3 Jul 17 Toddler Cat Suite - Belly design

DK Grid
As instructed I am going for a jumper and dungarees.  for age 12 to 18 months plus a bit extra. Because it is versatile.  There will be a hat and socks as well.  if I run out of colours there is always Boyes up the town.

I will be using stylecraft life yarn. for me this is best balance of quality and price.

I hope to start on this today after I have finished the socks I am knitting

Cat belly design the green is to be knitted white on both the jumper and the dungarees.

The dimensions for the pattern are from Drops

2 Jul 17 Todler Cat Suite part one

This is for my African grandson 1 in September so making it 18 months plus

Knitted DK - I need to find a pattern.  My preference is for red bordered one. raglan sleeve for the cardigan

Black back top and trousers

The hat will be a simple tube with a white triangle in the ribbing.  The corners sewn together to make the ears and a crochet edging to  make bigger .

I have something I can draw the jumper and dungarees pattern on.

I prefere to knit in the round, however, that is not possible here apart from the legs and arms
