These three little kittens haven’t lost their mittens, they’re having fun tearing up the nursery! Knit them before they scarper!

Note: These kittens are knitted from the bottom paw up through the Hind Legs towards the Head. The Fore Legs are picked up from each side of the Body and knitted after the Body and Head have been completed. The Front and Back are then sewn together around the outside. The Dungarees are worked in two main pieces from the top down. The straps are knitted separately. To aid with finishing, leave long cast-on and cast-off tails for sewing up seams.
