Another pattern for all cat-loving people! This time I decided to embroider some whiskers into my CAT’S HEAD square, using contrasting yarn. It’s absolutely optional but I think it would look cute if used as a blanket block 🙂
THE ENTIRE CAT KNITTING PATTERN (written and charted) IS BELOW.
– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
|I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.|
– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.
|Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.|
– Continue working as follows:
4 garter sts, CAT HEAD knitting pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts (55 rows).
– Knit 4 rows.
– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends. OPTIONAL: emboider whiskers 🙂
