More Purrfect Cats Day 17

 Surprise!  There are 12 cats 
My eldest daughter made the Christmas wreath years ago.

pull one of the strings of the picot out!
unless you make really long picots which are little harder to do for me I really don't use gauge.
  Two kinds of ears shown here.  Don't forget to mark and switch shuttles at where tail meets cat to avoid confusion. 

To make 12 cats, make tails longer, 5ds p, 10ds, p, 5 ds.
I also reduced the bodies 5 ds between picots, but don't have too.
the pdf is on previous blog at bottom, just add the tail change to the 6 cat directions if want to to 12 cats.

  4. Thank you, Diane educated me in The Real Snowflakes and said they had to be in multiples of 6 so that's why I picked 12! OK there is a little truth to what I said, but, I did this snowflake first, when I was figuring the tail length and the tails where too long and the curve too big for 6 cats it is a bit much but I like it!

  5. The kitties are so precious! I love it in the wreath too. The humane society needs a wreath like this. :)

    1. I pick up my husband from work today, and there is one next to where he works I am going to drop one by, with a bag of food, and next year I think I'll make some up so they can sell them to raise money!
