My daughter has been asking me to knit her an orange cat for ages, and when I got this yarn from Tanis Fiber Arts Year in Colour Club back in March, I knew it would make a perfect cat. (the yarn has some sparkle to it to make it even more fun!)
The toy is knit seamlessly starting with the head, and it is stuffed as you go. From a sitting position it sits about 9 inches high, and it used about 60 grams of fingering (sock) weight yarn, and a scarf is totally optional.
I used some random bit of sock yarn to embroider a nose and mouth plus some whiskers.
The pattern has been tech edited and test knit.
