I got a new comfy chair for my yarn studio today! I had been sitting on a stool that was hurting my back after hours of crocheting and blogging. So I opted for something a little bigger with a a nice cushion and depth to it so I could really sink in and relax while I stitch. I was nervous that the legs were going to scratch the floor so I quickly crocheted these adorable cat paw chair socks! They slip right over the ends of the chair legs and look like little paws. Such a perfect fit for my yarn room!

Make 4 Cat Paw Chair Socks for each leg of your chair!
HERE is the chair I bought! It is made to be a dining chair but I love the modern look, white leather, and wide cushioned seat. Its the perfect height for me to sit at my ikea desk. Plus, the design works well as a photography prop for staging finished crochet pieces like blankets or pillows! Remember, I am upgrading from a small stool LOL!
