• Getting Started
To make the cat we first start making the top of the head. We work our way down to the body. The head and the body are one continuous piece.
After that, we make the ears, legs, arms, tail, and green eyes!

Popcorn Stitch
This pattern uses a popcorn stitch to make the toes. If you don’t know how to make one, no worries! I explain how to once we get to that part.

 

First we’re starting by making the top of the cat’s head and work our way down to the body. The head and the body are one continuous piece.
