This is a project I've had in mind for a while. And of course, I had to put my own geeky spin on it! ;) So here they are!- Puppycat and CookieCat!

I honestly wish these came out cuter and that the ears were pointier. If I find a way to do it, I'll be sure to update this for you all. :)

Pattern is written out in two sizes! Adult small and average. I wrote in the extra details with how to make Puppycat. Of course, the pattern is very versatile, so you can keep it one color, or change colors whenever you want.

  • Step 1

    Finished dimensions-
    Adult small: 8 inches long, 8 inches around
    Adult large: 8 1/2 inches long, 10 inches around

    Materials-
    I used Lion Brand Super Saver worsted weight yarn with a US8/6mm circular knitting needle (you can use DPNs, but make sure you keep your stitches divided in half so that you can differentiate the front and back of your project). You will also need scissors, a darning/tapestry needle, buttons for eyes, and small amounts of other colored yarn for details.

    Abbreviations-
    STS - Stitches
    K - Knit
    K2Tog - Knit 2 together
    P - Purl
    M1R - Make 1 right leaning stitch
    M1L - Make 1 left leaning stitch
    S2KP- Slip 1, Knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over the k2tog

  • Step 2

    Ok! Let's get started~
    Cast on 30 (36) sts, and join in a round.

    Cuff:
    Work in 1x1 rib for 15 rounds.

  • Step 3

    Body:
    Knit 15 rounds
    Any color variations you want to add would probably go best here.

    For Puppycat:
    Knit 5 rounds in off-white.
    Switch to pink. Knit 5 rounds.
    Switch back to off-white. Knit 5 rounds.

    For Cookie Cat:
    Continue knitting in dark brown for 5 rounds.
    Switch to pink. Knit 2 rounds.
    Switch back to brown. Knit 1 round.
    Switch to yellow. Knit 2 rounds.
    Switch back to brown. Knit 5 rounds.

  • Step 4

    *IMPORTANT* At this point, make sure your glove's stitches are divided in half. This will help keep the thumb gusset on one side, and the face details on the other side.

  • Step 7

    Ears:
    Before you start, make sure you sts are still divided in half. The ears are going to be worked on the opposite side of where your thumb gusset is.

    Round 1: Knit around. If you're going to change colors for the ears, this is the round to do it.
    Even rounds 2-6: Knit 4, M1R, Knit 2, S2KP, Knit 2, M1L, Knit 4, knit around
    Rounds 3-7: Purl around

    [For average size only] Do an extra 2 rounds in this pattern.
