The Cat’s Whiskers is knitted in pieces from the bottom up; the
neckline is knitted on in the round after seaming the shoulders of
the jumper. The cat motif is added using the intarsia colourwork
method, using separate balls or bobbins of yarn for each section,
and the cat’s features are sewn on at the end using embroidery
and duplicate stitch. The cat’s mouth is worked in upside-down
duplicate stitch so that the sewn stitches sit between the knitted
stitches. When reading the chart, each square represents one
stitch. Read the chart in the same direction as you knit – RS (knit)
rows from right to left, WS (purl) rows from left to right.
