Kitten Mittens Pattern

K absolutely loves his new company. At his previous job, he got maybe 10 emails a day, all very serious and work-related. Nowadays, his inbox has 25 emails by 10 am, usually long threads about pregnant Batman (please don't look that up) and what time is pantsless o'clock.

Anyway, one woman always likes sending out silly cat links, and K about bust a gut when he saw that Kitten Mittons commercial from the TV show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Here's how our chat conversation went:

K: http://youtu.be/5fP4emqw7O4
K: MAKE SOME OF THESE
K: MAKE THEM NOW
K: WE HAVE SLIPPERY FLOORING
Me: lol
Me: oh my...
K: YOU MUST MAKE SOME
Me: are you serious?? O_O
K: Jolly, festive red ones
Me: uhhhh, ok
K: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY
Me: you're funny *hug*
K: Less hugging, more crocheting

So a few design attemps later, I had a finished product and sent K the photographic evidence. That cat-loving coworker of K's found out and requested a set too. Here's a short clip of Chairman Meow in her new outfit:


If you'd like to bless your kitty with such accessories, the free pattern is downloadable at Ravelry. Send me your photos and videos and I'll post them here!

I will have to make these just for the fun of it! My cats will hate them, but I'll do it anyways. If I manage to get a picture, I'll send you one. I'm on Ravelry as puffingrrl. :)
