Yes, I am aware that technically this is an International Cat Mask, but I couldn’t resist the lure of the ninja. Besides, cats are natural ninjas. They are sneaky, stealthy, and when provoked by wild spiders, they are swift assassins.

This mask is knit starting at the eye hole and ending at the ear holes. Much like a toe up sock, the beauty of this ninja mask is that, cat willing, you can try it on your cat as you knit and adjust the pattern as you go. My pattern is an outline of what I did, but unless your cat has the same head size as Fifty-Fifty, you’ll have to modify the pattern.
