Unlike some cats Tabitha is dependable but like all cats she’s resourceful. Resouceful in that she is here to use up your odds and ends of stash which you simply can’t bear to throw away. She is just the right project to help you to use up what’s left after knitting a sweater or a pair of socks.

You’ll need around 50m for a DK or small weight yarn and a bit more for chunkier wools. There are more details as to yardage in the pattern itself.

Like all my toys, Tabitha can be made in any wool weight; just choose needles which are a few sizes smaller than those recommended on the label. I knitted Tabitha in Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend (green kitty) on 3.25mm needles and Sokkusu-O (purple & orange kitty) on 2.25mm needles.

Please pop over to the Oliver Boliver group here on Ravelry to show off your FO’s. We’d love to see lots of colourful Tabithas!
