Sunshine’s new toy February 20, 2008

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns,kittens — gnathalie2 @ 4:53 pm

Or really i should say ‘cats love yarn so i had to make them a toy so they would leave me alone’!!  It’s cute though cause i went to Walmart this morning with Tasha and right before we were gonna leave i was all ‘wait! i forgot the jingle bells!’ (which are located at the waaaaaaay other end of the store!)

At any rate, here is Sunshine’s new toy:

It’s really easy to make and doesn’t take more than like half an hour!!!

Materials:

Size G hook

Chunky yarn in whatever colors you like (i used 4 different colors)

jingle bells (the larger ones)

Using any color:

5 sc in a ring

rd1: 2sc in each sc around (10 sc)

rd2: 2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15 sc)

rd3-5: sc in each sc around (15 sc)

rd6: (sc2tog, sc in next sc) around (10 sc)

Insert jingle bell now

rd7: sc2tog around (5 sc)

rd8 & 9: sc in each sc around (5 sc)

Repeat rds 1-9 three more times, switching colors in round 1 if you want.

Fasten off, weave in loose ends, give to a cat!

Notes:

1. Do not use stuffing for this toy because it will muffle the jingle sound.

2.  Make sure to buy the large jingle bells.  I bought mine at Walmart ($1.97) and it was the package next to the ‘regular’ sized ones.

Enjoy!

    Hey, if anyone who loves animals and loves to crochet these toys and would have the time and love to donate their work to an animal rescue, I am your girl!! We have craft tables to make money for abused and abandoned animals. I am the cat person, I have 27, and we are always looking for wonderful handmade animal items to sell so we can vet, spay/neuter/litter/and feed our rescued animals. Also, if you put some cat nip in one of the balls,,,wow!!
