Knit your own Kitty Puff.

Yes I have the knitting pattern right here. Use for your cats, use for yourself, knit millions and take over the planet with little woollen puffs. Knit kitty puffs, knit chickie puffs, knit lion puffs, raid your wool stash and get knitting.

The pattern is very easy and quick so great for beginners.

You don’t need much materials, a small amount of wool, if you have to change colour half-way through, great, your puff will look even better.
Get an old pillow and take out the stuffing, stuff with some cat-nip for very happy pusses.

The pattern

Cast on 18 stitches.

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: Knit

Row 4 : Purl

Rows 5-20 (repeat rows 1 and 2 8 times)

Row 21 : [K2TOG] across row – 18 stitches

Row 22 : Purl

Row 23 : [K2TOG] across row – 9 stitches

Cut your wool leaving a very long end. Thread the end into a needle and go back through the last 9 stiches left. Pull tight. Face the right sides of your puff together and sew up the seam until you reach the original cast on stitches.

Turn back out so the right sides are facing back out.

Stuff your puff.

Sew up the cast on edge with a running stitch so it creates a flat edge. You can get creative here and try and pull up little ears if you want. Doesn’t matter if your puff looks strange. You cat will still adore it.

Sew on a nose with a different colour wool and a mouth.

Sew on eyes.

Leave somewhere for your cat to stare at it for days until four am in the morning when you will hear the happy yowling of a cat with it’s puff.

Lovely to see Gruff with his newest playmate outside together chasing grass blades and toy mice.

To think she was unwanted when you see her play with such joy.

Two gentle friends enjoying just being free.

Can’t be shown, won’t be shown. Has to learn it himself. Can’t think who on earth he gets that from.

Space hopper.

This space hopper has been outside in the garden for years. I remember Millie playing on it when she was little and as mucky as it looks, its little painted on smile is still, (eerily), cheery looking.
It still bounces (with the right pilot), magnificently.

The rocket.

We bought a rocket stomper for the kids, turns out the dog is it’s biggest fan!
