After quite a while in the thinking, designing and finally the making I’ve completed what I’ve been wanting to create for a long time - MY OWN CAT!

I can’t have the real thing so this is my second best bestie…

She is knitted as a modular piece - so she is joined as you go (and don’t worry, there are plenty of clear instructions and diagrams to help you along and also a YouTube video - which is here should you wish to check it out beforehand)

I’ve knitted her with three strands of yarn at once, that’s two mohair and one alpaca - to get that cat fur blend effect - and I’ve given you two colourways too - but of course, there are so many options open for your interpretation - and I’d love to see yours when it’s done - tag it with the hashtag #imadethatcat - please!

Eyes-wise - I used eyes from CelloExpress on Ebay but there are lots of choices - try Etsy for example… it depends where you live!

Do have fun with this pattern - it’s a bit of a challenge but perfectly do-able and you too can have a cat to call your own!

Now what name shall I choose? Any ideas?
