Amigurumi Mouse Cat Toy Reviewed by Christina Albanese on 2015-01-25 *****
I made this pattern for a friend's cat. It was very quick and easy to follow--I finished it in a few hours. I wanted the size of the toy to be a bit larger so I increased to 36 stitches instead of 24 and added a few more rounds of single crocheting before decreasing. After single crocheting 2 together to end up with 6 stitches, I used a darning needle to weave the yarn through and close the bottom a bit tighter and then pulled the end through for the tail. I would recommend this pattern and I hope the cat enjoys playing with it as much as I enjoyed making it!
