Lace Jewelry Frames -free crochet pattern-

Abstract Cats -free crochet pattern-

Wow, I love this!  I've always loved animals, especially cats, so I was pretty excited to find this super cute pattern.  This tutorial uses the pattern in making a baby afghan, but you could use this for any type of blanket or garment once you learn how to do it.  I want to make a shawl or cardigan with this!
