Remember when I made that crocheted cat bed, and my cats absolutely fell in love? I revisited the project. But, with the most ridiculous yarn I could find!
Looking for a quirky, modern cat bed for your four-legged favorites? Crochet a super bulky cat bed with cozy jersey knit fabric! Your kitties will love it, and it will fit right in with the rest of your DIY decor.
Pixel cat loves that he can curl up however he wants because the bed stretches and changes shape with him. Whether he’s upside down, balled up, or long cat-ing, the slight stretch in the fabric definitely allows for maximum coziness. I think he’s only left his new bed for about five minutes total since I gave it to him last week! (Unrelated: Just look at that sweet little face!)
* Cotton jersey knit fabric, 4 yards white patterned and 2 yards solid red (or your favorite contrasting colors) ** yardage is based on 60" wide fabric
* Scrap piece of yarn, 2-3" long (to use as a stitch marker)
* A small cushion or pillow for the bottom of the cat bed (optional, but it’s a nice touch)

Cut the jersey fabric into long strips that are about 3" wide.
Tie the fabric strips together to make a ball of fabric yarn.
