This adorable little kitty is perfect for snuggling. Even adults won’t be able to resist cradling this sleepy lovey in their arms. Sleepy Kitty is worked starting with the face, in the round; short rows are used to shape the head. After working the head, the body and belly are continued flat. The back paws are begun like thumb gussets and stitches are held to be worked later. The front paws, tail, and ears are worked separately and then sewn on. Paw and ear stitching are charted.
