Cuddle Cat

p1

This is my Cuddle Cat! The one on the left that is… I got a surprise visit when I had the photoshoot.

(Här finns mönstret på svenska.)

The pattern is very similar to my pattern Cuddle Dog, the body is made the same way, but the color scheme and other parts differs.

P2

I used cotton yarn that gives 160 m/ 50 g (175 yds/1.8 oz.) and a 2,5 mm hook. The length of the cat is about 37 cm (14,5″). The colors needed are: red, yellow, orange and white yarn and a little bit of pink yarn. 1 skein (50g) of each color was enough.

The cat actually has hind legs as well but they are hidden (much like a real cat). There’s a picture at the bottom of the page where you can see them.
