Bat cat toy

bat cat toy 1

My dad recently got a lovely little rescue cat called Lorelei. Naturally she needs toys. Dad made her a box tunnel, I made her this. Seems appropriate seeing as Halloween is coming up 🙂

This pattern requires 8 ply black and white wool. You will need a 4mm hook. The pattern is written in American crochet notation.
