Cat Companion - Buzzy Mouse

Updated: Jan 24, 2021


This is my second post about Breaking Cat News crochet. One of the characters, Puck, has a close bond with his toy called Buzzy Mouse. Buzzy goes most places with him and has his own cat coffee cup etc.

I wanted my own Buzzy Mouse, so I made one, and here is the pattern.

1 ball 8 ply cotton yarn - white

This pattern in worked in one continuous round. Use a stitch marker and move it up each round to indicate the first stitch of the round.

Since this is a piece of fan crochet, I do not own the copyright to this, that belongs to Georgia Dunn of Breaking Cat News, and would as that you also respect this and do not sell any items made from this pattern.
