Cat Pants

Posted by Avital Pinnick on February 12, 2010

Poor Vincent. He must be so upset that his initial was stitched upside-down. Silly me — the letter was a last-minute request from Masha after the pants were nearly finished and it never occurred to me that it would be inverted when the cat was posed on his hind legs! Mind you, I wasn’t altogether certain that they’d get the cat pants on in the first place, despite Masha’s assurances that Vincent is an abnormally docile cat. A neutered tom with a 23″ waist? I should say so.

Here are the finished cat pants, right after I had fastened the yarn ends. The outfit is based on a Russian comic strip. Vincent’s owner, a friend of Masha’s, was presented with a cat ensemble, including hat and scarf, at her birthday party. I presume she’s the one holding the cat in this photo.

Knitted Cat Pants

Vincent’s cat pants are finished. These pants would fit a good-sized frozen chicken.

The initial was an afterthought, so it was embroidered.

As soon as I finish blocking the back end so that it lies flat, I’ll give it to Masha. If they succeed in getting the cat to wear this outfit, she will try to take pictures. I’m glad I won’t be there. 🙂

If you’re wondering what this is about, see my earlier post. Apparently the colour is not critical, so Masha chose red.

Cat Pants

Posted by Avital Pinnick on November 30, 2009

That strange knitting commission I mentioned in October has come back to haunt me. Masha and her friends want me to knit a pair of pants for a particular cat, like the ones on this cartoon character.

She just sent me the cat’s waist circumference — 59 cm! That’s 23 inches. This is like knitting pants for a child, except that the legs are a lot shorter. No wonder this cat is on a special diet.

I asked her whether they’d taken the measurements correctly, pulling the tape snug around the “waist”. Indeed, they had. She did warn me that he’s a very big cat. Apparently the colour isn’t critical, so we agreed on bright red.
