Cute cat

Tatting on the mystery doily proceeds slowly but surely, but I got distracted by this cat.  The pattern is from Sue Pendleton.  She recently retired and generously made her patterns available for free download.  This is the Tabitha Toy Cat although in my version, I used sport weight yarn (with a 3.0mm crochet hook) for the can and pearl 8 cotton (with a 1.6mm hook) hook for the dress.  The result is not quite proportional and the dress is a bit too small.

This cat went to live with a friend of mine.  The little lady has already requested one for herself, in white, pink and purple.
