Sandi Cat Cushion

By Rita Taylor

Calico Cat can be used as either a cuddly cushion or a large soft toy.  The colour is similar to that of Sandy, one of my childhood cats, who was also very cuddly.  You may find it easier to keep track of the increases and decreases by using a row counter.

The larger cushion pictured was knit using 2 skeins of Ancient Arts 100% Blue Faced Leicester Wool DK in Calico Cat.
