Kai The Kitty

Kai The Kitty is the sleepiest kitty around. She can nap just about anywhere, and will become your best friend if you let her snuggle up next to you.

Skill Level: Easy

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Kai The Kitty is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Kai The Kitty is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately three inches tall.  Be aware that the final size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!
