CAVENDISH CAT TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Cavendish is a sweet little kitten, and knitted in soft and cuddly alpaca yarn. You can knit your own cat with this knitting pattern.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the cat, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The cat’s head pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- Alpaca Double Knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in cream and brown; I used Stylecraft Alpaca DK
- Toy filling
- Beads for eyes and a small amount of pink yarn to embroider the nose
