5 Big Cat Patterns to Celebrate World Wildlife Day

With 2018’s World Wildlife Day celebrating Big Cats on March 3rd, we’ve rounded up some purrfect wild and wonderful cat knitting patterns to sink your hooks into! 

Established by the UN General Assembly, this global celebration is all about drawing attention to endangered species and what we can do to protect them. What better opportunity to shed light on our beautiful planet’s wild plants and animals than knit your very own nature loving project!? 

We were thrilled to discover that this year’s theme is “Big Cats!” From snow leopards and jaguars, to majestic lions and cuddly tigers – which can only mean one thing – time to knit cats!

We’ve rounded up these fabulous jungle cat patterns for you to try. Don’t forget to share your progress with us on our community!


Lion Toy

This cuddly lion is the perfect companion for every adventure! Knitted with super chunky yarn and big needles, this friendly fellow is knitted in no time! The felted effect comes from a quick ride in your washing machine.

Lexington Leopard Hood

This hooded cowl helps every leopard cub stay warm in cosy! And even for adults, this pattern can be a fun knit in super chunky! No matter your plan, braving the Wildlife has never been so cute and cuddly!

Tiger Hooded Baby Car Seat Blanket & Toy

Safe and fashionable travels are no problem with these cute car accessories! A hooded car seat blanket and a toy with cute tiger designs – what more do you need? Knitted in 100% acrylic DK yarn, this pattern is not only super soft, but also washable and durable!

Want to be the king of the jungle? Why not knit this awesome hooded scarf by Two of Wands? It’s not just for children, we’re sure adults would be more than happy to get their hands on one of these as well! The cute details of tail and paw make it just absolutely perfect.

Tigers have never been more adorable! These baby hat and booties, knitted flat in DK are the perfect accessories for little Wildlife adventurers.
