We've been to a party today. For our little friend 'B' who turned 5!
She loves cats, especially her own kitten, so I thought I would have a go at knitting one (a bit like Him) for her.
I've come across a few animals to knit in the Waldorf/Steiner style, that are based on geometric shapes. This kitten cat is another, made up of two rectangles and a square.
However, if you need a pattern, 'Knitted Animals' is a wonderful book for beginners like me (with an inclination to knit animals!)
Here's how Anne-Dorthe Grigaff's kitten cats
Sewing up the square of the body, and shaping into legs.
Here He is (B's kitten is a He) from above.
I added the whiskers, using a thin fishing line (not too stiff nor scratchy), which I latchooked into place.
Happy Birthday B!
