Quick to crochet, this is the perfect toy for your cat. Made with less than 10 yards of worsted weight yarn, these mouse butts are finished faster than microwave popcorn and healthier for the feline in your life. The shape provides hours of fun for a paw to swat and a mouth to carry around the house. The braided tail provides added amusement and saves you the time of weaving in additional ends.

Use of a smaller-than-recommended hook will provide a dense fabric that holds up well to your cat’s play.

Skills required: Magic adjustable ring, working in the round, 3 strand braid

Finished Size: approximately 2in (5cm) wide x 1.75in (4.5cm) long + braided tail of 2in (5cm)

Notions: tapestry needle, removable stitch marker
