Pattern Description from Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: “In all our years of friendship and business together, it never occurred to me to ask Karen about the origins of the name of her shop. But since we both like cats, and she always used three cats in her logo, I created a simple toy kitten in her honor and as a tribute to all those years of owning 3 Kittens. Once you start knitting, there’s no reason to sop at just three. Litters come in all sizes!”
