If you’re tired of Santas, snowmen and reindeers, I have a cat for your tree this year! And because at the bottom of my heart I’m really traditional, I added a bauble, too. And, apparently, the kitty doesn’t mind…

I knit all my toys on circular needles with the magic loop method, but you can use DPNs if you prefer.

There’s a printable version of the pattern availlable at the end of the file, so that you can save ink and paper :)

- yarn: worsted weight
MC: gray (semi-solid in my case) – 45m
CC1: white – 16m
CC2: red – 30m

  • circular needle (80cm/32”) or DPNs: 2.75 to 3mm (or the size you usually use to knit toys with worsted yarn – we need tight stitches)
  • stuffing
  • safety eyes (6mm)
  • scrap yarn for nose (pink)
