Easy Crochet Cat Toy


(This is an older blog post from my old Blog)

Easy Crochet Cat door hanging toy

this pattern is very similar but not the same as the pattern over at lion heart brands

I made this toy with  cotton yarn and a 5mm hook

begin with your chosen colour and 6 sc in the centre of a magic ring or chain 2 and 6 sc into the second ch from hook

R2 – 2sc in each stitch, finish rd with slip stitch (12)

R3 – ch1, *2sc in first, 1sc in next, *repeat around, sl st ,(18)

R4 – ch1, *2sc in first, 1sc in next 2, *repeat around, sl st (24)

R5-R7 – ch1, 1sc in every stitch, sl st (24)

R8 – Ch1,* sc2tog, sc1 in next *Repeat sl st

R9 – ch1, sc2tog the whole row

Close up the hole, fasten off or continue you with a chain for your squiggle tail

ch 21 for a short tail (floor toy)

Ch 41-61 for a door handle toy

3sc in each stitch all the way to the end of the ch

to make a strap make a slip knot on your hook, ch as many stitches as  fits around your door handle or around your wrist attach the ch ends to make a loop and sc in each stitch, when you get to the end of the ring tie off and secure onto the end of the squiggle!

i went over to michaels and i purchased a pack of paper and drew up a few templates in varying sizes

the paper i purchased was a rose colour pad with different shades of pink, my mistake was not to buy such a heavy weight paper but i wanted the colours so i knew i would endure the painful cutting of the scissors but i knew it would be worth it haha, i suggest a 80lb card stock… not a 110lb haha!

make sure you have a good amount of hot glue sticks on hand as one flower took about 3 or 4 full sticks

To learn how to make these flowers check out the tutorial below!

i ended up making 5 flowers and added a beautiful banner and a flower garland, this photo is from the end of the cake smash my “Clean up baby” portion

i absolutely love how it turned out!
