Knit Your Own Cat: Easy-to-Follow Patterns for 16 Frisky Felines

Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne. Black Dog & Leventhal, $14.95 trade paper (144p) ISBN 978-1-57912-893-7
Muir and Osborne (Knit Your Own Dog) have followed up their popular book of knitted canines with a purr-fect sequel for cat-lovers. These cute creatures are surprisingly fast to knit, and the patterns run the gamut from the delicate, sophisticated Persian, to the stealthy, spotted Bengal, to the striped, loveable Tabby, among others. The book's sixteen patterns are divided into four sections: Long-haired, Short-haired, Exotic, and Street. Each pattern has a handful of fun tidbits about its featured feline, and offers lovely pictures of the finished project. The book also details options for knitting standing, sitting, lying down, or curled-up cats, as well as individualizing each cat with added accents like bells, bows, and collars. From fast-knit solo cats to full-blown menageries, these projects are a great way to turn yarn scraps into tiny cuddly companions. (Feb.)
