CAT knitting pattern 🐈
Hi! As I mentioned yesterday, I was asked to help creating some more CAT blocks. So here’s another CAT knitting pattern! 😀
Christine wants to add these new blocks to my previous CAT pattern and my PAW PRINT pattern to create a PURRfect blanket for her granddaughter. And I LOOOVE the idea!! I’m sure many cat loving people will find them useful too.
So here’s the first one! If you want to give more ideas for CAT related blocks, please leave a comment below.
THE ENTIRE CAT KNITTING PATTERN (written and charted) IS BELOW.
- CO: cast on
- RS: right side
- WS: wrong side
- st: stitch
- k: knit
- p: purl
– 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, CATS collection N°1 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.
k all sts, all rows.

Thank you, love the animal squares, blanket for charity. 🙂
That’s so nice of you! 💖
WONDERFUL! I have enjoyed your two previous feline cloths and now I can’t wait for more! Thank you for sharing your creativity.
You’re welcome!! I think the next one will combine a heart and a paw. Or a cat looking a fish… I’m receiving a lot of great ideas!! xo
Looking forward to knitting it and seeing future blocks – love the idea…
I’m currently teaching myself to lace knit through your Lace KAL(some serious frogging has gone on from time to time, although I am getting better and more accepting of my mistakes. My friends who are serious knitters would spot the error and undo it, I have come to accept that everything doesn’t have to be perfect but I am trying my best! But amongst the frustration I am getting a lot of satisfaction out of learning something new and challenging.
I look forward to doing just plain old purl and knit
Good for you! That’s the only way to learn: try, correct if needed, and try again. I’m happy you have friends to help you 😊
I have lots of purl and knits patterns here, I’m sure you will find many projects to make when you need a rest from the more challenging lace. Let me know if you need something or have a question.
Hugs to you!
So I have cast on and knitted 4 rows. What is next? Directions are not clear to me. I’m not an experienced knitter.
How much yarn does this pattern require?
