Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round
  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

We are back! I(tm)m back from hospital (got rid of Freddie, the 2kg myoma, R.I.P.) and the black cat is, too!

My arm is still a mess, my plumbing in my tummy is not okay yet, the brackets hurt (I look like I have a zipper on my belly), I(tm)m freezing. The hole Freddie left, seems to be a bit chilly :)
But time will heal

The cat and stripes beanie is another only two color hat and matches the double knitting cat scarf.

The two are a great set!

And it(tm)s also suitable for color knitting beginners as there are only two colors throughout the whole beanie.

It(tm)s completely knitted in 4-ply sock yarn but you can also use Merino or Acrylic yarn of similar weight.

It has a two color ribbing, featuring the cats in stripes, the big black cat diva looking over her shoulder and the smaller playful kitten trying to catch a butterfly.
Little cat paw prints complete the beanie.

At the top are 10 sitting smaller cats.

Enjoy and happy kitty knitting!
And thanks to all of you sending me so many get well wishes and keeping your fingers crossed for me!

You are great!
I wish you all a happy Easter!
