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.
