cat toy

i am sorry i am not able to post the exact instructions for this crochet mouse: it was a free-from project, i just made it up as i went along. i started at the nose with a chain of 3/4 stitches, closed the chain and gradually increased stitches from there. when i got to the desired circumference of the body, i kept crocheting in a spiral without increasing. at the end, i stuffed the body and then decreased dramatically and continued crocheting a chain which became the tail. the ears are crocheted straight onto the body. these make great cat toys - especially when you add some catnip to the stuffing - but i will warn you: you will encounter them all over the house and mistake them for real mice...
