Sandy is knit from the top of the head down seamlessly except for the ears and muzzle.  First the head is knit, then the neck.  Next come the shoulders and mid-section increases.  After your increases you will separate the arms from the body putting the arms on waste yarn while you continue with the body.  After the trunk is knit you will switch to seed stitch to give the impression of scales, and shape the rear end.  The instructions for this part are very similar to knitting a heel flap, turning a heel, and picking up stitches for a rapidly decreased gusset.  This makes her sit purrfectly!  Next, you continue in seed stitch with the tail decreasing as the pattern indicates.  You finish with the tail fin.  Now you stuff the head and up to the arms, finish the arms, knit the ears, muzzle and accessories, and add details such as eyes, claws, mouth and nose.

Super fun knit that is sure to delight!
