I know just how much real love there is out there for Claire Garland’s Dot Pebbles Knits patterns, so I think you might enjoy knitting this adorable kitten. It’s suitable for beginners, and is designed to follow on from Claire’s Beginner’s Bunny pattern (also free). As well as simple to follow step by steps to knit a kitten, this pattern also includes the cutest of knitted outfits to make – a nurse’s apron, cardigan, Winter romper suit and a tiny Christmas sweater, with optional furry hood.

As I’ve mentioned, this pattern is written for beginners. Although it has all the context and techniques that Claire uses in all her patterns, it is a very much simplified version. It’s not just for beginners though!

Claire describes it as a super stash buster. Claire lists the yarns she has used but she encourages you to use what you have and experiment with colours and textures. Can you think of a more enjoyable and seasonal way to use up your leftover wool?

    I would love to down load your patterns, but I do not want to change my browser.
    is there another way to download without making changes to my computer?
