From the Designer: "Meet UltraViolet! The purrfectly purple crochet kitty made from Yarnspirations Patons Alpaca Blend yarn! The color of the yarn is UltraViolet which I thought would be the most appropriate name for this cute kitten! UltraViolet is also the 2018 Pantone's color of the year and one of my favorite shades. You only need about half a skein to crochet this kitten. Simple SC construction and a few easy embellishments like safety eyes and white whiskers bring this sweet soft toy to life. I can't wait to show you how to crochet this purr-fect plush pet!"

This is so cute and just the right project for me. My grand daughter loves cats and the color purple. Her birthday is next month. I think this would make her very happy. I read the directions and they made me very happy. Thank you for sharing this project with us.
