This summer I have been busy knitting up a set of little toys. These have all been to help reduce my stash of left over yarn, that is too small for most projects. These little kitties were a great match.
I began with a free pattern I found on Ravelry (here). The body of the cat knitted up very quickly.
It should be as no surprise to my regular readers that I did make a few changes. The major change I made was to the tail. I only used 3 stitches to create the i-cord tail. This created a slightly smaller tail, but I am happier with it.
I also modified the face features just a little. Instead of having multiple whiskers, I used one piece of string and frayed the ends. Two glass beads were used for the eyes. I did find it was easier to add the facial features before sewing the top of the cat closed.
