Crochet a Creepy Crawly
pattern and images by Carole Terwilliger Meyers
This simple cat toy is super-easy to crochet. I recently made one for my 14-year-old granddaughter to use with her three cats, and she was delighted. She actually broke a smile when she saw it. The kitties were interested, too, as she pulled it across the floor, and especially liked watching it jump around across the rug. The pattern requires just a small amount of yard, so you can use up some of your remnants.
