Basic Skills Necessary:

  • circular knitting

Pattern Description:

It was all started with a "baby animal contest" that was held by Knitty City in Manhattan. I made a little yellow kitty and won 2nd place. That first kitty was 'sculpted' and I didn't use any pattern (or made one out of it). It turns out that the customers love it and want the pattern.

Garo the Cat is the second and revised version of the Knitty City kitty.
