Free Knitting Pattern: Fish Cat Toy

These cat toys are quick and easy to make. They can be made out of any scraps you have lying around. Gauge is unimportant however I suggest you don’t use needles over about size 4mm as you need to ensure the stitches are tight enough to contain the stuffing. Use whatever needle size you feel is appropriate to the yarn you are using. The pink fish toy in the picture to the right is made from 100% cotton on 3.75mm needles.

MATERIALS
Scrap yarn
Needles appropriately sized for your yarn (I suggest 3mm – 4mm)
Bodkin for sewing up
