Pattern notes:

The pattern is worked in the round, Head, ears, body, arms, legs and tail is worked separately and then sewn tog.

The white cotton yarn is used to sew each part tog and create the shape of the face.

Safety eyes and nose is recommended to put in place before stuffing the head, I have not put the eyes in place to be able to show how you sew to get the head shape.

If you are making this cat for a child under the age of 3, I recommend you do not put fake eyelashes on the cat.
