A good-sized cat, too.

My sister related a story she saw on Ravelry (a BIG knitting forum):

The poster was making a last-minute gift, a Dr. Who scarf done on circular knitting needles, which produces a wide tube. She set her work down for a few minutes, then came back and bound it off, sewed the ends shut, and put on long fringes. It wasn't until she picked it up to wrap it that she noticed the large warm cat-shaped lump INSIDE the scarf...

OK, that wouldn't be hard to make. At first I thought it was all Y-seams, but looking at it enlarged shows that it's rectangles and half-square triangles. Hand-dyes, I think, dyed in sequences to get the 5 different shades of each block.
