Child’s Kitty Cat Pullover

Designer Lynn McCarthy got the idea for this cat design from a black and white sketch with very simple, geometric lines. I tried translating the sketch into intarsia and loved the result. Work the cat to match your own favorite feline, or use eyelash yarn for a furry look.

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.

The intarsia pattern is presented in charted format.
