The Sitting Kitten - and you know you HAVE to make two - twins!

As with all my patterns - minimal seams and join as you go - in this case there is NOTHING that is joined on afterwards (I’m personally pleased to say…)

REFERS TO EARLIER COPIES (Jan 13th and before)

Chin Marker - same as Jaw Marker
Top of Nose and Forehead
Working on the 9 sts as follows:
Rows 8-12 Beginning with a purl row work five rows stocking stitch
Row 13 Kfb, k to last st, kfb - 11sts
Row 14 Purl
Row 15 Kfb, k to last st, kfb - 13sts
Row 16-18 Beginning with a purl row work three rows stocking stitch
PM at each end for left & right ear back markers.
Row 19-22 Work four rows stocking stitch
PM at each end for left & right neck markers.
Cast off 13 sts for Neck.

And I use two strands yarn together - in this case the most beautifully soft Drops Sky together with Drops Kid-Silk… a beautiful combination or kitten-softness!

Stuff lightly and use resin or plastic safety eyes with metal or plastic washer backs. (either 12mm or 14mm - I buy mine from Etsy and Ebay)
