This pattern came up amazingly! Now just to say, it is not for someone wanting a 'quick' project, i litterally spent about 12-15hrs a day for 4+ days crocheting and constructing the final project, but I must say, its so adorable and best of all, my cats love it! Also, i'm not a novice crocheter and have done some complex patterns in the past. The patterns aren't complex, just time consuming and honestly, it was the last rows of the pillow fronts that were the most complex. One of our kitties didn't even let me finish crocheting the pillows or tacking them down before he wanted to take a nap on it and to rest his arm and paw on one of its arms! So cute!!

Assembly is a little off, and the construction itself sometimes seems strange (for example, it's crochet, so while it's possible to crochet 3-dimensional items, instead this is all just flat pieces that are then sewn together). This makes each couch a bit of a chore to create but once it's done they're pretty cool and cute.

I'm with several others the assembly instructions are not great. Still trying to figure it out and becoming very frustrated. If anyone that has been successful can put up any kind of assembly how to video would be greatly appreciated.

I thought this was going to be a difficult project, but it ended up being so much FUN to create! I had to make minor adjustments for gauge, but nothing extraordinary; mostly I just added a few rows here and there to fit to size. A great summer project, and I LOVE the end result!

I made the round pink bed. It's super cute and just for that I would have given it 5 stars, but the instructions were difficult to follow especially in the decreases on the back. Also, although my gauge was spot-on for the pattern, the base of the bed, when made as directed was 2 inches too big. I had already bought the foam insert at the stated size, so I had to unravel 2 rows. The amount of yarn stated was also way off. I weighed the remaining using a kitchen scale and used 5 oz LESS than stated. As a result I overbought, which is annoying. The foam that I was able to source today (keeping in mind the patterns are more than 20 years old) is expensive and extremely difficult to cut. I live in a very large city and I searched all craft stores available -- that is all chain craft stores that exist pretty much (I may have missed a few regional ones), and looked online. Everything I found was high-density, memory foam, or upholstery grade. Hard to cut and in super large quantities that I didn't need. After ruining a steak knife and having to have my scissors sharpened, I looked online and was advised to cut it with an electric knife. I didn't feel like ruining my electric knife. I made some switches and bought a foam insert for the size of the bottom and used poly-fill for the back. The latter is not ideal, it makes it a little too squishy and doesn't conform to the shape as much as I'd have liked, but it worked for a cat bed. So, even given all that, if you like quirky for your pet, definitely go for these patterns. Everyone who sees it smiles and the cat seems happy. Just be aware that you may have some challenges.
