Belang (means bicolor/piebald in Indonesian) is intended to be used as a neck pillow that can give you the feeling of cuddling with a cat on your neck. The flexibility of this pattern will let you decide where you want the cat's head to be facing. To achieve this furry look on the cat, you will need a pet brush. Before assembly, brush all the knitted cat parts until the desired furriness achieved. Modification tips are included in the pattern. Errata link (for those who download the pattern before Nov 23, 2013): Updated 11/29/2013 : I added a bonus pattern, a smaller neck pillow named "Manis", perfect for kids and travel. Enjoy!
