Beth's Kitty

My daughter has finally caught the knitting bug. She came up with an idea for a cat with long I-cord limbs. Here’s our combined inspiration. Knitting Kitty was knit with inexpensive 100% wool from W*lM*rt. Kitty is working on socks with “Sunshine Yarns” cherry blossom colorway

one size

FINISHED MEASUREMENTSHead Diameter: 2 inchesHeight: 5 inches(not including limbs)

miscellaneous worsted weight – color of your choice

20 g main color
A few feet of black for the embroidery:
1 set(s) US #4/3.5mm double-point needles

notions required: darning needle, poly stuffing, 12 inch piece of chenille stem.

22 sts/28 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

This pattern is suitable for someone who can knit on double pointed needles. Other skills required are increasing and decreasing, embroidery, making I-cord, and seaming. My 10 year old daughter was able to knit the I-cord and body with minimal help. She needed help with the seaming and with learning how to increase. She already knew how to k2tog.
