This just makes me laugh aloud. Like the “from the belly” laugh that shakes the whole body.

Are you thinking…who would want these? Oh…they sell like hotcakes and make the perfect gift.

I put this at the bottom of the list as this ones leaks over a little bit from the easy category as it works in small rounds.

There are several versions of this pattern online and Etsy but I have found a free version on Ravelry by designer Indoor Cat Crochet.

Make sure to sign up for a free Ravelry account and then you can access anything in their library.

The pattern can be downloaded in a PDF version HERE.

This is the perfect project for your scrap yarn as it doesn’t need very much. Grab some of your worsted weight yarn and a H (5.0mm) crochet hook
