SquiddyCat -- a cat toy to knit & crochet

My name is SquiddyCat. I'm a new cat toy for you to knit and crochet.

The toy is knit sideways in garter stitch beginning at the head. It starts with a provisional cast on, is shaped using short rows, and ends with a three needle bindoff. Crochet the legs for a fast finish!

This is a quick and easy knit that should take less than 30 minutes.

Don't be intimidated by the advanced techniques used to construct this toy. I walk you through each technique.

You do have to know how to crochet a chain and slip stitch to make the legs.

Rated: Intermediate or advanced beginner knitter with some crochet experience

Supplies needed:
Size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles
1 double point size 7 (4.5 mm)
Size G or H crochet hook
18 yards worsted weight yarn
Large eye tapestry needle
Poly fill or stuffing of your choice

The 3 page pdf file contains written instructions and many pictures showing you how the toy is constructed.

November 25, 2008. The pattern is now available as a free download in my Ravelry pattern store.
