  1. i am knitting Bracken the cat for my grandaughter. finished the body length, squared it off, and then the directions say pick up 14 more stitches. the word more is confusing me. i have 1 stitch left on my needle after the squaring off – am i supposed to pick up 14 stitches across the whole end and then knit the head? where do the front legs attach? thanks for your help.

  2. It’s a long time since I made this so my memory is not clear, I’m afraid but as far as I remember –

    Yes – across the whole end for the head.
    Pick up stitches behind the ears for the legs. You could cast on 7 sts then work the legs and sew them on after wards, not so neat!

    (Please note that I put CO for cast on and cast off – UK terminology – not realising it might confuse those who use the expression bind off, I think, from what others have said that there were no problems!)

  3. thanks. last question – then I think I “got” it. do I square off the tail end too – like the head end was squared off?
    my cat for Kennie is gray with white nose and paws (and the last nose rows are pink :). looks pretty cool…….

  5. Does The m1 means add a stitch? I’m a Yank and not sure what you mean by this. I got the C for cast on or off but the “m ” I figured means add a stich right? Love the pattern , so cute ! Thank you Linda
