I have always loved knitting, my mom taught me to knit when I was 5 years old. I live in South Africa with my wonderful husband and our four children. We have a little suburban homestead where we grow veggies and fruit and live a sustainable lifestyle. We have a whole troop of chickens, rabbits, cats, birds, fish and a Labrador called Sandy. I love to create designs of animals. I look at their shape, watch their movement and then I can see a pattern of stitches forming before my eyes, its like magic! Have an inspired day.
This is Pickles the Cat. He is a sweet creature knitted in the round, either in the magic loop or on dpns, your choice. There is minimal sewing in this pattern, I prefer it that way, don't you? :) Even his tail can be knitted attached! Hooray!
He can either be knitted in a DK or a worsted yarn, it's up to you. He is ever so cute an cuddly and easy to carry around and cuddle too.
He is knitted with just 1 skein you your yarn choice.
My pattern is thourough and I have plenty of photos to guide you through the creative process and video and tutorial links to help you with the suggested knitting techniques.
Have fun and happy knitting!
