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!

Pom Pom Wreath tutorial

It takes about 50-60 pom poms to make this wreath depending on how full you want it to be

When creating your pom poms be sure to leave a long tail of thread or wire so you can use that to attach it onto your wreath form, This wreath form was from michaels, i bunched them up about 3 together, i used 3 different yarns for this one, 1 Cream ball – Charism by loops and thread, 1 White ball – charisma by loops and thread, and a bernat blanket yarn in a cream colour

to make your pom pom smooth and fluffy like i did check out my prior blog post where i show you how to do it  POM POM TUTORIAL

I used floral wire to make and attach my pom poms as shown its nice a strong and i dont have to worry about it snapping if i were to use a thread or yarn, because i used the wire it will create a surface that can scratch your door so after i create my entire wreath i will put felt or fleece on the back to create a barrier between the wires and the door

i kinda want to smoosh my face in it

i just cut my felt and hot glued it onto the back to cover up the wires
