Publisher Comments:

Cat lovers, rejoice! It's the highly anticipated follow-up book to Knit Your Own Dog. With easy-to-follow instructions for 16 distinct felines, Knit Your Own Cat is the irresistible guide to knitting the pet you've always wanted.

Cats and knitters are perfect companions. What's better together than a kitten curled up in a basket of wool or a frisky feline chasing a skein of yarn down a hallway? Since the instant success of Knit Your Own Dog, cat lovers have been clamoring for a book of their own. That time has come. Knit Your Own Cat is packed with knitting patterns for 16 different fanciful felines, from a pretty Persian to a sleek Siamese, from a cuddly kitten to a traditional tabby. The cats are surprisingly easy to make: With a few evenings of work, you can have a covetable companion for life. Each cat includes clear, step-by-step instructions for both knitting and assembling the parts. The cats can be knit into various positions such as standing, sitting, crouching, and curled up for a nap. You can add details like collars, bells, and bows. Photographs throughout show the finished cat from various angles, and each cat is accompanied by a description of its real-life temperament and physical characteristics. Cats include: Abyssinian, Bengal, Black Cat, Black & White, British Shorthair, Burmese, Devon Rex, Kitten, Maine Coon, Orange, Persian, Ragdoll, Siamese, Tabby, Tortoiseshell, and Turkish Van.

Review:

"Muir and Osborne (Knit Your Own Dog) have followed up their popular book of knitted canines with a purr-fect sequel for cat-lovers. These cute creatures are surprisingly fast to knit, and the patterns run the gamut from the delicate, sophisticated Persian, to the stealthy, spotted Bengal, to the striped, loveable Tabby, among others. The book's sixteen patterns are divided into four sections: Long-haired, Short-haired, Exotic, and Street. Each pattern has a handful of fun tidbits about its featured feline, and offers lovely pictures of the finished project. The book also details options for knitting standing, sitting, lying down, or curled-up cats, as well as individualizing each cat with added accents like bells, bows, and collars. From fast-knit solo cats to full-blown menageries, these projects are a great way to turn yarn scraps into tiny cuddly companions. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
