Charlie the kitten is just like most cats. He loves napping in the sunshine, ear scratching and bowls of fresh milk. You can usually find him curled up on a cushion. Apart from Fridays, when he’s out disco dancing, but then every cat needs a secret hobby….

Charlie measures about 8 inches sitting in a DK yarn, but he can be made from any weight yarn and appropriate hook for different sizes. The pattern contains instructions for both a jointed kitten and a kitten with fixed arms and legs. It is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of photos and diagrams and you will always be welcome to contact me for any extra help.
