I made this bed for my kitty awhile ago, but thought I'd post it incase anyone wanted to make one too. I just love seeing my cat enjoy it so much. I used this great pattern. If you go see the pattern, take a look at the gallery; oh my, such gorgeous cats and beds! I hope to make another one using the Noro Big Kureyon yarn as the pattern calls for. Mine didn't felt very much, hence the large size, b/c the yarn wasn't pure wool. I just used two old sweaters I had as I loved the yarn and couldn't bare to throw out...so I re-purposed them into this. The black yarn I believe was mohair and the cream was handspun wool. Oh and some novelty yarn was just added to the last rows of stitching.
For added comfort, I took black and cream roving and felted it into a thick matt for the bottom. It's solid cream on the other side, so gives two different looks. If anyone else decides to make one, I'd love to hear about it!
