Black cats beanie

from Sandra Jaeger's Strickstuebchen
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Black cats beanie
Black cats beanie
Black cats beanie
Black cats beanie

Pattern Description:

This cat was part of one of my first free designs on Ravelry.
It has come back in 2012 to give something back to all my supporters and friends.

The beanie is knit with at most two colors in one round!
By changing the colors you can create a variety of different looking cat hats.

It has the left big cat as a band on it and a cute paw peerie pattern around.
Otherwise it(tm)s plain-coloured.

You can choose between three ending versions.

- a simply (long) beanie like style
- a long beanie with a pompon
- Or a cool cat tail with a knot on it.

I did the end of the tail in white (about 7 rounds).
But you can certainly also do the whole beanie in stripes and then make a striped tail or whatever comes to your mind.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
