    The playful cat turned out even better than I’d hoped it would. I love the patterns from KBP. Always so easy to follow – always a great finished product.

    A very easy pattern to follow. As an experienced knitter, perhaps mentioning in the instructions to cast on loosely, especially for the head , would be beneficial for beginner knitters. One cat aleady completed and number two underway.
