Cats are popular pets all over the world, so it seemed only natural to create a knitting book especially for all the cat lovers out there. This book contains a wide variety of cats and kittens to knit - from fun and quirky, to cute and cuddly - and you don't have to clean up after these ones! Each cat has its own look and personality, and they come in a range of characters, styles, shapes and sizes to suit knitters of all tastes and abilities. There are also a number of feline projects to make - including a hot water bottle cover and a doorstop, so (unlike real cats!) they can make themselves useful around the house. And of course, all cats need a few accessories, so the author has included a knitted scratching post (complete with dangly bird to play with), a cat basket and some colourful knitted balls - not forgetting an entire family of tiny knitted mice! Each pattern comes with a comprehensive list of the yarns, needles and embellishments you need, and there are general notes too on basic techniques, materials and equipment. Filled with fun from cover to cover, you will love these adorable knitted cats and kittens - and so will anyone you choose to knit them for!
