Bucket's an inquisitive kitty who appreciates a challenge and Loaf is a relaxed feline who grooves to smooth jazz. Inspired by an incredibly popular Japanese collecting game, they're just two of the 25 dumpling-shaped crochet cats in this whimsical collection. Each cuddly critter has "personality points" and crocheters of all skill levels can collect them all with the help of full-color photos, simple drawings, and fun-to-follow instructions.
