Wonton SIZE One size fills all. FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Unfinished: 5 inch square. Finished: 2.

5 inch triangular wonton shape MATERIALS Plymouth Encore [75% acrylic, 25% wool; 200yd/m per 100g skein] ; color: 256 [cream]; 1 skein [or scrap yarn totaling 18 yards] 1 set US #5/3.75mm straight needles cotton balls, yarn scraps, of fabric bits for stuffing catnip tapestry or yarn needle GAUGE 24 sts/30 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch A note about gauge: For goodness sake, do not go out and buy yarn for these projects if you have any sort of stash. These are perfect projects for using up the yarn at the end of a skein. If you don't have worsted weight yarn like I used, don't fret. You can still follow the pattern, though you may end up with a slightly smaller or larger cat toy. The important thing is to make sure the gauge is much firmer than is normally required for the yarn you are using. If you knit these projects in the normal gauge for the yarn, your cat toys will be too loose and you will end up with catnip all over the floor. The yarn I used normally calls for US size #8 needles and a gauge of 20 sts = 4". As long as you are knitting these projects in a tight gauge, go ahead and use whatever yarn you've got. DIRECTIONS CO 30 sts. Work in St st for 35 rows, or until piece measures as tall as it is wide. BO all sts. FINISHING Fold your square diagonally to form a triangle. Sew the seam up one side of the triangle. Pour a little bit of catnip into the triangle, then put some of your stuffing on top, and add more catnip. Being careful not to dump catnip into your lap, sew the other side of the triangle closed. Pull the far corners of the triangle together to form wonton shape. Hold the corners together while you sew them together, working your needle on the "inside" of the corners so your stitching won't be visible. Give to happy cat.
