Knit Your Own Cat: Easy-to-Follow Patterns for 16 Frisky Felines by Sally Muir, Joanna Osborne


Cat lovers, rejoice! It's the highly anticipated follow-up book to Knit Your Own Dog. With easy-to-follow instructions for 16 distinct felines, Knit Your Own Cat is the irresistible guide to knitting the pet you've always wanted.

Cats and knitters are perfect companions. What's better together than a kitten curled up in a basket of wool or a frisky feline chasing a skein of yarn down a hallway? Since the instant success of Knit Your Own Dog, cat lovers have been clamoring for a book of their own. That time has come. Knit Your Own Cat is packed with knitting patterns for 16 different fanciful felines, from a pretty Persian to a sleek Siamese, from a cuddly kitten to a traditional tabby. The cats are surprisingly easy to make: With a few evenings of work, you can have a covetable companion for life. Each cat includes clear, step-by-step instructions for both knitting and assembling the parts. The cats can be knit into various positions such as standing, sitting, crouching, and curled up for a nap. You can add details like collars, bells, and bows. Photographs throughout show the finished cat from various angles, and each cat is accompanied by a description of its real-life temperament and physical characteristics. Cats include: Abyssinian, Bengal, Black Cat, Black & White, British Shorthair, Burmese, Devon Rex, Kitten, Maine Coon, Orange, Persian, Ragdoll, Siamese, Tabby, Tortoiseshell, and Turkish Van.

This is a great book for people who love cats. The authors have included patterns for cats in different positions, including standing, sitting, curled up, etc. The instructions are not too hard, but they are for knitters with some experience. These little kitties make great knitted gifts for anyone, especially for people who love cats but can't have one of their own. One more note, I am grateful to the authors for this book for a very personal reason. We have had several cats over the years, and even though we have pictures of most of them, we still miss them very much when they are gone. This book has inspired me to knit little kitties that look like my beloved little friends who are no longer with us. Thank you Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne. I loved your book!

Fun and easy to follow. Can use larger needles and heavier yarn to change up the size. Am looking forward to her other knit animal books.
