Easy Cat Toy Knitting Pattern

This is the time of year when I focus on organizing and cleaning the house. One area that always ends up getting out of control is my yarn bin. I’m sure you other knitters can relate! In the coming weeks, I will be posting knitting patterns that use scrap yarn. The first scrap yarn pattern is for this cat toy. My cats absolutely love these and I hope yours will too!

You’ll need any #2 weight yarn and size US 3 straight knitting needles for this project. This cat toy is knit flat, then the edges are joined together and sewn closed. A stitch is added along the bottom to gather, then fiber fill is added along with catnip. Another stitch is added at the top to close the ball.
