Kitty Kuddles (Free Pattern)


I tried to knit Lion Brand's Bunny Blanket Buddy but found I didn't like the result. The head was too big. The ears were too long and the row of holes along the sides were just begging to trap little baby fingers. This is my simplified version.



Kitty Kuddles



MATERIALS: 1 50g/1.75 oz ball Patons Pixie
1 pair 6.5mm/10.5 US needles
1 pair 5mm/8 US needles
2m/2 yds of black yarn
1 handful of polyester stuffing
1 darning needle

SIZE: 33cm/13 in X 33cm/13 in

TENSION: 14 sts with 5mm/9 US needles = 10 cm/4 inches

Lower Body - With larger needles, cast on 1 stitch.
Working in garter stitch (knit every row) increase 1 stitch at beginning of each row until you have 40 sts on your needle.

Hands - Next row cast on 10 sts. Knit to end of row. (50 sts on needle)
Next row cast on 10 sts. Knit to end of row. (60 sts on needle)
Knit 6 rows.
Next row cast off 10 sts. Knit to end of row. (50 sts on needle)
Next row cast off 10 sts. Knit to end of row. (40 sts on needle)
Tie knots in hands.

Upper Body - Decrease 1 st at beginning of each row until you have 28 sts.

Change to smaller needles and proceed.
