Hi everyone!  I made another toy for my cats:



I came up with the idea to stuff it with candy wrappers because my cats were fighting over the wrappers!

I used about 6 whoppers wrappers, but you can use any 'crunchy'/heavier type plastic candy wrapper (smarties, and most 'gummy' candy ones)



Materials:

size G hook

ww yarn (i used Lion Brand Cotton Ease)

candy wrappers

 

Pattern:

with main color, 5sc in a ring

rd1:  2sc in each sc around (10)

rd2:  2sc in first sc, sc in next sc around (15)

rd3:  2sc in first sc, sc in next 2 sc around (20)

rd4-7:  sc in each sc around (20)

rd8:  sc2tog, sc in next 2 sc around (15)

rd9:  sc2tog, sc in next sc around (10)

stuff fish here

rd10:  sc2tog around (5)

rd11:  sl st to close hole, chain 20

r12:  sl st into rd11 sl st (bottom of fish) and chain 15

r13:  sl st into r12 sl st and chain 10

r14:  sl st into r13 sl st, fasten off

For the fishing line, attach any color yarn with sl st to the top of the fish and chain like 50 or so.  I made a loop at the end by just tying a knot, and i used black yarn to sew an X for the eyes.

 

The cats LOVE their crunchy candy fish!!



Thanks for looking!!
Nathalie

Using candy wrappers is a great idea!  My tabby cat loves to play with "garbage" like wrappers, twisties, the rings from milk jug lids, and especially straws. (if we don't watch our cups, the straws are gone--and the drink is on the floor) Smiley
