Introducing my lazy fat cats, Ginger and Smudge! Ginger, the orange striped cat, is having a little rest (well it is hard work being a cat), and he could make a sweet doorstop. Smudge is the grey sitting cat, and you could use him as a bookend. Ginger is approximately 13 cm tall and 20 cm long, and Smudge is approximately 17 cm tall and 13 cm wide. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. Smudge uses kitchener stitch grafting. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes and sew seams.
