swat it around a couple of times, anyway, giving you just enough time to grab some more candy.
Cat Ears Headband DIY Pattern
Perhaps the weather is too warm for a hat, or you don't want to mess up your hair too much. You don't have to be left out of the cat knitting fun! Cat headbands are just as easy to make as cat hats, and still give you that purrfectly feline look you're craving. For best results, pair with cat wing eyeliner and long nails.
