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!

I'm a hobby pattern creator and love knitting and creating Fair Isle patterns. I wish you as much fun knitting and wearing them as I have designing them! If you like my patterns checkout my patterns at or Ravelry. You can either search for stoperror or find me under the designers as Sandra Jaeger. Please note: Due to the VAT-tax changes taking effect on January 1 2015 I had to delete my on sale Patterns on Craftsy as there is no way to handle the new tax Regulation affecting European buyers via Craftsy. Ravelry tries to come up with a solution. If you are from not EU-based countries or from Germany you can still buy my on sale Patterns as usual via Ravelry. If you are from a European (not Germany) Country unfortunately there is no solution how to handle it at the Moment. Ravelry tries to come up with a solution in the next 6 months. Until then my sales are limited to non EU users and Germany. I'm very sorry for that, but the new rule is very complicated. Jippie we got ourself a Ravelry group: The knitting chartists where you can make pattern requests and take part in our pattern development. T-Shirts gibt's von mir auch bei spreadshirt. News 2016: I can now republish priced standalone Charts that were available at Craftsy on Loveknitting. If you are missing one, please let me know via and I will offer it there and send you an update.
