Cute Little Kittens

I discovered a cute pattern for a cat by Ala & Ela and just love the way the little kittens turned out. They are all made from the same pattern but with a few modifications.

Sailor Sue

Sailor Kitty 4

Both cat and clothes were knitted in DK on 4mm needles and she turned out to be 10″ in height.

These cats are not just for the nursery, I think they would make a lovely gift for adults, especially cat lovers.

Novelty Footwear

There is something very satisfying in knitting little booties and shoes, they are a quick knit and  guaranteed to bring out a smile and an ahhhh response.

Woodland Booties

Owl booties

I thought this time I would go for owl booties, to make a change from the usual bunny and duck ones

DSCN5952

They are knitted in DK  on 3mm needles They are knitted in woodland colours, a light fawn with orange piping and a green cuff. Sole of the booties are  4.5 inches (11 cm) with plenty of stretch so will fit baby 3-6 months and beyond.  The ribbed cuff gives a snug fit around the ankles so should hopefully stay on without the need to tie in place with ribbons.

To match the booties I knitted a little owl toy, which measures 7″, a good size to fit in the corner of a cot or play pen and of course for little hands to hold.

Little Puppy Slippers

These little slippers were knitted for twins, they were knitted in DK on 3.75mm needles and would fit babies 0-3 months.

The little puppy heads were a bit fiddly to assemble and attach to the booties, but well worth the effort.

After knitting  the  slippers for the boy/girl twins I was asked to knit some more for girl twins.
