Knit your own kitty cat!!

Wouldn’t this be a wonderful gift for a cat lover. With this knitting pattern you can make the black and Siamese cat, but also the brown/ecru and gray/white cat.

If you use the yarn that I recommend, the cat pillow will be approx. 34 cm high and 23 cm wide / 13.4 inch high and 9.1 inch wide when lightly stuffed.

Pattern:
1: make front and back of the pillow
2: place safety eyes and embroider nose and whiskers on the front.
3: sew the front and back together (insert stuffing)

You will get the pattern with English and Dutch knitting terms.
Used stitches: If you are familiar with increasing and decreasing and changing colors you should have no trouble with this pattern.
