Quick to crochet, this toy will keep your cat moving and entertained for hours. Made with less than 10 yards of worsted weight yarn, these mouse tails 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 is easy 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 BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY working in the round magic adjustable ring GAUGE While not essential for this pattern, a tighter than normal gauge will help the toy maintain its shape. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished Size: approximately 2in (5cm) wide x 1.75in (4.5cm) long + braided tail of 2in (5cm) SUGGESTED YARN 10 yards of Worsted weight
