Hi guys!  I made a toy for my cats this morning and it only took like half an hour!!



Here is the pattern:

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!

Very cute, but when I saw the picture...*gutterbrain* 
Seriously, though, that's cool and I'll have to make one and find a cat to play with.  There are enough sewerkitties on campus, so I'll work something out.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
