Knitting Pattern for Cat or Baby Toy

Here's a pattern for a ball shape. Great for cats (with the catnip in the middle) and babies (probably better without the catnip in those circumstances)

To make a larger ball just do an extra round or two of increases, an extra couple of rows in the middle, and the corresponding extra rows of decreases.

Materials needed:

Lamb's Pride worsted weight yarn
85% wool, 15% mohair

Size 13 circular needle

Tapestry needle

Polyfill stuffing


Holding 2 strands together throughout, Co 3 stitches

Push to other end of needles

*Kfb* (6) knit in the round from here on

*Kfb* (12)

*Kfb, K1* (18)

Knit 1 row

*Kfb, k2* (24)

Knit 1 row

*Kfb, k3* (30)

Knit 3 rows

*K2tog, k3* (24)

Knit 1 row

*K2tog, K2* (18)

*K2tog, k1* (12)

Stuff with polyfill half way, make a little depression in the middle of the polyfill and put a tablespoon of dried catnip in the space. Cover with more polyfill.

K2tog (6)

Top off the stuffing.

K2tog (3)

Pull tail through the remaining 3 stitches. .

Tighten the ends and close any gaps with the tails then pull the tails to the center.
