Maisie is a ~14 week old kitten weighing about 3 lbs. It is easy to adjust the size of this pattern for other kittens or small pets.

  • J hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Kitten

Abbreviations:

  • Dc = double crochet
  • Sc = single crochet
  • Ch = chain
  • Sl = slip stitch
  • The number is parentheses after each line indicates the number of stitches you should have in the row/round.

  8. YELLOW. Ch 3, dc around, sl. (25)
