Round 30: Cast off and break yarn leaving an extra long tail

Sew closed then crochet 3 chains then crochet back towards head picking up the first 3 chains and then pick one up on the head next to ear.  Do this to both sides.  (you should be able to string your long tail through the top so you don't have to cut and re-attach for other ear) Knot off the last ear but don't cut.  Draw the yarn down through the head and wrap around the neck drawing it tight and knotting it off.

Pick up three stitches at the base with double pointed needles (this will be the tail) 

Knit one row

Work in I cord for about 1/2 inch or until a pleasing length has been met. Sew in yarn ends.

Make French knots for eyes in the yellow.

How cute! Wish I could knit. I can crochet, mostly things like dishcloths.
We have two black cats now. Luna in our indoor one and Mr. Peabody is an outdoor cat that has adopted us. I want to get him neutered than he can join us inside!

My son knitted his brother a little kitten for his birthday last year that looked just like this.. so precious.

I saw on a comment you made that you will be RV'ing.. we just returned after two months and head out again in spring time. We had a lovely time.. the joys of homeschooling. Let me know how it goes.

This is such a great little cat! I went a little nuts knitting for halloween this year, but a great black cat is already on my list for next.
