There are so many cute knitting patterns for plush animals, but almost none of them are beginner friendly. This little kitty is here to change that! This EASY Plush Cat Knitting Pattern is so easy, anyone with basic knitting skills can make it. It’s knit flat, in 3 pieces and then seamed together. The eyes and mouth are sewn on after you’re finished.
This little guy makes a great gift (if you’re giving this to a small child, swap out the button eyes for embroidered ones). You could also make them in black for Halloween decorations.
This is a fast knit and it’s great for making use of scrap yarn!
