Surpised how good this book is
on February 7, 2012
The patterns are written in a very clear row by row manner including shaping and color changes. There is no charting for the color work.
These would be a challenging project for a beginner but there are some plain cats which would be easier. If someone has basic increase decrease knit and purl skills these patterns are doable
The cats are knitted flat and seamed up so no dpns or circular needles required.
The patterns are mainly written for 4ply yarn using US 2 needles but there is no reason why you could not use a heavier yarn with bigger needles to make a bigger cat. Using the recommended materials the standing cats are about 5 inches tall so they are quite quick to make.
The finished products are surprisingly cute.
There are a couple of small typos in the book documented on the authors web site here
