What children love are animals. Why not knit one in a cat form that has the head on one end and tail at the other end. Looks like the cat has wrapped itself around childs neck. Has easy to do legs on each end of body too! This is fun to knit! All the children and grandchildren will want one just like it! Finished size is about 40 inches long. Head is easily knit, stuffed and sewn on later. Knitting needles, US # 8.
