Tabby is a cuddly striped knitted kitten with a little snuggly cardigan. With this knitting pattern you can make your own tabby cat and cardigan. The cats in the photos are all knitted from the same pattern, just in different yarns/colours.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a knitting pattern and instructions so you can make your own tabby cat; you are not buying the finished toy.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the cat and cardigan, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 6 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes (change colour at the end of a row) and sew seams. To minimise seaming, the cat’s body and legs are all knitted in one piece.

- A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight) for the cardigan
- Aran yarn (worsted weight) for the cat
- Toy filling
- Small buttons or beads for the eyes

FINISHED SIZE: The finished tabby cat is 27cm high, (from feet to top of ears).

DELIVERY: The patterns are available as an instant download after payment, or just send me a note if you would like a pdf copy sent by email too. For more details about instant downloads on Etsy visit http://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949

MULTI-BUY DISCOUNT: If you buy two or more of my patterns you can get 20% off your purchase if you enter the discount code KNITME at the Etsy checkout.
