The only question I've been getting is about "Pu" - that's an abbreviation for "pick up stitches." Check out page 263 of SNBN for the tutorial.
There really was a kitty monster that hotwired my car and drove off. The vehicle was later recovered, but the kitty monster had escaped. To make a kitty, use the piggy pattern for the ears. Cut out felt teeth as for the bunny pattern, and trim into fangs. Do not leave unattended in a motor vehicle. Also has unfortunate tendency to chew on headset cords.
There are two mods of the pattern posted on Craftster - a piggy resized to fit a digital camera, and a piggy modded to hold an iPod. [update 27 Aug 05] Mod of the pattern to make a Goofy Hot Pink Kitty! Done in bright orange and with cute button eyes, iPod Piggy. An assortment of piggies and a bunny.
Susan Beal was inspired by my design to make a Year of the Pig iPod Cozy, sewn up out of a felted sweater.
