Christmas Ornament Catnip Pet Toy

Lion Brand® Glitterspun® (old) - Lamé - Microspun

GAUGE:

24 sts + 32 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 5 (3.25mm) needles When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Materials are suffient for several toys.

Row 1: Knit into the front and back of each stitch - 8 stitches
Row 2: Knit
Row 3
: Knit into the front and back of each stitch - 16 stitches
Row 4: Knit
Row 5

Row 6: Knit
Rows 7-8: Change to C, Knit
Row 9-14: Change to D, Knit
Rows 15-16: Change to C, Knit
Row 17:
Change to one strand of A and one of B, and with both strands held together, knit.
Row 18: Knit 2 stitches together all across the row - 16 stitches
Row 19: Knit
Row 20: Drop B and with A only, knit 2 stitches together all across the row - 8 stitches
Row 21: Knit
Row 22: Knit 2 stitches together all across the row - 4 stitches


Cut the yarn to 8 inches, thread through a large-eyed blunt needle. Sew through remaining four stitches and tie off.

Do not cut yarn! Instead, starting at the bottom, sew the edge together, joining the sides. Stop about a half inch [1 cm] from the end.

Fill with catnip and sew to end Tie off securely and finish with end inside the piece (sew through it, pull the yarn out the other side, clip and pull so the end of the yarn is is inside the piece)
