kitty pi v3.0

pattern: Wendy’s Kitty Pi
yarn: Cascade 220 – used up lots of partial balls in blue/grey/black
needles: Clover US11
modifications: I used a double strand of yarn and did an i-cord bindoff instead of fur since this kitty bed is for an 18yo boy’s new kitten.

Blocked on a plastic chip and dip container I bought at JoAnn last summer or the summer before.

I seem to knit things 3 times before I can be happy with them. This project was no exception. The first time I just picked colors randomly and knit it stripes . . . ripped it out right before the last increase. The second time I started with the dark colors and started knittting from dark to light . . . go to row 20 (or so) after the last increase and didn’t like it and ripped it out. For the final version I lined up the blues from light to dark and did the same with the black/greys and paired the lightest of one with the darkest of the other and added yarn in reverse order (clear as mud?) and that’s the one I kept. I think I overthink these things, I mean it’s just a cat bed, lol.

  1. It turned out great I love it! I have had this pattern printed off for just about a year, how long did it take to finish any chance I could make one by Christmas?

  2. Hey, a cat bed is a big thing!! πŸ˜‰ I love the way yours turned out. I’ve got to get working on mine. I’ve got two cats which means two beds and lots of decisions, just like you, I think a lot about what I’m going to do.
