Optional: With scrap yarn of similar weight, work two rows of sc around top of bed to add some color. To make corners "stick out", work 4 dc at each of three corners.

You can make this kitty bed with any yarn and appropriate hook size. 
Choose a crochet hook a bit smaller than what the yarn calls for.
