Knitting Kittens is a 750 piece puzzle from Buffalo Games and part of their Cats Collection series. The puzzle features three kittens playing with strings, yarns, and ribbons on a multi-pattern quilt. The colors are bright and bold and palette covers the full rainbow spectrum. The illustration makes you want to snuggle up to the kittens and play with them.

However, on a more serious note. Strings, yarns, ribbons, and other long filaments are dangerous to cats, especially when ingested. The string can disrupt their digestion and get caught in their gastrointestinal tracts. Due to cat’s barb tongue, it is hard for cats to spit out foreign object unless they throw up or pass it out. Therefore, don’t let cats play with strings or yarns unsupervised and secure those times .

Build

The strategy for solving Knitting Kittens was to sort the pieces into the following piles: 1) border, 2) kittens, 3) strings, yarns, and ribbons, and 4) quilt. The border was assembled first, followed by distinctive strings, yarns, and ribbons. Next were the kittens and quilt.

Difficulty

The puzzle was harder than it looks as the assumption was that the kittens’ distinctive colors would make it easier. However, the quilt consisted of repeating patterns, that took a bit longer to properly sort and assemble. Overall, it took three puzzlers, over three hours (03:05:48) to complete. Unfortunately, the elapse time reported in the video is off as timer was not resumed for about twenty two minutes. In the time lapse video, the quilt was the last part to be completed. Typically for Cats Collection, the cat is usually the last.
